Jim Blair qualified number one with a 4.43 second pass in the eighth mile Top Gun Shoot Out at Palm Beach International Raceway on April 25-26, 2009. The ATF backed, Procharged Mustang ran well all weekend as Blair piloted it to the final round. Jim credits Jason Gatlin and the ATF crew for their hard work and diligence that helped him get The Silver Bullet into another final round. Jim also thanks Scorpion Racing Products for all of their support. As you can see in the video, Blair cut the tree a hair to close and lit the red light in the final sending the win to Matt Salminen.
Crew Chief Jason Gatlin is dialing in The Silver Bullet's new Neal Chance billet aluminum torque converter. Jason's tuning and adjustments will have The Silver Bullet flying even faster down the 1320. The ATF Team is looking forward to their next challenge: The NMCA race at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY on May 1-3. Heading into Blowing Green, Jim Blair is #1 in the NMCA Super Street 10.5 class.
