5th PlaceRuss Nichols Jessup, MD'02 Ford LightningNot only did Russ Nichols' heavyweight hauler look good, but it moved down the track just as well. Featuring a Johnny Lightning Performance 335ci fire-breathing mod motor, Nichols' truck ran well until it mixed up a couple of cylinders on the last pass.
Nothing major was broken, however, and Nichols was able to start it up and make sure the engine ran fine. He uses JLP parts to move the 4,440-pound truck down the track. In addition to the blower moving air into the JLP heads with 19 psi of boost, Nichols put the engine on the sauce, adding an extra 150 hp.
