Horsepower. It propels every race car. It can be the difference between winning and losing. It's extremely addictive. And we want as much as possible!

This issue marks the start of a new project car. It's a joint project between Circle Track and Bill Kimmel Racing consisting of a groundbreaking Super Late Model. The Billy Hess chassis is a combination of a traditional Super and the bigger truck arm cars run in the ARCA series. You can read all about the chassis in Jeff Huneycutt's story on page 30.

The car is being built for the ARCA/CRA Super Series, and we plan on running a schedule of select marquee races in 2014 with Will Kimmel behind the wheel.

It's easy to make huge amounts of power when there is no rulebook to level the playing field. When it comes to racing in the CRA Super Series, few people know how to make more power than McGunegill Engine Performance (MEP). DeWaine McGunegill, owner of MEP has loads of CRA wins and championships to his credit, and when we decided on an engine for our new car for the series, there was only one place to turn in the name of power.

The Equalizer. Three hundred and eighty-three inches of Ford power. It equated to 600 horsepower and 530 lb-ft. The sealed engine is one of the approved engines for the ARCA/CRA Super Series, and we wanted to take a deeper look into what makes this bullet so potent. Follow along as dissect the short-block in this issue. Next month we will take a look at the top end of the engine, as well as run it on the dyno.
