Wayne Jones BB dragster is making good progress toward a return to the track. A custom crank trigger made by Wayne will enable better timing control and with two complete transmissions and a number of torque converters to work with the team are looking to be in better control of tyre shake.
Built in 1996 the BB dragster with its iron 361cu.in, PSI supercharged smallblock Chev mated to a BGA prepared Powerglide rewrote the record book.
The worlds first 5 second automatic 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.
This car has continuously held BB/D Automatic speed and ET records:
ET 6.150 since 3/97 MPH 226.93 since 11/96
