The Nova made it out to Memphis for some Friday test 'n' tune runs, and it ran in the high 11s on the engine alone. For Saturday's True Street competition, we decided to let the big mill eat, and ran it "on the jug." Out of three timed runs, the Sea Foam monster got down to a best time of 10.39 at 125 mph-not bad for the car's first real taste of competition. The other two runs were in the low 11s after the car roasted the tires up to the 60-ft marker both times. Loflin finished in the top 10 of the competition, with a 10.89-second average. Stephen went with the 150-horse jetting for this outing, his first-ever attempt to use nitrous. Guess what? He's hooked.
