After failing to qualify for the ARCA/Daytona race in 2008, the team has regrouped and is excited to have the chance to go back and build on what we learned the last time. First and foremost, there is a new "bullet" under the hood. This is a purpose built restrictor plate engine. It has all of the light weight and low friction parts in the bottom end and all of the top end technology obtained from the 5 time Daytona winning team of Bobby Gerhart. The engine was recently dyno tested to about 413 hp, which is close to 25 hp more than we had the last time we hit the high banks. The other area of improvement is in the front end geometry. We have spent many hours simulating the "aero-compression" encountered at 180 mph to get the proper travel of all of the suspension parts to maximize fender clearance at the same time of minimizing unwanted wheel scrub. With this combination of improvements, we hope to have a shot at breaking into the top 35 required to qualify on speed without a provisional. The test should give us a good picture of how close we are.

As usual, this is a team effort that has had help from many dedicated individuals. I would like to thank them for all of the long hours and sharing of their resources to get the needed parts and pieces.
