On Friday April 20th, at a little 1/8th mile track in Mount Vernon, Ohio "Patches" will be put to the test. The competition will be nothing less than the best, with Boosted GT, Jason Cantu, Boost 12, Boosted Ego, John Quick, J.P. Delisi, Derek Travis, and so many other tough competitors. Pacemakers Dragway Park, will be host to thousands of race fans who come to see the best in the business battle it out on a surface that not many have any testing or data. On that night some of the fastest, most powerful Hot-Rods, could be taken out in the first round by local heroes...
Local Heroes like Goran Stanisovski, and his crowd favorite 65 Chevy Nova that goes by the name of "Patches".
This won't be Goran's first or second time running at Pacemakers, he has made many passes down the little 1/8th mile track and that alone will give him an advantage over most. Goran has been making a name for his self lately not only at the local level, but at the National Level! Multiple appearances at Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings races including a Final Round Appearance at Orangeburg.
Before all the Street Outlaws racing, "Patches" sat in the winners circle at National Trail Raceway and was crowned "King of Columbus", a highly respected title in Ohio.
Patches is powered by a Cunningham Motorworks, Big Block Chevrolet, A fogger Nitrous system propels the Nova's flight.
We asked Goran how long he has had the car, and what it started as. He tells us, "I got the car in 2000, and built it with my friend from start to finish. I have had friends and family help the build along the way to get it where it’s at now. The Car went from having a 406 that I drove on the street all the time, to what it has become know with now, a big block built from Toby Cunningham from Cunningham Motor Works, with a little fogger set up that never needs touched."
I am 39 years old own my own mechanic shop, Buckeye Auto Service. If I am not working, I am at my kids sports events, and when I have a free weekend I get to go to race.
