SUPER NOVA

New York ’ s Tim Barton tests the limits of the 10.5-inch slicks required in PDRA Pro Street as he makes a qualifying attempt at the Brian Olson Memorial World Finals . Powered by a big-inch nitrous engine , Barton ’ s ‘ 70 Nova qualified on the bump spot and bowed out in the first round to Bill Riddle and his 3-second , roots-blown ‘ 89 Camaro . It was Barton ’ s debut in the fledgling class , though , and hopefully he ’ ll be back in 2023 to mix it up again with the primarily boosted combinations in Pro Street .
