Placentia, CA – Oct 25, 2013 –McLeod Racing is proud to announce that we will have two generations of NHRA drivers signing autographs at the McLeod SEMA Booth #22835. Both Tom “Mongoose” McEwen and Paul Lee will be available for autographs on Thursday November 7th between 11-12 a.m.

Tom “Mongoose” McEwen is a legend. The Mongoose first started drag racing in the early 50’s. His legendary match racing between himself and Don “the Snake “ Prudhomme were so wildly popular that just this past year the Snake and The Mongoose movie was released. The movie depicts one of the greatest rivalries in NHRA history.

Paul Lee starting driving when he was just 16 when he would “borrow” his mom’s Plymouth Duster to race at Atco Dragway. That passion for racing helped propel Lee up the NHRA ranks all the way to Top Fuel Funny Car. Not only is Paul an event winning NHRA Top Fuel Funny Car driver but he is also the owner of McLeod Racing.

Quick Fuel Technology Introduces Revolutionary Electronic Fuel Injection System

BOWLING GREEN, KY - Quick Fuel Technology, known for its innovative carburetors and fuel systems, is introducing QFi - a bolt-on throttle body electronic fuel injection system capable of supporting 500 HP. While the market is awash with bolt-on EFI systems, QFi is different: It combines the superior fuel atomization aspects of a carburetor with the precise fuel control of EFI. The patent pending 8-hole annular discharge sleeves inject fuel into a venturi where air speed is at its peak, and pressure is at its lowest, atomizing the fuel far better than any traditional injector nozzle can do. This results in a much more homogeneous fuel/air mixture that burns faster and more complete, producing more power and better response.
