SMALL- BLOCK STAR

Colorful header flames pop off as Matt Hutter puts his new Hutter Performance ‘ 69 Camaro on the chip in the first round of Pro Boost eliminations at the PDRA American Doorslammer Challenge . Hutter , whose family ’ s engine shop has pumped out some record-setting small-block engines and Mountain Motor Pro Stock bullets over the years , went with a 440ci , LS-based engine to power the twin-turbocharged entry . Hutter and his father , Ron , are still working out the Bickel-built car , but it ’ s already outperforming the ex-Pro Stock Dodge Stratus he previously campaigned in PDRA and local Pro Mod competition .
