The Triple S Team of Corey Short brought a 434 cubic inch small block Mopar to the Challenge. Feeding the stroker bottom end is a pair of Indy 360-2 cylinder heads and a carbureted induction using an Indy intake manifold and Demon carb. The deep breathing combination pulled cleanly to the top of the test range, topping the 700 horsepower mark with 707 recorded at peak. Torque production was just as beefy, with as much as 649 lb-ft on tap. The team ended the qualifying session with a score of 2659.
