Thanks for the info Salina, very informative.

I've heard the Durham late model engines are pretty strong.  Any idea what kind of HP they have?

They are 900+ most likely closer to 950 in qualifying trim. Most are 430 cubic inch.

Business has been good. It's obviously our busiest time of year, and we have been working hard to make sure everyone is ready for the begining of the season. We will keep working diligently and hopefully grow the buisness back to the standing it once had.

Not all Ford heads have splayed/canted (staggered) valves. The Splayed/canted valve design is based off of the Cleveland

engine, which is what evolved into the D3 ford head which Roush Yates used for years in Nascar. This same essential 

design is what most late model guys use, (given some exception to the FR9 guys). The Windsor head design is an inline

valve head, and is the model for the ASCS Ford head. When R/Y was building a few 410's towards the end of their sprint car

program they were using a 10 degree Edelbrock design. The issue with trying to use an off the shelf Ford inline valve head

is that all of them have been designed for an intake manifold, to fit under a hood. By contrast the 13 and 10 degree All Pro,

Brodix, and Shaut heads all have the intake runners raised and the port at a much better angle to the valve, because they

have been designed specifically for independant runner manifolds, to fit under the hood of a sprint car. Jeremy Anderson 

can correct me if I'm wrong about the 10 degree Edelbrock stuff, but I know at one time they were testing it. As for the

Block the valve layout is the same so moving the lifter location isn't an issue. With cnc's it's no big deal to change that

peramiter these days.The rumor I heard was Durham Racing Engines was working on some engines for TSR as well. They

are one of the top late model builders.



Finally , someone that knows what there talking about.

So, July 2018 has come and gone, any more updates on the ford power? I tend to think this is one of those deals where its easier to just push it off into the future, until people give up on it..

Is Donny Schatz running Ford engines in his late models? Or sticking with Chevy there also?

Donny struggled to pass cars on his qualifying night like I've never seen before, so I'm thinking there must've been a Ford in there on Wednesday.   It looked like a Chevy to me, but maybe it was a Ford...   Speaking of that, why doesn't Ford just buy Chevy engines from one of the good engine builders and just put their own valve covers on it and brand it a Ford?   You see that with lots of other things.

It was not a Ford motor, per Tony they r still working on it, big Donny fan and I hate Ford's so I hope they do not get it figured out, but when and  if they do it better perform like the shavers they have used forever if it does not you will see shavers powered Chevy back under the hood

Why does it matter ? Chevy, Ford, Mopar. If this new engine turns out to be the almighty greatest thing ever. I really hope that WRG doesn't approve it. Do any of you understand what that will do to the cost of racing ? Are these motors not expensive enough already??  You would have every outlaw team out there having to reload there motor program. I saY the racing is fine right where it's at.

I mean...The only reason I watch sprint car racing is because I’m choosing a new motor package for my everyday driver.

im waiting to see how this ford runs before I decide...i hope they figure it out soon. #Frustrated

I heard Tony say he personally had a lot of money into the Ford research. So as I was wondering why he would do that I figure he wants collect a few pennies on every sale hereafter. Makes sense. Its a business investment for Tony. With that said he is likely smart enough to realize he will have to sell a lot of them to get his investment back so I really doubt he is going to market them for $70G. Considering they are new,unproven, and not likely to be significantly more advantageous than what is available now I think the price will have to be low to shift the current buying trends of enough racers to make any money.

It will be ready by July 2020 if things go perfect.   But, free for Schatz and $75,000 for everyone else.  Yeah, that will help sprint car racing increase car counts.  Just go to a spec engine with 700 HP and cost $15 to $20,000.  Have French Grimes build it.


Europe died during Hitler's deathcamps. If not 
for WWII, Jewish people in Europe would number 30 
million-all making important contributions. Instead 
Europe has 30 million people of another persuasion 
trying to destroy Europe.

Yeah, I meant that tongue in cheek...  I know it wasn't a Ford motor.

I like that idea. Would cost less than most 305's. Car counts would be much better. Something needs to be done. Wake up promoters.
