Hughes Performance congratulates Mike Wood, driver Emily Herod, and the whole team at Nitrous Express on their 2011 NHRDA Top Diesel World Championship!  The team experienced a challenging season but powered through it to come out on top.  The Hughes Performance XP5 Pro Mod lock-up Powerglide transmission and GM107L torque converter went the whole season without issue providing the NX Top Diesel dragster with flawless and consistent performance.   Mike and the team plan on attending the remaining NADM events in Columbus (Ohio), Denton (Texas), and Orlando (Florida).  In addition to finishing off the NADM season team NX also has high hopes of setting a new land speed record in the standing mile in October at The Texas Mile racing event in Beeville, Texas.  With the 100% efficient lock-up Hughes Performance XP5 transmission and converter, a custom Gear Vendors overdrive unit, and carefully calculated rear axle ratio this phenomenal dragster will have 275+ MPH capability!  Best of luck to Mike, Emily, and the whole crew.  Hughes Performance is proud to be a part of the Nitrous Express diesel racing program, and looks forward to an even more exciting 2012!
