(NARRATOR)>> TODAY ON ENGINE POWER THE TRIPLE THREAT CAMARO GETS A DOUBLE SHOT OF CARBON FIBER INCLUDING A TOP NOTCH DRIVESHAFT AND UPDATED STYLING CUES. PLUS THE CREW FROM SUNNEN SHOWS OFF THE LATEST AND GREATEST IN HONING MACHINES. AND THE CHAMPIONS OF DIRT TRACK RACING SHARE THEIR ADVICE FOR RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL RACE TEAM.

(MIKE)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER. TODAY WE ARE ON THE FINAL STRETCH OF A PROJECT THAT HAS TRANSFORMED OUR BONE STOCK '73 SPLIT BUMPER CAMARO INTO A TRIPLE THREAT MACHINE. NOW THIS CAR WILL BE ABLE TO CARVE THE TIGHT CORNERS OUT ON THE AUTO CROSS TRACKS, BE WICKED FAST OUT ON THE ROAD COURSE, AND EVEN LAY DOWN A RESPECTABLE ET OUT ON THE DRAG STRIP.

(PAT)>> HANDLING, ACCELERATION, AND BRAKING ARE ALL AREAS WE DRASTICALLY IMPROVED UPON. AND WE'VE USED PARTS FROM THE BEST MANUFACTURERS IN THE INDUSTRY, AND THAT IS ALL A RECIPE FOR A GOOD RUNNING MACHINE, BUT AT THIS POINT IN THE BUILD WE NEED TO DO A QUICK RECAP TO GET EVERYONE UP TO SPEED ON WHERE WE'RE GONNA START TODAY. WHEN WE SAY BONE STOCK THAT IS EXACTLY HOW WE BOUGHT THIS CAR. IT WAS A SURVIVOR THAT LIVED MOST OF ITS LIFE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. FROM THE BODY TO THE INTERIOR THIS CAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. WE REMOVED THE ENTIRE DRIVETRAIN. BECAUSE THERE WAS NO INTENTION OF REUSING ANY OF IT AND HERE'S WHY. WE HAD THE GUYS AT STREET ROD GARAGE BUILD US A ONE PIECE CHASSIS FOR THIS CAR. IT WAS EQUIPPED WITH COIL OVERS, BIG BRAKES, A FABRICATED NINE INCH REAR, AND A SUPER NICE FOUR LINK SETUP.

THE 440 INCH MOTOWN LS WAS BUILT IN HOUSE AND CRANKED OUT 677 HORSEPOWER. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> THE EXHAUST WAS CUSTOM BUILT BY THE ONE AND ONLY RICHARD WAITAS FROM MAGNAFLOW. KEEPING THE ENGINE TEMPERATURE IN CHECK IS A FROSTBITE RADIATOR FROM HOLLEY.

(MIKE)>> TODAY WE NEED TO GET THE REST OF THE BODY PANELS INSTALLED, MOUNT THE TRANS COOLER, SLIP IN THE DRIVESHAFT, AND MOUNT A BUNCH OF EXTERIOR BODY PARTS FROM ANVIL. NOW ALL OF THIS IS GONNA HAPPEN BUT NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER. LET'S GET STARTED.

WE'RE GOING TO GET THE DRIVESHAFT IN FIRST. IT'S A THREE POINT TWO INCH CUSTOM REV SERIES CARBON FIBER SHAFT FROM QAONE. THEY ARE WOUND IN HOUSE USING A THREEM MATRIX RESIN. THE FORGED YOKES ARE CNC MACHINED SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED FOR AN 11 STEP BONDING PROCEDURE. 13-50 HIGH STRENGTH UJOINTS ARE USED FOR MAXIMUM STRENGTH AND THE SHAFTS ARE PRECISION BALANCED AND TORSION TESTED FOR VIBRATION FREE OPERATION. WE ORDERED THIS ONE WITH A 43.1 SFI RATING. THIS SHAFT WILL HANDLE THE EXTREME LOADS OF A 2,000 HORSEPOWER ENGINE. IT'S LIGHTWEIGHT AND WILL DEFINITELY ADD SOME EYE APPEAL UNDER THE CAR.

(PAT)>> A TRANSMISSION DOES HAVE AN ENEMY. IT'S HEAT. HOT TRANSMISSION FLUID CAN BREAK DOWN AND LOSE SOME OF ITS LUBRICATION PROPERTIES, AND THERE ARE ALSO PARTS INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION THAT CAN'T HANDLE THE HEAT EITHER AND WILL FAIL. NOW WHEN TOWING, OR IN OUR CASE HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING, THE TEMPERATURE IN THE TRANSMISSION RAISES DRAMATICALLY. SO TO KEEP THAT TEMP IN CHECK A COOLER IS NEEDED. THIS IS EARL'S PERFORMANCE PLUMBING TEMPACURE TRANSMISSION COOLER. IT HAS A 34 ROW COOLER CORE AND IS MADE FROM ALUMINUM FOR THE FASTEST POSSIBLE HEAT TRANSFER. IT HAS A DASH 10 ORING INLET AND OUTLET, LARGE VOLUME COLLECTOR TANKS, AND A SUPERIOR STACKED PLATE DESIGN THAT ALLOWS THIS COOLER TO HAVE THE EQUIVALENT COOLING OF ONE TWICE ITS SIZE IN A TRADITIONAL TUBE AND FIN STYLE COOLER. INSTALLATION IS A BREEZE. UP TOP THE COOLER BOLTS TO THE CORE SUPPORT. HEAVY DUTY MOUNTING TIES TAKE CARE OF THE LOWER END.

WITH EARL'S AN FITTINGS INSTALLED ON THEIR ULTRAFLEX HOSE THEY'RE CONNECTED TO THE TRANS COOLER AND THE TRANSMISSION.

ONCE THE FENDERS ARE IN PLACE AND LINED UP THEY'RE BOLTED UP FOR GOOD. THIS CAMARO IS LOOKING GREAT AND IT'S ABOUT TO LOOK EVEN BETTER.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT IT'S CLASSY WITH A TOUCH OF MODERN. THE TRIPLE THREAT CAMARO RECEIVES A CARBON FIBER HOOD AND MORE.

(PAT)>> FROM THE GET GO THE TRIPLE THREAT CAMARO WAS DESIGNED TO TAKE A CLASSIC CHEVROLET AND GIVE IT PLENTY OF MODERN PERFORMANCE WHILE STILL RESPECTING ITS HERITAGE. WE'VE GOT SOME NEW COMPONENTS THAT WILL SUIT THAT THEME NICELY. ANVIL AUTO MANUFACTURES A COMPLETE LINE OF HIGH QUALITY PARTS FOR AMERICAN MUSCLE CARS. USING CARBON FIBER, FIBERGLASS, STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS, AND BILLET ALUMINUM BRACKETS, THE GEN TWO CAMARO COMPONENTS GIVE OUR RIDE 21ST CENTURY STYLING THAT COMPLIMENTS THE VINTAGE LOOK OF OUR '73 SPLIT BUMPER. THE MATTE FINISH ON THE CARBON FIBER LOOKS GREAT. THE CENTER PIECE TO OUR UPDATED BODY PANELS IS THIS POWER BULGE HOOD, AND AT 20.5 POUNDS IT'S A REAL FEATHERWEIGHT. OVER 40 POUNDS LIGHTER THAN OUR STOCK STEEL HOOD, AND IT COMES WITH SOME OTHER FEATURES LIKE TWO AND A HALF INCHES MORE CLEARANCE THAN A FLAT OEM HOOD. IT'S MADE FROM 100 PERCENT CARBON FIBER AND COMES IN EITHER A GLOSSY OR MATTE FINISH. AND WE CHOSE THE GLOSSY FINISH BECAUSE WE WANTED THE FRONT END OF OUR CAR TO POP. THE BULLET SIDE VIEW MIRRORS GO TOGETHER EASILY. THEY ARE MADE TO FIT THE GEN TWO CAMARO AND WITH A LITTLE LIGHT SANDING THEY WILL FIT OTHER GENERATIONS OF CAMAROS AS WELL. ONCE THE INCLUDED BRACKET IS BOLTED TO THE DOOR THE MIRROR HOUSING DROPS INTO POSITION. A RETAINING SCREW KEEPS EVERYTHING IN PLACE. UP FRONT THE BUMPERETTES USE FACTORY BRACKETS FOR EASY INSTALLATION. [ drill spinning ]

(PAT)>> TO INSTALL THE SPOILER SOME BOLT HOLES ARE DRILLED INTO THE TRUNK LID. THEN THE SPOILER DROPS INTO PLACE AND IS CINCHED UP WITH ARP HARDWARE.

WHEN INSTALLING BODY PIECES LIKE THESE THERE'S AN EASY WAY TO MARK THE DRILL LOCATIONS. PLACE A DAB OF GREASE ON THE BOLTS AND PRESS THE PIECE GENTLY AGAINST THE VEHICLE. THEN USE THE GREASE MARKS AS A GUIDE FOR DRILLING. WE'LL HAVE TO DO A LITTLE WORK TO GET THIS HOOD INSTALLED BUT FOR NOW WE'RE JUST CHECKING FOR FITMENT AND LOOKS. RIGHT OFF THE BAT EVERYTHING IS LINING UP WELL. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A TIRE IN THE ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE CATEGORY AND WANT MAXIMUM GRIP IN BOTH DRY AND WET CONDITIONS THEN THE GENERAL GMAX RS WILL FIT THE BILL. AND IT HAS SOME GREAT FEATURES LIKE SMART GRIP TECHNOLOGY WITH A STRONG CENTER RIB AND STABLE SHOULDER BLOCKS. STABILITREAD TECHNOLOGY WITH AN OPTIMIZE FOOT PRINT AND 35 PERCENT LONGER TREAD LIFE THAN ITS COMPETITORS, AND SMART MONITOR TECHNOLOGY THAT WHEN THE TREAD WEAR GETS DOWN TO TWO THIRTYSECONDS OF DEPTH AN INDICATOR APPEARS THAT ACTUALLY SAYS REPLACE TIRE. LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST THEY COME WITH A 50,000 MILE LIMITED TREAD WEAR WARRANTY. BUT SINCE OUR CAMARO WILL SPEND THE MAJORITY OF ITS TIME ON SOME SORT OF RACE TRACK WE OPTED TO GO WITH THESE HOOSIER SPORT CAR DOT RADIALS. THIS IS ESSENTIALLY A COMPETITION RACING SLICK WITH A FEW HASH STYLE GROOVES IN THEM, AND THEY PROVIDE THE ULTIMATE IN GRIP ON HOT, DRY RACING CONDITIONS, AND THEY COME IN A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT COMPOUNDS. THE "R" COMPOUND, WHICH WE ARE USING, IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR ROAD RACING, AND THERE'S ALSO AN "A" COMPOUND, WHICH WAS DESIGNED FOR AUTO CROSSING. THE SIZES, 335/30 ZR-18'S IN THE BACK AND 255/35 ZR-18'S IN THE FRONT. THEY ARE MOUNTED ON A SET OF CUSTOM BUILT AMERICAN RACING VN-430 SERIES WHEELS WE PICKED UP FROM VINTAGE WHEELS INCORPORATED OUT OF SAN DIEGO. THEY'RE A STRONG TWO PIECE DESIGN AND THE SIZES ARE 18 BY NINES IN THE FRONT AND 18 BY 12'S IN THE BACK. [ drill spinning ]

(PAT)>> WE STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT TO GO TO GET OUR TRIPLE THREAT CAR ON THE ROAD, AND UNTIL THEN WE ARE GOING TO PROTECT IT WITH A NEW COVERCRAFT FORM FIT CAR COVER. THIS IS A COVERCRAFT EXCLUSIVE AND IT'S THEIR MOST LUXURIOUS INDOOR CAR COVER. IT'S MADE WITH POLYESTER KNIT WITH SPANDEX ADDED TO THE YARNS AND SPECIAL STRETCH FABRIC THAT ALLOWS IT TO FORM TO THE VEHICLE'S CONTOURS. INSIDE IS 100 PERCENT COTTON SHEARED TO A FLEECE FINISH. IT'S COVERED BY A FOUR YEAR WARRANTY AND IT IS AVAILABLE IN SIX COLORS. IT'S SUPER SOFT, HIGHLY BREATHABLE, AND OFFERS DING AND DENT PROTECTION. BEST OF ALL IT'S MACHINE WASHABLE. SO THIS COVER CAN BE MAINTAINED IN MOST FRONT LOAD WASHER AND DRYERS. THEY EVEN ADDED THE ENGINE POWER LOGO TO OURS.

(NARRATOR)>> THIS CYLINDER HONE TAKES VERSATILITY AND PRECISION TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

(MIKE)>> YOU'VE PROBABLY NOTICED LATELY BY LOOKING AROUND THE SHOP THAT WE'VE ADDED SOME MACHINING EQUIPMENT TO IMPROVE OUR CAPABILITIES HERE IN ENGINE POWER. IT ALLOWS US TO MACHINE CUSTOM ENGINES WHEN NORMALLY WE WOULD HAVE TO OUTSOURCE STUFF TO A LOCAL MACHINE SHOP. RECENTLY WE TOLD YOU ABOUT A NEW CYLINDER HONE WE PUT IN PLACE. IT'S A HIGH TECH VERSATILE MACHINE THAT WILL HANDLE ANYTHING WE CAN THROW AT IT HERE.

(PAT)>> WE'RE HERE WITH TIM MEARA AND BOB DAVIS FROM SUNNEN. NOW SUNNEN'S BEEN IN THE HONING BUSINESS SINCE 1924 AND THEY'RE HERE TO TELL US ABOUT THIS NEW MACHINE, THE SV 15.

(BOB)>> THANKS PAT AND MIKE. WE'RE REALLY EXCITED TO OUR SV 15 HERE ON ENGINE POWER. WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU.

(PAT)>> FOR TODAY'S DEMONSTRATION WE'RE USING A SMALL BLOCK CHEVY FOR PRACTICE.

YOU KNOW IN MY CAREER TIM I'VE ALWAYS USED SUNNEN HONES AND THIS IS A THIRD GENERATION CYLINDER KING BUT THERE'S A LOT OF FAMILIARITY WITH IT WITH ALL THE VERSIONS THROUGH THE YEARS. TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE LATEST.

(TIM)>> PAT ONE OF THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCES ON THE SV 15 MACHINES IS IT'S GOT A SEPARATE SPINNER MOTOR AND A SEPARATE STROKER MOTOR, AND WHAT THAT ALLOWED US TO DO IS SEPARATE THE MACHINE. WE CAN CONTROL THE FEED RATES BASED OFF THE STROKER MOTOR. WE'LL ALSO HAVE A CONTROL PANEL HERE WITH A COMPUTER THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SET YOUR SPINDLE SPEED, STROKE SPEEDS, AND DIAL IN YOUR CROSS HATCH ANGLE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. SO YOU STILL HAVE THE SAME FEEL THAT YOU'VE HAD IN THE OLDER MACHINES BUT IT GIVES YOU A LOT OF NEW ELECTRONICS AND DEVICES THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO RUN SUPER BRACES AND OTHER TOOLING.

(PAT)>> THE LEARNING CURVE ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS VERSUS AN OLD MACHINE IS VERY SHALLOW BECAUSE A LOT OF THE CONTROLS ARE THE SAME.

(TIM)>> IN THE OPERATING SCREEN WE'VE MADE EVERYTHING VERY INTUITIVE TO THE CUSTOMER SO THAT IT'S VERY SIMPLE FOR THEM TO PICK UP ON THINGS THAT THEY USED TO NOT BE ABLE TO DO. YOU KNOW, DIFFERENT OPTIONS THAT YOU HAVE NOW THAT IN PAST MACHINES, YOU'RE LIMITED BY THE CONTROLS OF THE MACHINE.

(PAT)>> WELL WE'VE GOT A PRACTICE BLOCK LOADED UP HERE. LET'S HONE SOME CYLINDERS AND SEE WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE.

(TIM)>> SOUNDS GOOD.

(PAT)>> NOW THAT WE HAVE ALL THESE SETUP ON HERE WE CAN GO RIGHT TO THE RUN SCREEN?

(TIM)>> YEAH JUST GO RIGHT TO THE RUN SCREEN.

(PAT)>> WE'LL HIT RUN. WE'RE RUNNING A 220 GRIT DIAMOND ABRASIVE TO START OUT. THE CAPABILITY OF MODERN HONING STONES HAS DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED. WHEN USED WITH HIGH QUALITY OIL THE STONES PROVIDE AN ACCURATE AND PREDICTABLE CYLINDER FINISH WITH MINIMAL EFFORT. WE ARE REMOVING FIVE THOUSANDTHS OF CYLINDER WALL MATERIAL AT THIS TIME. ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL FEATURES OF THIS MACHINE IS ITS ABILITY TO AUTO DWELL. WHEN THE HONE ENCOUNTERS A TIGHTER AREA OF THE CYLINDER IT DWELLS THERE MOMENTARILY REMOVING A BIT MORE MATERIAL, WHICH CORRECTS THE BORE'S GEOMETRY. AND BEING ABLE TO SEE THE HONE LOAD ON THE MACHINE AND SEE A REAL TIME PICTURE OF THE CYLINDER, THAT'S SPECTACULAR. ALL RIGHT, LET'S SEE WHERE WE ENDED UP HERE.

(TIM)>> NOW BASED ON WHERE WE SET OUR SIZE WE CAN CHECK THE DIAL BORE GAUGE NOW.

(PAT)>> AT FIVE THOUSAND AND A ROUGH, THAT'S WHAT IT WAS, WE'LL SEE HOW CLOSE WE ARE ON THE GAUGE. LOOK AT THAT! THAT IS STRAIGHT ALL THE WAY DOWN ALMOST RIGHT TO THE TENTH. THAT IS IMPRESSIVE RIGHT THERE. AND AGAIN SOME OF THE AUTOMATION REALLY HELPS THAT BECAUSE IT SENSES WHERE IT'S TIGHT AND KEEPS IT STRAIGHT ALL THE WAY BY AUTO DWELLING. I USED TO HAVE TO DO THAT MANUALLY MY ENTIRE CAREER.

(TIM)>> THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS IS JUST BEING ABLE TO PUT AN OPERATOR ON THE MACHINE THAT DOESN'T HAVE AS MUCH SKILL AS YOU DO PAT AND CAN EASILY PICK IT UP WITH OUT HAVING TO HAVE ANY INTERVENTION WITH THE MACHINE AS FAR AS MAKING MANUAL DWELL POSITIONS.

(PAT)>> WE TALKED ABOUT FINESSING BORES AND YOU STILL HAVE TO FINESSE SOME RACE STUFF BUT THIS TAKES A LOT OF THE GUESS WORK OUT OF KEEPING SOMETHING ROUND AND STRAIGHT. HERE'S ANOTHER WAY TO APPRECIATE THE ACCURACY OF THE SV 15.

(TIM)>> IN A CYLINDER LIKE WE JUST HONED, IF YOU TOOK A HAIR AND YOU CUT IT INTO 30 PIECES, WE JUST SAW THE TOLERANCE OF ONE OF THOSE 30 PIECES.

(PAT)>> WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT REMOVING MICROSCOPIC AMOUNTS OF METAL FROM A CYLINDER IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW MUCH DIFFERENCE THAT TINY ADJUSTMENT MAKES TO THE PERFORMANCE OF AN ENGINE.

(TIM)>> THE CYLINDER BORE IS PROBABLY ONE OF THOSE ITEMS THAT GETS OVERLOOKED A LOT OF TIMES BUT YOU KNOW THE PISTON, THE PISTON RING, AND THE CYLINDER BORE ALL WORK IN CONJUNCTION. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT WITH MAKING POWER. IF THE ENGINE'S SEALED UP TIGHT IT'S GONNA PULL MORE FUEL. MORE FUEL'S GONNA MAKE MORE POWER AS YOU KNOW.

(PAT)>> WHEN HONING IS DONE THE CYLINDER HAS THE CORRECT BORE SIZE AND A DISTINCT CROSS HATCH PATTERN IN THE WALL. THIS HELPS DISTRIBUTE OIL EVENLY THROUGHOUT THE BORE, PROVIDING A BETTER RING SEAL, WHICH INCREASES ENGINE PERFORMANCE. WE'VE JUST GIVEN YOU A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF HOW HONING WORKS AND WHAT IT DOES FOR YOUR ENGINE. LOOK FOR MORE HONING TECH ON ENGINE POWER SOON.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT, GOOD ADVICE FOR FUTURE RACE CAR DRIVERS.

(PAT)>> RECENTLY WE TOOK YOU INSIDE THE WORLD OF CIRCLE TRACK RACING AT THIS YEAR'S MODIFIED MANIA. LIKE MOST OF THE FANS IN THE STANDS WATCHING THE RACE, MUCH OF OUR ENJOYMENT COMES FROM IMAGINING WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO PILOT A 2,400 POUND RACE CAR SIDEWAYS INTO A TURN AT SPEEDS NEAR 100 MILES PER HOUR, BUT WHAT IF YOU WANTED TO TAKE THAT STEP FROM SPECTATOR TO PARTICIPANT? JUST WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE IT IN CIRCLE TRACK RACING? WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD ADVICE FROM THE RACERS AND TEAM MEMBERS THEMSELVES. FIRST OF ALL IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND WORK. MOST OF THESE RACERS ARE TOO MODEST TO BRAG ABOUT THEIR WORK ETHIC, MUCH LESS ON CAMERA, BUT JUST CONSIDER THIS YEAR'S UMP NATIONAL MODIFIED CHAMPION MIKE HARRISON. OVER THE COURSE OF A SEASON HE PARTICIPATED IN OVER 30 RACES WHILE MAINTAINING A FULL TIME JOB AS A FARMER. WHILE WE'RE USED TO SEEING HIM BEHIND THE WHEEL OF HIS MODIFIED THE REALITY IS HE SPENDS WAY MORE TIME RUNNING A TRACTOR. MOST OF THESE COMPETITORS HAVE DAY JOBS AND RACING, IT'S A LABOR OF LOVE. (MIKE H.)>> WHEN THEY THROW THE GREEN FLAG IT'S NOW. I MEAN YOU'RE GOING, AND LIKE I SAID IT'S JUST A RUSH. GETTING UP BY THE WALL, THROWING SPARKS. YOU CAN'T BEAT IT.

(PAT)>> SECOND IT TAKES FUNDING, ESPECIALLY AT THIS LEVEL OF COMPETITION. THERE IS HOWEVER SUPPORT FROM SPONSORSHIPS AND CONTINGENCY PROGRAMS. GRASSROOTS RACING IS THE HEART OF THE AUTOMOTIVE AFTERMARKET AND SUPPORTING IT IS A TOP PRIORITY.

(JIM)>> YOU KNOW IT'S JUST A CHANCE TO SPONSOR THE GRASSROOTS RACING. MODIFIED RACERS ARE GREAT RACERS THAT RACE EVERY WEEKEND AT LOCAL TRACKS, AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO PUT TOGETHER A DIFFERENT SERIES WITH SEVERAL DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS, AND AGAIN TO BE HERE AT TRICITY WITH SUCH A GREAT EVENT.

(PAT)>> FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IT TAKES A TEAM. NO ONE COULD DO IT ALONG, AND RACERS ARE QUICK TO REMIND US OF THAT.

(MIKE)>> I GET ALL THE GLORY BEING UP THE STAGE WINNING AND STUFF BUT IT'S ALL ABOUT THEM TOO BECAUSE IT'S ALL A TEAM. IT TAKES EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING TO GO RIGHT TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN THE WAY IT HAPPENS FOR US. IT SHOWS HOW MUCH THE BOYS, AND BOB AND DREW, AND BRANDON DO TO HELP ME WITH THE CAR TO MAKING SURE EVERYTHING IS TOP NOTCH EVERY TIME WE HIT THE TRACK.
