2012 resulted in two wins and a 5th place finish in NHRA Division 2 Stock Eliminator. The year’s first win was a class win in C/SA at the NHRA Jeg’s Cajun Sportsnationals. This was the first NHRA Class win for Brenda since 1999. Brenda does not normally like to show her hand during class elimina-tions, as she likes keeping our Class competitors in the dark as to how fast the car can really run. Then after hurting both 396ci C/SA engines (both with crankshaft issues), the 427ci A/SA engine was back in the car after two years of storage. Without a test ses-sion and using notes from previous runs from Atlanta in 2010, the 427 per-formed flawlessly with no drop off in performance. At the very first race with the 427, Brenda claimed her second win of the year (Atlanta NHRA Divisional) by crushing her opponents both at the starting line and at the top end.
In addition to two wins, Brenda com-peted in her first two Super Stock races at the NHRA Divisional Race in Valdosta, GA and the NHRA Jegs Cajun Sports Nationals. Thank you to Pat Clifford for allowing us this op-portunity. It was an invaluable ex-perience. What the team learned about Super Stock and running two cars will pay dividends in the future.
