JUST cane it! That was the plan for Queenslanders Stew Walsh and Dan Case, who took turns steering Stew’s 350ci small block Chev-powered HK Kingswood at Street Machine Drag Challenge Weekend.

While Stew and Dan usually play with a six-second Pro Mod Camaro, for Drag Challenge Weekend the boys entered Turbosmart Dial-Your-Own for some relaxed good times.

Pulling a tinny loaded up with their tools and camping gear, the boys ran a string of 12.3-second passes that wavered only by 0.009sec.

That was good enough to nail them second place in DYO, behind Andrew Dunnett’s clinically-awesome Gen III Hemi-powered CL Valiant ute.
