We bet you didn’t even think people in Alaska raced cars, did you? Well, it turns out that they do, and even more interestingly, they build them fast up there! Jeff Starner of Eagle River, Alaska, is just one of the few racing [LSX-power] up that way, and his nitrous-fed 408 cubic-inch LS has already run as fast as 9.755 at 135.8 mph, which is just .013 seconds shy of the Alaska LSX record held by a friend of his. Besides the monster motor and Nitrous Outlet plate kit, Jeff relies on a TH350 transmission, 4,000-stall converter, and Moser 9-inch rear to keep him moving, a combination that has netted him 1.35-second sixty-foot times. Next up, Jeff plans on stepping up the nitrous and going even faster...we can’t wait to see what it does!
