Cannon Racing Motorsports competes in Kyle


Recommended Posts

Cannon Racing Motorsports has been itching to race from the unfortunate recent rain outs in Houston. This being the innagural season for Cannon Racing in the Pro Truck Series it has exciting, new and a learning experience for the driver, crew chief and the entire team.

 

Cannon Racing decided to attend a Pro Truck race at Thunderhill Raceway where they competed for a few years in the Allison series. The crew chief had made some chassis changes and was eager to test the Pro Truck prior to the next race in Houston. Shawn Cannon reported after qualifying that the truck was running really good. After the track invert the 45 Kimball Hill Homes truck was given pole. Cannon Racing led for several laps and eventually fell to second place behind the 42 Pro Truck, and finished the race in 2nd place.

 

During post inspection Cannon Racing was notified that the full roller rocker arms were illegal, and that the 45 truck would be disqualified. I had to chance to speak with the crew chief after the results. The crew chief stated " It is really an unfortunate situation. The crate motor came from the factory this way and we just assumed it was legal. We will be correcting this immediately once we get the truck to back the shop and put this race behind us and move forward. However I will make sure that everything is legal with tech inspection prior to the next race"

 

Cannon Racing is looking to forward to getting back on the track in Houston with their fellow competitors.

The correct 602 crate motor for trucks did not used to come with roller rocker arms from the factory. We sold 5 -6 of them, and they all had stock type rocker arms.

The tech sheet on the gm website say that it comes with stamped steel rocker arms.

 

The 400 HP engine comes with Roller Rockers. Is it the 400hp engine?
