Elvis in Elvis at Maple Grove

Putting Our Driver On The Track

Ken Hall is a Jet Car driver who hotly contests for the honors of being the fastest and quickest during the Pro Show at Super Chevy Shows. His nemesis is Fran Peppler, who lines up in the other lane with her "Rock and Roll Thunder," and makes life tough on Ken, who is sometimes called "Elvis," because of his blue suede racing shoes. We often refer to Project "X" as Elvis, because of the attention it gets and the "cool factor" surrounding it.

It seemed a natural to combine the two, but we weren't sure how big of a deal it would be (for a guy who usually runs 270 mph) to take Project "X" on its maiden run down the quarter-mile (well, maiden only after its latest rebuild). That is, until we suggested it. Young Ken was like a kid at Christmas. He's definitely a guy who understands what the car is, as well as its significance in history. It's great to be a part of putting a smile on a good guy's face. Of course he handled the run in great style and we're proud of the performance numbers. All the details are in our feature, displayed in an upcoming issue of Super Chevy magazine.
