ADRLVMP-SUN

After a delayed qualifying session on Saturday we had to finish up qualifying for Top Sportsman and Top Dragster, Pro Jr. and Top Jr. We are getting ready for eliminations with Pro Extreme up first. Today’s weather forecast is good but will have temps in the high 80’s

 A special thanks to the presenting sponsor of our same day event coverage, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels!

 

Larry Obrien has NHRA Pro Stock driver Vincent Nobile driving for him this weekend sitting in for Mark Martino in the Bear’s Performance Extreme Pro Stock 2010 Dodge Avenger. This is Vincent’s first time racing at an ADRL event but he has been at several races in the past as John Pluchino is his uncle and also races in XPS. With two qualifying runs in the car his number six position in the field is good for the team. Bears Performance makes aftermarket components for a variety of application including the block and heads for this car and other engine designs. Jon Kaase builds the engines for the team. “It’s definitely different, something to get used to with the big power in these mountain motors. I’ve got a few laps under my belt now; I’m getting a little bit more comfortable. I’m really thrilled that Larry gave me the opportunity to be here this weekend” – Vincent Nobile.

Speedtech nitrous has developed a new water injection system that is here on display this weekend. The display model is a plate system and they also have a manifold spray bar design for sheet metal style manifolds. Using water injection helps to control detonation and slows the burn rate down some allowing the engine to use more timing.

Shannon Davis’ Davis Technologies is here with a display this weekend. He manufactures several traction control devises depending on your level of competition and a Bump Box that allows a driver to be on the trans brake and use a button to “bump” the car into the beams. The box is adjustable allowing it to be tuned to the combination putting the car in the beams much more consistently than a driver would be able to do. Originally designed for turbocharged applications due to the difficulty staging while on boost, the device has now found favor in the bracket racing market.
