HMR/Elite Motorsports/Pertronix Performance Brands Pro Mod Season Update
Alta Loma, CA (August) –We debuted the new Pro Mod program at the Midwest Pro Mod March 1/8th mile race at the Texas Motorplex with Clint Hairston taking a win in the Slammers Class with a hole shot win over Dave Roberts (3.876 to 3.814).
Our NHRA Pro Mod debut came at Houston with Erica Enders driving at her first Pro Mod event. We fell short of qualifying running a best of 5.86. Unfortunately, we DNQ’d at Bristol and Norwalk but found some issues with the car that have been fixed. Our new crew chief, Jeff Pierce, felt that we would have a much better car heading into the $100K WSOPM Denver race. He was right, running a best of 5.92 at Denver altitude and but losing to the eventual winner, Carl Stevens, by .014 in the quarterfinals.
We move on to the Big Go at Indy and feel very confident that we now have a very competitive Pro Mod program. We look forward to the challenge of competing with the best Pro Mod cars in the country and representing our title sponsors Pertronix Performance Brands, Elite Motorsports, Strange, and Lucas Oil our many other product sponsors including: RJ Race Cars, Precision Turbo, Racepak, Precision Racing Suspension, M&M Transmissions, Comp Cams, Motive Gear, and CFE for their continuing support.
