At the Top in NHRA Pro-Stock

Going into the final two races of the NHRA Pro Stock season 2 out of 3 top drivers in the points standings put their trust in XS Power Batteries to power them to the Championship. With 9 wins this season XS Power has had a great season so far, and there is still some room for a few more trophies to be put on the shelf this season. Best of luck to all the teams and drivers going into the final two races of the year!

XS Power in Victory Lane at Daytona

What odds would you give an underfunded NASCAR race team with a beaten and battered race car on the high banking super speedway of f Daytona? Not very good right? Well take that same team, car and race track, but add in the heart and passion of a champion and the odds increase significantly. They actually go up all the way to Victory Lane! Kurt Busch drove the Phoenix Racing Chevy to the win Friday night in the Subway Jalapeno 250 at Daytona.

Kurt had the #1 Chevy up front all night until an accident late in the race left Kurt’s car beaten and battered. The team came into the pits 6 times to fix damages on the car and would never give up.”It’s just a matter of putting yourself in position to win,” Busch said. “Tonight, we overcame our damage. We could have folded, but these guys jumped into action and didn’t give up.”

Kurt was leading the pack to the checkered flag when everyone started making their moves to take the lead from him. Kurt showed why he is a NASCAR champion though and held everyone off for the win. “I don’t know much about anything else. You get caught up in marketing or PR and everything else that goes along with it, but you’ve got to do all the steps in this day and age. I keep saying I grew up 30 years too late, and I still haven’t grown up, even though I’m 33. But back in the 80s, that’s what this team reminds me of. It’s family. And you go hard, or you go home.”

Nick Harrison, Crew Chief on the #1 Phoenix Racing Chevy, talked about the hit they took and the end of the race. “We did take a heavy shot in the left rear right in front of the tire, killed the quarter panel and all the crush panels. The S975 held up like a Sherman tank! The charging system quit (alternator cooling) with 10 laps to go and Kurt shut everything down to conserve some reserve capacity. The crew was worried but, I knew the “real” numbers and that we could run over half the race off of those batteries. He (Kurt Busch) made moves through the field like a surgeon, but without the best stuff available it would have been short lived. Thank you and your guys for fixing our electrical issues. It’s great to run the A1 parts like that S975 instead of the recycled suspect look alike. Our congratulations goes out to everyone at XS POWER! By the way, I load tested it afterwards, still 12.75 volts of charge and north of 500 Amps @ 9.6 volts with a VAT40. That’s a sharp scalpel in anyone’s book. On behalf of Kurt, Phoenix Racing and everyone at KBI, Thanks Again!”

XS Power is proud to be a sponsor of Kurt Busch and Phoenix Racing.

 

XS Power in the History Books!

Erica Enders and Cagnazzi Racing had been to the final round 6 times in the past and had come up a little short each time. Erica made her first ever Pro Stock finals in 2005 at Chicago, and going into this weekend at Chicago the team felt they had a good shot of making it back to the final round. Well Sunday in Chicago Enders made it to the final round and ran a 6.627 seconds at 207.40 mph to beat Greg Anderson and take home her first ever Pro Stock Wally. Enders became the first female ever to win in the NHRA Pro Stock division.

“”It’s awesome,” said Enders, the 12th female winner in an NHRA pro category race. “I think that if I could have planned it I would have asked to run Greg in the final. You know that he made it very clear that he didn’t want to lose to me. He’s a very competitive guy and I love him to death, but I couldn’t wait to beat him. I’m glad (the win) came here in Chicago. I had my first final in Pro Stock here in 2005, and so it was nice to circle back around and get it done here.

“Pro Stock is tough. It will humble you in an instant. When you think you’ve got it figured out, you go to Bristol and blow all your (engines) up. I can’t say enough about my guys (crew). They’re amazing, and I love them.”

XS Power is proud to be a sponsor of Erica Enders and Cagnazzi Racing!

 

Heading to Sonoma

Kurt Busch and the Phoenix Racing #51 Chevrolet head to Sonoma, CA this weekend. In 2011 Kurt lead the most laps and went on to win in Sonoma for his first road course win. Heading to the west coast may just be what the team needs right now. The #51 Chevy was very fast in practice and qualifying at Michigan, but a loose race car got him into to trouble early and made for a very long day for the team.

Kurt has 4 Top 5 finishes and 4 Top 10 finishes along with one win at Sonoma.

Kurt Busch Heads to Pocono

Phoenix Racing Inc. and Kurt Busch Inc. are getting ready for Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway. Kurt will be coming off of his Nationwide win at Richmond a couple of week ago. However, after a great performance, a late race accident at the Bojangle’s Southern 500 at Darlington knocked him out of a top 10 finish in last weeks Sprint Cup race.

The team has gotten off to a slow start so far this season in the Sprint Cup Series, as well as  the Nationwide Series mainly due to unavoidable accidents. However, Kurt has seen some big improvements from the start of the season. The Nationwide win at Richmond helped build momentum for Kurt has as he looks to come out of Charlotte with a good finish in both series this week.

Good luck Kurt!
