Today it was announced that Mike Wood
Racing, Inc and Hamilton Cams have entered into an agreement where
Hamilton Cams will purchase the entire Nitrous Express Sponsored Top
Diesel drag racing operation. This car, along with driver Emily Herod,
won the NHRDA Top Diesel World Championship in 2011.
Mike Wood stated: “As some of you may know I
was recently injured in an off-road motorcycle accident that will
take months if not years to recuperate from. Zach has generously offered to help in my quest to advance the sport of diesel drag racing”.
Zach Hamilton stated: “The car will remain much the same with one major difference, the bright red car will now be powered by a 12 valve Cummins engine. This will highlight Hamilton Cam’s highly advanced, proprietary Cummins 12 valve cylinder head and camshaft technology”.
The car will retain many if not all of its current sponsors including Nitrous Express, Inc.
