2006 Racing Season Shows SGE Back in the Record Books!

SGE got off to a late start in the 2006 racing season, due to the high volume of work in our shop. Once we hit the track, the SGE Racecar's Dodge Daytona was the #1 Qualifier at every race attended. We also set two national records in one week and finally cracked the 7-second barrier at Atco, where fellow competitors put up cash to have the SGE car torn down for cheating. NHRA Div 1 tech staff found nothing illegal.

SGE Racecars and I would like to thank everyone who helped out this year including, but not limited to: Richard and Rob Latter, Jerry Hatch, Wayne Dennison and family, Kent Depoy, Elliot Smith, Ross Lawrence, Patterson Racing Engines, Jericho Performance Engines, and of course, my family Shannon, Elizabeth, and Jacob.
