Hopefully you follow Car Craft and Lutz Race Cars on Facebook. If so, you've been watching the build of Jeff's new race car as it's been happening. This is the third 57 Chevy Jeff has built, and he says it's the culmination he's learned from the first two, plus knowledge gained from his Mad Max Pro Mod 1969 Camaro, which he won Hot Rod's Drag Week in last year. This new car represents a return to the "steel roof and quarter panels" notion promoted by many street car classes as well as conforming to rules imposed by Justin "Big Chief" Shearer on Street Outlaws. Yes, Jeff is building the car to compete in Season 10 of the show as well as this year's Drag Week. Here are a few teaser preview photos of the car. Jeff asked that we keep the car's color and major details a sevret until it is unveiled next week at the Tri Five Nationals at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We can tell you, though, that the car is powered by a twin-turbo 540 big block Chevy expected to make somewhere north of 3,000 hp. It's backed by a Rossler TH400 and billet 9-inch rear. Race weight is expected to be about 2,400 pounds, thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber panels throughout the car. If you're in the area, get to Beech Bend to see the car's unveiling on Friday August 11, 2017 and stay tuned to Car Craft for full details on this exciting build.
