Chuck Lofgren and his team from Lofgren Auto Specialties in Cedar, Minnesota, treated our competition like a race. This team exhibited professionalism and an ability to think "outside the box." Even though an interpretation of the rules caused Chuck to build the smallest entry at 485 ci, his numbers really impressed us. With '68 casting iron heads and only 485 cubes, and the only competitor to run an air cleaner during the competition, the Lofgren's 725.4 hp and 596.3 lb-ft of torque had us asking "where did these guys come from?" On a side note: Lofgren's pulled their motor to 7,400 rpm after the competition pulls were complete, making 731.5 hp at 7,200 rpm!
