Hello I'm Vince from Valencia, Ca.  My racing partner and I have spent the last year building a Ford powered AA/FA.  We built the chassis, mounted the body and have put together a big block Ford nitro racing program.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nightmare-Racing/467217523392944?ref=stream

We're just starting testing with an alcohol combo to get the chassis sorted out.  Then we'll put in the Nitro engine in the chassis.  We're entered in the 2015 March Meet in AA/FA and hope to make a good showing.

Thanks guys,

We've tested once and had some front end wobble. We're fixing that, then hopefully testing again in November.

We're entered in the 2015 March Meet in AA/FA so hopefully we can do the Ford faithful proud. We have a former Pro Nitro racer driving, "Nitro" Jim Holtz. He has about 40 years of driving experience in everything from top fuel dragsters, and big show nitro funny cars, nostalgia funny cars to NE1 altereds.

As I tell people, "The two things I don't worry about is Jim driving and Van making things work right."
