Pat Stoken made history! He broke the nitrous record at 3.69 seconds with 201mph!
Veteran Pro Mod racer Pat Stoken made history with the first 3.6-second pass ever recorded by a nitrous-assisted doorslammer at the PDRA Summer Drags at the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park with a stunning 3.694-second pass during Pro Nitrous qualifying. He has done some pretty amazing passes but, when he ran a 3.694-second time during Pro Nitrous qualifications he truly made his team proud. Yes, this is the first that someone has covered the 1/8 mile in less than 3.7 seconds. And, in that time Pat reached a speed of almost 202 mph.
The two-day program opened with Stoken stealing the headlines when he ripped off a record run of 3.694 seconds at 201.07 mph. Stoken became the first driver to complete a one-eighth mile pass in under 3.70 seconds, and he earned a $5,000 bonus for doing so. He won all four rounds to win his class. He drove his 2014 Camaro to victory over Steve Jackson of Evans, Ga., in the finals, posting a winning pass of 199.03 mph at 3.755 seconds compared to Evans’ 133.21 at 4.127. Breaking down the barrier is a big achievement when you consider the fact that every single nitrous racer is heading for that goal. It’s insanely epic. Check it out!
