What could arguably be the last great milestone in street car drag racing was achieved last week as Tom Bailey went a 5.998 @ over 250 mph on the final day of Drag Week 2019. This marks the fourth Drag Week title for Bailey and the second in this car, the street legal Pro-Modified "Sick Seconds 2.0" Camaro. Averaging low six second passes all week, the car was reliable on its 750+ mile journey from Virginia to New Jersey and back. With the five second barrier achieved, Bailey's goal for next year will be to average high five second runs for the entire event while still surviving the long drive in between.
The new engine combo has proven itself to be much more reliable than the older 615 cubic inch mill and once the chassis is sorted to handle this much power output it should have no issue clicking off lower E.T.'s. We congratulate Tom on his epic pass and wish him the best of luck on his search for a five second week average and potential fifth championship next year.
