Wallin Drives Away with Dragster he Won at Summit Motorsports Park
Adding to the fun and fanfare of the Accel Super Series Season Championship at Summit Motorsports Park on Sept. 26 was the delivery of a turnkey dragster to Quick Time Super Pro driver Chris Wallin, who won it in the McIlvain Race Cars Super 64 presented by Mann Performance runoff held over summer.
The McIlvain Race Cars-built swing-arm mono-shock dragster is outfitted with a Mann Performance-built big-block Chevy which packs a lot of punch with its Wiseco rotating assembly, Harland Sharp rocker arms and Trick Flow Specialties cylinder heads and intake. It sips fuel via a Quick Fuel Technology carburetor, and an Abruzzi-built Powerglide and eight-inch converter spin below it. The dragster wears powder-coating by Aesthetic Finishers and a Riggeal’s Performance Fiberglass body painted by R&R Auto Body. Additional specialty items for the engine and dragster came from a host of highly recognized and respected companies, including AFCO, ATI Performance Products, Bullet Cams, RJS Racing Equipment, Accel Performance Group, B&M, Callies Performance Products, Dart Machinery, DRE Engine Diapers, Mallory, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires and Wheels, Moroso, Moser, Mr. Gasket, MSD/RacePak, Russell Performance Products, Stainless Works, Summit Racing Equipment, Parts Distributors, Inc. (PDI) and White Safety Equipment.
“I raced against all of these competitors whom I feel are the toughest in the country, so to be able to come out on top in the runoff to win this dragster feels great,” said Wallin, of Akron, Ohio. “I want to thank all of the companies and sponsors involved, as well as the Baders, for giving the racers this great opportunity.”
Wallin, who began racing at Summit Motorsports Park fifteen years ago and is assisted in his efforts by his dad, Ric Wallin, plans to sell his previous dragster, which features a big-block Chevy built by V’s House of Horsepower and a Powerglide built by Randy Biddle, and runs 7.60s.
