Don't Sell The Race Car!! Date: February 26th, 2010
At the Arizona Nationals this past weekend, the Top Dragsters made their official entry into the world of NHRA drag racing, and while Denny Hills was the number one qualifier with a 6.03, one of the cars that got everyone's attention was the one driven by Phil Unruh. Phil, from McPherson, Kansas, checked in with a 6.597 at 207.75 miles per hour, and that was good enough for the fourth spot in the field. "I used to run a car very similar to this and it seemed like a natural to step up when NHRA announced the class." Phil's car, which is painted just like the Super Stock Camaro that he has raced for years, not only looks good and runs well but it is obviously very well constructed.
