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.
