Luke Bogacki's New C7 Corvette Roadster Hits the Track
Luke Bogacki has had 2 very gorgeous Corvette Roadster over the years that have gotten their fair share of ink in the winner's circle at a vast majority of major events from NHRA National Events to Big Bucks Bracket Races. Luke debuted his first Vette in 2012 and won the NHRA Super Gas World Championship in 2014 with it. Then backed it up with his 2nd Vette in 2015 in which he won multiple races with including the 2015 JEGS Allstars before selling it in 2017.
Roadster #3 comes in the form of another Charlie Stewart built hot rod, but this time a C7 Corvette bodied beauty.
Chase Huffman from Accelerated Graphics drew up the wonderful rendering to go off of, letting all our viewers see what the finished product will look like before Luke debuts it at Indy in a few weeks.
Luke snuck the gorgeously T2G Customs painted roadster out for a little testing this past weekend in Madison, Illinois where he ran the car both on and off the throttle stop. The Huntsville Engine power / BTE coupled roadster bested both sides of what Luke was looking for with a 9.90 / 169 mph lap and went 4.92 / 141 mph in 1/8th mile bracket trim.
We know Luke is "all business" when he gets to the track and we're gracious that he provided DRR and our readers this sneak peak look at the beautifully built #3 prior to it's official debut at Indianapolis. We wish him all the best with the latest This is Bracket Racing Elite assembled race car.
