One hot Ultra Street S-10.

“‘The Flying Pickle’, as it came to be known at last years’ Prize Fight, did all kinds of flying at this year’s edition. With the promise of some excellent track prep, Roemer and his family traveled down from Wadsworth, Illinois to take on the Ultra Street contingent. The S-10, which rides on a homebuilt 25.5 chassis, is motivated by a 440 cubic inch, 23-degree small black [sic] Chevrolet built by T&T Engines, with a Nitrous Express single bar entry plate system delivering the extra ‘oomph’ to the tune of an estimated 400-shot.”

“An ATD Powerglide moves the power back to a Ford 9-inch rear, with a ladder bar rear suspension. TRZ components and Menscer shocks all the way around help plant the power. Unfortunately, there was a little too much power on tap in the second round on Sunday when Roemer went into orbit and dragged the rear bumper while in an impressive wheelstand. But not before he made a career best run of 5.05, with tuning help coming from Jimmy Plimpton.”Michael Roemer Flying Pickle Powerplant
