By now most Super Chevy readers and racers know that the folks at ATI ProCharger are putting their money where their mouth is by running their Nova with and without the ProCharger, and showing an average of 4-second and 40-mph improvement in quarter-mile times. They do this at many Super Chevy Shows, and they do all the installation at their booth in Manufacturer's Midway, with people watching. Then, to top it all off, they raffle off a complete system FREE to a lucky show attendee! What you may not know is that they make themselves available at many other events for free tech help, in person.
Jim Summers from Overland Park, Kansas, is the driver of the ATI Super Chevy Project Car Nova, but he is also their Motorsports Director. As to qualifications, Jim has a passel of 'em. He has raced cars in many categories but he really loves boat racing. His most recent escapades were in Tunnel Boats: powered by 122ci V-6 motors, good for speeds over 120 mph! After that, terra firma must seem like a drive in the park, even at 170 mph. Taking that experience and Jim's expertise in the engineering and installation of ProChargers on the road means that people who equip their racers with ATI products, and who just can't get it to lay down the power potential, have Summers right in their pit, right at the track, for free. Nice way to treat the customer, we'd have to say.
