To enter the Vortech Modular Muscle gang, simply slap a 4.6 or 5.4-liter engine into any Ford vehicle and go racing. It's as easy as that. These days, modular performance has excelled as Saturday's qualifying showed cars running in the 9s. Reggie Burnette made his mark with a 9.52 at 139 mph, while the LaMotta Performance entry of Christina Eldert (far lane) was hot on the trail with a 9.97 ET. Eldert's rather quiet faux-SVO packs a twin-turbocharged Cobra motor and a ton of power, but Christina lost the second round to Richard Lelsz who had chopped the tree down with a .528 light.
