Rob Atchison and the PRIDE Fighting Championship Funny Car head towards Michigan looking for a brawl.
London, Ontario - Rob Atchison is getting it done this season as he continues to qualify at every event thus far. Atchison is only in his forth season of professional competition but he has been displaying signs of an experienced veteran at various points of the year with his reaction times and tuning abilities.
Campaigning pretty much the only Chevy- powered car in the class has its advantages and disadvantages. The research and development is collected with each and every pass as opposed to years of data to fall back on like the Hemi-powered counter parts. Atchison has shown promise so far with his strong qualifying capabilities.
The whole team continues to shine with a Best Appearing in Shreveport, Louisiana; 100% event qualifying, several round wins, currently in the top ten in IHRA World Championship points and a runner up finish at the famed Can-Am Nationals this past June in Canada.
Atchison is going to Michigan this weekend looking for that elusive first win of the season. "We are definitely heading to this race with winning on our minds. We qualified very well in New York and proved we have a hot weather tune up. Now is the time for us to win some more rounds of eliminations. We go to every race wanting a win and this one is no different. Competition has been heavy this year and we will not be defeated without a fight and giving it our all. PRIDE FC, Erickson Manufacturing and West Coast Transportation have been fantastic support and we are looking to take them to the winner's circle." stated Rob Atchison.
Atchison Racing also launched their new website so fans can see the team, check out photos and follow along during the season. Visit Rob and the crew at www.atchisonracing.com.
