ATI’s Chief Operating Officer, JC Beattie Jr, had a great weekend behind the wheel of his Drag Pak Challenger #047. The Shop Hemi and Modern Street Hemi groups put on a special event during the NMCA MIR races this past weekend. There were various dial indexes for late model Hemi’s ranging from 9.5 to 15 seconds, so there was a class for everyone. The ATI Performance Products Drag Pak fell into the Nitrous Outlet Unlimited class this year running against other late model Hemi’s with turbos, superchargers and lots of spray!
The Drag Pak was able to qualify number two at a 9.92 behind the Arrington Challenger, which ran a killer 9.69. However, when the final round ended the ATI Challenger stood in the winner’s circle. Later that night, the other 3 class winners all raced in an Index style format for “King of the Hill” honors where Beattie and his Challenger were able to snag a second win. Two wins in one night for the ATI Drag Pak set the goals for the season.
The ATI Drag Pak Challenger runs a Gary Stanton Racing built 370ci Hemi motor in legal NHRA Stocker trim, with Fuel Injection via AEM and Devin Pearce. The Challenger is equipped with an ATI 8″ Treemaster MRT converter and ATI built Ultra Lightweight Competition 904 Transmission using new Super F synthetic fluid. Of course there is a Super Damper on the front and the ATI custom Drag Pak Starter as well. JC and the Challenger get great support from Moser rear ends, Moroso, Racepak, Manley, Mark Williams drive shafts, Rinehart’s Performance, MPR Racecars, XS Batteries and Joe Gibbs Driven lubricants. Thanks to everyone for the help!
