We’ve been on location at South Georgia Motorsports Park for the past week. Here’s a Lights Out 7 recap from the Fireball Race Team.
The racing community is a tight knit group. As we unloaded the Fireball, many recognized this car or thought they recognized it.
Russ Harrison, co-owner of the Fireball Racecar, purchased the Camaro last year from Joe Copson. We immediately made a number of changes to it including fresh paint, new heads and turbos. The work was done by our very own B&R Performance team.
The Fireball Racecar showed well in qualifying rounds. We were sitting in 12th place after completing a 4.12 second qualifying pass. This shot was from a test Ryan Martin, driver of the Fireball Camaro Racecar, made earlier this morning. He completed this pass in 4.08 seconds at 196 miles-per-hour!
Ryan qualified 22nd in the 32 car field for RVW in the Fireball Racecar.
In round one action, Martin used a 4.22 to take out Mark Woodruff, then defeated Josh Klugger before meeting up with Stevie Fast in round three.
Martin gave Stevie a solid race but came up short with a 4.07 second pass at 194 mph to Jackson’s 4.01 at 190 mph.
Great runs Ryan and a good showing for the car’s first event after so many new changes. We’re just getting started! That’s it for our Lights Out 7 Recap. We’re ready to make some improvements and go back next year.
