Tommy Turner and the Turner Racing Team won the Top Sportsman class at the 34th Annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals, held May 16-18 at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. Turner and crew had switched to Holley's Dominator EFI only weeks before the event, and made a visit to Holley's R&D facility to fine tune the normally aspirated 904 cubic-inch Steve Schmidt Racing engine. “Holley's Dominator EFI system was very consistent last weekend," says John Gilford, Turner Racing Crew Chief. "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." The 904 Cubic Inch engine in the Turner Racing Pontiac GXP makes over 1,800 horsepower using the Holley Dominator EFI system. "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," says Steve Schmidt of Steve Schmidt Engines. "We have taken many engines and converted them from other brands of 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 3,500 horsepower twin-turbo Outlaw Radial engines, Holley EFI is our choice." The Holley Dominator EFI Vehicle Management System works with all engine applications, from street to unlimited high–end racing. The system is easy to use, and has nearly unlimited capabilities to control normally-aspirated single or dual throttle body applications, as well as engines with any supercharged, turbo, nitrous, and water-methanol power adders. The Dominator EFI also controls GM transmission functions, drive by wire throttle bodies and features inputs for data acquisition and more. “We’re also grateful to Holley for having their people available to troubleshoot with us, and get us up to speed quickly," says John Gilford, Turner Racing Crew Chief.
