Clinton, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/22/2016 --Champion Racing Oil sponsors Lloyd "Hooley" Huffman's 1953 Studebaker Coupe that runs in AA Blown Fuel Comp Coupe classification and has previously been the record holder of that class at 246 mph. The record stands today at 249 mph.
"The car has been prepared this year with lots of improvements", said Karl Dedolph, Director of Racing & Performance at Champion. "It sports a DART 572cc motor with twin turbos producing around 1600 hp, weighs 6000 lbs., has a 249 gear in a 9"Ford, G-Force 4 speed, 26" and 29" Goodyear land speed tires on 4" rims, 24 feet long, 4 feet tall, with a Plymouth Daytona style rear wing. All in and on paper we should hit speeds between 270mph and 280mph if conditions are perfect."
Huffman is from Chelsea, Oklahoma and has been a long time member of the 200 MPH Club of SCTA. If all goes well in the early part of Speed Week, his team will make a few modifications and try and set another record in the AA Blown Gas Comp Coupe class. When not driving his bright orange salt flat car, "Hooley" runs his Champion Racing Oil sponsored 1951 Henry J in nostalgia drag races across the country.
