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

Dr. Caserio has been working with Phillip…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.   

This is not just a Hellcat, but a (Demonized Hellcat) which indicates the car has received performance modifications, and now has well over 1,000 horsepower!   

James has had 0.0200 reaction times which is worthy to win most any bracket race.  This means that the car moved forward an amazing 2/100th  of a second after the green light!  Leave too early, and a red-light, which is automatically a disqualification.  

Thursday night, October 22nd 2020 at Shady Side Dragway in Boiling Springs, North Carolina:

Jim Caserio ran his fastest E.T. (elapsed time) and miles per hour, with an incredible 6.41 seconds, at 111 mph (1/8th of a mile.)
