Longtime NMCA Pro Street standout Jeff Lutz was on the track at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio earlier this week testing in preparation for the upcoming NMCA World Finals event at Lucas Oil Raceway this weekend. According to the NMCA’s website, Lutz was able to click off a 6.05 at 242 mph and a 6.04 at 241 mph during the test session. The badass ’69 Camaro Lutz drives has a 540 cubic inch Musi engine with all of the latest go-fast tricks and is pressurized by a pair of 88mm huffers from Precision Turbo. Tuner Patrick Barnhill makes it all talk to each other by working his magic on the BigStuff 3, and is confident that the team is on the right track.
Last year’s No. 5 points finisher, Lutz currently sits fourth in the points chase in Kooks Headers Pro Street, but does not have a chance to catch current number-one Chris Rini. Lutz has struggled to get the car lined out for much of the year but is finally on the right track with Rini and Monte Smith’s help. They are trying out Mickey Thompson’s new 34.5″ slick and managed to clip off a stout 4.02 at 193 mph in the eighth-mile on the 6.04 hit. Lutz is shooting to be the third Pro Street car into the fives this weekend at the event and if his testing results are any indication, he won’t have any trouble getting there on the famous Indianapolis racing surface
The NMCA World Finals take place this weekend, October 12-14 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana.
