Pro Stock stat of the day - This is now the furthest into a season Jason Line has gone without winning a race since his full time Pro Stock career started in 2004.

To further that, this is the first time since 2000 that Greg Anderson or Jason Line have not won within the first 8 races of the season.

The Chevy Camaro extends its win streak to 42 races, the longest of any make or model in class history. It has also won 93 of the last 100 races. I'm not trying to start another hate war about "which color blob representing a camaro is going to win this week?", but the facts kinda speak for themselves.

You said it. And does TAD even have the RF Shutoff boxes? I don't know on that. You'd hope the engine would die when its upside down but it could run for awhile actually right? Imagine flying through the air upside down trying to hit the fuel shutoff! It just folded that wheelie bar right over too.

They have the kill boxes on all of the alcohol and fuel cars that the crew or tower can activate it in the case of a crash. I believe it was definitely used when Dixon had his crash at Vegas last year. I always panic when I see a car turn around facing the starting line.

Anyone notice a trend here in Pro Mod???

1. Chad Green, Chevy Camaro, 5.762, 250.13 vs. 16. Clint Satterfield, Camaro, 5.860, 251.86; 2. Steven Whiteley, Camaro, 5.782, 252.28 vs. 15. Todd Tutterow, Camaro, 5.858, 244.25; 3. Rickie Smith, Camaro, 5.800, 248.43 vs. 14. Harry Hruska, Camaro, 5.856, 247.57; 4. Danny Rowe, Camaro, 5.808, 250.00 vs. 13. Mike Janis, Camaro, 5.853, 241.71; 5. Bob Rahaim, Camaro, 5.815, 248.66 vs. 12. Mike Castellana, Camaro, 5.833, 249.39; 6. Jeremy Ray, Chevy Corvette, 5.818, 247.16 vs. 11. Shane Molinari, Pontiac Firebird, 5.833, 252.57; 7. Sidnei Frigo, Corvette, 5.821, 251.11 vs. 10. Steve Jackson, Camaro, 5.823, 248.02; 8. Khalid alBalooshi, Camaro, 5.821, 248.25 vs. 9. Jose Gonzalez, Camaro, 5.822, 250.83.

I really can't wrap my head around it. What is with the god dam Camaro obsession? Think outside of the box, for once, please!

So I got a bunch of money laying around and I'm thinking about going drag racing. I know, I'll race Pro Mod with a 67-69 Camaro. That will shake things up. No one has ever seen one of them before. Maybe I'll put bogus Yenko stripes on it too!!!

Oh you guys have seen too many old Camaros? Okay, I'll build a late model Camaro. I know no one in the trailer park has seen one of them before!


Is there something in the water?
