At our Maryland event, Tim Essick (a SCT Pro-Outlaw racer) got out of the groove and kissed the wall in his Twin-turbo’d New Edge. Since then, they’ve been working non-stop to get the race car ready for Joliet coming up this weekend. Currently, Tim is 1st in points in his class so you can imagine how hard him and his team are trying to repair the car to make sure he doesn’t lose that top spot. Daniel Whetstine has been working with Tim to get her up and running, and had a moment to send us some pics of the carnage along with a little bit of progress pics.
As Daniel said, “We don’t know exactly what caused the wreck other than hot and slippery track conditions, which we usually have a handle on. Tim and I take a lot of pride in not only the performance of our stuff, but also the looks and cleanliness of the car and the design, so you can imagine that usually takes longer than the quickest solution.”
Tim’s car has always had a very clean style to it from the engine bay to the nicely taken care of paint. We’re all hoping for the best that they got everything under control and will be making a full-force come back for this upcoming weekend.
“Some of the people who have come through for us are Glenn Payne with a billet motor plate, John Kolivas with a water pump, Turbo Smart, Mickey Thompson Tires, Racecraft, Strange Engineering, Holeshot Wheels, UPR Products, Bogart Wheels, Precision Turbo, Quartermax, and Schoneck Composites. We’ve worked almost everyday for the past three weeks, trying to make the Joliet race.” – Daniel Whetstine
