(Feb. 9, 2018) - BOOM!! One of the most talk about classes coming into 2018 is East Side Auto Transport Pro Outlaw 632! Comments are flying around Facebook with one “Young Gun” that wants to SMOKE his competition. That being non other then Johnny Pluchino!

Exciting is one way to put Johnny as a driver. Always keeping fans on the edge of their seat with his “Bring It ON” racing mentality. This is is second year entering PDRA competition. Johnny states, “I first want to thank the PDRA and East Side Auto Transport for the stage. Second and most importantly, I want to thank my Dad, Dominic Addeo and my team for the opportunity. Now let's go make the most of it”! Team Pluchino Racing is wasting no time by having engine builder John Kaase updating the 632 cubic inch engine. Taking it to the next level weight is flying off by adding a Feather-Lite Battery aboard the trustworthy Ford Escort.

Cool, calm and collected Johnny knows how to fire up his competition around the pit area with some “smack talking”. Crowds like when they can feel the tension and rivalry between competitors! Not only is this good for Drag Racing, but it keeps things interesting. Johnny goes on to say, “This year I am looking forward to helping the Pro Outlaw 632 Nitrous guys pack up early. I want to make sure they beat the rush home!” Nothing beats a Naturally Aspirated Engine rowing through the gears at high RPMS!

PDRA is coming in full force, “I really think 2018 is going to be special for the PDRA as a whole. Pro Mods, Pro Stocks, Bikes, the fastest sportsman racing there is and mark my words a class that's about to be out of control entertaining, Pro Outlaw 632.” Johnny says in closing! Keep your eyes peeled to Speed Video! Johnny is a gifted driver who will eventually drive in Liberty Gears Extreme Pro Stock! Right now, Johnny is all focused with one thing on his mind being a 2018 East Side Auto Transport Pro Outlaw Championship!!!
