Your agent knows it’s been a tough first three events for Extreme 10.5 driver Todd Moyer.
But, after talking to him earlier this month at Maple Grove Raceway, there’s a very good chance things are about to turn around.
Moyer debuted a new Corvette this season, as part of a two-car team with Lamar Swindoll Jr. (with Swindoll driving Moyer’s old car).
But things haven’t taken off for Moyer in the new car yet, in part because it’s not quite yet a finished product.
A new engine has yet to make its debut in the car, but that wait should almost be over. Moyer told your agent that the new engine, being built by Jeff Naiser, is nearly complete and will likely make its debut at the Kansas National Guard Independence Drags V, which takes place June 17-18 at Heartland Park Topeka.
That is a great thing for Moyer, who is more than ready to make a move in Extreme 10.5.
To have it ready in time for Topeka, Naiser has been working vigorously to get it done.
But, your agent found out that’s not the only thing keeping Naiser busy.
Naiser (pictured, right), who debuted in Pro Nitrous this year, is also set to debut a new engine in Topeka, and this one should create considerably more power than the one he used the first two events.
The impressive thing is Naiser performed well with the old engine, running solid times in a new class that has been ultra-competitive all year. He advanced to the quarterfinals at Palm Beach International Raceway in April, but your agent expects he will have even bigger expectations for a car that will likely make a living in the 3.80s.
So, that’s exciting news on two fronts and your agent can’t wait to see the end result of all this work in Topeka next month.
