aftermarket. Now, for the first time ever, there is a video channel dedicated to
these enthusiasts - welcome to LSX TV. Launched in cooperation with LS1Tech.com,
LSX TV is 100% late model GM focused.

GM has done an incredible job with the LSX engine platform. The engines
feature gobs of power, outstanding durability, plus a huge selection of
performance parts to choose from. Since the LSX is one of the hottest segments
on the Internet, powerTV decided to bring LSX TV online to focus content toward

SOFTWARE COMPANY TO SPONSOR STOCK ELIMINATOR RACER

Don Higgins President Of Crew Chief Pro Drag Racing
Software, announced today that he has decided to sponsor stock eliminator
standout Tibor Kadar for the 2007 racing season. Tibor finished number two in
the NHRA World Championship Points Race in Stock Eliminator, in one of the
closest finishes in NHRA history.

ENDERS DECLINES SPONSORSHIP

In a show of loyalty to the NHRA and series sponsor POWERade, Pro Stock drag
racer Erica Enders has chosen to enter the 2007 season without the support of
Revive-USA by electing not to renew with the Dallas-based food, nutrition, and
beverage company, which sponsored her for the last four races in 2006.

Citing a potential conflict of interest with POWERade and
Coca-Cola's Full Throttle Energy Drink, Enders and her father
Gregg Enders, the general manager of the race
team, decided to pass on the three-year option that was part of Enders Racing's
initial agreement with Revive-USA.

MIKE AIELLO PASSES

On Friday, December 29,
2006, drag racing lost the ultimate fan and the staff of Torco’s
CompetitionPlus.com lost one of their dearest friends. We learned this morning
that Mike Aiello passed away at the UCLA
Medical Center
in Santa Monica,
Ca.

LUCAS AND TODD READY FOR OLYMPIC RIDE

speednewside.jpgMorgan Lucas and J.R. Todd, two of NHRA’s rising young Top Fuel stars,
have proven quite capable of handling any quarter-mile challenge
they’ve encountered on asphalt, but neither expected to be driving a
bobsled in Lake Placid, N.Y.

“I was surprised because I really didn’t know much about it,” said
Todd, who agreed to join Lucas on a two-man sled for the second annual
Geoff Bodine Bobsled Challenge at the U.S. Olympic team’s training
site, Jan. 5-6.  “Morgan called and asked if I wanted to do it.  I
don’t know much about bobsledding except it was about the only thing I
watched during the Olympics. It definitely will be interesting.”

FRUSTRATED DRAG RACING FAN SPEAKS

I am writing with the hope that you
will be able to help.  As you may know
the NHRA has announced that they will implement a “playoff” system for their
points this year.  There is a large and
growing group of fans that is strongly against such a system.  An online petition has been started at
http://www.petitiononline.com/nhra/petition.html

 

The goal is to gather enough
signatures which will then be delivered to NHRA as well as to Powerade.  We hope that this will impress upon them the
passion of the fans and our dislike of the playoff.  We hope that they will listen and reverse
this unwise decision.
