Sloan Racing Engines built the 360 Magnum crate motor, bookended by a K&N air filter and K&N oil filter
Summit Pro-Am Winner's Circle for Michael Beard and his 1980 Volare
Beard’s 1980 Plymouth Volare is powered by a Mopar 360 Magnum crate motor, tipping the scales at 3600 pounds to run in the H/CM (Crate Motor) class in stock eliminator. “We use K&N oil filters, K&N air filters and K&N valve breather covers,” said Beard. “I’m so happy to be able to get the number one qualifier position for a great sponsor like K&N Filters.”
Beard advanced to the third round of competition in the first race. He was knocked off the pole in the second event of the double-header weekend by a few thousandths of a second, but made it to the third round. Despite a near-perfect .001 reaction time, his opponent ran dead-on his dial in.
Beard finished the 2008 IHRA Drag Racing season in 6th place in the World Super Stock as well as 2nd in IHRA Division 3 Super Stock. In Stock Eliminator, Beard finished 5th in IHRA Division 1, and 24th in the world.
He plans to close out the year with a few big money bracket races in November.
