Summit Racing Midwest Drags Day 4 Coverage

The 2022 edition of the Summit Racing Midwest Drags finished up at Edgewater Motorsports Park with another day of exciting racing. A last-second audible had to be called about the start time by the event organizers and track officials to beat some bad weather that was inbound. The racers were unfazed by the change and put on one heck of a show for the fans that came out to watch the final day of competition.

Garrett Mitchell and Kevin Smith had an eventful week, to say the least as they fought through a host of issues. The El Camino’s new Steve Morris-built big block combination showed tons of potential early, but it required some coaxing to really bring it all out. Mitchell and Smith’s hard work paid off when the boards at Dragway 42 lit up with a 6.99 elapsed time. That run made Mitchell the first person to run a 6-second pass during the Summit Racing Midwest Drags. Mitchell went on to win the Unlimited class with a 7.30 average.

Ryan Hargett’s performance in the Super Street Small Block Power Adder class was impressive. Hargett absolutely torched the field with a string of passes in the 7.50s that any bracket racer would be proud of. The 7.57 weekly average that Hargett’s twin-turbo Mustang recorded was nearly two full tenths quicker than second-place Bradley Arnold.
