Martin, MI – Some of the biggest names in Pro Mod racing lined up to compete at the IHRA Nitro Jam.
Bill Lutz, running a brand new Elite 2500 setup in his Pro Mod Camaro, was keen to prove a point and made his intentions clear right from the start.
“We started the weekend a little slow but by Q2 we had fixed all the issues and started running good ETs, in fact, our times improved every single round!”
Bill was consistently fast with 6.44, 6.11, 6.03 and finally dipped into the 5-second bracket with a 5.95 in the semis. In the finals Bill lined up against Steve Matusek. Bill pulled an amazing 5.93 ET and a win light to claim the win.
Canal Winchester, OH – It’s official, we are going to race with the newly formed Crower IHRA Pro Mod class. The announcement by the IHRA leadership at the 2014 Performance Racing Industries trade show in December of the return of the class they created many years ago was not news to Bill Lutz Racing. “I had been working with the IHRA tech department for some time trying to help shape the rules for the new class.” stated Lutz. “It was an honor to work with an organization who’s primary purpose is to support the racers, fans and industry as a whole. Their vision for the future of drag racing and for the Pro Mod class has many of the competitors looking forward to the inaugural season of the rejuvenated class. We have great expectations for the IHRA and Pro Mod in general.”
Lutz will also be running select events with the NMCA in their Pro Mod class. Bill explained further, “The rules are close between the 2 organizations and we have a combination that is very competitive in their class, so it makes sense to run the close events. To have more than one place to race is a huge bonus, especially with a few of their races being close to our Ohio based operation. We look forward to the fierce competition across the board in both organization.”
Bill Lutz Racing is teaming up with the Xtreme Outlaw series to bring Pro Mods to their race and the plan for now will be 12 cars and under it will run on a 8 car field and 13 and over will move a 16 car field. It will be at least $2,000 to $2500 to win, $1,000 runner up, $250 to the Semi finals, and $125 to qualify.
Bill Lutz Racing is working on additional sponsors to get the pay up from winner to qualify positions and will keep everyone posted on the pay out as it increases. Bill would love to make it $5,000 winner, $2,000 R/U. $1,000 for semi finals amd $250 to make the field but will need some sponsors to make it happen. All payouts are 100% guaranteed. Entry will be $125 which includes driver and 2 crew.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for this great opportunity contact Bill at email@example.com

Lutz Racing pulled into MIR for the 3rd race on the NMCA schedule, as we approached round 1 of qualifying I knew there was something magical about MIR and the track surface there. Royce and Jason Miller had the track on kill and we unleashed a 6.01@246MPH to take the #1 spot in qualifying and that run was quick enough to set up the first part of a new National ET and speed record. In round 3 of qualifying the Lutz Racing / Turbo by Garrett 69 Camaro left the line and 5.97 seconds later the score boards popped up with a speed of 247.42 setting the record for the quickest and fastest run in the Pro Street class and the MPH was a record for the fastest pass ever made by a Pro Mod at MIR. We went on to win the event over our good friend Jeff Lutz running a pedaling 6.09@242. Thanks again to all our sponsors that make this possible.
We leave Thursday for the BATTLE OF THE BIG DOGS Pro Mod shootout at the HOUSE OF HOOK in Aiken,SC. There will be at least 40 of the baddest Pro Mods in the country running for the 50K winner take all purse. Wish us luck and hopefully we bring home the $$$$$$.
The Lutz Racing / Turbo by Garrett Camaro is waiting in sunny Florida for us to return March 15th – 18th and kick off the 2012 racing season. First stop Bradenton, FL for the NMCA series, we look forward to some serious competition and I feel the 2012 season will be the most competitive ever in the history of the class with some new cars that were built and some past champions returning to competition. If you’re at the track please stop by and introduce yourself. Here’s to a fast and safe 2012 season.
Lutz Racing showed up at Bradenton Motorsports Park not knowing really what to expect from the tricky Florida sun and our new car.
Q1 comes around and we make a nice 6.07@246mph pass good enough for the #3 spot at the moment out of 13 cars.
Q2 of qualifying comes calling and we unload a email@example.com good enough to move us up 1 poisition to the #2 spot.
Q3 up next and we run another 6.0 pass which was a 6.04@239 shutting it off early because I felt it pick a miss in the engine. We still stay in the #2 spot for race day.
After looking at the motor and finding nothing wrong to make it pick up a miss we changed out a plug wire, cap and rotor and hoped for the best come round 1.
As we are leaving the pits for round 1 we notice the tire on the drivers side is cut really bad and needed to be replaced but with little to no time at all we sprung into action knocking the center out of a different wheel of my chassis builder Scott Braskett and installing my center in his wheel for our bolt pattern, So we barely make it up there in time to race and know I have to gather myself and think about the race. We stage up and when the tree drops I was pleasantly surprised the car went straight and had no miss in the engine running a 6.02@242 shutting it off a little early.
Round 2 We have the European Pro Mod champ Adam Flamholc all the way from Sweden, We both light the top bulb and I go in first to the 2nd bulb and waited for what seems like hours but really it’s only seconds and when the tree drops we are behind from the beginning and never making up the difference at the tree. We ended up losing his 6.02 to my 6.04 and with that our weekend was over a semi finish position.
We did win the automatic Pro Mod field with the Grand Am I usually drive for Mark Wells but this time Mark was behind the wheel and doing a great job of driving, he made his way through a very tuff field of cars to meet up with Bill Conley from KY in the finals and Mark won it with a 4.02@192MPH pass.
