Although low 11s is first-round fodder in the NMCA's EZ Street class, you gotta give credit to Travis Lawrence and his 62,000-mile '73 Maverick-a car model we think should be more popular. Yeah sure, he's more than two full seconds off the competitive cars, but Travis boasts of up to 6,000 miles annually, hitting cruise nights and related "after hours" activities around Taylorville, Illinois. Factor in a price of just 8,500 bucks to build the car, and it's easy to see that this one-of-a-kind street/strip special is worth a closer look. Although Travis was running 11.30s at the Memphis NMCA race, he later broke into the 10s with a 10.78 at 126.8 mph at Gateway International near St. Louis, Missouri.
