Mark Paquette has been getting his mail in the Winners Circle this year
The Mark Paquette/McIntosh Machine & Fabrication Pro Street racing team of Mark Paquette and Bud Yoder are on a major win and number one qualifying streak in 2016, as their 700 horsepower, turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusas have torn up dragstrips from Indianapolis to Rockingham, Louisville and Milan, Michigan.
This record-breaking missile is FOR SALE!
After skipping the NHDRO season opener, Paquette has won three straight. He also picked up a win at the Manufacturers Cup Rockingham round and at hotly contested Milan Dragway—where he shattered the track record. Paquette’s low ET of 2016 so far is 6.75 with a high MPH of 214. And guess what? This record-breaking missile is FOR SALE! Serious inquiries should be directed to Paquette at email@example.com
We catch up with Paquette, Yoder and chassis guru/swingarm master Terry McIntosh in this video interview at Louisville’s Ohio Valley Dragway after Paquette's third straight NHDRO win, his fifth win of the year overall:
The MPR team will test out their hot weather tune-up this weekend at the Manufacturers Cup’s HTP Performance Nationals at Memphis International Raceway on July 23-24.
“Special thanks to my wife Kerry and daughter Brooke, because without them I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m doing,” said Paquette. “Also thanks to my crew/nephews Brent and Thomas Paquette and my brother Tony, Bud and Kelly Yoder, and Terry McIntosh.”
Mark Paquette, Bud Yoder, and Terry McIntosh would especially like to thank McIntosh Machine & Fabrication , Ward Performance , and MTC , along with Energy Coil , Brock's Performance , Robinson Industries , Worldwide Bearings , Shinko Tire , Penske Shocks , RCC Turbos , Comp Turbo , Bellman Oil Company , and Schnitz Racing
