Last year at the PRI Tradeshow in Indianapolis, we reported Quicksilver Products new street stock crate engine series organized to compete at five regional dirt ovals in the Tennessee area (Camden Speedway, Clarksville Speedway, Nashville Speedway, Tennessee National Raceway, and Thunderhill Raceway).
In March, we covered the Quicksilver Street Stock Performance Series debut at Clarksville Speedway. On the opening night, 25 street stocks took the field with about half of those equipped with the Quicksilver CT engines and the other half using other series approved sealed crate engines. The Quicksilver fans felt a source of pride as the top three podium positions were held by Quicksilver equipped cars.
Now that the season is hitting full stride, we decided to check in on the inaugural season to see how things were shaking out in the crate engine series.
“It’s a battle for the points lead in Tennessee. With seven races down and three to go, things are getting exciting with the Quicksilver Street Stock Performance Series,” said Quicksilver spokesman Mike Horak.
According to Horak, driver TJ Herndon leads the points race in the series with 445 points and is closely followed by Joel Landers with 437 points and Tony Cruse with 405 points.
“With three races left in the season, it’s anyone’s guess who will win in this exciting new series with over 50 drivers. All three drivers use the Quicksilver 383 CT engine using Quicksilver brand oil,” Horak added.
He also pointed out that seven of the top 10 drivers in the point standings were using the Quicksilver 383 CT engine. “This series is open to other brands of crate engines, machine shop built engines, and brands of oil. However, the high torque and reliability of the Quicksilver engines help win more races than any other alternative.”
