Dunn and gone?

Dunn took to the microphone at this year’s World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova International Raceway.  A note in the old mayo jar this morning tells the Agent that Mike Dunn has been let go as president of the IHRA by owner IRGSE.


According to a reliable source, the IRGSE offered Dunn a consultancy position at a pay cut and he declined. IRGSE reportedly then offered Dunn a small percentage instead of his full compensation package as president. The IHRA now is a sportsman drag racing sanctioning body with no professional classes.


In a phone call today with DRO an IRGSE spokesman said that Dunn was still with the company, but there were talks going on. Surely, more is to come.

New Product of the Day


Aeromotive Brushless Fuel Pump Series

Aeromotive has introduced the company’s first series of brushless fuel pumps. Designed specifically for extremely high horsepower vehicles, the new brushless series of pumps offer improved performance and efficiency especially for ethanol-fueled, street/strip applications. Through years of research and development, Aeromotive created four new brushless pumps – the Brushless A1000, the Brushless Eliminator, the 3.5gpm and the 5.0gpm Gear Pumps. The company’s new brushless technology creates less heat, draws less power and eliminates the potential for wear – ideal for dual purpose applications requiring a continuous duty fuel pump. The four new brushless Aeromotive fuel pumps are available in three configurations: 1) external in-line, 2) direct drop-in replacement for any Aeromotive fuel cell, including COPO, Cobra Jet or Drag Pak factory race cars, or 3) as complete fuel cells available in 6, 15 or 20 gallon capacities.
