King Tut Captures Roots Blower Record
Yadkinville, NC: Todd “King Tut” Tutterow, in his Galot Motorsports 69 Camaro made a stellar impression on all that were watching him pilot his 69 Camaro to a World Record for Roots Blowers at an amazing 3.69 ET at 202 mph during the Carolina Xtreme Pro Mods race held at Shady Side Dragway this past weekend.
Tutterow qualified number 1 with the record breaking 3.69 ET to take on number 8 qualifier, Jeremy Creasman, in the semis Tutterow ran James Linton and in the finals Tutterow ran a 3.76 @ 199 to grab the win over Alan Pittman’s 4.15 @ 158 at the Shady Side Carolina Xtreme Pro Mod Race. Tutterow,”We had a great time at Shady Side and I want to Thank Ronnie Buff and his crew for a good track surface. We needed to test the New Ty -Drive Transmission and it along with the Hammer Supercharger looks like we might be on to something. My crew has done a great job this year and we are looking forward to great things to come.”
The previous record for a Roots blower was held by Tutterow’s Galot teammate, Kevin Rivenbark. Rivenbark set the record at Piedmont Dragway during the EOPM/Big Dog Shootout in October at a 3.713 ET at 198 mph while piloting Galot teammate, John Strickland’s 69 Camaro. Rivenbark’s 2015 Corvette had engine troubles and Strickland was gone to an NTPA event manning his Galot Motorsports Pulling Tractors which left Stricklands, 69 Camaro available for Rivenbark, so Rivenbark hop’s in the driver’s seat and sets the Roots blower record and wins the EOPM/ Big Dog Shootout at Piedmont Dragway.
