Dodge Challenger team plan to run entire PMRA tour
A new car body is sparking a renewed effort in Pro Modified Racing Association action for the Terry Brown Racing team.
“We’ve got a new body for the car,” said crew chief Jason Greenland recently, but he would not go into specifics, other that to say the color is changing.
“It’s going to be a nice big surprise.”
But he did say that the car and team plan on running all of the 2008 PMRA events with the 1971 Challenger. The team placed ninth in points in 2007.
“We’re going to be at every one of them,” added Greenland. “That’s our goal.”
Former OSCA champion Brown piloted the Challenger to a 6.31-second pass last year, and the car is a consistent 6:30 car with headers. It is powered by a Keith Black 526-cubic inch Hemi, supercharged with a PSI screw blower and all linked up to a Lenco three-speed. Brown has been racing since 1999, for the past several years in Top Sportsman, Outlaw, and Pro Modified racing.
Running a car of this caliber is an expensive undertaking, and Greenland mentioned the team could use some sponsorship.
“We’re looking for sponsors,” he said. “Running one of these Pro Modifieds is not a cheap venture, but we’re going to race. It becomes addictive.”
Greenland said the car should be ready and painted in the next couple of weeks. He added the team, which not only includes himself and Brown, but team members Paul Brown and Big Mike, will be ready for the first PMRA race, the Victoria Day Weekend - PMRA Challenge May 17 and 18 at Toronto Motorsports Park.
“We’ll be ready for the first race,” Greenland said. “It should be an exciting season. I know Terry is excited about getting behind the wheel.”
