We spent some time chatting with Chris Raschke at the ARP display at the 2022 PRI Show in Indianapolis learning about what it’s like working in an awesome engine shop like Duttweiler Performance, being part of the Speed Demon Streamliner team, earning a red hat on the salt, and eventually driving the Speed Demon!
Brad Bosworth is a guy who caught the land speed racing bug and took the plunge, building a 260+ MPH, 30-foot long streamliner in his garage! If you’ve recently been to Speed Week, you’ve no doubt seen the bright red Valley Fever streamliner in action. On this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast, Brad shares the story on how he built it in his home garage, the evolution from a Hayabusa engine to the current 2JZ powerplant, now twin turbocharged for 2022. We also learn about the car’s name, strategies to respectfully break speed records, and more.
If you’ve tuned into a live audio stream of an SCTA race, you’ve probably heard the coverage and insights of Seldom Seen Slim, also known as Jon Wennerberg. But did you know he’s also a motorcycle record holder? Tune in to hear the stories from the salt on the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast!
Gale Banks is no stranger to speeding across the dust of El Mirage and the Bonneville Salt Flats. He’s been pushing the limits on land speed cars since the late 1950s, campaigning at least 13 land speed cars and trucks and racking up dozens of records in the process. In this special episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast, Banks shares time and stories with Kevin Oeste about how land speed racing, and turbocharging, have changed his life.
Scott Clark has been tuning electronic fuel injection vehicles since the tools were first made available to enthusiasts. Today, he applies his experience, understanding, and tuning knowledge to some of the fastest cars in the world. He’s currently working with Team Vesco and the Turbinator, the turbine powered streamliner, one of several streamliners going after the 500 mph wheel-driven record at Bonneville this year! Scott joined Kevin Oeste to talk about that program as well as other facets of engine tuning and performance on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast!
