NHRA competitors better watch out. Big Chief is taking it from the streets to the track to show everybody that he’s the fastest around with the Crowmod. Gateway Motorsports Park opened up their track for testing yesterday and Big Chief threw down his first 1/4 mile pass and we have the video. This took him from his normal 660ft to the full quarter and well over the 200mph mark. Chief isn’t used to the regulations and rules, but seems to be making a quick adaption to get the Crowmod into the record books.
I am not trying to be the fastest in NHRA but just having a good time at the prestigious 65th running of the us nationals!
“It was so much money and work in the 100 degree heat. NHRA legal 37psi boost, heavy as a pig and just as ugly. First 1/4 pass so many issues. We can’t even believe it went 223.6mph. Then the chutes didn’t deploy. Almost made a trip into the sand traps.” – Justin ‘Big Chief‘ Shearer
On his first pass, he managed to pop off a 6.420 @ 223.65 even with all of his issues. He isn’t happy with that number or the run at all, so we expect much more from him in upcoming races. This means that he’s only 0.15 seconds and 5mph off of Butler’s Pontiac record. This was even on a rough pass. He thinks that once they get the car dialed in, he’s going to smash that record and keep on going. A lot of people talk crap on the Street Outlaws crew, but what are they going to say when Chief and the Crowmod take the title of the world’s fastest Pontiac? He already took this title for the 1/8 mile back at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion III when he ran a 4.03 @ 185mph on drag radials. Now he’s ready for to take the overall title for both the eighth and quarter.
“We are knocking on the door of that ever elusive World’s Fastest Pontiac record. Hope to shatter it at the US Nationals in Indy.” – Justin ‘Big Chief’ Shearer
We’ll be out at the US Nationals supporting Big Chief in his new endeavor. We’re proud to be a part of the Crowmod and supporting Chief as he goes to the top. With his Butler 482ci Pontiac motor boosted by a pair of Precision Gen2 Pro Mod 88mm turbochargers to boost the car down the strip. It is absolutely no joke and we have no doubts that Big Chief will not only be a household name in the track racing scene, not only the street scene.
“The current world’s fastest Pontiac record is 6.27 @ 228mph. That was done by my engine builder Rodney Butler. Hope we can still be friends when we smash that.” – Justin ‘Big Chief’ Shearer
