LaSala Takes Historic Win at a Sick Week to Remember

LaSala Takes Historic Win at a Sick Week to Remember

SICK THE MAG—Brett LaSala and the Snot Rocket Ford Mustang are officially the winners of Sick Week 2024 Presented By Gear Vendors Overdrive.

LaSala produced the quickest average in Sick Week history to win overall honors at 6.340 seconds, with a quickest time of 6.263 — which came from his final pass of the event.

The Coyote-engine, Modified-class Mustang has rapidly become one of the most impressive drag racing vehicles in the world — let alone street cars — since it burst onto the scene just a year ago. LaSala said that while the car has had some improvements from Sick Week 2023, the gains were mainly about building data and learning what the car wanted.

“It’s unbelievable,” LaSala said. “We knew the car was fast coming into the event, but one pass is one pass. To have the average in the 6.3 range and win overall against someone like Jeff Lutz  is just amazing.

“Last year we had only been racing the car for about three months. We got better, the tune up got better and it’s making more power with new turbochargers. We have been slowly creeping up on horsepower because we don’t know the limits of the factory cast block.”

LaSala’s average was the third quickest overall in drag-and-drive history, behind Jeff Lutz’s 6.191 (Drag Week 2016) and Tom Bailey’s 6.299 (Drag Week 2019). It was by far and away the quickest average on a radial tire.
