Team Edelbrock Racing’s TGR team was at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park last weekend for another impressive win. This is the first race that they ran into some complications but the team was able to overcome them and still make the top of the podium.
Starting off Friday’s test and tune, driver, Garrett Breistig’s first passed brought an E.T. of 9.15 on a 9.00 index. Crew cheif Gary Breistig analyized the pass thru Edelbrock’s Qwik Data Logger and was confident that the TGR team had a little more in them. The next pass they went 9.06 and followed it up with two more runs in the 00’s.
In the first qualifier weather played a factor with strong head winds and the saw the boat slow to a 10.00. In Q2 at the 1000ft mark there was an explosion that resulted in a hole in the back of the boat. Those Guys Racing stepped up to the challenge of repairing the hurt vessel and they were back on the water within 45 minutes to make the 3rd qualifier. Avoiding there first DNQ, TGR went 9.02 which put them in the 2 spot out of a 10 boat field.
Sunday turned out to be a good day as they went four laps to victory lane and once again to a first place trophy for the weekend. Congratulations to Team Edelbrock Racing’s own Those Guys Racing!

Introducing a proven new package for your 2010-14 Camaro. Last week here at Edelbrock we threw a slew of parts at one of our 2010 test Camaros.

Those Guys Racing roll into Parker Arizona as the defending 2013 Top Eliminator Champs with the intension of a repeat for 2014
Those Guys Racing are happy to report a victory for the season opener in Parker, Arizona. TGR made a few changes this off-season, with the biggest being the installation of an Edelbrock Direct Port Nitrous system. They made four test and tune passes on Friday, with the best pass being a 7.04 ET on a 7.00 index. Saturday qualifying saw Those Guys Racing making just one qualifying pass and clocking in at 7.08. The team made a decision to sit out the next 2 qualifying sessions. Crew chief Gary Breistig said, “Boys I have all the data I need, let’s save the resources”. Sunday TGR started out of the number 6 slot in a 15-boat field. First round was won on a hole shot by driver Garrett Breistig who ran a 7.15 with a little paddle job through the traps. After the pass it was off to the pits to load the data from Edlebrock’s Qwikdata 2 software and prepare for next round. Round 2 the boat ran a 7.05 for the win and it was on to the semi-finals. Garret proved to be faster of the line, once again, and it was off to the finals with 7.12. The final round was a great race with both drivers cutting almost identical lights. Garrett cut a .12 to Doug’s .13 light, but it was too much Edelbrock nitrous for the blow-injected hydro. Garrett and Those Guys Racing took the weekend win with another 7.04.
Other Edelbrock equipped boats were also on top of their games this last weekend in Parker, AZ. Kjell Adams, who competes with an Edelbrock QwikData 2, was able to come out on top of the Quick Eliminator Class, while QwikData 2 and an Edelbrock Nitrous setup saw Andy Ralls on the podium in Pro Eliminator. It was a great weekend for Edelbrock components as they were on boats that won 3 out of the 4 main races.
