BES Racing Engines
BES Racing Engines came to the dyno cell last this year during the finals, but fully prepared to do battle with their 401ci 4-valve Ford mod motor against the reigning scores. The initial pulls were strong, but also showed that a decision to re-time the intake cams had cost them horsepower on the top and brought their averages down. With just minutes on the clock, Tony Bischoff and crew yanked the cam covers and moved the cams back to their previous clocking and buttoned everything back up without a hitch. The lost power came back, but the final score of 2863.7 was down a few points from their qualifying score and was not high enough to catch the 4-valve Fords fielded by Jon Kaase and Accufab. It was, however, good enough to secure a third place standing.
