Gearing up for the next year and wanting to finish out the current one on a positive note makes teams strive harder to succeed and prove they are ready. This year's Street Car Super Nationals in Vegas were no exception, with a lot of records being broken and personal bests achieved.

Ever since Coby Rabon's Mustang rolled out the doors of Proline’s shop, we knew it meant serious business. In Thursday's test session Rabon laid down an impressive 6.01 elapsed time followed up with a 6.001, showing he was ready to take on the competition with deadly consistency. That wasn't the big news however, as he went out in the 2nd round of qualifying posting up a 5.98 at 243mph.

Rabon then went on to redlight in eliminations, although he still ran a 5.96 pass - what people thought would be an easy win proved to not be in the cards this weekend. Even though the outcome of the event itself was rather dismal with a red-light, Rabon went on to say, "I would like to thank Proline Race Engines for getting this package together. Our year started out a little bumpy; we wrecked in March and Alan Pittman Race Cars helped us get it back together. We feel very lucky to run as good as we have with a new combination. This is due to working with good people like Steve Petty, Hank Hill with Hooked Up and Gone Race Car Technology and all the guys at Proline that put together this amazing 670 Cubic inch motor." I would have to agree, Coby, twin 94mm Turbos on a motor like that is insane.

Knowing what Proline has done in the past with car's like Tim Lynch's we know they are just getting started with this car. If the 5-second runs are impressive, just wait to see what this car can do once more passes are made and improvements are made in the necessary areas. Perhaps the crew will decide the car is deserving of a fresh coat of paint to replace the primer? Who knows, but what we do know is this is not your everyday '07 Mustang!
