 Mageau Family Racing’s “ Prospector “  ‘ 78 Corvette Stingray AA/FC is gearing up for  The IHRA Edmonton Nitro Jam June 25 – 27.

 This is the first IHRA event for the team competing for a Iron Man as a nitro car. The home town favorites have previously won Iron men in 2003, 2005, and 2006 in the nostalgia alcohol funny car class called Thunderbolts, and later PNOS . The team’s car was then a crowd favorite 57 Chevy funny car.

 “ We ran the IHRA nats a few years back on nitro against Terry Capp in his Bubble Up funny car as a demonstration deal” states “Prospector” driver Jay Mageau.  “We are thrilled the IHRA saw the promise of the class and to see it grow into a regular feature at all the Nitro Jam events really pleases us. We knew the fans would love these cars!  “

The team is coming into the event up against some big hitters, but hope the hometown advantage helps.  “ Our new “Prospector” Stingray is pretty slippery compared to what we ran in the past, we hope it hauls the mail!”  Says Mageau  “But most importantly, we want to perform well, and really put on a show for IHRA and the Edmonton crowd. “
