So, after spending a good portion of the year on the sidelines, with our race partners at Fark’s Supercars making their move to their new race shop in Keyport New Jersey, the urge to get ready for the annual Import vs Domestic “World Cup” race in Maryland couldn’t have been stronger. With one win and two runner-up finishes in the previous four years, our ability to take home the win was at the forefront of what we were thinking. It motivated us to get ready and prepare to battle with what we quickly learned was by far, the toughest field we’ve ever encountered in the Street Fighter category.
We came, we saw, we conquered, but not without some challenges along the way. While waiting for our new Dart solid aluminum block to arrive, time ran short and we were forced to borrow a Dart Iron water block with near identical dimensions and specs from our friend and Fark’s team member Chris Nagawiecki. Durability was no concern but setting up our chassis for the additional weight (170lbs.) was. It didn’t matter as the Fark’s team whipped out the scales and went to work. When it was all said and done, Team ARH/Fark’s set our personal best ET and MPH running 7.26 at 187 mph. We also set our 1/8th mile personal best at 4.65 at 152.
With a 32 car field and 5 rounds of racing, one being a bye, we won the Street Fighter class and took home the victory!! We’re very proud of our race team and we’re especially proud of the products we manufacture.
