Built in 1996 the Weldwell BB dragster with its iron 361cu.in, PSI supercharged smallblock Chev mated to a BGA prepared Powerglide immediately started to rewrite the record book. With consistent low 6’s it was only a matter of time before the worlds first 5 second pass was made. This happened at Willowbank on 14th Jan 1997 with an astonishing 5.967 second pass. This with a Bowtie iron small block and original aluminum case Powerglide. Normally in competition class, in 1997 at Willowbank, the team were invited to run in Top Alchohol to make up the field. Amazingly the little Chev won the meeting! The car ran another sub six, 5.99 and 227.96 mph with a cracking .911 60ft time !
