Sondra Leslie and Dave DeMarco have thrashed and slaved for the past six months to convert Sondra’s Super Stang racer into a heads-up hauler aimed for Factory Stock. The supercharged V-6 was ditched and in its place sits a Coyote 5.0L from Ford Racing. The team then turned to an AO3 automatic transmission with a Pro Torque torque converter to back the F/S-legal powerplant. The first outing was the NMRA/NMCA combo event at Atlanta Dragway. They managed to get the car to hook and roll with a 60-foot of 1.52, a great accomplishment in the BFGoodrich drag radial category. The best time was 11.37 at 117 mph but everyone involved in the program knows there is more lurking in the technically advanced four-valve engine. Sondra took a weekend off to make a few changes and head back out. They hauled the car to New England Dragway, her new home track, and unleashed an 11.21 at 119 mph—over a tenth and a half quicker and 2 mph faster than her runs in Georgia. The good news is that the 60-foot dropped to a 1.49, a lightning quick time for a heavyweight ride rolling on BFG radials. The team is moving forward, not exactly where they want to be since the top runners are consistently in the 10.90s but the 11.21 makes them the quickest Coyote-powered Factory Stocker to date.
