THROUGH­OUT HIS TUN­ING CA­REER, JIMMY PROCK HAS NEVER BEEN BASHFUL ABOUT CHAL­LENG­ING THE LAWS OF PHYSICS, ES­PE­CIALLY NEW­TON’S LAWS OF MO­TION. This has been es­pe­cially true through­out the past few months. Jaw-drop­ping num­bers ap­pear­ing on score­boards have rocked the sport. At Sonoma, The Auto

Club of SoCal “Rocket Guid­ance Of­fi­cer” Robert Hight blasted to the fastest speed ever recorded, 339.87. The T/F record is a pal­try 333.66. Hight has set Event Top Speed at least 10 times this sea­son. Then at Brainard, Prock struck again, pro­pel­ling Hight to 3.79 ET, F/C’s first sub-3.80 pass. What are the lim­its to how fast and quick Prock is able to pro­pel the Auto Club of SoCal F/C? Per­haps Prock and Hight are re­spon­si­ble for the spate of hur­ri­canes this year.
