Dillon Takes Another ARCA Race
How would you feel if you won 5 of your first 8 career Series races? Well if you want to know an accurate response to that question, you'd have to ask Ty Dillon. After this weekend at Chicagoland, the rookie from Richard Childress Racing can claim that accomplishment just days after graduating from high school. Dillon took the lead from Chad Hackenbracht, who had lead for an impressive 45 laps, leading the field by over 9 seconds on lap 70 before blowing his right front tire on lap 85.
The top 10 featured Maryeve Dufault (VR 12-Dodge Motorsports Dodge), Brent Brevak (Brevak Racing Dodge) and Grant Efinger (Hoosier Tire Midwest-racetires.com Dodge) at the 1.5 mile tri oval in Joliet, Illinois. At 7th, Frank Kimmel (Ansell-Menards Ford) the 9 time ARCA Champion kept himself in 2nd place in the season points standing just behind the young Ty Dillon. Tom Hessert (Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet) grabbed another top 10 finish, as he did 15 times last ARCA season. Running another great race was Andrew Ranger (Van Dyke Baler Ford) at 5th, who won the ModSpace 150 in New Jersey just 12 days earlier. Chad McCumbee (ModSpace Ford) finished 4th just behind pole winner, Josh Richards (Texas Corral-Kentucky Fuel Toyota) . Coming in 2nd was Chris Buescher (PWS Technologies Ford) who is tied for 3rd with Chad McCumbee in the overall season standings.
Mallory would like to congratulate all of the teams thank them for showing what our CT Pro Ignition trays can do each race.
3 Letters, 2 Seats: Respect the AMX| 01/10/2013
Do you have respect for the AMC AMX? You probably should. This muscled-up mutant of a sports car could handle the curves and really move off the line. AMX stood for American Motors eXperimental, and we think American Motors Corporation made the right choice not to go with AME, it doesn't sound as cool. Something that does sound cool though, is a big 390 engine in a 2-seater that was stock rated for 420 hp in the '69 SS model. This was a machine that could hold it's own against the big 3 and was far more affordable than the Corvette.

How To Choose A Drag Race Ignition| 12/03/2018
Drag racers rely on exotic fuels and high cylinder pressures to make huge power. High compression ratios, nitrous oxide and high boost pressures paired with alcohol, methanol or nitro make lighting the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder difficult. The immense pressures inside the combustion chamber will literally blow the spark out. This is where an MSD ignition really shines. Its ability to fire the most powerful and fastest racecars on the planet is legendary. MSD ignition systems can be basic, or advanced enough to control one-tenth of a degree of timing for one-hundredth of a second in any cylinder using individual cylinder timing.
