On the first day of Drag Week 2013, Tom Bailey and engine builder Steve Morris ran the quickest time ever at the event, 6.72 seconds at 214 mph. What everyone wondered is if the car would survive Drag Week’s 1,200-mile drive, so HOT ROD followed them for the first 220-mile trip. With its Gear Vendors overdrive, 3.89 gears, and 35-inch tires, it cruised 80 mph at 2,500 rpm. The only problem was a few blown fuses from a dead electric fan. The car runs a Steve Morris 615ci big-block with 14-degree heads and twin turbos.
