The Smith brothers just announced they are having a 26 Joker built for OPA class 6. Can't wait to see it!

Heater, I disagree with your assumption that everyone is running over 500 horsepower. When I raced in 2009, (I sat out 2010) I had a stroked BBC, Gen 4, 496 CID with peanut port cast heads. I don't know what the horsepower was?? Most guessed 450. Any guess's?? I was somewhat competative-with a couple of 3rd place finishes, and 1 break-out for the year. I'll be back in 2011 in the lil yellow Sunsation, 606 Lock'd Up
