How drivers prepare for FD Pro2 2017

Rookies

Brandon Schmit #83
Last year he placed 3rd in the Evergreen Drift series. In the ProAm season the car had a stock LS2; to make the jump to the Pro2 level the car was upgraded to a Mass Motorsports RHS466 making 855HP. Other changes included Wisefab, and a Sikky sub frame. Brandon had only driven the car about 3 times before coming to the track,

“Learning to drive a car that is 3 times that car has been a task in itself; but we’re catching on quick. It’s been a huge step up from ProAm to the Pro2 level; it is amazing how good some of these cars and drivers are. We’re just going to continue to raise our own bar and we’re looking forward to Atlanta.”

Danny George #702
The Shango BMW E36 is a new build for Danny who has in the past had a Mazda Miata. This chassis was chosen because it has won championships in other sports and has a ton of bolt on parts available. The team chose to marry in Danny old 7 liter motor from the Miata. The whole build was about reliability and simplicity. This build really came down to the wire; the build only took 2 months and the team was still working to button everything up in Orlando.

Bear Rzesnowiecky #95
BMW E46 small block Chevy 5.7 is one of the most unique engines in the series. The all-aluminum block is built to take 8500 RPM and has about 700 HP and 680 HQ. This build took only 4 months, but this was the first time Bear has had any track time in the car.

George Kiriakopoulos #219
This is the first year George Kiriakopoulos is competing. George chose to build a new chassis for Pro2. His Universal Automotive Machine Nissan 370Z includes many custom parts. This is the first Wisefab 370, and it sports a very original Ford NASCAR engine. This car took him more than a year and a half to build.

Josh Robinson #530
The talk of all the Pro2 was the new Australian Holden UTE. This 1000 HP beast was built in Australia and finished in the US. Sporting an LS3 with a Magnuson supercharger this will be the car to watch as the series continues.
