Phillip Ivester Drag Racing

My brother, Phillip has had excellent success in drag racing, winning “an amazing” 164 events.  He’s also built many race engines and race cars over the years.    Roger Ivester

Practice Run 


Dr. Caserio has been working with Phillip in how to properly stage at the starting line and other drag racing tips.  He made some fabulous runs, Thursday night at Shady Side Drag strip, near Boiling Springs, NC.  

His times are constantly in the mid-6.00’s and with speeds of 108-110 mph, in 1/8 of a mile.  

This is not just a Demon Hellcat, but a (Demonized Demon) which indicates the car has received performance modifications, and now has well over 900 horsepower.  

James had a 0.0200 reaction time during one run last night which is excellent, and worthy to win most any bracket race.  This means that the car moved forward an amazing 2/10 of a second after the green light!   Leave too early, and a red-light, which is automatically a disqualification.     

Phillip and Bruce Bickerton (another seasoned drag racer) are working to assist Dr. Caserio to become a champion driver!
