Default "Live From" Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals

Hello everyone, not sure how you all feel, but I'm sure happy racing season has started. I am not at the Winternationals, but I do have my right hand man Timothy Fletcher reporting in from Pomona. We will try to get as many photos as we can. Timothy will also be doing a live stream on Facebook for Stock 1st round qualifying as long as there is a good signal. I will post the link here tomorrow around 11am and also embed it here for people to watch later.

Today was sunny and temps were in the low 80's. Timothy rolled in the gates about 11am, no line getting in and parked. The credential line on the other hand was a little long.

lol
If that's the car I'm thinking of, it's been around for a while. I believe it was originally run as a 1970 340-6 T/A Challenger but now is a 1971 340 TQ combo. If someone can confirm/correct that info, I'd appreciate it. Always liked Challengers and almost built one for Stock before my Dart Sport.

It was run by Linda Myers "Pink Panther" as a 340 + 6 70 TA Challenger and later as 71 340 Challenger. That paint job is in excess of 25 years old!

The Challenger was built in Denny Sanders garage as a surprise for Linda Myers. If I remember correctly she won an all Mopar race at the old Las Vegas track. Event was called the Pacific Nationals. I remember is was very hot that weekend.

That's an interesting conversion from F/SA to SS/CX. It's a V6?

Great to have some reports and look forward to the live streaming. Perhaps Tim got some sort of contingency sheet he could share? As usual NHRA is up against it for getting something out on who is going to be posting this year. What they just put out doesn't offer much help.

Interesting: What V-6 runs F/SA?
F/SA 11.85 index vs SS/CX 10.80 index
I would like to hear the story on that.
Bet there is more to it than a decal change.
Want to take bets that there is an engine transplant?
