Pro Mod racers swap turbos for a tinny and claim second place in DYO at Drag Challenge Weekend

JUST cane it! That was the plan for Queenslanders Stew Walsh and Dan Case, who took turns steering Stew’s 350ci small block Chev-powered HK Kingswood at Street Machine Drag Challenge Weekend.

While Stew and Dan usually play with a six-second Pro Mod Camaro, for Drag Challenge Weekend the boys entered Turbosmart Dial-Your-Own for some relaxed good times.

Pulling a tinny loaded up with their tools and camping gear, the boys ran a string of 12.3-second passes that wavered only by 0.009sec.

That was good enough to nail them second place in DYO, behind Andrew Dunnett’s clinically-awesome Gen III Hemi-powered CL Valiant ute.
