Here Comes the Fireball Run....


Team IHRA to participate in FIREBALL RUN: America's Frontier, a Race to Recover America's Missing Children 

Jupiter, FL - Team IHRA has been selected to participate in Season 8 of FIREBALL RUN America's Frontier, an online reality-filmed entertainment series.  
Since 2007, FIREBALL RUN has been The Most Epic Adventurally in America®, a gripping 8 day, 2000 mile, life-size trivia game, where America serves as the game board: part live event, part streamed, and part 25 episode series. Unlike reality TV, FIREBALL RUN is authentic and real; 40 celebrity and aspirational driving teams compete for bragging rights, a greater cause, and a plastic road sign - all while raising awareness for missing children.
Driving a 2007 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, Team IHRA has been assigned and will raise awareness for local missing child, Cameron Parmer. Cameron Parmer, now 16 years old, has been missing since October 29, 2013. Local Participant Aidy Alonzo hopes to raise media attention that could inspire someone to come forward with new leads for police. "We are honored and privileged to be participating in this campaign to locate Cameron Parmer and help bring him home to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida," noted Aidy Alonzo, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG), the parent company of Team IHRA and the International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA).
Fireball Run

To move about the country and score, teams solve clues and accomplish tasks based on area, points of interest, history and culture. Although a living trivia game, there is nothing trivial about FIREBALL RUN's message or results. Often referred to as "the most fun you will ever have, doing the most important thing you've ever done", every team is assigned a missing child from their home of origin and tasked with distributing posters; the effort annually distributes 65,000 posters across America and has aided in 43 recoveries since 2007. Child Rescue Network serves as the show's official charity.

The event is streamed live. Supporters and fans can track Team IHRA's location via live GPS by AmberAlertGPS at All seasons and episodes are available online at

Other notable Season 8 participants include Shuttle Astronaut, Jon McBride; Pro Rodeo Champion, Kelly Kaminski; Miss Rodeo America 2008 / RFD TV Host, Amy Wilson; 10 time WPRA World Champion Roper, Jackie Crawford; Ohio State Representative Marlene Anielski; Missouri State Representative Steve Lynch; FRISCO, TX. Mayor Maher Maso; Lake Placid NY Councilman, David Jones; Frisco TX Councilman, John Keating; Honorable Debe Terharl; Dragster Drivers, Elaine Larsen & Marisha Falk; Alfred-State University Dean, Craig Clark; noted Author, Theresa Flores; renown Cardiovascular Surgeon, Dr. David Vanhooser; Orlando Film Festival Executive Director, Dan Springen; CNBC Car Chasers Jeff Allen; Stunt Director Artie Malesci.
Participant vehicles range from the Delorean Time Car from Back to the Future, the Rally Fighter from Transformers: Age of Extinction,1978 Rolls Royce, Aston Martin DBS, Bentley Continental GTC, Ferrari 458 Italia, 1972 Ford Ranchero, 1976 Chrysler Cordoba, Hennessey Camaro, and representation from Ford, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Dodge, Hyundai, Land Rover and Honda.

Test your mettle at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Las Vegas may be legendary for its nightlife but it’s also the perfect destination for a road trip, with plenty of opportunities to practise your drag racing along the way. The quiet expanses of outlying desert roads are a major draw card, and Nevada is the perfect destination for any speedster looking to put foot and test the true potential of their muscle car.

Vegas is also home to a huge muscle car and drag racing community, and once you’ve arrived at your intended destination the driving experience doesn’t have to come to an end. You can simply consider your road trip as practise time before you hit the track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) is an extremely popular venue that not only offers a safe alternative to street racing, but boasts multiple world-class tracks ideal for drag racing. Just 15 miles northeast of the Vegas Strip you’ll find this 1,200 acre race complex, and NASCAR events, hot rod and drag racing feature on an almost daily basis.

If you want to enjoy an adrenalin-fuelled experience that extends beyond the Vegas-style entertainment at Riverbelle online casino or at one of the many famed resorts, you need to put your racing skills to the test at a Mopar Midnight Mayhem event. This event is now in its 13th year at LVMS and is considered one of the most intense drag races in America. Any street legal vehicle may compete and the quarter-mile drag strip allows for some impressive racing action.

Vintage Chevy’s, Mustangs, Camaro’s and Challengers are just some of the muscle cars that regularly partake in this drag event and even if you don’t want to try your luck at some serious racing, being a spectator is also an incredible experience. The roar of the engines is absolutely deafening and you’ll see some of the finest technical driving on display.

LVMS gives drivers the opportunity to enjoy flooring their accelerators and unleashing the full potential of the horsepower hiding under the bonnet. A road trip to Vegas isn’t only a great practice run for this experience, it’s also the ideal way to test your mettle and enjoy your muscle car to its full potential, on the open road and on the track.

blank 07/23/14 08:07AM NV3500, Transmissions

Questions and Answers from Midwest Transmission

I have a Silverado, Chevy 2000 1/2 ton 4WD.

Question:  Just bought this truck. Will nv3500not go into reverse. It grinds and pops out. It also makes noise going forward. Should I repair or replace. Previous owner towed 8000 lb. trailer and backed it up. It stopped working shortly after. Also says 5th is bad too. Is it bad 5/R syncro or gear?, shift fork?

Answer:   From you description of all the problems it sounds like possibly excessive bearing wear is allowing shafts to move, plus damaged 5th reverse gear and synchro assembly and shift fork wear beyond the limits. The best option would be to install one of our rebuilt NV3500 transmissions in your ½ ton 4WD pickup truck.

Order our part number MTGM007 your cost is $1133.33 plus $250.00 core deposit plus Shipping. This transmission will have all new bearings, gaskets, seals and syncro rings and a one year warranty.

For more information give Scott a call toll free 888-824-2012 he can help you.
