Alund Wins at 4-Wide Nationals with Holley Gen 3 Dominator

holley_logo300The KB/Summit Racing Equipment Camaro driven by Jimmy Alund, won Pro Stock at the 5th Annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals held in Concord, North Carolina, April 13, 2014 with a pair of Holley’s new Gen 3 Ultra Dominator carburetors.

Driving in relief for Greg Anderson, who continues to recuperate from a medical procedure, Alund piloted the Camaro with a 6.562 second E.T. at 211.59 mph to beat the rest of the field, and added to the impressive list of wins the team has posted while using Holley’s Gen 3 Dominator carburetor. These include teammate Jason Line’s win at the 2014 Winternationals, and a win at the 2013 NHRA Fall Nationals.

“The Holley Gen 3 Dominator is showing it’s potential in one of the most demanding forms of racing,” says Bill Tichenor, Director of Marketing at Holley Performance. “Pro Stock requires a carburetor to not only make power, but it must make consistent and drivable power.”

Aside from the ability to fully adjust the Gen 3’s billet aluminum metering blocks, the carburetor’s main body is 5/16-inch taller than the previous generation carburetor, which allows for more air to flow into the engine. The fuel bowls offer 20% greater fuel capacity and nine other new features. The carbs are all-aluminum which makes them 3.8 lbs. lighter than early Dominator models.

Built for all-out racing applications, the Gen 3 Ultra Dominator carburetors also feature modified skirt boosters on the 1350 CFM & 1475 CFM models to maintain a strong fuel signal, and come ready for factory-style TPS mounting for use with data acquisition systems. The carbs also have an all new idle bypass valve which offers racers full control of their idle circuit.

“We congratulate the KB/Summit Racing Equipment team on their win, and Jimmy Alund in becoming the first European winner and only the fourth non-American winner in the NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series,” said Tichenor.
