Al Marlow

Al Marlow and his Clements, MD based 1991 Chevrolet Camaro have left their mark on both of MIR’s Drag Radial category’s over the past 8 seasons. Multiple event wins and strong points chase finishes in Outlaw Drag Radial and X275 have left Marlow hungry to capture his first Championship title in 2014. Pulling double duty in both ODR and X275 is no easy task, requiring a strict maintenance schedule as well as the skill to make quick repairs when needed both of which Marlow and small team of friends and family handle in house.

The strenuous schedule also takes a collective group of not only “go fast” parts but reliable ones. The Camaro’s 582” Big Block Chevy packs a healthy single stage of Nitrous putting a heavy demand on the entire drive train. ATI Performance Products answers the call with one of their tried and true 2-speed Transmission and Torque Converter packages. The car is also fitted with Spohn Performance suspension components which help plant the Mickey Thompson Pro 275 drag radials into MIR’s pavement. Al has hopes of breaking into the 4.50 E.T. zone this season which is only a few ticks from his current best of a 4.68. Catch Al’s 3rd generation Camaro doing battle with some of the worlds’ fastest Mustangs, Corvettes, Vipers, Novas and Firebirds on Radial Tires as Maryland International Raceways 6th Annual Door Wars invades Budds Creek April 11-13 2014.
