As 2019 wrapped up, the smell of ambition was strong in the air as it signaled time to get back to work for the COMP Cams Dream Team. Last we checked in, the aftershock of the fire that claimed most of the Dream Team’s Mustang was starting to wear off, and a plan coming together for the rebuild.
The team announced they would dedicate January 6th though the 14th to put in the time at the Power Automedia headquarters to get the Mustang back up to snuff. With so much time already passed since the No Mercy race, the crunch means that no one rests until the Dream Team Mustang is ready to compete again.
“Reality threw us a curve-ball, just like many people get curve-balls on a daily basis,” Dream Team member Jorge Ramos shares, “We don’t give up in life. We move forward and give it our best calculated swing!”
While it feels like it’s been a while since the fire, Lights Out 11 is right around the corner, in February, and there’s still $10k on the line for one team to bring home. Two more episodes will air to detail the rebuilds, and get eager fans of the teams caught up, as the crispy cars are made race worthy once again.
COMP Cams’ Dream Team is even more motivated that ever, and highly confident in the rebuild. They see this accident as neither an advantage, nor a hinderance in their ability to win this season’s $10K Drag Shootout, but possibly a chance to reevaluate some parts of the build.
“We’re certainly going to take advantage of any opportunity that we have. I actually think we will end up with an even better car but it will be certainly burned up looking and horrid,” said Keith Barry.
