Brandon Alsept of MD Motorsports pushed his modular-powered '98 Stang into the 10.50s and went to the semifinals. His was one of two modular cars to run deep into the 10-second zone in Pure Street competition. The other Stang belonged to Victor Downs. Both raced Four-Valve, 284ci engine combina-tions from Al Papito's Boss 330 engine shop. Pure Street rules restrict the competitors to naturally aspirated combinations and street-type camshafts.
