Ben Shadday - New NHRDA Super Street Record Holder
Ben Shadday hails from Osgood Indiana, about an hour from Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. Since the 2012 World Finals where Shadday ran under the current NHRDA Super Street record but was unable to back the time up, Ben and the Done Right Diesel team has been working to have a consistent weekend and set a new record in the Super Street category.
It all came together at the 2014 Indiana Diesel Shootout, where after qualifying number one with a 9.69, Ben ran 9.523 in eliminations to set a new record in Super Street, bettering Rob Codden's old mark of 9.65.
"We had been after this since the 2012 World Finals, where we ran a 9.41, but couldn't back it up. We knew we could do it, and having it happen at Indy, just an hour away from home was great." commented Shadday.
"Thanks to our sponsors and to Randy Cole and NHRDA for their support of Diesel Drag Racing.", he continued.
