A Fun Lov­inÕ Crim­i­nal?

Chevy High Performance - - Straight Line -

It was LOL for us around that moniker for Pete Maduri Jr.’s name in drag rac­ing, but it seems that quite of­ten the com­pe­ti­tion is not laugh­ing. Maduri, a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion drag racer, has been busy mas­sag­ing and rac­ing a very slick 1993 Chevy S-10. Pete con­firmed that his truck was orig­i­nally street driven up to about 1999 af­ter which it was back-halved and pur­pose-built by Buf­falo’s Ja­son Vitez for full rac­ing within NHRA’s Su­per Street class. This S-10 is now a light­weight ef­fort (2,850 pounds) that fea­tures a 565ci big-block rated at about 850 hp. That en­gine was built by re­puted Western New Yorker, Mike Ja­nis at Jan-Cen Rac­ing En­gines, whose fa­cil­ity is lo­cated close to Pete’s home­town of Clarence, New York. Pete en­joyed a ban­ner high­light sea­son with his Dynabrade-spon­sored ma­chine dur­ing 2018. He won his first ca­reer NHRA na­tional event at the New Eng­land Na­tion­als. Fu­ture plans for Pete and his dad (Pete Sr.) in­clude a sec­ond car af­ter ac­quir­ing a 1984 Ca­maro Stock Elim­i­na­tor last sum­mer.
