Austin Denny And His Nasty 6.0L bump Up To Pro Street
Austin Denny and his 6.0L Power Stroke have either been record holders or in the hunt for a record E.T. over the past several years. Now, Austin and his team have made the jump to the Pro Street category from 5.90 Index. To our knowledge, it’s one of the first (if not thee first) 6.0L Power Stroke to ever run in this elite ODSS class of diesels. After switching to a 4R100 transmission over the winter but then encountering problems right before the Wagler Spring Nationals on April 29-30, Austin went back to the tried and true 5R110 from teammate David Ferguson. Despite being down a cylinder, the Super Duty still managed a new best, 5.65-second eighth-mile blast. Stay tuned for quite a bit more from this compound turbo’d 6.0L this season.

Ford Pulls Out Of SEMA Show
For anyone that attends the SEMA Show each November out in Vegas, the look of central hall may never be the same. For 2022, Ford Motor Company has decided to not display at the automotive industry’s biggest trade show. The reasoning? A change in “corporate strategy.” Let’s just hope that Ford isn’t taking an anti-aftermarket stance going forward. Ironically, the announcement comes on the heels of reports of enhanced OEM presence at this year’s show. It remains to be seen who will move into the vacated space in central hall. In similar news, Honda has also pulled anchor at SEMA.

At present, nothing is truly being done to curb GHG emissions to improve the air we breathe. Its aforementioned Wind & Solar Tower aims to change all of that.
