Kenny Lang and the NitroMoose.ca Pro Mod Corvette tuned up very nicely for next weekend's IHRA World Championship showdown at Rockingham with a solid effort during the NHRA Jegs Pro Mod Challenge event at Virginia Motorsports Park.
After aborting his first qualifying effort, Lang's Al Billes tuned machine ran extremely well and placed in the event's "final four" on Sunday.
Kenny qualified 4th for what was drag racing's all time quickest PM field (6.033 secs!!) with a career best run of 5.919 secs at 242.23 mph. He then beat fellow Canadian Raymond Commisso in round one (with a 5.984 secs run) before stopping Tim Tindle's Mustang in round two with a 5.930 secs.
Lang just missed making the final round versus opponent Scott Ray from Ohio. In a semi-final battle of similar '53 Vettes, Kenny had a slight advantage out of the gate, but his 5.941 secs at 240.94 mph was just nipped by Ray's 5.943 secs at 240.54 mph.
Between qualifying and eliminations, the NitroMoose.ca Corvette reeled off five straight 5-secs elapsed times!!!
