      Huh....I remember that guy had already had a challenge with ol tony, but his ford stroker expired on the way to Tennessee. Then that guy and some fat guy went on a PR mission to talk about how fast the bottle rocket COULD be.. then he dissapeared from YouTube for a few months. Doesn't sound like he is a tony fan any longer to me

        LOL... you know more details than I do. Actually, I don't think there is any bad blood between Tony and Andy, though the money will add some smack. John and Dallas's race is about fun and friendship, the whole event.

          Casper, by the way, is one of my favorite trucks on youtube. I love the style, color, nostalgic appearance, and it runs !! Last engine that blew up was a 393 stroker motor. It was well into the 11's, and I think the new set up is meant to be faster.

            Oh I'm not sure, that andy guy seems a bit irritated. And after watching the clip you posted, tony upped it another 500, while waving around a huge wad of cash. I'm gonna predict it's the beginning on the end for Tony's channel.

              If both vehicles make a full pass, bottle rocket will be DESTROYED by that old ford.

                It's "one and done, off the trailer". Tony can spray a 250 shot and if he wins but blows up the 318, that 2500 would be more than his 318's short block. Sounds like most will run "a best of three". The guy spraying would have to survive at least 2 runs, which means "back off the bottle some". Tony doing "one and done" was pretty strategic on his behalf.

                  By the way, I have no mail to pony express in this race. Just thought it's interesting is all.

                    I don't watch Tony's channel, but last I heard "bottle rocket" was anything BUT a rocket. Bottle slug was more like it.

                      Even with a 250 shot, it wont outrun that truck. And it cant even make a full pass without breaking its 175hp 318 as it is, what's gonna happen with a 250 shot?

                            He's still a member, yes. ....although inactive now. Would you come back? I sure as hell wouldn't.

                                    Have you seen David recently in any videos, no offense but I don't think he's a sharp as he was a couple years ago. Too bad to he's one of my favorites to learn from.

                                      If I was uncle Tony for a few days id take all that running gear out of bottle rocket & put it in that very light 67 dart he's got that slant in. Put the slant in a stupid ass go cart.

                                              I remember the magazine articles of where Tony was getting into nitro racing. There’s some billet blocks, D4A heads, Mallory mag, and big nitro stack injectors laying around…. with about $50K of cash in pocket change. There was even mention in one video of a no prep nitro Belvedere. I don’t know if Uncle Tony still has it together enough to do the nitro gig, but there’s no doubt that he’s crazy enough to try.
