Team ProTorque Dominates Major Events in September
ProTorque’s REVOLUTION torque converters powered NHRA Pro Mod racers to three victories with Brad Brand capturing Indy, Leah Pruett on top in Charlotte and Troy Coughlin (above) sealing the deal in Kansas. Adding to this dominating performance, Donnie Walsh qualified number one at all three consecutive races.
Nothing showcases ProTorque’s ability to manage power delivery better than “small-tire” racing. The much-anticipated and anxiously-awaited “Radial Revolution No Mercy III” showdown at South Georgia Motorsports Park pitted the world’s fastest Outlaw 10.5 and Drag Radial cars against each other. When the smoke finally cleared, Team ProTorque’s Tim Lynch had posted low ET at 4.22, then plowed through a tough 32-car Outlaw 10.5 field to defeat ProTorque Teammate Mark Kyger in the final.
In Radial vs the World, Team ProTorque teammates Kyle Heutell and Frank Soldridge met in the final with Kyle taking the win and Frank the runner-up spot. Other ProTorque highlights at No Mercy included Jason Enos posting the top speed of 187 mph in Outlaw 10.5, Kyle Heutell setting the NOS Outlaw 10.5 ET record at 4.30 seconds and Steve Jackson qualifying number one in Radial Vs The World.
September also saw many Team ProTorque racers set new milestones including Sal Patel’s Viper becoming the first IRS car in the sixes with a 6.98 at 207-mph run at MIR. Here’s a partial list of Team ProTorque’s outstanding success in September:
