Within weeks of switching to Holley’s EFI system, Tommy Turner takes the win for Top Sportsman class at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, 34th Annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals. Turner and his race crew recently switched to Holley Dominator EFI and made a visit to Holley's R&D facility to fine tune the Steve Schmidt Racing engine. The 904 Cubic Inch engine for Tommy Turner's race car in the Top Sportsman class is normally aspirated and makes over 1800 hp using the Holley Dominator EFI system.

Engine builder Steve Schmidt said, "We have tested every major EFI system on the market and the Holley Dominator EFI has proven itself time and time again to be the most comprehensive, versatile and user friendly system available. We have taken many engines and converted them from 'brand-x' EFI to Holley EFI and found favorable gains in performance and tunability. Holley EFI is the only system we recommend to our customers, and the only EFI system we use on our championship winning race engines. From 500 horsepower street engines to 3500 horsepower twin turbo Outlaw Radial engines, Holley EFI is our choice."

The Holley Dominator EFI systems are designed for everything; from street to unlimited racing applications. Racers like Turner use the Dominator EFI system because it offers the most capabilities to control engine functions, whether it’s normally aspirated, turbocharged, supercharged, or even nitrous applications. “Holley EFI was very consistent last weekend. We’ll be making a few changes for our next race, and we’re confident that we’ll end up being faster than the previously carbureted setup," says John Gilford, Turner Racing Crew Chief. "We’re tickled pink that everything worked out the way that it did at the national event last weekend. We’re also grateful to Holley for having their people available to troubleshoot with us and get us up to speed quickly. I’m impressed with Doug Flynn and the rest of the Holley team getting through the first couple of days with the new Holley EFI.
