After racing cars and motorcycles for more than 50 years I think I'm going to retire, this is
the last racing vehicle I own and would like to sell it to someone that will continue to push
the envelope, however if the new owner lives close by I would love to help out with the
future of the car.
With new batteries on the horizon it is just a matter of time before this car will be ready
to set new records.
This car enabled me to be only the second person ever to receive an NHRA competition
racing license driving an ELECTRIC drag vehicle. ( 9.99 seconds and quicker )
After much time and hard work from myself and my partner Ken Koch the car performed
very well the last couple of years that we raced, running many 9 second runs in the quarter,
and running the second quickest time ever in an electric vehicle at 9.44 seconds and
135 mph at a Woodburn race a couple of years ago.
One of our best accomplishments was to beat Dennis Berube in a heads up match race at
Woodburn and the ONLY other electric vehicle to do so, he's a hard guy to beat, it doesn't
happen often, but with new batteries look out!!!

Race car as listed w/o Zilla controllers.....$13,000

Car with controllers...........$20,000

Trailer as listed........$10,000

After car and trailer are gone there might be a Ford diesel crew cab dually for sale also.
