Featured Car - Robert Kraus's 1987 Grand National

The "Red Light Wheelie" as Bob storms to an another low 11

Bob is one of the few, ever diminishing original owners, of the pictured '87 GN. He bought it new on January 4, 1988. Hard to believe, but there was not a big demand for the cars back then and the dealers were discounting to get them off the lot in Dallas, Texas, where Bob lives. The car now runs consistent low 11s, and probably has a 10 in it, if Bob can get enough fuel to it.

Bob is probably the only Commercial Bank Vice President that races and works on these cars !
