King Tut conquers Pro Mod at ADRL Memphis Drags
YADKINVILLE, NC – “King Tut” Todd Tutterow took the Precision Turbo - BigStuff3 1970 Duster to the top of the ADRL’s legal Pro Mod field, qualifying #1 with a 3.609 ET @ 204 mph on Saturday at the ADRL Memphis Drags III.
Tutterow set the record for the fastest mph for the ADRL Pro Mod class at 204 mph. Qualifying #1, this team did an amazing job this weekend setting records and taking the Precision Turbo - BigStuff3 Turbo 70 Duster to the ADRL’s Winners Circle.
Tutterow said, “I appreciate Harry Hurska, CEO of Precision Turbo, for letting us be part of Project X (1970 Turbo Charged Duster). We have been doing a lot of R &D and have made a lot of headway thanks to the BigStuff3 Team. I had the pleasure of meeting John, Leo and Joe Meaney, owners of BigStuff3. They are a great team of experts that really listen and understand the changes and advancements needed in the racing engine, as well as the power train controllers that they have developed for racers. The BigStuff3 Team is a great group of people to work with. I also need to thank Carl Rossler of Rossler Transmissions for his part in developing a transmission that works well with this combination and for his quick service.”
With no time to kill, King Tut and his crew packed quickly after the short Winners Circle celebration at the ADRL Memphis Drags III and headed back to Indianapolis, IN where Tutterow was qualified #7 in the NHRA Pro Modified field. After driving all night, Tutterow arrived in Indy at about 8:30 am with no sleep and no time to spare, as the team got busy for the first round which was scheduled for 10:00 am. Tutterow took on #10 qualifier Scott Ray; with Tutterow’s 6.01 ET being enough to defeat Ray’s 6.05 ET. Tutterow lost second round to Troy Coughlin by .008 of a second, with Tutterow running his quarter mile career best ET of 5.91.
Tutterow commented, “We had a great weekend, won the ADRL Memphis Drags and made it back to Indy to win one round at least, not bad. I feel like I could have done better if the lack of sleep had not been a factor, but we plan on trying again next weekend at the NHRA O’Reilly Auto Parts Nationals in Charlotte, NC. I appreciate my family’s support, because without them I could not have made it back to Indy. Thanks to my wife, Denise, my kids Ty and Tia, and my crew members, Brad Schimdt and Mike Wilson.”
