About

This is the car we drag race. It is still curently licensed. We've run this car since 1991 with engines varying from a 351W to a 408W...the current engine is a 401W.

We bought the car in 1988 and stripped it down in two weeks...it took us three years to get it back together and to the track.

Counting the Points Series and the Fall Series we'd fininhed first 9 times and runner-upped another 4 or 5 times over the years bracket racing.
We now are concentrating on the NMCA and Midwest Open Comp Series events rather than the brackets....The PRO-TREE is much, much funner!!!!!!

We won an IHRA National event, an NMCA National event, and are looking forward to many more victories in the future!!!!!
