Bill Perdikaris is a quietly spoken, and always somewhat a dark horse in Pro Stock.
Perdikaris hasn't contested any of the previous rounds this year, but assures everyone that the car and team are ready, and are excited to go testing at Sydney Dragway in preparation for the 400 Thunder Gulf Western Oil 51st Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway.
"We have been spending a lot of time on the dyno chasing horsepower with these new fuels, and feel now we should have a engine that is making good power," said Perdikaris.
"With championship points irrelevant to us, the weekend will be about getting win lights and proving the Perdikaris Ford Power."
"We are confident that if the conditions are there, we look to improve on our 6.983 196mph personal best ET. And are hoping to get into that elusive 6.8 second zone that all the teams seem to be heading for.
Looking ahead to testing next week at Sydney Dragway, which will be the final hit chance to sort the Pro Stock Escort out before the main game the following weekend in Queensland.
"Testing in Sydney will hopefully get the team and myself settled back behind the wheel, and some gearing changes to be made for the new horsepower," he said.
"But overall we are quite excited about just getting back out in front of the fans."
Ford Fans will be happy to see there is three cars representing the Blue Oval out the 14 cars entered for the Winternationals, and Bill Perdikaris will be leading the charge as the fastest Ford Pro Stocker in the country.
