Rick stopped to see Fred Sanders in Ravenna, Ohio this week and was surprised to see the “Silver Bullet #2” in the shop with the long-awaited new motor in place. This is a Cummins QXK-19 engine fresh from the Jim Fink dyno and sporting a huge single turbo-charger. Sanders admitted that he has never been ready for the season this early. And the other Mack powered “Silver Bullet #1” (Mack V-8/four chargers) is also in the shop with work on that machine evident under crew chief Richard Scott’s watchful eye.
