Driver/Owner, Shawn Ellington
Shawn Ellington aka Murder Nova was born in Merced California in 1977. He moved to Sayre Oklahoma in 1982 where he grew up sweeping up in the auto body shop that his dad Richard owned. Shawn moved to Oklahoma City in 2005 and not long after purchased what would become the Murder Nova. From the early days of procharged power to the twin turbo set up he has now, the flat black 1969 Nova has been an ongoing project to stay one step ahead of the competition and remain the fastest street raced car in the country.
