When the winter months were approaching here in northern Illinois and all big events done for the year, Byron Dragway hosts test n tune weekends till the snow flies. You will see mostly anything at these events as everyone is trying to get a few more passes in before the season is over. Honestly these last events can be somewhat boring but not when you have a local racer strike up a friendship with another racer, who comes from Minnesota to test and proceed to match race each other on multiple weekends much to the delight of the spectators! Eric Olsen, from Freeport Illinois, who by the way drives his Twin turbo '83 Ford Ranger to and from the track, takes on Lakeville, Minnesota's Nathan Shaw and his Twin turbo '71 Nova, who also has driven his Nova to Byron from Minnesota in a 3 day 3 racetrack event earlier this year. What also makes this matchup interesting is Eric's Ranger is a somewhat low budget build compared to Nathan's Nova but nevertheless holds it own. Watch as the guys battle it out with both drivers ending up setting their personal best times! Eric runs his best ever at 8.45@162mph with Nathan running an incredible 7.90@172mph! You can bet Eric is already planning on how to up his game for next year! Byron Dragway 10-16
