DMC Racing Making Strides On David DeMarco’s Outlaw 10.5 Buick

One of the biggest stories coming out of the DMC Racing camp is David DeMarco’s big bodied Buick making the change from twin turbochargers to a supercharged combination.

DeMarco, long time regular in the Outlaw 10.5 category, has been campaigning a twin-turbocharged setup for the past few seasons. Rolling into the offseason, David and team are looking to upgrade and dive head-first into the popular style of heads-up racing. Outlaw 10.5 is still alive and well in the northeast portion of the country with Cecil County, Atco and other tracks running the category on a monthly basis with solid purses.

DeMarco - Blower PhotoDMC Racing has been the long-time shop of choice for the DeMarco family, who has the Outlaw 10.5 Buick along with a Ford Mustang that they compete in Outlaw 275-style classes with brother, Andrew Demarco, at the wheel. The newest challenge is to turn the Buick into a lean, mean, fighting machine that is purpose-built for Outlaw 10.5 but also has the possibility to strap on a set of 315 Drag Radials and entertain some Radial vs. The World action.

David made the decision to leave the twin-turbocharged combination and called upon Bob Mason of Mason Racing Engines to provide his new alcohol-burning, blown engine. The entire combination was created by long-time crew chief, Lonnie Haude, who is also in charge of the tuning duties for DeMarco.

Along with the new powerplant, DeMarco is also making other updates to the car, most of which he is being very secretive about. As any competitive racer would, DeMarco is not wanting to give away any of his secrets to have the “edge” leading into the 2015 season. He also spoke about having to change his driving style due to the change in power plants.

“No more winding up a turbo,” he said. “Now it’s just go into the beams and stab that pig!”

The current plan for DeMarco’s Buick is to have it on track in the next few weeks down south to begin winter testing to start fresh and prepared leading into next season.
