Real Street

▲ With a supercharged, small-cube combination, Tim Matherly had the unenviable task of figuring out how to equal Bruce Hemminger's performance in Real Street. With the heat, a non-intercooled, supercharged combination is just blowing hot air into an engine that wishes it was engulfing cool air. As such, Tim tried a different rear gear to get the rpm up so the blower would spin faster, as well. Tim ran a 9.45 in time trials, but as the weekend got warmer, his times got slower. What's worse is that during his semifinal-round bye run, one of Tim's front wheels was damaged on the return road, ending his weekend.
