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 Todd Stone from Port Clinton, OH, who owns and races a 1979 Camaro.
How did you get into drag racing?
Been around all forms of racing my entire life. Grew up at local oval asphalt short tracks. And loved hotrods and built classic cars.
When and where was your first race?
I was still in high school and I was at Kil Kare Dragway. Must have been the late ‘90s.
What model/year do you race now?
Does your car have a nickname?
What's under the hood?
SBC 355. Brodix heads.
Which BTE products do you use in your vehicle?
Custom 8" converter on a Fleenor Racing Powerglide.
Why do you use BTE?
Can’t beat the quality.
Do you have any stories about how BTE helped you improve your racing?
Still finishing the car. But everyone I know that runs a similar set up says you can't beat the consistency of BTE converters.
Someone you look up to in racing?
John Force on the pro level. And Nick Hastings as a bottom bulber.
If money were no object, what would you drive?
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
Jamming out to Midnight Rider.
Thank you BTE for sharing our stories and keeping us competitive!
