Lancaster, NY… April 21, 2014 – LaFleur Racing made the decision to upgrade the engine of their 1968 Race Tech Chevy Camaro Roadster this year from a 540 cubic inch Big Block Chevy which made 887 HP to a 588 cubic inch Big Block Chevy which made 1120HP on the Dyno. The new engine is equipped with premium components including, a Quick Fuel 1050 CFM carburetor, Flat Out Racing gaskets, Moroso oil pan and wires, as well as Lucas Oil running through K&N filters. The new engine also features Brodix SR20 cylinder heads designed by Tracey Dennis at Sunset Racecraft in Lubbock, TX.
Of course, quality components are nothing without a quality engine builder to make it all come together. Larry Sexton of Sexton Racing Engines in Whitehouse, TN is the man who made it all happen. Truly committed to his work, Larry worked nights and weekends to get LaFleur on the track.
When asked, why build a new engine when your old one did well, Duane LaFleur simply said, “Because I want to go fast.” Well, he’s definitely in the right sport! Driver Duane LaFleur wants to thank his parents, the other half of LaFleur racing, Dan and Gail LaFleur, for their continued support. LaFleur Racing would not be what it is without them. Jiffy-tite wants to wish LaFleur Racing lots of luck this season!
