It had been 26 years since the last time Val Morris, Steve Morris’ wife, was behind the wheel of a drag car. The shop had been working on this project car named Sugar Momma, and got it done in time for Sick Week 2024. When it came time to figure out who’d drive it, Steve and his son Kyle suggested Val get the honors. The car is powered by a TorqStorm twin-supercharged 454 big block Chevy engine that makes 1,000 wheel horsepower. Check it out in this episode of Engine of the Week!
