Rocky Mountain Shootout | Just another WordPress site

A number of goals accomplished at the ‘Big Go’ and Rockingham’s PDRA event

September 12th, 2014

For immediate release

September 9, 2014

(courtesy Speedzone Magazine)

A couple busy weekends for Jim Bell’s JB Power Centre Pro Mod team the last two weeks and it is just part way through the tough September/October schedule. A solid first outing for Jim at the US Nationals ended pre-maturely (literally) in round one of Elimination’s. After battling weather all weekend long Jim started off in round one of qualifying by running a 6.059 to sit # 14. After the first half of the field had made their runs Jim was sitting #2 in the field, but then all the hitters took their turns and he dropped down to #4.

Jim improved a bunch in the second session and ran a 5.964 that put him # 11 out of the 33 cars entered. The hope was to improve by another 1/2 a tenth, and end up in the top half of the field. Unfortunately the track surface was not the same as it was the day before and he spun the tires hard and got sideways forcing Jim to abort the run. The JB’s Power Centre team ended up #14 in the field, and would face the #3 qualifier Jeff Naiser in round one.

In round one, run at 9:00 am Pro Mod followed both Top Alcohol classes. Jim and crew chief Rob Nascimento had the car tuned up to run a low 5.9 or high 5.8, trying to match Naiser’s qualifying effort. Unfortunately Jim pulled the trigger too quick and going way red. Naiser streaked to a second 5.89, and advanced to round two. We had the car hopped up to run a low 5.9 or high 5.8 but unfortunately I released the button way to soon, The car moved to the center line as well so I was off the gas. While I am disappointed we went out early we were happy to make the field in what was the largest field in NHRA pro Mod history.

Rockingham – PDRA

After Indy the team put the car back to 1/8 mile trim for the Rockingham PDRA event. Lousy weather greeted us there, but by the time racing got underway on Friday the moisture had subsided. In round one of qualifying we ran a strong 3.902/204 to qualify #2. Round two saw no improvement, but in round three we got our first 3.8 pass, a 3.897/204.63 and stayed in the #2 spot. It felt great to be in the top half and right near the top of the field.

We would face Jeremy Ray in round one. He was driving a Blown Hemi. Jim got a slight .02 holeshot and came within .02 of repeating his qualifying effort, crossing the finish line with a 3.914 at our top speed so far in 1/8 mile racing 205.19 mph. In round two our opponent is Tommy D’Aprile. He won round one with a 3.92. The rains came back to the ‘Rock’ and the event was postponed until the season finale in October at Virginia. We are looking forward to continuing that race and racing in the World finals.

Jim wants to thank his team Including Crew Chief Rob Nascimento, Brandon Stroud and Barb Bell. The Pro Line crew including Steve Petty and Eric Dillard have been invaluable as well. Thanks also go out to Jerry Bickel Race Cars, Rossler Transmissions, Race Pak and Precision Turbo. Special thanks go out to Jim’s staff at JB’s Power Centre for taking the reins in Edmonton while he has been out there living his dream.
