With the stars of Discovery Channel’s show Street Outlaws like Murder Nova, Doc, and Monza all upgrading their cars to near Pro Mod status, it’s only natural that others who try and make “The List” do the same. Jeremy Rogers, pilot of the 1972 Nova known as “The Bank Note” is upgrading his car in an effort keep up with all the top players in the 405.

The Bank Note has been a labor of love and a family project for Rogers, who has a fascination with anything that has a motor. “The car was purchased as a back-half car over two years ago, and it has been getting upgrades ever since. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to get to do what I love, and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support from my family, friends, and fans,” Rogers says.

Now, The Bank Note is going through another round of updates to stay competitive with the top ten cars on Street Outlaws. A PA Racing chrome-moly tubular k-member and upgraded 7.50 certified roll cage will be added at Menacher Motorsports. Besides the chassis improvements, Menacher will get a new VFN fiberglass front clip and 5-inch cowl induction hood fitted on the car for weight reduction. The Nova will then be sent to Shannon’s Custom Paint & Body for final body work to be completed.

The Brad Racing Engines 598 cubic inch rat motor is getting some upgrades while the chassis work is done to the Nova, as well.

“We’re upgrading the engine with a set of Profiler Sniper X 24-degree heads and a Profiler Sniper tunnel ram intake that will be outfitted with four Nitrous Express foggers. The motor will also be receiving a custom grind nitrous cam and Crower stainless-steel shaft rockers,” Rogers explains.

All of these upgrades are being done by Rogers to help keep his Nova right in the mix on Street Outlaws.

“We’re making these adjustments to compete with the Pro Mod-style racecars while maintaining a stock look and factory wheelbase car. It comes down to doing what we have to do to stay competitive on the list,” Rogers says.
