KENNY RACING runs a versatile drag racing program that competes with identically prepared rear-engined dragsters in NHRA Super Comp and IHRA Quick Rod and Top Dragster.
The Father & Son team combines Al Kenny’s extensive racing experience with the enthusiasm and natural driving ability of his son, Jason. The identically prepared S&W Race Cars 4-link dragsters are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art hardware and electronics. Running twin cars provides the team with twice as much data compared to single car operations, increasing the odds for success.
Both cars feature 230″ wheelbases and are powered by alcohol burning 505″ BB General Motors powerplants prepared by D&D Performance. The team uses powerglide transmissions and 9″ Ford rear ends. Banner sponsorship is provided by Landa Pressure Washers with associate sponsorship coming from Jack Bowes Auto Service (Kingston, ON).
During the 2001 season the team amassed an inviable record of victories and late round finishes. Jason ended up 7th place in NHRA Division 1 points and Al finished 11th place (out of over 200 competitors!). The racing season was highlighted by Al’s huge national event win during the NHRA Advance Auto Parts Southern Nationals near Atlanta in May — his first career NHRA national event title. Al followed that up with strong quarter-final and semi-final round placings at Las Vegas and the season ending AAA World Finals at Pomona.
The 2002 season campaign will see the team in competition at some 25-30 NHRA and IHRA events spread out from Ontario to Florida and California.
