As the temperature began to plummet and the dew point began to rise, Josh Hernandez dumped the clutch on his car and made history. Hernandez drove his way to the first five-second run in the history of the Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com Pro Modified division with a 5.990, 236.80. The run will be an official record at the conclusion of the event thanks to the 6.030 he posted in qualifying.
“That felt just a little quicker than a six-second run,” Hernandez said. “It felt good from beginning to end. When I heard the guys on the radio, I immediately became awestruck. This team never lets me down. Howard [Moon] and the boys make this happen time and time again. I might as well be a sticker on the car during that run. I had a wonderful time and feel honored to be a part of history.”
Hernandez posted incremental times of .996 (sixty-foot), 2.608 (330-foot), 3.928, 188.96 (eighth-mile) and 5.046 (1000-foot).
“The numbers speak for themself and there’s nothing I can say to make this any better.”
