Jimmy Ålund Santa Pod 2009. Pro Stock 6.652. www.jimmyalund.com
Jimmy and crew did it again during 1st round of qualifying for the 2009 FIA European Pro Stock Championship: The new ET record run in details: 0,0093 RT, 0,9871 60ft, 4,2785/164,00 MPH 1/8, 6,6492 1/4. Later Jimmy also captured the new speed record which now reads 207,07 MPH. Jimmy's # 1 GTO broke with a engine failure during the final run against Nixxon's Cobalt.
But the 2009 FIA European Pro Stock Champion is multiple champ and ace driver Jimmy Ålund and his JJ Performance crew of Petter Greborn (clutch), Mats Appelgren (engine) and Kalle Hrupa (rear end).
The team would like to say THANK YOU to all our great sponsors for their participation under 2009! Please use our sponsors if you need a product or service supplied by them.

Pro Stock Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
Some pictures that I took of Pro Stockers back in the '70s and '80s along with a clip from the Diamond P video "Decade Of Thrills" Note... the last photo, at 6:43, before the video clip is one that I took from the grandstands at the '83 US Nationals showing Lee Shepherd in the lead at that point. But as the video shows, Bob Glidden drove around him to take the title. Great Racin'!!
