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 Derek Fuller from Prattville, AL, who owns and races a 2006 Chevy Colorado.

I use a BTE torque converter.
Why do you use BTE?
Made the switch a year ago and have had great results since then with the BTE converters.

Significantly more consistent after swapping to a BTE torque converter from another brand.

If money were no object, what would you drive?
A 1967 Camaro (it would take some real green lol)
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
I try to block out having a "routine." It’s just one more thing to distract you. Just need to focus on letting go of the button and screwing up the stripe.
