The consistency and performance I get from BTE is amazing.
A drag racer you look up to?
My parents, they don't race but they have always been there for support.

If money were no object, I would have a late 90s body style Cutlass to run Top Sportsman or 4.70 class and a TNT dragster to bracket race.
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
I don't really have a ritual, but I try to keep the same routine as far as maintenance and race preparation.
