Sportsman racers have pretty much gone big league thanks to a broad performance market that offers a remarkable variety of supercharging options and supporting components. Whether carbureted or fuel injected, the responsive aftermarket has provided racers with all the tools they need to make big, reliable power for their racing ambitions. Drag racer Patrick Carrigan teamed up with Basham Motorsports in San Bernardino, California to stack a deck of these performance tools with all the right cards for maximum dragstrip performance from his Vega. Combining a Dart Little M block, a Scat rotating assembly and Dart 18 degree cylinder heads with a robust Procharger F2 centrifugal supercharger, they tweaked a 421ci stroker small block to almost 1300 horsepower with a mild tune and plenty in reserve if needed. The era of big boost has set sportsman drag racers free to make all they power they can handle and they are all stepping up to claim their share of the fun.
