Welcome to the BTE Racing Car of the Week series, where we feature our customers and drag racing fans, and the cars (and trucks) they love to race. Today we're featuring Bill Feckley from Hardin, Kentucky, who owns and races a 1992 Ford Mustang.
How did you get into drag racing?
Just a friendly rivalry kind of thing at first. Me and some buddies had some faster cars and we started going to the track. That was about 20 years ago. Haven't stopped since.
Where was your first drag race?
Northwest Tennessee Motorsports Park
What model/year do you race now?
1992 Ford Mustang
Does your car have a nickname?
I’ve debated giving it one, it was my "side chick" then a friend said I was a "trackhead" and almost thought about using that.
What's under the hood?
6.0 ls carb setup. All motor.
Which BTE Racing products do you use in your vehicle?
Key part is BTE converter, trans parts (clutches, valve body).
Why do you use BTE?
Good friend uses them. He got me hooked.
Do you have any stories about how BTE helped you improve your racing?
Just getting my converter right from the get-go. Allowed me to focus on other things. Christopher Chance Lykens is always there to help too.
A drag racer you look up to?
Lots of friends in the sport. Lucas Walker, Phil Combs, David Bell, Danny George. Just all good people.
If money were no object, what would you drive?
Still a ‘92 mustang. Just lots faster.
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
Just try and do the same thing every time.
