It’s always a shame to see an owner/racer selling their car that they’ve put stacks of Benjamins and countless hours of hard work into sorting out, but the positive in this particular instance is that two buyers are going to be able to purchase cars that are “ready-to-go” and perform in the Outlaw 10.5 world, while the Pro Mod world will gain two new racers.
Jason Enos’ incredible 1967 Shelby GT500 has been in the winner’s circle on numerous occasions. The car has run a best ET of 4.11 in the 1/8th mile and was constructed using the best of the best parts and pieces available. The car features a Pro Line Racing Engines alcohol-injected 670 CID engine with twin 94mm Precision Turbo Pro Mod units. The purchase of Enos’ Mustang will instantly put its buyer into the top echelon of the Outlaw 10.5 world with a proven car that is ready to go. Enos is working on building a new 1964 Pro Mod Vette out of his Victory Racecraft shop in Massachusetts to replace this car. “It’s time for a change. We want to build a new car that we can call 100% ours and race a class with a more stable rules package. Pro Mod will allow us to race in our own backyard and increase our chances or getting sponsor help. We’ve found that running 10.5 is very expensive, more so than Pro Mod, and it just makes sense for our team,” Enos explained.
Also up for sale is David Demarco’s gorgeous “Big Black” NMCA Super Street 10.5W Buick Grand National. The Grand National has a state-of-the-art 25.2 chassis and hustles down the track with motivation from plenty of Precision Turbo-boosted Pro Line big-block power tuned with BigStuff3 engine management. The car is host to a huge list of other top-shelf items like a Mark Williams Full Modular 9″ floater rearend housing, Santhuff/Penske shocks, and more.
DeMarco is also looking to change up his program and invest in a Pro Mod, and someone’s going to get a great Super Street car in the process. “I’ve been 6.51 at 233 on a really soft tune with only a 1.20 60 foot. The car has the capabilities to go 6.30′s, which we will try to achieve at MIR’s World Cup Finals in Maryland in November. We’ve decided to take the step up to the next level after that. I just want to go faster, and there are more venues for me to race at with a Pro Mod, less traveling and more money in the winner’s pot,” DeMarco says.
