Hi everybody. My name is Robert Butler. I am a retired teacher and I've built a drag car. I've spent 4 months doing test and tune at local tracks and I'm ready to do some 1/8 and 1/4 mile racing.
The car is a 1970 Duster with a gen III hemi built by Tony Bischoff. It's high compression and stroked to the max.
The car does consistent 6.5 in the 1/8 and 10.0 in the 1/4. This is a footbrake car.
I run 1/8 mile at Little River Dragway near Temple Tx and 1/4 mile at San Antonio Raceway near Marion Tx.

Thanks for your vote of confidence!
Lots of changes to the car since I first posted.
Motor plate
Electric water pump
Lexan side windows
Dana 60 rear end (same 4.56 ratio gears as 8 3/4")
new switch panel inside
Relays for fuel pump, water pump, radiator fan
Just installed new valve springs
It's won a few races in the last couple of years but I would like to see the car be more consistent.
