Summit Racing Midwest Drags Day 1 Coverage

The first day of the Summit Racing Midwest Drags is in the books. Thanks to the torrential amount of rain that fell on Monday afternoon at Edgewater Sports Park, it was a soggy start to this year’s event. Racing was delayed so the track could be dried off. The staff at Edgewater worked hard to give racers the best surface possible and they did a great job considering how much rain actually fell.

The required stop for day 1 was at Walt’s Hot Rod Shop in Brownsberg, Indiana.

Garrett Mitchell, aka Cleetus McFarland brought the “Mullet” El Camino to the Midwest Drags this year. The El Camino is sporting a brand new big-block Chevy powerplant from Steve Morris Racing Engines. Cleetus and his co-pilot Kevin Smith worked on taming the twin-turbo rat motor for most of the day and ran a best of 7.86 at 194 MPH.
