The same week as the SEMA show every year, the Imports Vs. Domestics World Cup Finals is a quarter mile drag racing event that is easily one of the most anticipated events of the year. Racers come from all over to try their luck and compete against some of the fastest cars around. Not surprisingly, the Vortech racers in attendance commanded significant attention, set records, and took the win.The huge crowd that turned out for the event was anxious for some great racing action, and were not disappointed!
Come say hi and check out some products at the Vortech Superchargers Booth!
Alton ClementsAlton Clements came into the World Cup Finals still riding high after his NMRA Renegade Championship win last month in Bowling Green, KY. He and his Vortech V-30 94A Supercharged Fox Body Mustang are a force to be reckoned with, and it was no exception over the weekend in Maryland.Qualifying 4th with a 7.481 E.T. @ 182.38 MPH, Alton charged through the 27 car field in the Street Fighter class. Defeating Chris Boyette in Round 1, Mike Wohler in Round 2, familiar NMRA competitors AJ Wyce and Adam Arndt in Rounds 3 and 4, and defeating George Farkouh's 2010 Camaro in the finals. Alton's incredibly consistent elapsed times in each round were aided, no doubt, by the highly efficient boost coming from his Vortech V-30 94A centrifugal supercharger.The win caps off a truly exciting year of racing for Clements, plus the $5,000 in prize money certainly doesn't hurt either. Look for Alton Clements to continue his winning ways next season and beyond.
Nikki Frost "Respect the process" is what Nikki's husband Keith Fidura posted on social media following Nikki turning in a new personal best and new record for fastest Vortech Supercharged Coyote in NMRA Coyote Modified-trim. During Round 2 of eliminations, Nikki turned in a blistering 8.170 E.T. at 163.67 MPH, eclipsing the previous record of 8.187 E.T. set by Terry "Beefcake" Reeves. The process in question that Keith mentioned, has been this season of racing for Nikki. Gradually turning the car up bit by bit, consistently getting faster and faster with every outing. The process has worked for the team, approaching it scientifically, never trying to make big jumps before they were ready, learning each and every time out. Now, with a new record under their belts, Frost and her Vortech V-7 JT-B equipped 2013 Mustang GT have really begun to fly. We can't wait to see what next season holds for this team!
Craig Walls Craig Walls came out to race in the X275 vs Hot Rod class, and spent the weekend turning in low 7-second passes at over 183MPH. Walls and his V-30 102A Supercharged Fox Body Mustang will be a car to watch next season for sure.
