Chrysler Nationals Rolling Exhaust Contest is Back

Chrysler Nationals Rolling Exhaust Contest is Back

See if You Have the Best SOUNDING Exhaust

This is your chance to make some noise and see if you have the best SOUNDING exhaust at the show. We’re NOT looking for the loudest exhaust – we want to hear the one that sounds the best! We don’t care if it has 4, 6, 8 or 10 cylinders, but it better have a good exhaust note. It’s a rolling exhaust contest so rather than flat revving your engine in neutral, you’ll be moving and going up a slight grade, so you’ll have a bit of a load on the engine.

Meet Paul Rossi, “Mr. Direct Connection”

Drag Racer and Road Racer for Dodge and DC

Paul is one of the few racers who had a successful career in more than one form of motorsports. Let’s face it, drag racing and road racing are about as opposite as racing gets. Sure, there have been a lot of racers who have competed in various series but they usually all involve going fast and turning. Paul spent the first part of his career going fast in a straight line then switched to road racing, which is an entirely different discipline.
