Brand Loyal: Tommy Youman’s Twin Turbo GTO Judge Has A Billet Pontiac Engine And It Is Ready To Take On The World – Video

If you are a regular follower of the small tire drag racing scene Tommy Youman’s name is not entirely unfamiliar to you. He has run a few DuckX productions races down at South Georgia Motorsports Park in his naturally aspirated 1964 Pontiac GTO. As a life-long and dedicated Pontiac fan, the ’64 was running a big Pontiac mill based off of an aftermarket block and all the good stuff that you would expect.

Youman’s newest car, this stunning GTO Judge has steel roof and quarter panels, the nicest chassis we have ever seen, a billet, 505ci twin-turbocharged Kauffman Pontiac engine, and the highest tech engine management and fuel delivery that exists on the market today. Simply put, this is the most powerful Pontiac powered drag racing machine ever built. Therein lies the rub with this video. We’ll tell you right now that you will not be seeing or hearing horsepower numbers here, just a smiling Youman making the declaration that this is the most power Pontiac powered machine ever. We do not doubt him.

We’re not totally sure where Tommy is going to run this car but we expect to see it at SGMP and when we do, we’ll be drooling on it in person. It does not happen often, but occasionally race cars transcend their sport or particular arena to become machines admired by far more people than just others on a drag strip or whatever the medium is.

You do not have to give a rip about the drags to understand that this car is so freaking awesome, you’d kill to own it.

Enjoy the video and just understand the lack of horsepower numbers. How much does it make? A freaking ton.

    Amazing, and what a gorgeous car. Look forward to seeing it featured in more detail somewhere and to seeing it run. One thing puzzles me though, and maybe I’m missing the obvious, but that looks like a very expensive car, as all of them are at this level of racing, so my question is, how do operations like this finance a project like this and further, how do they even afford to run them race to race? I’d just like to learn the economics of it all. I have huge admiration for this team and all others who pursue this level of racing. To me, they are the energy in the sport right now.

      Here’s the math:

      1.) Be a rich guy

      2.) Run the car like 4 times a year

      3.) Keep being a rich guy.

    LOL, you beat us all to it Brian! I was gonna say you have to have some extremely deep pockets but you said it perfectly!

    BTW, what a gorgeous build! Would love to see this car line up against Big Chiefs similar but lower budget build although he would need to put on some big tires to make it a fair fight.
