At Bradenton Motorsports Park, Pro Stock Legend Larry Morgan Blasts 1969 Chevy in Sizzling Time
VERNON, Calif. (PRUnderground) January 25th, 2019
When Coast Packing Company’s ’69 ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro queues up for a run, you best not blink.
During testing at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida on Wednesday, the modified Chevy matched the world record for the quickest centrifugal supercharger-powered door car, with a 3.67 elapsed time at 200.98 mph. This go-round, Pro Stock legend Larry Morgan was behind the wheel, spelling Coast Packing CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson, who previously recorded a 3.755 @200 mph at the Atlanta Dragway last April – then the quickest centrifugal supercharged Pro Charger-equipped door car in 1/8th mile drag racing.
As always, Jason Lee of PTP Racing handles the tuning with a Haltech Elite 2500. Improvements on the 2570-pound racecar for the 2019 race season include chassis updates, refinements and weight reduction by Tim Lyons at Lyon Custom Motorsports, with a Noonan Engineering 4.800 bore space 526 cubic-inch Hemi providing the power.
As recapped by Mike Galimi of RacePagesDigital, ”Coast Packing’s R&E Racing team made a big noise last year in NMCA competition with Gustafson behind the wheel. They scored a win during the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals and crushed the door-slammer record for centrifugal supercharged combinations for most of 2018 with a 3.755 at 200 mph run.”
Back in Bradenton, the 2019 season is just getting under way. Stay tuned for what figures to be, in Gustafson’s words, “an awesome year ahead.”
