    LINGENFELTER PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING PRESENTS
    THE JOHN LINGENFELTER MEMORIAL RACE

    The John Lingenfelter Memorial Race has been scheduled for Saturday, July 17, 2010, at the Muncie Dragway in Albany, Ind.

    Presented by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering in memory of their founder John Lingenfelter, the “Racer’s Special” event will award winners in the Super Pro and Pro classes double prize money – $2,400 and $1,500 respectively. The race’s Sportsman winner will be paid $1,000.

    “John started the legend of designing and building performance engine packages and chassis tuning components over 30 years ago with Lingenfelter Performance Engineering,” said owner Ken Lingenfelter, John’s distant cousin who purchased the company in September 2008. “This memorial race is to honor the great legacy John left for ambitious engineers, racers and motor enthusiasts throughout the world. I share his same vision to continue investing in technology, research, design and testing to build the Lingenfelter tradition of reinventing great cars with precision and refined power, speed and control.”

    In addition to founding Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, John led an amazing 34-year race career, racing everything from Super Stock and Comp door cars to Econo dragsters, Pro Stock Trucks and Sport Compact. John was the first Comp driver to break the six-second quarter-mile barrier. He won 13 NHRA national event titles – nine in Comp, three in Super Stock and one in Pro Stock Truck. In early 2002, John took on a new challenge: sport compact racing. In just a few months, he won one national event and had two runner-up finishes.

    In October 2002, at the Mazda NHRA Sport Compact World Finals in Pomona, Calif., John lost control of his vehicle and sustained serious injuries in the accident. He passed away as a result of complications from subsequent surgeries on December 25, 2003, at the age of 58.

    The John Lingenfelter Memorial Race is open to all racers with no increase in entry fees. A rain date is scheduled for Sunday, July 18.

        Lingenfelter LS9 Powered 2010 Camaro SS TR6060 9.974 @ 141.64 MPH

        The Lingenfelter LS9 powered 2010 Camaro SS made its first 9 second quarter mile pass at the Muncie Dragstrip on July 18, 2010. It was a blistering 88 degrees and the humidity was around 75% once the sun came out on Sunday but all of the customers and fans still had a great time. The turn out was good with around 40 vehicles registering to run down the track and many enthusiasts just coming to watch the wide range of cars, trucks, bikes and even 4 wheelers that were participating.

        The Lingenfelter LS9 2010 Camaro SS with a manual transmission made 8 passes total with three being in the 9’s. The LS9 2010 Camaro SS made its quickest pass of the day with a 9.974 @ 141.64 mph run.





        Paul Murphy’s LPE 427 CID Supercharged 2010 Camaro SS with an automatic transmission had several really good runs in the 10s with the best two being an impressive 10.528 @ 134.36 MPH and 10.579 @ 132.45 MPH.




        Dalton Davis won the quick 8 event with his 2010 Camaro SS automatic with an LPE Magnuson supercharger package with a best time of 12.2 @114 MPH.

        One of the RPM Transmission built cars in attendance was Al Brodbeck's 427 CID supercharged 2001 Corvette with an automatic transmission. This car was consistently in the low 9's and ran a best of 9.22 @ 153 MPH.

        Lingenfelter had several vehicles on display that included the LPE 9 second 2009 C6 ZR1 Corvette, the LPE E Force supercharger equipped 2008 C6 Corvette & the LPE supercharged 2009 Challenger SRT8 Hemi 6.1 L.

        Thank you to all off the people who attended the LPE track day and if anyone else has video or pictures from the track day event they would like to share please feel free to add them to this thread.
