Ron Fassl Sets Six Fuel Altered
World Records in 2000!
by Scott Fortin
Fassl and Phoenix Racing were virtually unstoppable this year. Just about
every time they raced, the broke something – world speed record, track
record, ET record, and the occasional blower. Ron's
two greatest achievements this year were setting the new
World ET Record at 5.51 and a new World Speed Record of 264 MPH.
Ron Fassl, along with his
crew chief "Famous" Amos Satterlee, started breaking records right
from the start by driving their AA/Fuel Altered car at the Fuel Altered
Nationals at Southwest International Raceway in Tucson, Arizona. With
an awe-inspiring show of horsepower, Ron left the crowd gazing at a 257 MPH
pass with a 5.58 ET. It was a flawless run that brought the capacity crowd
to its feet as Ron Fassl set a new NHRA AA/Fuel Altered World Speed Record.
And it didn't stop there.
The team continued this
pace all season with an incredible showing at the Nitro Nationals in Salt
Lake City, Utah, with a 264 MPH pass, and again at the Pepsi
Night Fire Nationals in Boise, Idaho, with an ET of 5.51.
started racing nitromethane- fueled machines in 1969 and has been very
successful ever since. With Amos Satterlee as Ron's crew chief, success is
in the bag. Amos, an engine builder since 1958, has amassed a total of 13
World Championships himself.
