Thanks Curtis Reese Jr for great Video!

Jason Michalak put his brand new blown drag radial Corvette into the winners circle at the inaugural Radial Tire Racing Association race at Northstar Dragway. Not only did the Bad9er team win, they consistently laid down 4.0X passes throughout eliminations making him one tough Ombre to beat. Not bad for the second race out on the new car and combination!

Team Bad9er’s best pass in the Vette was during Round #3 with a 4.0020@191.65 – ooohhh so close to breaking into the threes. The Vette proved more than what Teammate Kyle Huettel could handle in the final round where Jason defeated him 4.0112@191.25 to a 5.50@85.94 very off pace pass by Kyle.

Congratulations Jason & Dream Team Members Billy Stocklin and Frankie Taylor on your big win, and to Kyle on the R/U!!!

Travis Thomason struck gold at Northstar running the Limited 275 class. Travis, AKA “Quaz” ran the table, he qualified #1 with a 4.8753@142.9, then backed that up with a 4.8792 in the 1st round which should make him the offical RTRA Limited 275 record holder.

In the final Travis defeated Bill Gibbs when he chopped the tree down on him and laid down a quick 4.9253 over Gibbs 5.134@136.70

We also want to congratulate Rick Thornton / Fast Forward Innovations & Team G-Mac who ran a very stout 4.05@190 at this race.
