Mick Snyder NHRA Earlville Post Race
Snyder on Top After Earlville
Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team headed to Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, IA for their final race of the season, the NHRA Division 5 Finals. The 5-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman combination fought a tricky track all weekend, but the team managed to pull off numbers that qualified them at the top of the 32-car field. During final eliminations, the driver left too quick and turned on the red light after a first round victory. While the team was unable to capture another little Wally, it was still a successful weekend as the Snyder Motorsports Team gained some more divisional points and retained the top spot in the NHRA NorthwCentral Top Sportsman Points Standings.
“We have had a heck of a season. Time will tell if we stay on top for the Division Championship, but either way it has been a great year for our Powersource Transportation Team. We qualified number one at seven of our nine races and won two races in two different organizations from the number one spot. We couldn’t be more pleased with the way this Supercharged, ComSyncEFI combination has performed. We bracket raced eighth and quarter mile with some of the toughest guys in the country and were competitive. All while pushing buttons letting the driver shift the Lencodrive,” Snyder smiled.
After two qualifying shots, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran an off pace but good enough 6.441 seconds and 221.92 miles per hour to put them first on the qualifying sheet. Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a tire shaking 6.334 at 228.89 mph effort. In the second round, the Powersource Transportation Corvette had a smooth 6.360 at 226.14 effort, but Snyder left .003 too soon and turned on the red light for the loss.
