The World Of Drag Racing better prepare for Tim Tindle and Joey Martin. DragCoverage.com would like to proudly present to you the "Screamin Rat" of Tindle Tindle, Santa Rosa Beach Florida. Now, before I go any further, I need to introduce to the thousands of DragCoverage.com viewers, Joey Martin. Yes, Joey Martin, Milton, Florida, is responsible for this piece. I know you're probably thinking this car has been under construction for a while now.

Well, believe it or not, Joey Martin began the construction of this car on December 4, 2004, only 2 months ago. After qualifying #34 at the last outlaw street event, car owner Tim Tindle was not too pleased.

Hours later, he contacted Martin to sell the 2005 Outlaw Street Mustang and start on a 1968 camaro. Well, Joey did just that. He sold the 2003 Mustang to a die-hard racer from New Jersey. While meeting this die-hard racer at Gene Fulton's engine shop, Joey left a deposit on the new 738 CUI Fulton engine. "Working 16-20 hours per day, 7 days a week is not an easy task," stated Martin during an interview. Joey, who has raced most of his life, will also be driving the Tindle Enterprise Willy's Promod, capable of running 4.00's. Both this 68 camaro and the Willy's will be entered into the ORSCA (Outlaw Racing Street Car Association) Points series.

Lets Explore This "Screamin Rat"

The powerplant of this hotrod is something new to the world of dragracing; something even several promod cars today only dream of ----->>>>>> "Mr. 738 CUI Fulton Engine." This is the latest and greatest promod technology available.

Since Joey will be driving both cars in the ORSCA competition, he modeled the shifter combination and location after the Promod. "I can jump out of 1 into the other," stated Martin.

During the interview, Joey stated "I am living My Dream through Tim Tindle and Tindle Enterprises." Joey also stated that this car is far more superior than his 2003 Mustang, which ran a best e.t. of 4.71.

On March 6, 2005, Joey Martin will blast this beast down Emerald Coast Dragway, Holt, FL. Check back on DragCoverage.com for updates.
