Last weekend the Reed team were at a cold and windy Sydney Dragway for the X-Champs. Looking to move forward from the progress made at Willowbank over the Easter long weekend, where the team won 1 of the 2 B finals on Friday & Saturday nights showdown, finishing off with a strong 5.59 e.t.

Staging

The X-Champs began with a drizzle and delayed the progress for qualifying. Top Alcohol managed 2 of the 3 sessions allocated between rain. Q1 Reed failed to put a competitive time down after breaking the blower belt. 2nd time out they knew with grey skies setting in this might be their last chance to qualify into the 8 car field for race day.
With 11 Competitors entered for Top Alcohol, Steve put himself in 6th position with a not so pretty 5.81 e.t pedal drive, but still good enough to come back fighting for race day.

Price versus Reed was eliminations Rd1 & Steve took the win with a 5.95e.t. Then doing what they set out to do, Steve drove the funny car to a 5.53 e.t 257mph win over Newby in Round 2, setting a new PB for the team.
Not much could better the previous run, but a finals win over Ham with a 5.56e.t @ 256 mph was enough to end the meeting with a gold Christmas tree and a PB.

This is a massive achievement from Steve and the entire team at Reed Racing. This is the only Top Alcohol car to run an off the shelf oil that you can pick up at your local auto store.

The engine uses Nulon Street and Track 25W60 and our long term engine treatment for Lubrication as well as our L90 Assembly lube to build these amazing motors. Impressive for a 3500hp Motor
