2010 proved to be an excellent year for the Legend Racing team, and customers of Legend Racing.
Sarah Brown and her Firebird took 3rd place in the IMSM Pro Dominator class, it was tough competition towards the end. With consistent light's and her LRE powerplant she was able to hang on to her 3rd place spot. The car will get some minor changes this winter, she will be ready to rock in the spring. And battle it out for the #1 position!
Alex Kucia, and the Kucia racing team took "the pickle" to the #2 spot in IMSM Pro Xtreme competition. Alex was deadly on the starting line all year, while Jim always had them running within hundreths of the 8.60 index. I have already got word that the engine will be coming out and heading back to us soon for a winter freshen up. Alex and his team can be a threat in any class they decide to run it, so lookout next season. You never know where "The Pickle", might end up
Great job Alex!
Mike Recchia, the Perennial Chicago Wise Guy champ decided to take his show on the road this year and mix it up in the very tough competition of ADRL Pro Xtreme. The class is based off of a run what ya brung type program, with the field being comprised of mostly screw blown hemi's. So Mike brought his screw blown 481X to the show, had a tough first race but he bounced back for the second one. Only missing the show when a continuous trans leak showed it's ugly face, and they found the converter to be cracked. However, Mike Recchia now owns the quickest 1/4 mile doorslammer record at 5.73 and he went an outstanding 3.73 on that pass. Congratulations Mike and the Agrow Fresh team.
And in Chicago Wise Guy action, Doug Roden and the Legend Racing team wrapped up the points championship in the final race. It was a tight battle between Doug and Scott Knopp with his gorgeous '53 Vette, but Doug and the team pulled it out. Running 6.89@215 first round, Doug had an .024 light. Unfortuanetly Knopp couldn't make the pass, and ended up missing 2nd round. The Legend Racing team worked hard all year, Doug did his job cutting consistent lights, and in the end it paid off. The best for the season was 6.73@217mph, with ton's of potential for the 2011 season we go into the off season with the #1 on our window and some big changes taking place. In 2011 you will be able to see Doug and the team take their show on the road, competing in NMCA Pro Street and defending their championship with the Chicago Wise Guys. Thank's to all who supported us in 2010, and we look forward to seeing you all at the track in 2011!
