Snyder Back in Session at St. Louis
Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team’s season, like school, is back in session after a month and a half of summer off. The Snyder Motorsports’ Crew is “fresh off” their victory at the PDRA Summer Drags in Martin, MI and is excited to get the second half of their Top Sportsman season rolling. The 5-time Season Champs are headed back to Gateway Motorsports Park for the NHRA Division 3 All-American Hot Rod Showdown. Just one year ago at this same event, Snyder made history with the début of his Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Equipped Hemi Combination, which has been quite successful mounting up multiple wins and numerous top qualifying positions. The All-American Hot Rod Showdown runs from August 5th through the 6th and will feature jet cars, a classic hot rod car show and fireworks display.
“Thank goodness! Our little summer break is over. I love racing this Powersource Transportation Vette and I miss pushing the shift buttons on my Lencodrive,” Snyder laughed. “I like this track and this race. We have had success here in the past with both the Funny Car and the Pro Extreme Door Car. We unveiled the Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Engine Management here last year and went straight to the top of the qualifying sheet. Not to mention, it’s a night race and it’s a challenging race for the tuners with the extreme heat that August brings to the Midwest. It’s just a neat divisional that has a lot of excitement going on. Hopefully when all the excitement has subsided, we will have a little Wally to add to the collection.”
As Snyder looks for another win at Gateway, the first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA All-American Hot Rod Showdown begins on Friday at 4:00 PM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with one more chance to make the 32-car field at noon with final eliminations to begin at 4:00 PM. For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com
