The first casualty was Jeff West's clean '70 Challenger. On his third pass, Jeff injected his 340 with a shot of giggle gas. Right off the line we noticed the tailpipes were puffing steam like an old locomotive. Jeff said, "I lost power and coasted to a stop only a couple hundred feet downtrack." Luckily, there was no parts or fluid spilt on the track. The following weekend, Moe Keys and Jeff replaced the head gaskets and the 340 was back in action. Despite the mishap, Jeff had a great time and was happy there wasn't any damage done to the motor or drivetrain.
