“BOTI races are heads-up quarter mile drag races,” said Lookofsky. “It’s similar to NHRA pro stock but instead of rear wheel drive we race front wheel drive cars with 4 cylinders.”

Lookofsky was excited to get back into his drag car and away from the stress at his DragCartel Industries shop. By the end of the first qualifying session in Oregon, Lookofsky was in the number one position again with his factory backed American Honda Civic SI.

“We hold the record for the world’s fastest naturally aspirated four-cylinder Honda. “The weekend in Oregon was about setting the bar higher,” he said. “We did that by setting new ET record currently held by ourselves by laying down a 9.19 @ 150 mph and backing it up with a 9.21.”

Lookofsky captured the win by driving his DragCartel Honda Civic SI to an elapse time of 9.23 @ 146.70 against his opponent.

Lookofsky’s Honda is high tech in the sport compact world. “Our K-series Honda power plant was machined at ERL Performance inc. with the final assembly in house at the Cartel,” he said. “The racecar is the first full tube chassis car in its class built by Red Zone Fabrication. The Civic Platform is based on a carbon fiber body. It’s amazing, fans at NHRA sport compact events voted it best looking car three years in a row.”

Loofofsky uses K&N oil filter, product number HP-3002 on his Honda Civic SI. "K&N is amazing," he said. "We've never had a failure with K&N. K&N oil filters work great and look good on the car. In our sport compact world a car has too look good too."

His next Battle of the Imports event will be at Fontana, California on November 22.
