Buzzards Bay, MA – Tuning consultant Lonnie Houde with LHP Racing had one of his best weekends at the race track this past weekend as he helped get Rod Burbage, owner of Spec Rite Torque Converters, secure the biggest win of his racing career.
This was the first year Burbage had been to the Street Car Super Nationals event since changing his whole engine combination 3 years ago and he wasn’t coming to have fun, he was dead set on winning. The 2-time West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association champ strung together four (4) 6-teen passes during qualifying with the best being a 6.15 placing him 6th in the 32 car qualified ladder.
During the first round of eliminations on Sunday, Houde and Burbage set a new personal low ET for their weekend with a 6.13 round win over Garrett Richards. After the first round of all “heads up” classes it was decided to switch the entire event to 1/8th-mile due to strong wind gusts and cold temperatures which put up safety concerns for the track and event officials.
Lonnie Houde has experience of tuning screw blown engines on the 1/8th-mile after working for many ADRL Pro Extreme teams, but it would be a new game for Burbage who only has ran 1/4-mile events. Rod knew he had to be on his game on the tree and he stepped it up. In the second round he got a win over Shawn Jones with a soft 4.10.

Hagerstown, MD – We are well on the way with all of our planned updates and changes to the ADRL Pro Extreme Camaro known as “Appalachia on Steroids”. The best thing we can say about this would be the fact that we sure are glad the 2010 season is over!!! All those that follow the trials and tribulations of our team know that we have just come off of the year from Hades!
If you can think of something dumb happening believe you me, it happened to us this year! Dumb, stupid stuff with the car. Dumb, stupid stuff with poor ole Clifford, the Big Red Dog. Dumb stupid stuff with our trailer. AND don’t even ask me about tires!!! The only good thing going for us in the tire department was our beloved Mickey Thompsons on the race car. They did their job very well all year, thank you very much. But the 2010 season has been completed and through all these dilemmas we persevered. The checkbooks got real thin at the end but we made it through. We are very proud of our TENTH place ranking in the ADRL Pro Extreme class we secured at years end. To finish this high out of EIGHTY-FIVE cars in the baddest class of doorslammers on the planet says lots about our determination and perseverance in our eyes. AND we don’t even have a hemi!
