All change at the top

Short introduction:
Any close observer to European Pro Stock racing would have expected Jimmy Ålund to arrive at Tierp Arena with all guns blazing.  Tierp after all is where Jimmy set the current European Speed and ET records.  The Blue Camaro has run NHRA type speed and ET at this track before, and one would have expected it to do so again.  The weather in Sweden has been relatively poor for most of the 2015 summer, but the forecast for the event was hot and sunny, the track was in top condition and ticket sales were at record levels.  Everything pointed towards a quick and fast qualification perhaps even quicker and faster than the previous record, also set at Tierp, of a 7.8 bump spot.  Ten cars would compete for the eight car ladder and the quality of the field promised excellence in every session.  Continue reading

Pro Stock Car – Preview Main Event

Jimmy Ålund

Jimmy Ålund is coming to Santa Pod as the racer with both the number one plate and the most recent full race experience.  Jimmy raced the first six races of the NHRA season in a KB Racing entry.  No Wally this year for Jimmy, but the lessons he has learned in the biggest Pro-Stock fields in the world will certainly be valuable.  No news regarding additional sponsorship for Jimmy, but We understand that Exclusive Cars along with Klintberg and Way remain as title sponsors.  Jimmy’s only aim will be to keep the number one plate, and only an event win at every round will guarantee that.
