The COMP Cams® Engine Builder Duel presented by Snap-on Tools drew large crowds of onlookers during the 2010 Hot Rod Power Tour
Due to popular demand, COMP Cams® held the Engine Builder Duel at three stops during the Hot Rod Power Tour. The contest, presented by Snap-on Tools, pitted two, two-man teams against each other to see who could assemble and run a Small Block Chevy engine the fastest. After every duel, the winners each walked away with a $250 COMP Cams® gift certificate. Runner-up team members each received a $100 gift certificate.
Kevin Gass and Scotty Schehan of Team RHS® won the first Engine Duel of 2010 in Bowling Green, KY. They completely assembled their engine in 30 minutes and 15 seconds. Team COMP® members Michael Frommholz and Michael Forchiane finished exactly one minute later at 31:15.
The following day, in Chattanooga, TN, Team COMP® won. Teammates Jake Kretzschmar and Arlando Johnson beat out Brad Pierson and Dave Freeman to win with a time of 32:19. This may have been the most exciting duel, as spectators watched the COMP® Team’s carburetor catch on fire and the RHS® Team’s engine drop several oil pan bolts as soon as it fired up.
Tim Weber and Ken Ferris set a new Engine Builder Duel record in Birmingham, AL, by completely assembling their engine in just 26:08. That’s the fastest time by any team that has ever competed in the COMP Cams® Engine Builder Duel. Birmingham Power Tour visitors also saw the first ever husband and wife team compete in the duel. Danny and Lisa Morson, of Team RHS®, came in a close second and dedicated their performance to their 4-month-old twins.
Both exciting and informative, the COMP Cams® Engine Builder Duel has been a crowd favorite at past events. The contest was once again a big hit with spectators and participants alike during the 2010 Hot Rod Power Tour.
