MoparStyle Racing Buys Texas Big Bird
Dave Schultz of Richmond, Texas buys the IHRA Pro Mod Superbird "Texas Big Bird" from Matt Tolbert of Austin, Texas. The sale included the 'Race Ready" Superbird, some spare parts, and the body molds.
Texas Big Bird has been one of the most recognizable Mopars in Drag Racing history. Dave Schultz is the owner and administrator of MoparStyle.com, which is the fastest growing Mopar community on the Internet. Texas Big Bird will fly the MoparStyle banner.
Intentions are to race the car in the Pro Outlaw Street division of NMCA and Pro/Street in the PRO series with Monte Smith of Monte Smith Racing handling the driving and crew chief duties.
Texas Big Bird has been transported to Alabama to be prepared for 2003 exhibitions and match races; and the 2004 racing season. As of this writing this wicked machine is undergoing a complete facelift.
