TPiS Runs at Bonneville Salt Flats

John Cottrell, brother of TPIS owner Myron Cottrell, who took a 99 Monte Carlo Busch car and made it street legal decided to see just how fast he could go with it. This car was built for competition on the Superspeedways of the NASACAR Busch series. In 1999 it had a Daytona qualifying speed of 187 MPH. There wasn't much changed to change it over for street use. O.E. Headlights and taillights were added along with turn signals and a speedometer. It uses NASCAR wheels and 'prototype' NASCAR rain tires.

John exceeded his expectations and is returning to Minnesota with one more item checked off of his "before I die" list.
