A nice video produced by Mark Johnson at the Hot Rod Reunion aka"Skid Mark"


This action shot was taken by Stephen Justice at the 2013 Hot Rod Reunion.  We qualified 11th and got past legendary driver Joe Lepone Jr. in round one.  We weren't able to make the call on Sunday after we discovered a broken valve train component handing Tim Krupa a single in round two.  This was our first outing with the truck and we learned a lot after three passes and who would have guessed that Joe Lepone Jr. would have been the man helping us out.  We are currently getting things ready for 2014 and we will keep you posted on our schedule.
      


HOT ROD REUNION
Our team will be competing at the 2013 California Hot Rod Reunion at the AAA Auto Club Famoso on October 18-20th.  We were invited to a 16 car Nostalgia Pro Mod class for this event.  All of the baddest west coast pro mods will be there putting on a show for the thousands in attendance.  This will be our first outing with our new 1957 Cameo pickup and we are really excited to see how it performs.  We will keep everyone posted on our progress throughout the weekend and if you don't get a chance to come down you can check it out on the web at www.bankshift.com.


Our New Ride

We just took possession of this beautiful 1957 Cameo Pickup and are switching it from a blown combination to a nitrous setup in preparation for the California Hot rod Reunion on October 18-20th.  After retiring the red 1981 Camaro at Sonoma with the car's best run ever(6.75 @ 205) we sold it and stepped our game up!  We will now be competing in Pro Modified from this point forward.  There's a lot of work that needs to be done but we are confident that we will be ready to do battle in this exciting class.  This is a 2001 Vanishing Point Pro Mod chassis that features a double frame rail, 780ci nitrous oxide engine, Bruno-Lenco transmission and a Mark Williams rear end.  It has all the bells and whistles needed to go fast and that's the plan.  We are definitely looking at running somewhere around 6.30 @ 220 at some point with this combination before we make the switch to a newer bigger engine. 




After doing some testing at the Pro Slammers second race of the season we are ready to push forward.  We made some major improvements in the chassis and in the tune-up which should yield us the results we are looking for.  Kustom Koffin Apparel is back on board with us and we look to show off some new shirts as well as putting on a show for the fans.





Mike Henry To Run In Pro Street At The NMCA West Finals

Story by J. Gordon

Bakersfield, CA –                                                

San Francisco native Mike Henry will be making his Pro Street/Pro Mod debut this weekend at the NMCA West Finals at Famosa Raceway. Henry who is a 6.90 Pro Slammers standout will be competing with some of the best drivers on the west coast. The DXL Transport sponsored 1981 Camaro will take a shot at the 1320 with a 773ci fuel injected, nitrous powered big block built by Luther Lane and Henry. As always nitrous tuner Pat Watson will be on hand while the rest of the team preps the car for competition, including his son 16yr old Michael Henry III.

It has always been Mike’s dream to compete in pro mod and with very little financial help he will make his dream come true. The car has run some good numbers in the Pro Slammers class but now they’ll have to turn up the power to compete at this level. We spoke to Henry and he had this to say, “We made some changes to the car to get it ready for this event and hopefully they work out. But our main goal is to make some good runs and qualify for the program.

I know exactly what I’m up against but I believe I have just as good a chance as any other team out there. I plan on using everything I have both physically and mentally to get the job done and with this being my first time running the class I’m real focused on the task at hand”. The team plans on making a few test hits before qualifying to work out any issues that might pop up and we wish them the best.

Throughout the 15 years Henry has been racing, he has struggled financially to continue racing but he’s one of the fiercest drivers around. He has been 6.900 in the 6.90 class at over 200mph and has won multiple events including the 2011 Governor’s Cup Championships at Sacramento Raceway Park as well as the Pinks All Out Quick 8 in 2010. Stop by and assay hello to him and his team if you happen to go to the event



As a part of a Hooters Sacramento promotion we took time out to work with a few of the Hooters girls at the 2012 Fox Hunt.  We had a couple of the work with our team and were official back-up girls for the event.


The Fox Hunt was a great event as I ran a career best and perfect 6.900 at 200mph with a .005 reaction time.  We ran into trouble in the semi- final win over Ralpf Willis and had to settle for a runner-up.
