Chris Cline has a long history of piloting powerful race cars.
The owner of Chris Cline Race Car Technology in Mooresville, North Carolina, started racing more than 25 years ago, and is competitive in several cars and series, whether he is behind the wheel of his car at a Pro Mod race or a customer’s car at a grudge race.
One of his most well-known cars is called Christine. He raced his original Christine in NMCA Pro Street back in 2009, and was very successful in various versions of the car over the years. To great fanfare, he debuted his latest version of Christine, which he owns with Dave Heitz, in 2023.
Built at Chris Cline Race Car Technology, the car featuring the latest technology has a double frame rail, double adjustable four-link brackets, adjustable strut cups and what Cline refers to as a large amount of titanium.
Its interior showcases carbon fiber, and the chock-full of character 1958 Plymouth Fury body has carbon fiber components produced by Chris Cline Race Car Technology, CFM and Hairy Glass.

The car is powered by a 521 cubic-inch Brad Anderson Hemi prepared by Dave Heitz
and a C-Rotor PSI screw blower with 92 percent overdrive, paired with a Lenco transmission, Greg Slack converter, Ty-Drive converter drive and PST carbon fiber driveshaft. It rolls on Weld wheels wrapped with Hoosier tires in back and Goodyear tires in front, and Cline recorded a best of 3.72 and 211 mph last year.
He is now preparing to introduce the car to NMCA VP Racing Lubricants Xtreme Pro Mod action at the 16th Annual NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals presented by Sipple’s Speed and Performance, April 11-14, 2024 at Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina.
“This will be my first time racing in NMCA Xtreme Pro Mod, and I’m looking forward to it,” said Cline. “The competition is tough, but I have help from a great crew of guys who work very hard, and our goal is to win because we would like to chase the points. We ran 3.72 when we debuted this car last year, and we are looking to go low 3.60s depending on the weather at the race in North Carolina.”
