Indianapolis, IN – Sportsman racers took FAST™ to the winner’s circle in 19 different classes during this year’s edition of the U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, with one competitor setting a world record.
The FAST™ commitment to sportsman racing was on display throughout the entirety of the 60th anniversary running of “The Big Go.” Vehicles featuring the EFI leader’s XFI™ system took a variety of class wins, while FAST™ techs were on hand tuning setups between rounds. The brand’s commitment to its customers with service at the track played a large role in dialing in each car just right for its quarter-mile pass. These smallest of adjustments often spelled the difference between moving to the next round and putting the vehicle on the trailer.
One of the top efforts was turned in by P.B. Candies, who made the fastest pass in NHRA Super Stock history with a 7.859-second run at more than 170 MPH in his 5.4L Supercharged Super Cobra Jet.
“We are just as passionate about supporting the efforts of our customers as they are about racing,” said FAST™ Sales Manager, David Page. “It’s always a great feeling to know that we played a role on a winning team.”
