Butler Performance Delivers With Edelbrock

Congrats to Butler Performance for their stellar runs at last weekends Pontiac Event at Norwalk in Ohio.  We love to hear how well our products perform on our customers/enthusiast built cars.

Here are a few words from Butler Performance…

1964 Pontiac Tempest

1963 Pontiac Tempest

Just wanted to give you an update about last weekends Pontiac event at Norwalk, Ohio.

Rodney brought out his twin turbo 1963 Tempest Outlaw Promod car for it’s first 1/4 mile runs. His first full 1/4 mile pass ever was 6.42 @ 222 mph. His fourth pass was 6.27 @ 228 mph! This is by far the quickest and fastest traditional Pontiac powered drag car of all time.

We have the Edelbrock 60509 heads on this car – not bad for a Performer RPM head! ( 2720 lb. race weight ) This was in the final round of the Butler Performance sponsored heads up race at this event, which Rodney won by beating one of our engine customers, John Welter-he ran a 6.92 and also runs our CNC wide-port Edelbrock heads. (we believe this was the first ever 6 second side by side competition run by traditional Pontiac powered cars). There are usually 1000+ race and show cars combined at this event and over 10,000 spectators, so a great place for us to run well. On another note, we had GREAT response at our booth for both the Victor high port head and the new D-Port Performer head (thanks to Rick R. and crew for getting it to the show on Saturday). Hope to have both castings here soon.
