Stanley & Weiss Racing Camaro Pro Mod World Record Review
"Bring your "A" game!"
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 11/27/2013

Those were the instructions that were relayed to me when I walked into the restaurant by the race track in Las Vegas on Wednesday morning for breakfast with the Sullivan Racing crew. Well shucks and heck and gosh and holy cow, what a way to start out what would end up being THE best weekend of racing we have ever experienced! So I asked this not to be named West Coast crew member to relay back to the not to be named crew chief that my answer was: "Don't sing it, just bring it!". And that ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls was just how our fantastic 1/4 mile racing weekend began! And it set the stage for how these Left Coasters race. Just like Us-Ins they enjoy the camaraderie and the thrill of competition as much as we do. We were welcomed with open arms and it was indeed a pleasure to race amongst these teams!
So after I was suitably berated and was put in my place by the "Big Dogs" we set about getting ready to make our mark, as small or as big as it may be on the PSCA scene. John, Scottie and Jimmy arrived with our great alcohol sponsors Krista and Eric Champ of Ridgeley Distributors around noon and we set out getting the car ready for a couple of time runs on Wednesday. We had changed the engine, transmission and rear end in the Appalachia on Steroids Camaro before loading it into the trailer for its trek across the US of A. So that meant setting the timing and checking all the little things that can get left undone in a front to rear changeover. It all went pretty well till we realized that oil was POURING out the front of the motor after the warmup! We determined that some dumba$$ had left a spacer get turned a kilter and after I was abused because I was the culprit we set about pulling the blower off, cleaning everything and putting it all back together. We decided to forego the Wednesday testing and concentrated on making sure all was well with the car.
Thursday was to have two scheduled test sessions and off we went to the lanes for the first one. When it was our turn at the track John left go of the button and after fifty feet it was all over! Just way to aggressive we were. That taught us that our ADRL tune-up was not the answer, for sure! So we calmed it down and tweaked Shannon Davis' new prototype super-duper traction management device and went back to the lanes for the evening session. We were back to attempt yet again our FIRST EVER 1/4 mile pass in this six year old car. As I said in the write-up about coming out west, the Camaro had never been under power past the 1/8th mile in all these years! BUT when John left go of the button Da Orange Ho took a set and left as if it was shot from the proverbial cannon and never faltered! Straight and true as a string it was, off and marching on a pretty good mission. John had been left with the option of running it out the back if it felt good and if he was comfortable with what was happening. If not he could click it off whenever he felt which he did about 950 feet in because he saw something blowing up on the windshield. And we were left with a showing on the boards of a 5.79 at ONLY 204 mile per hour! We didnt get the $1000 for low et but what we did get was the attention of everybody there! Especially considering the car had ran 203 miles per hour to the 1/8th mile and we were number THREE amongst the baddest of the bad behind Mike Maggio and Eric Dillard's El General world record equaling 5.706. The 5.60's were now within reach of every player on the grounds. Hmmmmmmmm, how to top these juggernauts???
The Friday of Mel Roth's Street Car Super Nationals was the opening round of qualifying for the actual race and now that the bragging rights and financial matters had been settled it was that time. We wanted to try and qualify in the top half of the field so we duplicated Thursday night's tuneup with a few little miniscule manipulations and headed to the lanes. The "hitters' were already at the head of staging wanting that First to The Sixties bragging right and we patiently awaited our turn in our attempt to make our way into the top half of field. Being the next to the last pair left us watch what had transpired before us, some of it good, some of it not so good. BUT when John cut the button loose and plugged the Camaro in second gear it was as my good friend Steve Petty often says: "on like Donkey Kong"!
The Appalachia on Steroids hot rod lit up the scoreboards with an outstanding new world record run of 5.644 at over 253 miles per hour! And THEN as Bob Frey would say "The crowd went wild." as did we!!! What was left to do was back up that run in the second session so there could be ZERO doubt that WE, the Little Team That Could as Patrick Budd had dubbed us those oh so many years ago, had indeed shocked the drag racing world. And back it up we did in the second qualifying run although we slowed down by .008 to a 5.648 at another 253 mile per hour run! And then for good measure in Saturday's 3rd round we ran ANOTHER 5.60, this a 5.668 at again over 253!! We now also had the right to lay claim to the World's quickest bracket car!!!
As Sunday dawned bright and beautiful it was time to race for real! All of the past days two days accomplishments now had to be put aside in order for us to attempt to reach the final round of the largest financially attractive race we had ever been involved in, 20,000 BIG ones! The first round saw John use up all the of the left lane in a 1363 foot speed contest which he won over the rejuvenated turbo Camaro of Rich Zehring with a 5.71. But the NRE headed hemi was not a happy player during that run and as we searched for our issue frantically we ran out of time to get the issue rectified for the second round. Knowing that there definitely did not seem to be much difference between the lanes we elected to possibly give up lane choice in the semis in an attempt to gain the time needed to fix what ailed the ignition system. We just took the green and backed out of the beams and took the car back to the pits. With the help of Shannon Davis of Davis Technologies we traced the problem to a broken degree ring. (we thought...) When we went to the lanes for the semis we felt we had the issues all sorted but were soon to realize how far from the truth that was. The car did not want to start but Scottie was sharp enough to reach down and plug the magneto into the controller! After a short burnout so as not to mess with Tommy Johanns, the construction barrel orange Camaro was off and gone at the flash of green and gave us a 5.79 winning time slip. But the car still would not run any mile per hour. We figured out that we had some kind of an issue with our ignition timing retarding so we elected to run the final with the Jegs Corvette on the magneto so as to at least be "in the game". You gotta be in it to win it! John got out on Troy but it was not near enough! The engine started mixing up cylinders about 300 feet out and John elected to click it off at about 5.2 seconds knowing of the booming mph the turbo cars ran. He felt it was better to go home with nothing broken which was the correct thought process!
Our sincere congratulations go out to the Jegs/Proline team on their well deserved win. We left Vegas with our heads held high! We had been in the final, we had set and then backed up a new WORLD record! We had proven to the whole world that it doesn't always take mega money (although that does help!!!) to succeed!
We must pass on special thanks to those that helped get us to the Street Car Super Nationals... Steel Dynamics Inc, Pittsboro, In.
Dan Myers of San Diego, California for brow beating and abusing me into making the trek across the country. And then helping out with our diesel fuel expenses.
Roger Burgess and Kevin Mutters of R2B2 Motors in Duluth, Ga for giving us a fantastic deal on our truck and trailer that allowed us to make the 2500 mile trek across the country easily.
And without all the sponsors that are bannered down the right side of the front page, none of this could or would be possible!

Last night we told you John Stanley seemed to have the 5.60 zone well in hand and he came out and proved it during this morning’s first qualifying session. An absolutely sick 5.644 at 253 MPH showed up on the board and the crowd went absolutely crazy, The first - ever 5.60 - anything in Pro Mod and we were here to witness it. Simply amazing. Congratulations to the whole Stanley and Weiss racing team on an incredible accomplishment! Follow Us On Dragzine's Same Day Coverage HERE:
Stanley & Weiss Racing - Heading To The SCSN IX In Vegas
Go West They Say!!
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 11/10/2013
So we are! WAY out west to the land of the BIG slot machine, the monstrous buffet meals and the baddest quarter mile drag race left in the land for OUTLAW door cars! In our eyes it is the last Holy Grail for cars like the Appalachia on Steroids Camaro! A no rules (sorta, more on that in a minute) QUARTER MILE race on a premium race track beckons and we answering the call!!!
Mel Roth, promoter extraordinaire of the Street Car Super Nationals made the conscious decision to create a separate open class for unlimited door cars. He made the rules really, really simple:
1 - ALL safety rules will be adhered to, no exceptions!
2 - Show up.
3 - Shut up.
4 - Race!!!
We now get the option of running our Camaro the full quarter mile and in the quest of searching for the quick ET and fast MPH that should come with it.
This car has never been down a quarter mile under power for the full 1320 feet but in a week that will be another mission accomplished for us!
Wish us luck and I promise to keep everyone posted as the week progresses.
ARDL Houston Season 2013 Is In The Books
Our 2013 ADRL Racing Season Has Come To An End
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 11/4/2013
Photos By Axle Weiss and Wes Buck
And a pretty good year we have had in this, our seventh year in the series. The ADRL held its final race at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, better known as Houston, Texas. There were two days of testing scheduled for Thursday and a half day on Friday as this was a Friday / Saturday race.
We made two test hits on Thursday and were confident we had come upon a comfortable setup for the car with the Neal Chance Racing Converter we had first installed for the Memphis race.
As we were also in the beta testing mode with Shannon Davis of Davis Technologies' new piece we decided on Friday morning late that we would take another crack at the track in order to gather even more important data. A man can never have enough data! it's knowing what to do with it that has caused us some consternation at times. Well, lots of times!!! But Mother Nature intervened yet again with rain by the bucket loads right after we got the car turned around in the lanes and back to our pit! And again that was to be the cancellation of the first and second rounds of qualifying sessions that were scheduled for Friday night.
And Saturday in the AM did not look much better in the beginning with overcast skies and a hefty chill in the air. But it was decided by the ADRL powers that there would only be two qualifiers on Saturday and then into eliminations. Our second qualifier netted us a 3.69. That was the good news; the bad news was that it placed us in the number eleven qualifying spot! This shows the improvements made in this season by all the Pro Extreme competitors. At the ADRL first race at Rockingham in March we qualified with a best ever ET at the time of a 3.69 and we were number seven!
Our first round matchup was with Terry Leggett's Mustang and even though we ran another personal best of a 3.68, which was bested by Terry's 3.64. But when the race was concluded and the points were tallied for the season all our prescribed goals for the season had been met. We qualified for every race we entered and we were never an alternate nor the number 16 qualifier! And our ninth place finish in the ADRL series points Championship was also another personal best for us, up one spot from a number 10 finish a few years ago.
And none of this would have been possible without all the support, both financial and moral from all of our friends and partners in this brutal endeavor that is Pro Extreme drag racing. Over these next few months we will take the time to give each and every one them their due deserts as they flow off this keyboard.
Thank you to one and all!!!
OH, and by the way there is a surprise coming around the corner, as a matter of fact more than ONE!
And now I shall hand this scribing exercise off to Mark, the world's best webmaster so he can make it available to go around the world!
Our New Travel Accommodations To ADRL And Beyond
Movin' On Up !!
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 10/7/2013
That is just about the bestest analogy I could come up with for improvement to our Stanley & Weiss Racing team! And I think it dovetails rather nicely into our "Beverly Hillbillies" motif amongst the ranks of the Pro Extreme elite, don't you think.
We have made the decision to retire Clifford, the Big White Dog after almost 10 years of faithful service!
We were slowly but surely running out of room in our existing trailer (Being the "Pitside Walmart" as we were dubbed in Rockingham by a prominent Texas based team does require a bit more room than the norm!") and we felt we needed to also step up our appearance a bit as well.
This upgrade to our operation was made possible only with the help of Roger Burgess (yes, THAT Roger Burgess!) through his R2B2 Motors manager Kevin Mutters. I had made several trips to R2B2 Motors in Georgia purchasing a lot of leftover, miscellaneous parts that were being sold off from the R2B2 Racing Teams.
While I was there after the ADRL Memphis race loading up all the things I had purchased, Kevin and his main person "Biscuit", as he is affectionately known, made mention that I should sell the trailer along with the tractor that was sitting in the fuel funny car shop. After taking a cursory glance in the trailer I informed them that I didn't know of anyone at the time but I would keep it in mind.
But when they told me the price it caused my mind to go into overdrive over the next month! After we emailed and chatted back and forth and a series of pictures were sent, the hook had been set! I spoke with the Weiss part of Stanley & Weiss and with John Stanley gathering everyone's input. After further deliberation I made the decision that it was indeed time for us to upgrade and set about sealing the deal.
Kevin did well for us in speaking with Roger and even with the fantastic price the combination was offered to me for they agreed to give it to us a bit cheaper STILL to help out our team with the upgrade! Many thanks go out to the entire R2B2 Motors team because without all of their assistance this upgrade would have never come to fruition!
Pro Extreme In The ADRL
Back At The Rock
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 9/24/2013
Photos By: Axle Weiss
The seventh race of the 2013 American Drag Racing League tour brought us full circle back to Steve Earwood's Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, North Carolina. We started the year at The Rock back in March and have been traveling hither and yon chasing the Holy Grail that is drag racing amongst the best the world has to offer!
Our 2013 season has been so much better for us than our lost and soon to be forgotten 2012 season. We are slowly but surely climbing back aboard the consistency merry go round of Pro Extreme in the ADRL.
We plan on grabbing a few brass rings better known as round wins before the year ends for us in Houston, Texas next month.
We had our suspicions confirmed that what we had learned in the last few years still holds true today. That is the part where you must test on a Traction Twins prepped ADRL race track in order to use the data gathered at an ADRL race. The Steel Dynamics Inc. Camaro just could not cover the first sixty feet of the race track in any type of representative fashion to allow us to dip back into that magic 3.60 zone.
John Schneider of "Dukes of Hazard" fame was in the house participating in the filming of a new movie about drag racing titled "Adrenaline The Movie". Thanks to Del Baron and his entire staff!
In order to be competitive in today's' racing environment you MUST go there and reside there throughout the entire race. The only way to survive outside that zone is for your opponent to have a bit worse luck than you! So we thought that we would give Shannon Davis' new electronic gizmo a whirl in the car for our first round matchup against good friend Tommy D'Aprile.
Tommy in his Mel Bush owned, Al Billes tuned Corvette had over a tenth of a second on our GREAT steering wheel technician John Stanley in qualifying so we had nothing to lose by trying out Shannon's new thingie for the first time live.
We covered the first seven tenths of a second off the starting line with better wheel speed than we had on our .929 sixty foot shot at MIR two weeks before Rockingham.
Dave and Diane Kline of D&D Truck Repair and Towing made the trek to Rockingham to watch us play amongst the best. They are a very integral part of the reason we can make it up and down the highways of life! They were joined in the lanes by Hagerstown expatriate and friend Mike Yeakle.
BUT at that point in time the Camaro started to spin the tires and John's starting line advantage went the way of the Incas, never to be seen or heard of again! After the car spun the Mickey Thompson tires mercilessly the car went into tire shake, the right hand chute fell out and that was, as they say: "THAT"!
After looking at and analyzing the data we think Shannon is on to something and we are just glad to be able to participate in the trials.
Watch out in Houston for some more trials of this wizbang black box full of all kinds of transistors, diodes and about two bazillion bits of logic written amongst all that stuff!
So now it is on to Houston after a journey to Atlanta, Georgia to acquire an addition the Stanley & Weiss Racing stable. More on this later... Stay tuned, it could be good in some ways and sad in others.
ADRL Battle for the Belts, Not This Year Despite A 3.66
Almost Only Counts In Horseshoes And Hand Grenades
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 8/27/2013

That is about all there is say about our racing experience in Memphis, Tennessee! We have been in contention for a spot in the Battle for the Belts race in the ADRL twice now and both times we have ended up number nine out of the top eight.
We have tried our best and left ourselves down in several spots that we should have not done.
BUT when you race against the best the world has to offer these things will happen and we are not at all ashamed of our accomplishments to date in 2013!
We ran a 3.69 in our second test hit in Memphis which spoke well for our potential we thought. The bad thing about it was the fact that a head fell off an intake valve as John was coming up to the traps! This was the second hit on our backup set of heads. We had opted to not put all new valves in them when they were redone over the winter due to budgetary constraints.
We used the best (we thought!) of the 32 from our previous heads but we picked one wrong one for sure! We swapped both heads out for a loaner set from my friend Bronte Henning of Darwin, Australia that were resting on our spare motor in the trailer. Thanks again Bronte!!!
We lost first round to Frankie Taylor and Bubba Stanton, our closest rival went on to runnerup at the Memphis event and with those results Bubba moved into the final spot in the Battle for the Belts. Congratulations to Bubba, Roger Henson and their entire team.
So now we go back to Rockingham to see if the 3.66 we ran at Royce Miller's Maryland International Raceway last Wednesday was a sign of things to come. We just do not need any more electronic anomalies, PLEASE!
Bubba Stanton vs. John Stanley ADRL Pro Extreme
It's The Little Parts..

They seem to get you every once in awhile! Whether it was that stupid bolt that was SUPPOSED to stay in Jason Scruggs' block or an intake lifter that SHOULD NOT have broken in ours... We changed the transmission ratio in the car to see if it would help or hinder us in the heat of the summer. Our first two qualifiers netted us decent but not stellar runs and we were getting on top of it we thought before the third qualifier pretty much wrecked our weekend. The NRE headed hemi was on a pretty good tear for about 1.2 seconds until it broke the roller shaft on an intake rocker! And a bit later the carnage from all the excess boost started with two burst panels!
When we got back to the pits and started checking things we found a spark plug that did not look very good. And that was because we had burned a sleeve and a piston in one hole. So it was off with the head, out with the piston and then the sleeve. And in went a new sleeve, then a new rod and piston assembly followed up by the spare head.
In the first round of eliminations we had to face Bubba Stanton, but it was not to be for us on this day! The Appalachia on Steroids Camaro did not have enough steam to run with him on this day! BUT our day will come. So now it is get things ready for Memphis and our last chance to make The Battle for the Belts shoot out. We have been in this situation once before and we expect it to go better this time.
ADRL Simply Phones Virginia Race Recap
Sorry I'm Late....
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 7/15/2013

I know, I know, sorry is not an excuse But it is the only one I have to offer at this point in time. We pride ourselves on keeping our updates on the comings and goings of our team pretty current but things are happening at such a fast pace and then we have a month off like now and I need to keep The World entertained!
The ADRL organization made its annual appearance at Virginia Motorsports Park during the tale end of a massive tropical storm coming up the east coast from Florida! Now I know some of you may find it hard to believe that an ADRL race would dare to be rained on but it happened, for sure. I thought I was in England! And it was lots and lots and lots of rain and then there was more and more rain just for good measure! We arrived with all good intentions of getting some test hits in on Friday before Saturday's first qualifying round but we just got just to watch the lots of the aforementioned rain for two days!
The Simply Phones team that sponsored the US Drags VI in Virginia had planned an open cookout in the pits for Friday evening but with the rain dampening that along with everything else we proudly offered our pit area to my long time friend Brian of Simply Phones and he and his team did not disappoint. They fed all the people in attendance with some great food grilled up by by their own personal chef on our grill! Our great sponsor, Ridgeley Distributors of Ridgeley, West Virginia provided lots of assorted adult beverages and our trailer provided the rest! And then as they say: "A great time was had by all!".
Saturday morning dawned sunny and warm and it was then up to the Traction Twins to work their magic on the race track. And work it they did! By the time the tack was dried we knew it would be a two qualifier race and then into Sunday's eliminations we would all go. I had given up on the old over thinking the processes philosophies and just went with what had worked before. And work well it did! A 3.69 at over 206 miles per hour said i had found my way back from the wilderness yet AGAIN! The 2nd session at night was not as kind and a tire smoking shutoff run was the result.
First round of eliminations on Sunday found us paired against Danny Lowry in his twin turbo Mustang. Yes it was the same turbo car I have been allowed to hang out with! Another 3.69 run at another 206 turned on our first win light in eliminations in what seemed like TWENTY SEVEN years! Sorry Danny that it had to be you, but we REALLY needed that! But in the second round up against good friend Tommy D'Aprile he shook and pedaled his way to victory while we literally went out in blaze of glory when the Appalachia on steroids Camaro lit the tires about 60 feet out and that ended that! But we left Virginia confident that changes we had made to the car were the correct ones and that we were on the right track and still scratching and clawing our way out of the wilderness!
Only sissies and losers give up and we are neither!!!
Racing With Trouble
Marcus Hilt, Swiss Pro Mod Drag Racing Team At Santa Pod
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 6/23/2013

By late May it was time to yet again fly across the Atlantic Ocean to race with my Swiss friend Marcus Hilt of Trouble Racing. Once more I would venture forth to Santa Pod Raceway situated in the land of the persistent large rain drops. And once again neither Santa Pod nor England disappointed us all.
Thursday's landing at Heathrow Airport in London was done in a light rainy mist which had become a bit more rain by the time my friend Andy had gotten us to the track. And of course this bit of rain became a lot of rain AND hail and more rain AND even more hail! So of course Thursday's scheduled test session was turned into a non event. After a great meal created in the brand new Trouble Racing's portable kitchen it was off to bed to make up for the lost sleep from the flight over. With dreams of sunny days and a dry racing weekend in my mind I snuggled down under the twelve feet of Swiss blankets provided to ward off the COLD and away to the Land of Nod I went.
I awoke Friday morning to the sound of massive rain drops on the roof of the trailer boding ill for Friday's scheduled racing. But that other fickle lady, Mother Nature teased us all morning with sunny skies and a few cars down the track only to slap us yet again with a shower. Then a few more cars and then another shower till with a loud roar of laughter she inundated the facility with rain by the bucket loads for the balance of the day and for good measure added some snow mixed in just to make it interesting. That wicked witch had no idea it was May's end and really did not care. So another good meal from the portable kitchen was devoured by one and all and an evening of fellowship was had by the mini Swiss army of people in attendance.
And then Mother Nature changed her mind yet again. She worked her good magic and gave us nothing but sunny days for the balance of the weekend. The winds were fairly stout and it was a bit chilly at times but the racing was good. We had discovered a broken ring in one cylinder after the last qualifier on Sunday along with a head gasket that was leaking. One was fixed and one had a bit of McGyver magic applied to it and after two days of qualifying it was into the eliminations rounds for the matte black Vette of Marcus Hilt.
We had a first round win when our opponent had an unfortunate mechanical failure but we also had a head gasket that needed more attention. And this time it really needed some massive McGyver TLC! But get that it did and we made the second round call with a few minutes to spare. But our weekend ended when Marcus had no chance of catching the other Swiss Vette in the opposite lane. But a good go at it he had.
Soon we shall achieve more than we are at this point in time but we are learning and growing together. And all of this from a team that only races together twice a year is quite the improvement. These gains are being noted and commented on by our fellow competitors which bodes well for the future. BUT the Hockenheim round in Germany is coming up in August and we shall see what that brings. We have high hopes for yet more achievements. The only way to progress is upwards and that is the spiral we are ascending!
To And From From Santa Pod Raceway
Travelin' with Tripp of Hammer Down Motorsports
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 6/11/2013
Those of us who travel the world chasing the holy grail of drag racing have heard it said many times: "HEY, let me know when you are going the next time, I want to go along if I can." And of course when the proverbial push comes to shove they never do. They are always to broke or too busy rearranging their sock drawer!
All of you who follow our webpage know that I have been hanging out with a TURBO CAR this year learning all about the nuances of these unpredictable animals and trying my best to add a bit of value to the Hammer Down Motorsports team. And in my dealings with them I have come to know the young man that Danny Lowry has entrusted his Mustang's maintenance to, one Denver Harrison Flowers 3rd better known to one and all as Tripp.
In the latter part of last year Tripp joined the legions of those who "want to go along". At Valdosta this year he again made it known that he was ready to go. And my answer was the same to him as it is to all: "Be at the gate and on the plane and it will happen." Then at the race in Cordova he told me emphatically that Danny had excused him of his Mustang duties so he could go along. The only issue with this was that our conversation was taking place four days before it was time to board the plane to Santa Pod Raceway in Merry Ole England! But we burned up the phone lines between Atlanta, Georgia and Appalachia and got it all coordinated so Tripp could fly with me on the same plane from Washington, DC to England for his first big airplane ride.
Upon touching down on foreign soil he was like the Energizer Bunny not missing out on one little nuance of this new experience of being amongst people that were literally from all over the world. With Tripp being the consummate young male he was all decked out in coolness personified. He had on his BRAND NEW shiny red and white Air Max sneakers. He had on his BRAND NEW gray and white Oakley sunglasses perched on his hat not only backwards BUT upside down as all the REALLY cool guys do! And then he found out how cool he really was while still in the airport when some guys tried to buy his sneakers right off his feet! But he was having no part of that exercise. He could no longer be Mr. Cool with only ordinary sneakers like us poor paeans!
But through the first two days of rain, hail and a little snow Tripp settled into being Tripp, the young drag racing aficionado. He fit right in with the Swiss team that I was there to help and they took to "Flowers", as he became affectionately known as and treated him as if he were one of their own. His nickname came from some type of an encounter with an as yet to be named "person" one night while out with the other young men. But that is a story for another time...
And then the sun came out and stayed out! So I took young Tripp by to see an English friend of mine, Graham Ellis who has traded in his trusty supercharger and injector for a couple of those pop-pop, pow-pow, hisssss-pssssssssss turbocharger thingies on his hemi! And as soon as Tripp spied all that electronic paraphernalia and the $47 million worth of fuel injectors he was instantly in his element! He was able to impart some of the vast knowledge that he has gathered working with Danny Lowry, along with the likes of Steve Petty and Eric Dillard of Proline Racing Engines. Even though what he suggested didn't seem to be the right way, Graham paid heed to this unknown young man and did as he suggested. And it paid dividends in a pretty encouraging way along with some orange duct tape installed by some Ole Guy. (That's an inside joke for Mr. Ellis!)
Our drag racing weekend finally came to a close as they all do. As we were unwinding at the hotel by Heathrow Airport I got some further insight into how well Mr. Denver Harrison Flowers Number two had raised his son. And how Tripp's "Uncle" Danny Lowry had continued grooming this young man as I listened to him very respectfully say "Yes Sir" and "No Sir" time and again to an almost ninety year old man who had come back to England to visit the places he flew out of in 1943 as a gunner on a bomber.
The world could use a lot more Denver Harrison Flowers 3rd's. They are out there, we just need to search them out and encourage them.
The Second Round Of The 2013 ADRL Racing Season
Ding, ding, ding, Rain wins in a knockout!
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 5/6/2013

The second round of the 2013 ADRL racing season was held at the wonderful South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Georgia. This track was frequented by the ADRL from the very beginning and the scene of our first foray into Go Fast Outlaw Racing with "Da Orange Ho".
After driving through a humongous hail storm in Atlanta on Thursday night I arrived to a beautiful warm sunny spring day. John, Jimmy and Scott got caught up in the airline delays created by these storms and ended up in Atlanta and not able to get into the Valdosta airport till late that night. They were offered an alternative by the not so wonderful, not so friendly onsite rental car establishments. They could rent a car at the Atlanta airport, drive two and a half hours and leave the car at the Valdosta airport for $350! And then I remembered our friend Tyler Clark of Wicked Grafixx, "home of drag racing's baddest shirts" (shameless plug inserted) was on the way down as well. And just like that all was well since Tyler was able to go by the airport and picked the guys up. After running over a tire casing on the highway and then whining and crying like a little girl over it Tyler got them to the track in time for us to test.
The test on Friday evening did not yield the results we were looking for but it along with our first qualifier assured me that I was on the correct track with the fuel system repairs. And then came the second qualifier where I created another one of those "well that didn't work" scenarios.
We had to repair a broken wheelie bar after that fiasco but we were ready to go when the bell rang. The third qualifier netted us a 3.72 at almost 207mph! I surely love these new Blackhawk series Noonan Race Engineering "NRE X1" heads (another shameless plug inserted), they make the steam out the back.
We awoke Sunday morning to a dreary looking day and as Scottie and I enjoyed our morning coffee the water began to fall from the sky! And stop it never did except for a little while that enabled us to load all the pit equipment, take the Unlimited Awning down (yet another shameless plug inserted) and put the car away.
And that as they say was that!
So on to Scott Gardner's Cordova Dragway Park it is for the Curry's Transportation sponsored ADRL race.
Wish us luck!
Is That A Turbo Pro Mod? Stanley And Weiss Racing With Danny Lowry
A Turbo Car???
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 4/25/2013

Can you say Camp and a turbo car in the same breath? Well that is exactly what I did last weekend at Montgomery Motorsports Park in Alabama, hung out with a turbo car! Although it was not just any turbo car, it was Danny Lowry's Mustang which was the quickest 1/8th mile turbo car in the world before Eric Dillard stole it away in Tulsa, OK a few weeks ago.
But it was all good since both cars have Proline power and both have been genuflected over by the infamous Steve "It's on like Donkey Cong" Petty. So on to what I was doing that far away from home with a car like that. I have become friends with the team since we all met at the ADRL race in Richmond, VA last summer. We have loaned parts back and forth and done some brainstorming on different things.
I had made a few chassis suggestions at Valdosta, GA a few weeks ago that had shown a little promise so when Danny asked me to go to Montgomery with them I was more than willing to do so.
The idea was to test on Friday and Saturday and if we qualified for the SOT race it would give us another run or so. We got rained on all day Friday but Saturday was a different story. It was 42 degrees when we got up that morning! Someone forgot to tell someone else that it is supposed to be warm in Alabama!
The sun warmed it up to t shirt weather by the time testing started right after lunch. We got one only test hit in because of all the issues the car had with the electronics that control all the things the engine does to run correctly.
This is exactly why I don't ever want a turbo deal! I was there to offer a different view on things and to do the chassis stuff.
But I was able to reach out to my friend Roger Conley from Racepak Computers at a softball game in California and he talked me through the issues with the computer that had magically appeared. You cannot ever buy that type of customer service and Racepak excels at it!
There were two rounds of qualifying scheduled so we knew we would get two more hits at the track in those sessions and them a few more in the Pro Mod rounds at the back of the field if we didn't qualify. The qualifying went okay with us in the testing mode.
We learned a lot of what NOT to do! But since there were only 12 cars there and it was a 16 car field we qualified for the eliminations rounds in number 10 with a 4.31.
This was because the car was on a pretty good run in the last qualifier until it just shut off at 3.3 into the run!
Have I told you how much I hate electronics that I know absolutely nothing about? Okay then I really, really do.
But all in all it ended up pretty well as we went to what was essentially the final round all the while trying a lot of different stuff. But in the final the little Mustang that could smoked the tires. What I have learned from that is when it happens in a turbo car there is no recovering in an eighth mile race!
So all in all no one expected us to go any rounds, nor did we expect to. But the car is starting to do as it is asked and every run got better and better. I learned a lot of things, the Lowry team learned some things and all in all it was a good weekend.
Our Team Trailer Gets A Facelift !!
What The Racing Fans See From Behind On Our Travels, New Graphics Installed
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 4/9/2013
Photos by Camp Stanley
Now that spring had finally sprung out here in the Appalachian hills it was time to get new artwork installed. This artwork was originally designed by our webmaster, the inimitable Mark of goDragRacing.org fame. This original artwork was a three dimensional see through car project that Mark had wanted to get accomplished for several years. And for those who have been reading our website for awhile you would have seen the finished product from Mark in an article in December of 2011 as a screen saver.
It was so well received by all who viewed it that we decided it would look good as a replacement for our existing goDragRacing.org cartune on the rear door of the trailer. And who else to go to and have the project tweaked and manipulated to fit an area it was not designed for, but Tim Fraker Signs! Tim and I sat and talked about what we wanted to do and how it needed to be moved hither and yon to fit the eight foot by twelve foot area it was now intended for. When we completed the mind melding of our thoughts Tim then handed the chore of making them become a reality off to Lee, his computer picture bender arounder guru person. Lee worked his magic taking things from here and moving them over there in between his real work projects that generated revenue for Tim Fraker Signs. He even went so far as to take the project home and whittle away at it.
And then of course like all projects everywhere the owner would show up out the clear blue and say "What about if we..." or "How hard would it be to...". And Lee being the consummate professional would smile and say "Sure that can be done." all the while muttering under his breath "It's a good thing I like you"! But work his magic he did and herein you all will see the finished project.
"The Installation Sequence:"
So off Clifford and I went to the Tim Fraker Signs business emporium for the installation of said graphics. The graphics installer that Tim employs has been doing things for me since he worked for Tim back in The Wild Bunch days! That is going on TWENTY FIVE years! Hippy as he is affectionately known to one and all is not a morning person and I was not who was expecting to see on this Monday morning! But we started in on the removal of things that were in the way and it was on to the ladder and beginning to ply his trade for the afore-mentioned Hippy Person.
And when the project was completed it was another Tim Fraker Signs And Graphics masterpiece via the original brain cells of goDragRacing Mark manipulated by Lee and installed by The Hipster!
Please come by and give us your thoughts after looking at the detail of this see-through masterpiece.
ADRL Rockingham, A New Best For Stanley And Weiss Racing
Another new year, another great car...
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 3/16/2013
Photos compliments of Roger Richards and Axle Weiss
So far in this 2013 new season we have been to Florida testing, and then we came back and made a few changes. Next up was a trip to take the car to Maaco of Hagerstown for John's brother Raymond to work his magic on the back of the car and then into the paint booth for the Maaco painter extraordinaire to lay down the new orange paint.
And then it was off to Rockingham, North Carolina for the first ADRL race of 2013.
Starting the racing season in early March can pose some challenges in dealing with the possibilities of bad weather arriving at any time and dumping a little or a lot of snow on us. And Mother Nature was not to disappoint us this year! The "weather guessers" started their doom and gloom forecasting on the Sunday of the week before the scheduled race.
As we watched the snow forecast get worse and worse and since our racing operation resides on the very tip top of a large hill I made the decision to leave on Tuesday afternoon to beat the snow that was to start Wednesday morning. I arrived at the track on Wednesday afternoon and although it was windy and chilly it was sunny! After speaking with John Thursday morning I got the very disheartening news that our 8 to 16 inch snowfall forecast had netted us about 2 inches and was gone from the roads at sunup! Dumb "weather guessers"!
After finding a few more glitches in two test hits on Friday we felt we were ready for our first qualifying shot of 2013. Being the second pair out in the left lane was not an issue for us as John Stanley unloaded an ADRL career best run of 3.691 at a booming 209+ mile per hour! Heck, when we got out of bed on Saturday morning we couldn't even say 209 and then, BOOM we went out and did it! It was a great morale booster for our team after going through the last two years of ups and downs and all arounds.
For the second qualifier I thought I would see if I could step up the first part of the race track and about one half of a second in I found out that it was time to resurrect an old saying from our street car racing days, namely "Well that didn't work!". But at least I now know I can't do that again!
Sunday morning's first round matchup brought us up against "King Tut" as he is known, Todd Tutterow. Even though John left a red light on the tree and the car fell off its qualifying pace we left Rockingham very happy. After qualifying number seven we now believe we have a car that can run at the front of the field with a little bit more tweaking. We also know the reason the car fell off a bit, which is a good thing! And by going back to doing things the way we have always done them we will get back into our comfort zone that we had before the wheels fell off of our wagon! But it was a great way to welcome our new sponsor, Steel Dynamics, Inc to our playground.
More to come...

Stanley And Weiss Racing Testing Camaro Pro Mod At PBIR
Florida in January
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 2/3/2013

In 2013 the Stanley & Weiss racing team set a brand new record for ourselves to start off the season on a positive note. We had planned on attending the test session at Palm Beach International Raceway and to accomplish that we needed to be sure that the Camaro would be ready. Which is the reason for the "brand new record" comment. Almost every year John and I never manage to do what we say we are going to. And that is to be ready to go BEFORE we have to leave for the first race of the year! We are generally still bolting parts on the car as it goes in the trailer and then putting the rest on at the track!
The only major changes over the winter were to attempt to lighten the car a bit more and to rework our rear wing. We had discovered at the early part of last season that the car had entirely too much down force and we had tried different things to help with the problem throughout the season. With the help of Garret from Garret Race Cars we formulated a plan to decrease the size of the table top part of the wing and to take a few degrees out of it as well. This little trick was suggested to me by Jeff of Composite Specialties in Memphis at the latter part of the season. When the project was completed I sought out my shock guru person, Eric from Penske Racing Shocks and got his suggestions as to what he thought we should do now that we had made our changes. His suggestions were put into the chassis setup and we were set to go.
The weather was supposed to be excellent the entire weekend. BUT we all know how the weather people don't always know the truth, dont't we? That being said, I arrived Friday evening at the track and parked out of the way awaiting my turn to get into the track on Saturday morning so we could setup and be ready for Sunday am first thing. I met up with Scruggs family along with Roger Henson, both of whom had graciously agreed to let us test with them. The fuel cars were have their two night testing sessions that evening and were getting ready and then the rains came! And that as they say was that!
Sunday dawned a nice sunny day and we went about getting ready for our first hit of the 2013 season. After the track was readied we went to the line and the first shot yielded us a respectable 3.7 run at 202 plus. We felt this was good for a first shot since the car was set up really soft to be sure it would go down. We made several more hits on the Sunday with the best being another 3.7 at 204 plus. We had a cylinder going in and out of service before the sixty foot on all the runs so we elected to install a new set of MSD plug wires for Monday morning. And that made a such a difference in the first part of the run that John had to pedal the car because it was spinning the tires and then, OF COURSE it blew the burst panel right as he shifted it into second gear. And that, our friends is why it is called "testing"!
We believe we have found a few of the bugs that would have bitten us at the first race in Rockingham and we are confident with the changes to the rear wing area. The car went 204 and change with no effort and did not move around. AND that was with the tall wicker bill we started out with. When we install the new composite pieces that have been manufactured by Eston at Garret Race Cars we hope to gain a bit more weight savings and a bit more speed.
More to come after Rockingham!!!
Stanley And Weiss Racing Camaro Pro Mod To Begin Testing
2013 Has Arrived!!!
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 12/6/2012

The new year has arrived and the Stanley & Weiss Racing team is ready and eager to get this new season started. As those of you who follow us realize, we have had a very on-again, off-again love-hate relationship with our Appalachia on Steroids Camaro over the last two years. It would throw us a bone, build our hopes up and then when we least expected it, it would kick us squarely in the teeth and then chuckle at our frustrations!
BUT we are over that now, forever more! It is quite amazing what a little bit of success at TWO different race tracks thousands of miles apart at year's end can do to lift the morale of an entire team. It was a great feeling to drive home from the last ADRL race at Dallas in October with thoughts on how to improve on what we had learned at the Shakedown Nationals held at Englishtown, New Jersey's bad fast race track. Nobody on the premises or out in the drag racing world was any more surprised or any more in shock at the number the car put up on Saturday night than the team! We always knew we still had "it". We just didn't know what rock "it" was hidden under! Then to go to Dallas, Texas and run a 3.70 at 207.24 was the icing on that proverbial cake! And this run was accomplished with an expert light pedal job performed by John Stanley, our driver extraordinaire. You can see the logo on the butterflies "WFO!" appear part of the way off the starting line after the car started to smoke the tires in this series that was captured by that GREAT photog person Mr. Roger Richards!
Now we are in the process of getting the Camaro ready for a test session in West Palm Beach, Florida in Mid January. We have made a few changes to the car mainly in the rear wing area trying to lesson some of the down force we have down track. We have been working all year with our friends Eric from Penske Racing Shocks and Garret of Garret Race Cars trying to eliminate some of the drag this down force creates. We have also been aggressively attacking the weight issue once again looking for any tiny bit we can save and we believe we have found a bit, but only the scales will truly tell the tale.
We should know lots more on the evening of January 20, 2013 and you all shall be among the first we shall share this information with.
To the ADRL we say: "Bring it on!", we are back and we are bringing help to our party...
Finishing Off The Pro Mod Racing Season
Part Two Of The End Of 2012
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 12/4/2012
Photos Courtesy Of Axle Weiss
As I told all of our readers in the last update we went into what was going to be our last ADRL race of 2012 in Norwalk, Ohio. We had been chasing our tails for way to long, fooling around with different transmission / torque converter combinations that showed promise until we got to an ADRL prepped race track.
So with our revamped converter in place we decided to make one hit with it and if it didn't show promise, out it would come and in would go the one we had ran earlier but with some changes inside. On the first qualifier John left the line well for about twenty feet and then the Camaro went into instant tire smoke. So what did we do? Not what we said we were going to do! Imagine that, a drag racer not sticking to the game plan! We thought that perhaps we had been a bit weak on the tuneup and that the car had tried driving over the tire. So for the second qualifier we got a bit more aggressive and the car left the line and did not smoke the tires until TEN feet out!
So we then put the other converter in for the night session and it went down the track but not fast enough to make us take notice. Our friend and previous converter lender racer, Roger Henson had offered us a converter to put in and do a "try before you buy" deal. After a bit of banter and bickering back and forth between the two old guys, one rich and one poor, and with the blessing of Roger's wheel man, his own self Bubba Stanton agreed that we could purchase the converter we were going to try. On the last shot on Saturday morning we went down the race track yet again but not quite quick enough to make the cut. We learned a lesson yet again, something that I ragged on Eric Dillard of Proline Racing fame about! I didn't put on MY Big Boy pants and wussed out on getting aggressive and we paid the price for it.
But we learned after looking at the data and the incrementals that we had a piece in the car that could be the answer to our issues. So we decided to attend the Shakedown Nationals at the famed Raceway Park facility in Englishtown, New Jersey and see if indeed it would work. And as you all know from reading our last writeup, it worked well. VERY WELL!
I put on MY Big Boy pants, tuned The Orange Ho up and sent it!
YEE-HAAA was the result...
Thanks for reading and I hope you are enjoying the war stories. There will be more to come!
Stanley And Weiss Racing Camaro Pro Mod Year Ends With Pro Mod Record
Three Down And None To Go
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 11/7/2012
Photos Courtesy Of goDragRacing.org
A lot of you must be wondering where we our website updates have been for the last month. There is a valid reason for this that has to attributed to the year that we suffered through once again! We went to the next to the last ADRL race in Norwalk, Ohio with the mental outlook that we would use it strictly as a test session! We had come to the realization that our combination was just not working with our torque converter/transmission decisions. I shall over the next short while give all of you a full recount of each of the last three races. But we thought it only fitting that all of our loyal readers know that after all the strife we have had in 2012 that ALMOST matched our 2011 season we have ended the 2012 season on a high note and are very confident that once again we have a race car in our pit area that can contend for round wins against the baddest pro mod race cars on the planet, ADRL Pro Extreme!
On what do we base that bold prediction you may ask? Well thats very easy! Can You say the words "Shakedown Nationals" or "ADRL World Finals VIII? At the Shakedown Nationals with our good friend Chris Russo alongside John Stanley became only the FIFTH driver to record a time in the 3.5 second range on our shores! Although John went through the 1/8th traps enveloped in a flash ball of flame our trusty Appalachia on Steroids Camaro produced a 3.599 1/8th mile time slip! We backed up that run on Sunday with a 3.672 1/8th mile time slip even though John felt the car nosing over and clicked it right in the traps!
After those two runs we made the conscious decision to venture forth to Ennis, Texas for the last race of the ADRL season. Even though our season to date had tested us to the ends of our financial means we knew that we had to do this to prove to ourselves that we could produce those kind of numbers on an ADRL prepped race track. Our good friends Bronte Henning and his son Jay from Darwin, Australia of all places had been with us at Englishtown, New Jersey for the above mentioned passes and offered to assist with the cost of diesel fuel if we would go. That very generous offer gave us the added financial well being to be able to put Clifford The Big WHITE dog into the wind!
And the decision to make this trip bore fruit at the end of John's first qualifying run when he was rewarded with a 3.702 at our fastest speed ever recorded, 207.24 with a slight pedal in low gear! And that run qualified us for the second quickest Pro Extreme field ever. It felt very good going to bed Friday night knowing that we would not be bumped from the show. And now we have put the Camaro on stands and are working away on changes for 2013. Those you will see as well throughout the winter months.
Thanks to all who support us and special heartfelt thanks MUST go to Scott and Jimmy, our two crew guys who give new meaning to the word team. They never gave up on our abilities and these last two races justified their optimism! Thank you Scott and Jimmy, we could not do this with out you!
And soon we will be announcing a brand new major sponsor for our team, a company who has never before been involved in drag racing and chose us to carry their brand and introduce their products to the many companies who have components in and around all of our race cars. I will give just one little hint...
Yellow Bullet Nationals - ADRL Memphis
A Tale Of Two Races
By Camp Stanley: Post Date: 9/26/2012
Photos Courtesy Of Axle Weiss and goDragRacing.org
Before attending the ADRL's race in Memphis, Tennessee we decided to do a bit of testing at the infamous "Yellow Bullet.com Nationals at Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. We had made some changes to the fuel system on the car after the ADRL race in Charlotte, North Carolina and needed to be sure all the components were working together as they should be. We had to make some changes when a few unexpected glitches reared their heads and we missed the 5PM cutoff time for testing on Friday. The powers that be made the decision that we could run at the end of qualifying on Friday night and again on Saturday night if we wished. So, needless to say we readily agreed as we needed to be sure all things worked as they should.
When the radial cars were all done their qualifying we got our chance at the new Cecil county surface at 11:55pm! After a crowd pleasing burnout John staged the car and was off and gone in a flash lighting up the scoreboards with a 3.75 run that stood as our quickest ever. This run also made believers of some other people at the track in a great car making it down that late at night and after three classes of radial cars! Thanks must go out to Monty of Yellow Bullet fame, Dave at Finishline Performance and Jim at Cecil County Dragway for allowing us some time on their race track.
So then it was off to Memphis with a lot of confidence and a bounce in our step, assured that we were once again going to do well. And as has become the norm for us, that sure was not true. Our first two qualifiers were used to try several different things in the fuel system and to see if indeed all was working as it was supposed to. The Friday night qualifier came and we went to the lanes prepared to put a good number up on our behalf, but NOOOOOOOO that wasn't to be AGAIN! As John started into his burnout the parachutes came out of their packs for no reason whatsoever! That witch, called fate and spelled with large capital "B" had struck again! When we got back to the pits we found that the electric/air solenoid safety switch had malfunctioned and left the air bleed slowly into the activation cylinder and releasing the parachutes! Just another way for us to get bit in the butt!!! The last qualifier on Saturday was a fair hit that stood up till the last few cars went down and we were once again left on the outside looking in.
But we did find out what was causing our fuel management issue and that has hopefully been cured as well. The faulty solenoid has been replaced and we are soon to be off to the last ADRL race we will attend in 2012 in Norwalk, Ohio. We have made the mental adjustment to consider it a great test session on an ADRL track in preparation for whatever it is we decide to do in 2013. I know that I keep saying this, BUT sooner or later things have to swing back our way!
