Damon Merchant: Upgrades and the Potential Comeback to No Prep Kings Racing!

One of the most burning questions echoing across the street racing community lately has been, "Where is Damon Merchant?" Last season, Damon made quite the splash with his unique engine setup, leaving competitors in the dust and claiming the number one spot in the Saturday Invitational point standings.

Despite lacking the flashy sponsorships and massive stacker trailers that many others rely on, Damon's performance spoke volumes. Winning two invitationals and a notable grade eight, he established himself as a force to be reckoned with. His unexpected rise to dominance was a testament to raw talent and a relentless drive to win.

Recently, Damon has resurfaced on social media, particularly on his Facebook page under the handle "Rogue 405." What's more intriguing is his latest endeavor: upgrading his controversial engine. Last season's setup, which raised eyebrows with its unconventional features like a Y block and non-Billet crankshaft, is undergoing a significant overhaul. Damon is opting for a new Billet Callies Crankshaft, aiming to enhance durability and performance.

The engine in question, with its MBE cylinder heads and potent wedge motor, was not without controversy last season. Despite rule changes affecting its weight break eligibility, Damon remains undeterred. Speculation is rife whether he'll return to the No Prep Kings series, where his setup could still wield formidable power, albeit with different competitive dynamics.

While Damon hasn't confirmed his return, recent hints about the No Prep Elite Series suggest he's keeping his options open. His potential comeback could shake up the current standings and add an unpredictable edge to the championship race.
