July Racer Updates

By: Alex Healey | 07/09/2015 < Back to Motor Life Home
Every time we search for racers who are having success with Holley products, you can just about guarantee that at least one of the KB Racing NHRA Pro Stock cars and their Dominator carburetors will be a part of the news. This month is no different, as both Greg Anderson and Jason Line's Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros are finding success in the class. Anderson sits atop the Pro Stock standings after winning at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio. Line isn't far off of the pace, down 165 points to Anderson which places him third in the points standings. On the year, Anderson has tallied four wins and three runner-ups while Line has accrued three wins and one runner-up. After getting off to a blazing hot start, runner-upping at Round 1 in Long Beach and winning Round 2 in Atlanta, Aurimas "Odi" Bakchis and his Holley EFI-powered S14 Nissan has maintained a pace to keep him in contention for the Formula Drift championship. After being ousted in the round of 16 at Round 3 in Orlando, Odi rebounded with a top-8 finish at Wall Speedway for Round 4. Bakchis sits in second place overall, putting him in prime position to make a run at the championship over the last three events of the Formula Drift season. After winning the first Holley EFI Real Street race of the Chevy Performance Challenge Series in 2015, Jessie Coulter had to fill some time due to the second race of the series being pushed back thanks to Tropical Storm Bill wreaking havoc all the way up to Indianapolis, IN. The Outlaw Street Car Association's 4th of July Blowout race just happened to be at Coulter's home track, Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY. After doing a little work to make his combination fit the OSCA rules, which are slightly different than those of the Real Street class that Jessie normally runs, and adjusting the tune up in his Holley Dominator ECU he showed up for qualifying and promptly put a nearly 0.2 second gap between himself and the rest of the field. While cutting through the field like a villain in a slasher flick, Coulter set a class record by going 5.26 in the 1/8. In the finals, Coulter met Martin Connelly. Even though Jessie ran another fantastic race, Connelly's superior reaction time gave him enough of a jump to stay in front of Jessie to earn the event win.
