The half-mile racing format has gained a lot of attention just a few years after its inception. There’s a lot of prospects on the scene and it’s really interesting to watch the evolution of this racing format. In this video, we’ll take a look at the Revvolution Shift-S3ctor Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack where Morris Malone hopes that his Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will break the U.S. record.

Malone was previously told that he won’t be able to run his twin-turbo Corvette non-intercooled on methanol in a half mile and that he won’t be able to generate enough traction to reach his intended speed. Such negativity encouraged him to push the limits and after two years of hard work, he was able to build one of the meanest twin-turbo Corvettes in the planet.

Thanks to a LME-built 400 ci Dart LS Next LS-based bottom end with two Gen II Precision Pro Mod 88mm turbos, this badass Vette is able to crank up the power and do some remarkable things on the track as Morris and his crew chases the overall Corvette record of 223 mph and the 217 mph in the U.S.

When Morris said he started his journey at 14 psi of boost which translates to 1,200 horsepower and cranking it up from there, we know that his red Corvette Z06 would be a blast to watch. In its first pass, the car was able to hit 199 mph. After some fine tuning, Malone joined the 200-mph club and broke the US Corvette Standing Half-Mile Record. With his 220.80-mph pass on the second day of competition, Malone came within just 1.4 mph of the Corvette Standing Half-Mile World Record.
