- Mo Hall keeps the candles lit on his Camaro.
Mo "Hurke" Hall is one of the most noticable racers in the Outlaw 10.5 class.
In a world of records that is led by turbocharged power plants their is still a few loyal racers making a go of it with nitrous oxide. Tim Lynch still sits atop the field in Outlaw 10.5 but the nitrous cars are sneaking up on his Proline powered Corvette. Scotty Guadagno, Charlie Dolbin and our feature racer Mo Hall are some of the fastest and most recently Hall made a huge stride in closing that gap in performance. Halls 1994 Camaro has found new life with the help of Jim Halsey and his tuning abilities as well as a new look at power management for the 2011 season.
Mo Hall of Olney, Maryland has been racing for over 10 years in a multitude of different cars but for the past seven years in his 1994 Camaro. The Camaro was once owned by Darrin Hoyle and found its way through several owners until Hall acquired it out of Virginia. In the attempt to run with the fastest outlaw cars in the country HFR Fabrication in Manchester, Maryland gave the chassis a complete overhaul. Up until late this past season there was a 706 cubic inch Fulton powerplant in place and then came the most up to date addition to team. An 820 cubic inch Fulton engine was acquired from Jim Halsey which once resided in his Pro Nitrous Camaro. One of the benefits of buying from Halsey came his years of experience with the engine and he has been a large part of making this a successful combination.

The last full race that Mo and crew attended was the ORTC race in Georgia where they ran a near career best of 4.33 @ 178mph with a 1.06 second sixty foot time. Consistency was becoming an issue with the car with all the additional power from the 4 stages of nitrous oxide so Mo felt it was time to make the next step in their racing efforts. Davis Technologies was the place of choice to call and a Davis Traction Control was installed and it has created a new page in the nitrous racers resume. A fairly simple transition has been made with the Davis installed and with the same tune as the run in Georgia, Mo ran a new career best of 4.25 @ 180mph at Cecil County Dragway. This pass was followed by numerous consistent back to back passes on a conservative tune in the Fulton powerplant. Could there be enough left to run with Tim Lynch? Our guess is yes and we look forward to following Mo’s quest to become the elite racer in the nitrous contingent.
