    Frankie Taylor holds the fastest 1/8th mile ET Record in the United States with his 2007 C5 Corvette, after running 3.581 at the ADRL Maple Grove event in 2011. “Larry and his staff have built me several cars over the years, and each one has been capable of setting records, we look forward to the possibilities for the 2012 season,” said Taylor.
