    Default West Coast Sand Drags

    Hey everyone. Just thought I'd throw the info out there to anyone interested. Coming up in a few weeks on the Feb. 3rd weekend are the sand drags out in Dome Valley, Arizona (welton/ yuma area).

    Event is the 3rd annual Top Fuel Shootout: AZ vs California. All classes welcome.
    Anyone interested in coming out and seeing a different twist on drag racing. more info can be found at nsdn.us or domevalleyraceway.com


    Also Myself and our team will be there. We are Cronin Racing. We are a two car team participating in the A/Fuel-Fast Four catagory. We took the points championship last year and ran the quickest et, since the world record was set, in 10 years last season at this track. We run 100 yards in the DIRT. Our full length dragsters run 3.0 liter 4-cyl making 1450hp to the tire. We run on methanol and 40% nitromethane. A llittle tech. info on our points champ. car:

    250" custom slip joint chassis, known at the track as Meltdown # 22........3250cc pauter big block flat four cyl.92mm pauter crank, 4.0" pistons, 6" pauter rods, pauter 1.6 roller rockers, stage III dry sump oil pump, Enderle 150A fuel pump.10" crower pedal clutch, trick titanium bell housing, Halibrand quick change rear end, lenco 2-speed auto- air shift. 88mm garrett turbo, 45lbs of boost, 40% nitromethane. 34.5x16x15" Mickey Thompson rear tire with 16-"Hooker" paddles.
    Best E.T 100yds: 2.791 @ 122mph

    My Car
    245" custom rigid chassis. 2786cc Pauter big block/ auto craft heads. 86mm Scat crank, 3.93" pistons, 10% nitromethane, 72mm Turbonetics, 32.5x14x15 M/T tires with 16 hookers.
    Auto craft dry sump oil pump, 0 hilborn pump. Best E.T in 100yds: 2.86 @ 108mph

    We have a full field of 4-cyl machines showing up in Feb. to fight for the title of Fast Four Champion 2012 trying to take home a $3,000 purse for winning the points.

    Also a little about the classes, everything from a stock jeep to a full blown Top Fuel Dragster, I mean, this is the top fuel shootout: AZ vs California. Come out and see the fastest machines in the dirt. The Top Fuel world record is 2.22 @ 170mph held by Scott Whipple of Canidae Pet Foods.

    Also a common boat related name who tunes for friends of ours, Eddie Knox. Currently the top notch tuner for our friends at the 2' Dolla Bill race team. Stepping up to Top Fuel is the rumer I hear. So come one come all, wristbands are cheap and there are no restrictions like NHRA. Ccome out and see the cars from 2ft away in the pits. the more the merrier.

    Here are some pics from this year of Cronin Racing
