October 22-24, 2010
Goliad County, TX
Last weekend, AMS made its way down to the October 2010 Texas Mile with the white AMS Alpha 9 GT-R and the AMS Drag EVO VIII. This was the third time attending the bi-annual festival – a standing mile event hosted the last week of March and October at the Goliad County Industrial Airpark, Texas.
The AMS Drag EVO VIII made its way back to the Mile with hopes of besting its 228mph pass from last March – this time, running on E98 and a host of improvements including a dry sump, a more efficient 42R-based turbo and forged steel connecting rods. The Drag EVO was running strong, but after a shakedown pass on Friday, driver Eric Jones was more concerned with the 30mph crosswind coming from the south and decided to call it the day for the drag car.
