King of the weekend was Todd Akes and his all-aluminum 427 big-block–powered ’69. The car has a DSE front subframe, a modified Chris Alston Chassisworks G-bar rear, and rolls on 18-inch Forgeline wheels with Toyo R888 tires (275/35 front and massive 335/30 rear). Todd was able to click off a 25.83 here and then adjusted his shocks and took the car out on the quarter-mile where he ran an 11.90 e.t. Look for a feature on this car soon.
