Festival Pan-Americano 2013 at Salinas Speedway

March 20, 2013

After a long retirement out of the racing scene, "La Atrevida" makes a strong comeback with a new personal record. With a new owner, new mechanic, new tuner and a new FuelTech for engine management.

La "Atrevida", which means Daring, was considered the "Princess" of import drag racing and for many, it was ahead of its time. After many years of record breaking results, the "shoebox" car was retired. 

Now its return in 2013 promises great results, after only a few weeks of testing and with the full support from FuelTech EMS and its technical staff the car has run a personal best of 7.31s @ 194 mph. 

Congratulations to all involved in the team!
