ROWE RACES PAST TROXEL FOR NHRA GET SCREENED AMERICA PRO MOD WIN IN HOUSTON

BAYTOWN, Texas -- Danny Rowe raced past Funny Car driver Melanie Troxel to earn the win at the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series event at Houston Raceway Park.

Rowe powered his 1968 Supercharged Chevy Camaro to a 5.936-second run at 248.93 mph, just enough to get past Troxel in her '63 Corvette and earn his first win in the inaugural series. Rowe won last season at Houston Raceway Park in the Pro Mod exhibition series.

It wasn't any easy win, by any means for Rowe, who qualified third for the event. Rowe drove past Pro Mod drivers Chip King, Mike Castellana, Joe Baker, and Troxel in the final round to earn the win.

Troxel made it to her first final round appearance in the category after qualifying in the 16th and final spot in the field Saturday afternoon.

The NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Series continues April 30-May 2 at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill.
