401 AMC Pacer Vs 440 AMC Pacer

My 1978 Pacer (black one) with a built AMC 401 and 5-speed manual transmission versus a 1976 Pacer with a Mopar 440 with a 3-speed auto at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN on June, 12 2009 as part of the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. My dad was driving in this run, and unfortunately could not get the rear tires to hook up. The Red White and Blue Pacer hooked up, and thus the result. Winner: Red White and Blue Pacer with a 13.72@101.85 followed by our car with a 14.54@96.36. Well work on the car, find a way to get her to hook up, and well be back again. 13s shouldnt be a problem and itll give us something to aspire to. Also, please excuse the sub-fanatics level of camera work...this was me behind the camera as Dan did not come with me on the Power Tour.
