Richard Knarich, Sr.

Part of being a great Crew Chief is to truly inderstand what racing is all about. Richard competes in the class of Super Street. Unlike Super Gas, all of the cars in this class are "Door Slammers" and typically cover the quarter mile at about 130 to 145 mph and are all bracketed to a 10.90 second index. Although Super Street is considered an entry level class, make no mistake anout it - this class is highly competitive.
