This week on PowerNation Courtney welcomes NHRA drag racer Nicole Lyons and her 1600 horsepower Royal Purple Monte Carlo. It has a 665 cubic inch engine with 18-1 compression that runs the ¼ mile in 6 seconds! Nicole is the only woman to race NHRA Division 2 Top Sportsman and she’s the only African-American to race NHRA Top Sportsman. She also made history as the first African-American woman to finish in the top ten in the Wheelin’ Series Limited Late Model. And she’s a gearhead! Taught engine and car building by her father Jack Davis, she owns Cole Muscle Cars in Los Angeles where they build everything from muscle cars to hot rods to classic cars from the ground up. And she just opened CMC in Atlanta which will restore exotic cars, like Lamborghinis and Bentleys. She builds them, she races them, and she’s on PowerNation this week.
