NMCA Vortech Xtreme Street Highlights - Straight Line Hustle

Check out this years NMCA Vortech Xtreme Street event and all the Chevy powered drag cars present!"I can relate to this class more than anything else," said one fan to another as the Vortech Xtreme Street category rolled into action at Route 66 Raceway (Joliet, Illinois). The category is one of the most exciting in the NMCA series thanks to the lack of wheelie bars and true 10.5-inch tires. The racing is also tight thanks to a formula of rules that lets racers get wild but not out of control like some of the Outlaw-style categories out there. The rules allow for limited nitrous-injected or centrifugal supercharged small-block or big-block combos. Chevy High Performance joined Vortech Superchargers as one of the major sponsors of Xtreme Street in 2009 and we dropped into Joliet to check on the happenings of our favorite category.inline_mediumwraptextrightThe ambassador of the class, Bob Curran, smokes the hides of his '96 Corvette Grand Sport. It boasts a 399ci small-block Chevy from famed engine shop Fast Time Motorworks. Curran runs a single Edelbrock direct-port nitrous system. Curran has chosen to run a FAST XFI fuel injection system, which he was still sorting out at the event.30700806/eventcoverage/0912chp_nmca_vortech_xtreme_street_highlights0912c hp_01_z+nmca_vortech_xtreme_street_highlights+1996 _chevrolet_corvette_grand_sport.jpgTrue
