During this past winter, team owner Bob Sweatland sold his trusty 1978 Challenger funny car and bought a 1971 Dodge Demon nostalgia funny car. The new car will feature an alcohol injected big block Chevy motor and powerglide combination and will be competing in various events along the East Coast and the Midwest. Bob is currently working on finalizing the team schedule for the 2011 season. Team driver Bobbie Leigh Sweatland can’t wait to to get some laps in the new car.
Dino…Hope they make the LV race. Looking at that Demon F/C kinda reminds me of the Paula Murphy “Miss STP” Duster F/C that ran at Dover.
