Waters pulls out all the “Stops” for TOC race at Rockingham World Finals
Danny Waters Jr. and his Moser Engineering backed American Race Cars Top Dragster entry are both busy getting ready to face off in the first ever, history making Tournament of Champions event at the Rockingham World Finals next weekend. Waters and his trusty American dragster are better know for their success in IHRA’s 8.90 class, Quick Rod, but barely missed the break and just got bumped out during the last Division 1 event in Epping. However, the points God’s were good to the team in the Division 2 standings in Top Dragster. “We have taken the time to lift the throttle stop off of this Nesbitt Performance built 565 ci. engine, and replace it with an Edelbrock RPM performance enhancing Nitrous Kit and have the mono-strut wing now bolted in place, and this American car is ready for some Top Dragster action!” stated Waters. “I have made a couple of test laps, and we are very pleased with the results. In the old points format, I wouldn’t have had a chance of winning a Top Dragster championship, as my combination is not quite fast enough to qualify for most IHRA National Events. I can’t wait to get there and put up a fight against the toughest TD racers in the country, and try to bring the first ever TOC Top Dragster crown back to La Grange, N.C.!”
At this point in the season, Waters already has one win and one runner-up in Quick Rod, a win in Top Dragster, a pair of $5,000 bracket race wins, the KDS Winter Points Series Championship, and 3 top 5 Divisional finishes in: Stock, Quick Rod and Top Dragster respectively, and would love nothing more than to add a TOC championship to the list.
