NHRA Pro Stock has long been the top of the mountain for doorslammer drivers over the past 46 seasons since it’s debut in 1970. Many drivers enter the Pro Modified ranks in hopes to one day reach Pro Stock, and compete against NHRA’s best in the gear-jamming, naturally aspirated category. For the New Jersey engine builder Alan Prusiensky, after a successful 2015 rookie campaign he will be debuting his brand new Jerry Haas built Dodge Dart this weekend at the 19th Annual K&N Filters Route 66 Nationals at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois.
ARC Race Engines, built the powerplant under the hood of the Dart. Numerous teams outsource their engine programs to other teams, but Alan took the time and pride to build his own engine. The plan for Prusiensky is to complete the season and run the rest of the scheduled NHRA events.
Prusiensky blasted onto the scene after purchasing the Dodge Avenger previously piloted by Matt Hartford, and qualified for his first NHRA Pro Stock event during the Gatornationals in 2015. Alan fought through the tough class to reach the quarter-finals at Norwalk, and Englishtown in his rookie season
