BTR Performance Completes it's
First Year in NMCA Extreme Street Competition within Top Ten
Bill Trovato of BTR Performance,
armed with his Edelbrock Nitrous System, Small Block Oldsmobile
powered Starfire has completed his first year in NMCA's Extreme
Street Class. Bill stated at the beginning of the 2007 season:
"Running a 98 inch wheelbase car without wheelie bars isn't going to
be easy to figure out." "I'll be happy just to finish the season
without ruining the car" During the season, the Starfire qualified
in the top of the ladder all season without fail, and came out
"It took damn near most of the
racing season to get comfortable to lean on it." "2007 was a
conservative year, 2008 will be different!"

Bill Trovato in the BTR Performance
Olds Starfire made his Debut Performance over the weekend in the
NMCA Series Extreme Street Class. With a variety of new challenges
to overcome and sort out, the initial results were outstanding. Bill
Qualified #2 in a field of 23 cars with a stout 8.29 ET.
Armed with a slightly different
version of the old Small Block Oldsmobile with a new Edelbrock
Fogger system, it certainly is an oddball in the class filled with
Chevy's and Blown Fords.
During Eliminations, Bill progressed
through several rounds of eliminations and eventually lost in the
Quarter Finals with a tire spinning pass that left him a bit short..
Bob Curran also brought out his
Corvette with the a new BTR Bullet!! First time out with the new
combination, carrying an extra 100 pounds since last year, Bob
went an 8.26 ET on only a 36 Nitrous Pill!! This is just on the
beginning of the starting curve! Watch out!!
Be sure to follow the series as it
progresses through the as it issue to be an exciting season as the
the historically lethal BTR Combination is sorted out.
