Rick Baad of Mattawan, Mich. beat out 19 others for the engine that was supplied by Engine Pro, Dart Machinery, Performance Engineering and others.
Performance Engineering built the motor and already has an appointment set up with Baad to get his new engine on the dyno and placed into his 2008 dragster.
Brooke Nellis of Muskegon, Mich. was the runner-up and walked away with a $250 gift certificate from Pro Finish Powder Coating. Andy Wroblewski of LaPorte, Ind. won a six-switch panel from R&R Wireloom.
This is the third year that Engine Pro has sponsored and coordinated the engine build and giveaway at the popular western Michigan track. Engine Pro and US 131 Motorsports Park expressed their appreciation to Clevite, JE Pistons, Hastings Racing, Ferrea, Melling Engine Parts, Oliver, PRW, and Stef’s Performance whose generous contributions helped make the program possible.
