North America’s Pro Mod racing scene will have to deal with a very formidable Can-Am Pro Mod racing team announced for 2015….
Confirmation has come surrounding a newly-created partnership between two highly successful and talented Pro Mod drivers ; Jim Bell and Kevin Fiscus and the formation of Bell/Fiscus Racing (BFR).
The two have joined forces to most effectively utilize their resources and put forth a tremendous racing effort for the 2015 season. Bell, owner of Canadian auto parts superstore operation JB’s Power Centre and wholesale division Dix Performance North, located in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, will be the team’s primary sponsor. Bell and Fiscus are also actively pursuing additional sponsorship opportunities.
In April, 2014 during a PDRA event at Rockingham Dragway, Bell’s turbocharged Ford Mustang was involved in a very serious, high-speed crash. The car is currently being completely rebuilt by Larry Larson at Larson Race Cars, and will feature a new Mike Moran carbon fiber body. A twin turbo Pro-Line Racing Hemi motor along with a Quick Drive equipped 3-speed Lenco
transmission will be installed, as well as a state of the art EFI system from FuelTech.
The Mustang should be ready to make some test hits in March once the repairs and upgrades are finished, at which point Fiscus will take over as the sole driver of the car. The team is aiming to re-debut the car at the second NHRA race of the season at Houston, Texas, followed by the PDRA race in Shreveport, Louisiana. In the interim, Fiscus will continue to field his FKR
’12 Mustang with a new JB’s Power Centre livery, while Bell will continue to drive his turbocharged PLR 481X-powered ’69 Camaro.
“I’m honored that Jim has such confidence in my driving and tuning abilities. It’s a huge opportunity for me to be involved in a program of this caliber, and will allow me to test different things that I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise,” stated Fiscus, who will also be managing tuning duties for both his and Bell’s cars as the team’s Crew Chief. Bell added that he was “very excited for the opportunity to be able to race and be a teammate with Kevin who’s been involved with fast door cars for over a decade. Kevin is not only a respected and skilled driver, but he’s proven to be a very capable tuner and crew chief.”
Plans for the Bell/Fiscus Racing (BFR) team in 2015 include running the entire 10-race NHRA Pro Mod schedule, as well as the full 10-race series of PDRA’s Pro Boost class. The team will also be competing at the Street Car Super Nationals races in St. Louis, Missouri, and Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as at the Shakedown at the Summit in Norwalk, Ohio.
The team’s operations will be based out of Pro Line Racing in Ball Ground, Georgia, where the cars will also be housed and maintained.
