Michigan-based transmission company Liberty’s Gears will partner with the NHRA Mountain Motor Pro Stock Association for this weekend’s Dodge Indy Nationals presented by Pennzoil at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.
The Mountain Motor Pro Stock class is made up of various car manufactures all equipped with at least an 800-cid engine. They produce approximately 1,900 horsepower, use forward facing hood scoops, and run the quarter-mile in the low six-second range at nearly 230 miles-per-hour. Their appearance at Indy this year in their first of the 2020 NHRA season.
Liberty’s Gears owner Craig Liberty couldn’t think of a better fit.
“My dad, Joe Liberty, started Liberty’s Gears back in 1971 with hopes of one day being the premiere choice in transmissions for all drag racers,” he said. “His belief of providing his customers with the highest quality components and use of materials and machining methods still ensure our customers today are running the best transmissions on the market.”
“Partnering with the association seems natural. I love the sound of a Mountain Motor Pro Stock car and have always loved the class. With various mountain motor racers like J.R. Carr, Larry O’Brien, and Dwayne Rice running our transmissions, we feel we are well represented and have the opportunity to showcase the performance of our transmissions at this weekend’s NHRA event.”
The NHRA Mountain Motor Pro Stock class presented by Liberty’s Gears will take the track on Saturday for two qualifying passes. Round 1 of eliminations begins at 12:10 p.m. Sunday.
