Brown confident going into 2006 PMRA season
CALEDONIA, NY - With a new blower for the engine and fresh new copperhead orange paint for the Challenger body, Terry Brown and his team are energetic to start the 2006 Pro Modified Racing Association season.
The three-time OSCA Outlaw Champion and driver of the Terry Brown Racing 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T Pro Modified is poised for the PMRA special event schedule.
"The new PSI Screw Blower should give us a powerful edge over last year," said Brown. "Over all we've had back-to-back-to-back great seasons. The PMRA has some good competitors and we have our work cut out for us with these guys".
, 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T Pro Modified is powered by a 526-cubic inch Keith Black Hemi engine, a PSI Screw Blower, a Watermen fuel system, hooked to a Lenco three-speed transmission with a Crowler clutch.
"We are hoping to continue right where we left off last year," said team crew chief Jason Greenland. "The team is strong, our driver is one of the best, and are plan is to win some races and repeat our championship form."

The PMRA is a self-governing organization with its own set of technical and safety rules based on the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Pro Modified division. Cars in the PMRA capture the true spirit of hot rodding, and the class is one of drag racing's most exciting and volatile classes, capturing the true spirit of hot rodding and offering a wildly diverse group of racecars with different types of 2,000-horsepower engines. Combining classic body styles and modern equipment, constructors are permitted to extensively modify and enhance both appearance and performance. The cars burn gasoline or methanol, propelling them down the quarter-mile in low six-second times at over 225 miles per hour. The PMRA Pro Modified field is composed of the eight quickest teams from the qualifying rounds.
