Great!!  Do you know the ET?  Sounds like going through 3 gears-  ? Did I miss one?

Hi Chris
Thanks for sharing. Was that taken at Beaver Springs? I saw Don make several passes there. Always loved the wheelstands! He also cuts a good light! IIRC he was running mid 10's?? Possibly lower?

Don only has 3 gears.  It is an automatic.   Lance Line, brother of Pro Stock driver Jason Line does his motor for him.  Lance owns a Dyno in Wright MN.  Thanks

Thanks for posting that Chris. I was looking for that video just recently when I had some car friends over but could not find it.

sunndwn is correct about Line Performance power. Lance does not just own a Dyno. He builds lots of stock / super stock engines including that of Bill Feist's CobraJet Mustang which has won the Brainerd Nationals twice as well as his brother Ben's CobraJet Mustang which won the Brainerd race last summer with Bill Feist as runner up. I have known the Line family for 30 years and even wound up putting the stickers on Jason Line's Buick stocker  the year he won the Brainerd event.

To me it is important to trust my engine builder and Lance has proven to not only be trustworthy but a good friend as well.
