The latest releases from the provinces’s DSE, PBSS & Quick 32 drag racing series’……
Everitt Racing T/D Update
Now entering his fourth season of Quick 32 Sportsman Series drag racing, Mike Everitt (from Stratford) has taken to racing his Top Dragster and is hoping to better his third-place points finish of 2014.
But the Stratford Ontario driver of the Everitt Racing Team said they plan on leaving the car fundamentally as last year.
“We’re not doing a great deal with the car, he noted. Basically this year will be to get the nitrous sorted out and drive it.”
The Top Dragster is a Spitzer Enterprises car with a 632-cubic inch for power complete with Dart Big Chief oval heads courtesy of Race Flow Development. Fuel is provided by nitrous-assisted carburetion, and a Hutch’s Transmission two-speed sits behind the engine. The car is capable of mid six-second passes on the quarter-mile at speeds of 200 mph. The team placed third in points in 2014, capped off with a series win during the Labor Day meet at the Grand Bend Motorplex.
The car, owned by Sheila Everitt, is crew-chiefed by Ken Everitt, with Jeff Shiell, Dean Wilson, Frank Wilson, Bob Robinson, Caitlyn Ross and Tyler Kawalez assisting.
The team is sponsored by Morrison/Everitt Ltd. and Wilson Salvage.
The Quick 32 Sportsman Series, www.Quick32.ca now in its seventh year of operation, competes several times each season with the PBSS, www.PBSS.ca providing an exciting and colorful package of drag racing action.
More Power for Orfanidis PBSS Team
With new power in his Quality Automotive Pro Bike Suzuki, Pro Bike & Sled competitor John Orfanidis is hoping to get down the track quicker this year.
Always a strong qualifier, Orfanidis, from Toronto, ran the entire PBSS schedule in 2014 and plans to do so in 2015. Off-season, he made a 7.28-second pass and qualified sixth of 22 in the pro-open Class at the prestigious Man (Manufacturers) Cup at South Georgia Motorsports Park, and hopes to better this effort with a new engine for the Suzuki.
Sitting in a 1999 Suzuki GSX-R with a Tracs chassis, the Vance & Hines 1755-cc naturally aspirated engine is fueled by Lectron carburetors and would run in the mid-seven second range at speeds approaching 180 mph in regular PBSS competition.
Orfanidis has been in the sport since the early 1980s and has been a strong contender during his seasons with the PBSS.
Mike Henriques will continue as crew chief with the Quality Automotive team, with Jonathan Orfanidis, Peter Cifuentes, Alex Saragosa and Fedon Orfanidis as the rest of the crew.
Sponsorship is provided by Quality Automotive, Converter Man Ltd. and Diamond Trans.
