We are proud to announce signing on another top competitor, and former 10.5 Champion, Tim Essick to our stable of TurbosmartUSA Team Members.
Tim was up against another Turbosmart USA Team Member – Mike Murillo at the 12th Annual NMRA Ford Nationals with Murillo qualifying #1 and Essick qualifying #2. As you would expect, they ended up facing each other in the final round with Tim Essick taking the win in his first race as a Turbosmart racer.
Tim agrees that the newly installed Turbosmart decals on the hood and the good karma may have been key to his win (that and a couple of Pro-Gate50s) !
Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia played a host to the NMRA / NMCA All Star Nationals. Turbosmart -sponsored Mike Murillo was the top qualifier in the 10.5 Pro Outlaw with an amazing ET of just 6.496 which also secured him a class win.
Things didn’t go so well for Bill Lutz in the Kooks Pro Street who suffered more than his fair share of bad luck, a broken valve damaging his engine forcing Bill compete in his “backup” car on Sunday.
San Antonio based and Turbosmart-sponsored Mike Murillo has achieved what many can only dream of capturing both the NMRA Turbosmart Pro Outlaw 10.5, and the NMCA Super Street crown.
With a string of wins at the start of the season, Murillo dominated the field in Florida, Maryland, Bowling Green, and Michigan resetting both NMRA (6.638 and 217.45mph) and NMCA (6.684) records along the way.
Turbosmart would like to congratulate Mike Murillo and his team for an outstanding effort this season.
