SPEED TECHNOLOGIES BRINGS TWO CARS ACROSS THE FINISH LINE AT SCORE
TERRIBLE'S PRIMM 300
The V-10 Dominator Completes its First Race and the HMS Avenger Takes 11th Place
Primm, NV (September 9th, 2008) -- The SCORE Terrible's PRIMM 300 was a milestone race for Speed Technologies -- they didn't break any records or achieve a podium finish, but their most powerful and highly watched car, (#122) The Dominator driven by John Herder, made it across the finish line for the first time since the car joined the team at the 2007 Baja 1000. One of only four in the world The Dominator is a powerful beast --- and along with that power came many mechanical challenges that the Speed Technologies team had to overcome.
"Kevin Singleton, owner of Exotic Engines and partner of Speed Technologies, spent the last few weeks adjusting the clutch on The Dominator, the main problem since day one, and fine tuning it so that it could handle all the power of the engine," said Dominator driver John Herder. "We took it nice and easy this race -- we wanted to find out if the modifications were on target and our main goal was finishing the race and bringing The Dominator across the finish line. Now that we're on our way you bet you're going to see this one of a kind vehicle take a home a well deserved and long overdue victory."
The four lap race challenged drivers with grueling 100 degree temperatures coupled with a dusty track and pour visibility, but bringing both these cars across the line was well worth the effort.
"The HMS Avenger drove pretty well today --- we didn't have a lot of mechanical issues besides losing a serpentine belt on lap two," said Driver of Record of Chuck Dempsey. "We're working on our suspension, as there are some problems we are trying to work out, but once we get that dialed in we will be on target. Thanks to Toyo Tires we had no flats and the entire pit crew did a great job."
