Summit Racing Midwest Drags Day 2 Coverage

Summit Racing Midwest Drags Day 2 Coverage

The US 41 Motorplex in Indiana was the destination for day two of the Summit Racing Midwest Drags. The weather was a factor for the second day in a row, as this time there was a threat of strong storms. Many participants made their two runs as quickly as possible and started the long trek to Callies Performance Products in Fostoria, Ohio for the required stop of the day.

Drag-and-drive events are really all about the journey, whether it’s good or bad. Racers who have mechanical issues on the first day will load their broken ride up on the trailer and follow the event so they can still experience it. If you happen to live along the route for one of these week-long torture tests, chances are you’ll see some pretty cool cars in the host hotel parking lot, or at a local gas station.

Brandon Doller is getting the full drag-and-drive experience this week during the Summit Racing Midwest Drags. The Nova Doller is driving was a shell in primer just a little over 30 days ago, so it took a significant amount of work to even make it to the event. When Doller arrived, he discovered the 5.3 liter LS that powers the Nova had a dead hole, but he still decided to send it and finished the first day of racing. Well, during a pass as US 41 the little LS engine had enough of the boosted shenanigans and let a whole bunch of smoke out at the top end. Did Doller throw in the towel? Absolutely not…he limped the Nova over to Mid America Kustoms so a fresh LS could be swapped in.
