“Mr 106” Casey Smith is all set to compete this weekend in the Small Block Nitrous (SBNX) N/T class at the Emerald Coast Dragway.  Due to a very recent newborn it was up in the air whether or not he was going to be able to make this race but the extra week that last week’s rainout gave us afforded him the time to ensure the car got together. Casey has been in the drag racing game for 20 years, starting off at 10yrs old in a Jr Dragster, moving onto traditional bracket racing, ran the IHRA divisional series for two years before settling for quite sometime in the 5.70 Real Street class when it was popular back in the 2010 era.  His current ride is a purpose built Nitrous X competitor a once very popular small/radial tire racing class and has since transitioned into racing Small Block Nitrous N/T racing throughout the southeast.

Casey’s SBNX hot rod is powered by a 434 small block ford packed full of Crower Racing Products goodies, built by Lyle Smith Racing Engines, its sporting Trick Flow heads CNC’d by Total Engine Airflow, an Induction Solutions single nitrous fogger kit and power gets to the ground through a PTC transmission and converter.

The title “Mr 106” comes from an impressive 60′ time recorded right here at Emerald Coast Dragway. Although it’s a N/T competition, Smith – excited about the previous round’s performance the 60′ slipped out during the drivers meeting prior to running the next round and the heckling ensued, while the remaining competition in his class hoped they didn’t draw him next round. When asked if it’s ok that we mention the “Mr 106” in the article his response was “I’ve been called worse, yea thats fine, just note that we plan on surpassing that”.

Come see Casey Smith’s fire breathing Small Block Nitrous (SBNX) hot rod this weekend and many more like it fight it out for $13,000 in guaranteed payouts at the Emerald Coast Dragway. Gates open at 2pm Saturday June 23rd, 5 classes of heads up cars to begin qualifying & time shots at 5pm and eliminations at 7pm and continuing on into the evening, racing as late as we need to get to last man standing. $20 at the gate, kids 12 & under free, drivers get in free w/tech card purchase.  Leave us a message below, shoot us an email, or send us a text/call to our track phone at 8506033991 if you have any questions/comments/concerns or anything else that needs covered! -Team ECD

 

Milliken’s Cummins powered 66 Chevy II has been sitting patiently under a car cover since late last week when the June 16th attempt at this race was rained out and is itching to tear up the 28 Extreme N/T class this weekend at the Emerald Coast Dragway. The weather for this weekend is finally turning in our favor and if you’re like the rest of us, you’re pacing the halls waiting for it to be Friday already!

This car is not only reported to be the fastest diesel powered door car on the planet but is looking to climb the ranks of the fastest X275 cars regardless of fuel type.  It made its debut the first time roughly 7 years ago as renowned chassis builder Mickey Tessner’s personal car, purpose built for the Leaf Spring classes held at major radial races and at one point in time held the record for being the fastest radial car on leaf springs, period.  Milliken purchased the car as a roller winter of 2016 at the PRI Trade show, 8 weeks later it made its second debut at the Lights Out race at SGMP, February of 2017, this time powered by a 6.8L iron block Cummins, weighing in at over 3700lbs and none the less, learning lots of valuable lessons on its first trip out with its diesel power plant.

Since then the car has dropped roughly 250lbs and has successfully raced numerous X275 races, NMCA Street Outlaw races, Small Tire N/T Shootout’s across the southeast and is coming into this event with it’s last passes at a 29N/T race at Lyons Raceway Park in Indiana where Milliken piloted the car to the final 3 before the skies fell out and rained the rest of the race out.

Watch this car and cars like it battle it out for $13,000 in cash payouts this weekend at the South Coast Heads Up Series stop at the Emerald Coast Dragway, June 23rd, gates open at 2PM Saturday, qualifications into the afternoon and eliminations under the lights into the evening.
