COMP Performance Group™ Involvement Goes Beyond Event Sponsorship

2007 Drag Week winner uses COMP Cams® valve train to power 7-second street car

The 2007 Drag Week presented by TCI® and co-sponsored by COMP Cams® was packed full of racing and on the spot repairs in the pits. Contestants had great weather and heavy competition with a total of 122 pre-registered racer in 10 classes ranging from daily drivers to all out 7-second street cars. Contestants didn’t just drag race; they repaired and long hauled their vehicles for an entire week, testing the definition of “street car”. The 1,000 mile, round trip journey and relentless back to back 1/4 mile passes took its toll on some vehicles, but in the end it was ProRides 1967 Camaro that walked away with the TCI® sponsored Gibson Guitar and title of the 2007 Drag Week champion. With an average E.T. of 7.80 for the entire week and a blistering quarter mile pass of 7.64 in a street driven vehicle also gave them the Fastest Real Street Car in America title. “We never touched the valve train the entire week. 1,000 miles and all 7-second passes! Without changing valve springs, rocker arms, etc” says car owner Denny Terzich, commenting on the durability of his COMP Cams® valve train.

Three of the COMP Performance Group™ companies: TCI®, COMP Cams® and ZEX™ offered support for racers throughout the week. ZEX™ filled contestants’ nitrous bottles for free, regardless of the nitrous kit manufacture to help save money and solve availability issues for nitrous powered racers. COMP Cams® and TCI® offered technical help as well as an inventory of parts for those on the spot repairs ranging from bent pushrods to broken rocker arm studs. The COMP Performance Group™ helped more than a handful of races complete the week by offering their services and support. One racer even purchases a ZEX™ nitrous kit and installed it in the pits just in time to make the 32 vehicle field in the Daily Driver class.
