Miller Defends FWD Drag Title, Buys Slurpee - 411

Sep 16, 2011

As if the grassroots, anyone-can-enter drag racing and show competition Import Faceoff brings to the country nearly every weekend of the year wasn’t awesome enough, they’ve gone and thrown something better, inviting the world’s two fastest Outlaw FWD drag racers to a grudge match and shot at the title (and over $7K cash!). Texas DC2 Integra pilot Tony “T1” Palo—the first person to drive a unibody (Outlaw) FWD to an 8-second quarter-mile, and NYC’s Chris Miller—reigning Outlaw FWD record holder, clocking e.t.’s as fast as 8.37 seconds in his Civic hatch—had never officially met in competition. Until they recently faced off amidst Import Faceoff competition at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The idea was straightforward: a good, old-fashioned heads-up drag race. But when the DC2 blew beyond repair, and the Civic thrashed some welds on its intake manifold, Chris took off on the open road (in the slicked-down race car) to borrow a welder at a local speed shop, pick up a Slurpee from 7-Eleven on the way back (in the slicked-down race car), and eventually win the bout with a bye run . . . expect a rematch soon!
