Bob WalkerUpper Black Eddy, PA'01 LightningBob Walker's black Lightning has appeared in MM&FF shootouts before, so it came as no surprise that the SVT special would run as well as it did. With 9-second capability on tap, Walker came close to cracking the barrier, but missed by just a bit. While nowhere in the realm of reality as Johnny Lightning, Walker's 10.14 best showed that even without the truck on kill, the heavy vehicle could hang with even the best Cobras or GT500s. Walker's two best runs of the day came right out of the gate, before traction issues resulted in worse 60-foot times and the resulting worse elapsed times. Like Lightning, though, Walker's truck was one of two that sported an oversized displacement with a killer set of heads and some thundering camshafts.
Good Info in this Article. Good to see the "Lightnings" at work again.
