Team 25 R.M. Competition
Randy Malik came to the Street Division show with a carbureted small Block Chevy combination with Brodix 10-X heads, and displacing just 330 CID. The engine fired and ran great through warm-ups, but Randy was short of the output he had seen in pre-event testing. The team worked the carb tune looking for more, making a best peak of 496 horsepower. The team ended with a score of 2179.3.
Team 24 Weingartner Racing
Weingartner Racing came into the Street division with a 407-cube Chevrolet that looked like a solid contender, utilizing a set of Brodix heads. The engine fired and completed the warm-up process without problems, and Eric Weingartner went on to study the dyno sheets, looking for potential power. The engine's tune resulted in a peak output of 615 horsepower, but the score of 2179.3 was short of challenging the leaders.
Team 23 Automotive Machine and Performance
Buick expert Mike Phillips came ready for action in the Street division, fielding a 404 cubic inch engine that was detailed to perfection. The engine was clearly well prepared, as it responded immediately to input from the starter for the warm-ups. With the dyno sheets from the warm-ups in hand, Mike figured the tune was right in the zone, so no changes were made for the rest of the qualifying session. The engine came through with a peak output of 600 horsepower, and a score of 2252.2
Team 22 Tuned Port Induction Specialties
Clay Witt and the TPIS team came to compete in the Street division, packing a 416-cubic inch LS Chevrolet. The engine was clearly in the range during start and the warm-up pull, however the team ran into a technical difficulty with their tuning computer, making any tuning changes to the ECU impossible. The team was forced to rely on changes in fuel pressure to make crude changes to the engine fueling, showing as much as 657 peak horsepower in qualifying. The score of 2395.4 was short of that required to make the final eliminations.
Team 21 Power Shop Racing Engines
Big Joe Carrol and the Power Shop Racing Engines team brought a CHI head equipped Windsor Ford displacing 378 cubic inches. Right after the warm-up pull the team was clearly disappointed with the output and they went straight in for a jet change. On the next pull an apparently arcing coil was quickly taped in a makeshift attempt to quickly insulate it. The engine seemed reluctant to offer much more power, making a peak of 584 horsepower for a score of 2380.0, which was short of the level needed to qualify for final eliminations.
