ProCharger Racers Forever Hold NMRA/NMCA Street Outlaw 1/4 Record

NMCA Street Outlaw story

Eric Gustafson uses ProCharger’s F-1X-12 supercharger in Street Outlaw competition. Though it’s a Fox Mustang, this one has an Chevrolet LS combination under the hood.

Inevitably, rule changes are going to happen within every series to either level the playing field, or open the rules to allow more racers into a certain class. The NMRA and NMCA make many changes prior to and in the middle of each season in the interest of fair competition and class participation.

Recently, Promedia made the tough decision to transition Street Outlaw, a traditional quarter-mile class dating back nearly two decades, to an eighth-mile. This was done both from a safety standpoint, since the cars have eclipsed the 200-mph barrier, and a recognition of the legions of eighth-mile racers out there who could easily make the switch to join some of the greatest, most high-profile racers in the nation.

Phil Hines will look to continue setting records with his ProCharger-equipped Mustang.

What this means for Street Outlaw records is that they’re reset. And guess whose power adder will forever hold the Street Outlaw quarter-mile record in NMRA, NMCA, and NMCA West competition? That would be ProCharger.

In NMRA competition, Phil Hines started out the year like he usually does, which is at or near the top of the class. He and John Urist usually battle it out all year in NMRA Street Outlaw competition, but at the NMRA Maryland event, Hines set the record with an astounding 6.802 at 208 mph. As of this writing, Hines also is the points leader going into this weekend’s NMRA Norwalk event at Summit Motorsports Park.

On the NMCA side of things, it’s another Mustang holding the record, but it’s Eric Gustafson’s Fox with an LS combination under the hood. Gustafson came out swinging at the NMCA Bradenton opener, running 6.90s to put the class on notice. Gustafson will forever hold the NMCA quarter-mile record with a 6.826 at 203 mph, which he set in Bowling Green last month.

And in NMCA West competition, James Lawrence’s Dragzine.com Camaro, which goes by the name BlownZ, closed out quarter-mile competition by setting the record with a ProCharger on board, as well.

With the records reset due to the shortened racing length, these quarter-mile records will forever stand. And now ProCharger and its customers turn their attention to the eighth-mile, where a fresh record book awaits.
