A Glastek fiberglass hood rises 4 inches in front of Kirk and his significant other, Kristen Lombardy. Kirk and Kristen reside in Sandusky, Ohio, just a stone's throw from Norwalk Raceway Park where the Monte has generated a fistful of 10-second timeslips. Shall we talk rock-solid consistency? Check these numbers from one evening of racing: 10.87 at 123.7, 10.87 at 123.8, and 10.84 at 124.0. His 60-foot times were 1.567, 1.569, and 1.567, respectively. The front suspension is stock except for one coil removed from the springs and the addition of Chassis Engineering three-way adjustable shocks. The front antisway bar was also tossed. The Monte rolls on Weld Pro Stars (15x5 front and 15x8 rear) and Dunlop P205/70R15 touring radials up front. On the back are Mickey Thompson ET Streets in a 28x13.50-15 size.
