On October 5th-8th, racers converged on South Georgia Motorsports Park for No Mercy 8. Tons of fast cars, good times, and lots of heads up drag racing were on the menu for the weekend. Vortech racers were on the scene to represent and turn in some great elapsed times and some serious mph.
Andrew Demarco came to No Mercy 8 to run in the X275 class. Andrew and his Vortech V-30 105A-equipped Fox Body Mustang qualified #6 in the huge field of over 30 cars in attendance. Track conditions going into the 2nd round of eliminations were possibly a little too good, when a great track with killer air and a lot of Horsepower sent the car into a giant wheelie, pleasing the crowd, but putting DeMarco onto the trailer and ending his weekend.
All signs point to Marty Chance working the bugs out on his new combination, qualifying in the #3 spot in X275. With a Vortech V-30 102A behind the bumper of his Fox Body Mustang, Chance will be continuing to up his game and will be looking for a winner's circle spot soon.
Earl Stanley and his V-30 105A Supercharged Fox Body Mustang continues to impress, turning in competitive E.T's and mph, despite running one of the smallest engines in the class. Keep a eye out for them to climb the ranks on the near future.
Alton Clements, on a major high after winning the NMRA Renegade Championship in his Vortech V-30 94A Supercharged Mustang, came to No Mercy 8 to continue his winning streak. Running in Limited 275, Clements was once again on his A game, qualifying #4 and running the fastest MPH of the class for the entire weekend. Unfortunately, Alton suffered a broken crank in the first round of eliminations, sending Alton home prematurely, but allowing the rest of the class to breathe a collective sigh of relief at not having to line up next to him.
