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.
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
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)

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.

Coast Dragway, Holt, FL. Check back on DragCoverage.com for updates.
