Snyder Takes the Top Sportsman Vette to The Rock
with a New Associate Sponsor for His Hot Rod: HotRod Tracker
As the Professional Drag Racers Association heads back to the birthplace of the exciting 1/8th mile door slamming series, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team roll into Rockingham Dragway excited to get their 2016 Season started. The Snyder Motorsports Crew is rolling into North Carolina’s The Rock with a little extra confidence this year. Their inventive Supercharged, ComSyncEFI and Lencodrive Racing Transmission combination now has a season of successful testing in Top Sportsman trim and the trophy from the PDRA Memphis Drags to prove it. The former Pro Extreme and Alcohol Funny Car Champions hope to use last year’s experience from this winning combination to hoist the Spring Nationals trophy in Winner’s Circle after the race on April 8 and 9.
“I know I say this every year before the first race, but this has been a crazy off-season for Snyder Motorsports. The shop seems busier now than ever and I have been traveling a lot with the record holding Bad9er Pro Drag Radial Team of Kyle Huettel and Jason Michalak. This may be the first race out with our Powersource Transportation Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman Vette, but this will be my fourth weekend in a row and the seventh race Snyder Motorsports has attended already this year.” Snyder continued, “Normally, we spend the cold months focused on the Orange Menace and improving our ET. This off-season, we have been concentrating more on new products and customer ET’s: it seems to be a winning combination. We decided to let the shoe polish do the work on our top qualifying Powersource Transportation ride.”
Snyder Motorsports is happy to announce the addition of a new associate sponsor for 2016. HotRod Tracker has come on board to promote their new GPS tracking device and safe driving solution that utilizes Verizon Wireless’s award-winning nationwide network. HotRod Tracker has combined their years of industry expertise with innovative technology to deliver the most robust automotive tracking and safe driving solution in the marketplace, and Snyder Motorsports is thrilled to have them on board with our innovative ride. “I’m excited to see this new relationship with HotRod Tracker grow, “ Snyder Exclaimed. “They are a great company with even better people behind it.”
“We are lucky to have a bunch of great companies that support our Team. Barb and her Team at Powersource Transportation have been with us for ten seasons now. I am honored to be the fastest mover in the power-only trucking fleet. It is humbling to think that many of these people and companies that support our team have been with us for the better part of 15 and even 20 years. Mark at Flatout Gaskets has been with us since our Junior Dragster days. The same is true for Mike and Jules at R&R Racing Products. Obviously, Rick at Snyder Auto has been here since the beginning and even worked on the Alcohol Funny Car crew back in the day. Gary at Lenco Racing Transmissions has been an instrumental part of our racing and business success. The same can be said for Jason at Coan Engineering; it’s hard to believe fifteen years ago we started what would now be the industry standard: Blown Alcohol Hemis with Converters. VP Racing Fuels, Jason and our team have had the most interesting relationship over the years, but that has only made it stronger. ” Snyder continued, “I know this is getting a little long winded, but these are the people that keep this championship team on the track. My “big three” are the industry leaders and have been with us for about 10 years: Tom with Lucas Oil, Sean with JE Pistons and Kris with NGK Spark Plugs. Those three are the best in their respected niches without question. Our new supercharged, electronic fuel injection combination brought with it some innovative companies with great people: Bub and Steve at Aeromotive Fuel Systems, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management and Ryan at Mick’s Performance. Last and certainly not least, Dave at Visner Engine Development and our VED Hemi Heads which have really perked up our combination and a few others. We truly have one of the best groups in drag racing.”
“This marks my 24th season behind the wheel of a drag car. I can’t wait to get this season started. I have a feeling this is going to be the most exciting year yet for Snyder Motorsports and our Parts Pedalin’ Team,” Snyder smiled. The first of 2 rounds of qualifying for the PDRA Spring Nationals begins on Friday at 9:30 AM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with a third and final chance to make the 16 car field beginning at 9:00 AM and final eliminations begin at 3 PM.
