The Silver Unit to attend Untouchable No Prep Shootout
Derek Travis, owner and driver of the Silver Unit Camaro has locked in a spot into the Untouchable No Prep Shootout presented by Trick Flow Specialties. April 20th, Derek plans to be racing against some of the best small tire no prep racers around including, Boosted GT, Jason Cantu, Boost12, John Quick, and many others under the lights at the historic Pacemakers Dragway Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio.
Derek's 86' Camaro is powered by a 706 Cubic inch Big Block Chevy, equipped with 3 stages of Inductions Solutions Nitrous. Derek tells us he has had the car for 15 years, and originally bought the car as a roller. We asked Derek about the car, and he told us, "I never thought I would have anything this fast, but it's pretty quick." Quick is an understatement, this car flat out gets with the program, and to be on small tires for this no prep race... It will be a challenge. However it is a challenge accepted by a No prep, and Street Racing Veteran, such as Derek.
If you have watched the show Street Outlaws on Discovery, you have probably seen Derek, especially on the earlier seasons. Derek is known for betting on shirt sleeves, I have a feeling he may be taking some sleeves back home with him after April 20th-21st.
Heads up racing on the rise
In 2017, thousands of Drag Racing fans took to Pacemakers Dragway park to see what the buzz was all about. "Cash Days" became a household name in Central Ohio, and gained quite a reputation of being the event to go to. If you liked to see fast cars racing old school, heads up style off of a flashlight, or instant green tree, you were there, and if you weren't there... you missed out!

Just in the nick of time
You may remember seeing a voting article about a week or so ago on this site. Out of the 13 Drivers listed in that article, Boost 12 happened to receive about 1/3 votes. Joey Rabiola contacted us as we were putting the article together, we had already decided we would do a vote to find out who the last entry should be. As I had just finished punching in car number 11's information in the voting article, I get a message from him, and he wants in the deal. The 12th car added to the article was "Boost 12", and he is coming to Pacemakers Dragway Park April 20th. Joey got in the vote with only minutes to spare, making him the 32nd and final entry into the Untouchable No Prep Shootout Sponsored by Trick Flow Specialties.
