VIDEO FEATURE; WHAT INSPIRES A MAN TO BUILD A 5.8-SEC, 240 MPH TANK?

 In the grand scheme of motorsport aerodynamics, a 1957 Dodge Saratoga has as much aerodynamic advantage as a boat anchor. On Saturday Peter-Kapiris-E110611G-4755afternoon at the ANDRA Castrol Edge Winternationals, a boat anchor has never been more proficient.

Peter Kapiris, a mainstay in Aussie Top Doorslammer competition, drove his lumbering beast to the top of provisional first session qualifying with a 5.859 second pass at 246.44 miles per hour.

Kapiris beat out 18 other drivers looking to find a spot in the provisional and rain-delayed field. The event is rescheduled for July.

“It’s pretty tough just to qualify in the show and this event, the Castrol Edge Winternationals is the biggest meeting of the year,” Kapiris said. “It’s just a big honor even to qualify because the competition is so tough.”
