Car of the Week: Adam Potter's 1972 Chevy Nova

Welcome to the BTE Racing Car of the Week series, where we feature our customers and fans, and the cars (and trucks) they love to race. Today, we're featuring Adam Potter and his 1972 Chevy Nova.
 
How did you get into drag racing?
A close friend and co-worker convinced me to take my quad out and give it a go. 
 
When and where was your first race?
2007 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
 
What model/year do you race now?
'72 Nova
 
Does your car have a nickname?
Nuisance 
 
What's under the hood?
406 sbc
 
Which BTE products do you use in your vehicle?
 
Why do you use BTE?
Reliability, cost and workmanship
 
Someone you look up to in racing?
That's a tough one, because there are so many talented drivers in our sport, like Seipel, Bogacki, and Lamb. But it would be the
man that got me into this sport, Keith Winters, who is always willing to coach and give a hand on and off the track.
 
If money were no object, what would you drive?
50 Merc, slow and low.
 
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
On the way to the track I blast Drop Kick Murphy's or Big B, and once in the car I look at a funny picture on the dash to clear my head before I stage.
