Dennis "Kilowatt" Berube and the Current Eliminator team would like to congratulate Don Garlits on his latest entry in the record books. Onboard his electric-powered SR-37 dragster on April 30, 2014 for its first full runs, Don recorded an unofficial mark of 7.26 seconds at 184.01 miles per hour and an official record of 7.526 seconds at 178.42 miles per hour. 2014 marks 50 years since Mr. Garlits broke the 200 mph barrier in 1964. Now his team is set on making him the first to eclipse that mark on battery power. Best of luck, Don!

Christmas 2007 came a few days late for Dennis "Kilowatt" Berube, but he couldn't be happier. Rewarding Dennis for all his hard work on Current Eliminator V, Santa Claus delivered a new world record! Catapulted by its new Altairnano lithium-titanate batteries, Dennis piloted the dragster to a new, official time of 7.956 seconds at 159.85 miles per hour. It was Sunday, December 30th at Southwestern International Raceway in Tucson, Arizona. Having just set a new, unofficial record two weeks earlier, all eyes were on Dennis Berube as he shaved time off his ETs run by run. Amazingly, the very best is yet to come, as conditions would not allow for the true power of the dragster to be let loose. Once again, here's the official press release...
