Thacker Ready for Brainerd
The Rapid Transit Race Team sponsored by Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels has been to 2 straight final rounds and they are hoping the momentum will carry over to the Brainerd National event this weekend as they look for their 3rd win of the season. Driver Marty Thacker and the Team had a busy week off and they are ready to get back out on the track with their blown alcohol Top Alcohol Dragster.
"This week we have a brand new motor in the car. We tried a few things when we were building it and we aren't sure if they will work, but we are excited to test it out. We have been trying to get more out of our combination all year and typically Brainerd is one of the faster tracks we go to during the season, so this should be the perfect place to see how well this car can perform," said Thacker.
The two time divisional championship Team is currently sitting in third in the National points standings and they are looking to move up this weekend. After back-to-back final rounds in the Indy and Columbus divisional events the Team feels like they have turned a corner on their season and they are ready to put on a show for the Brainerd fans.
"This race is unlike any we go to all year. The track is good and the fans unlike any on the NHRA circuit. Hopefully, we can go out there and make some good runs during qualifying so that we can go out to the zoo and enjoy ourselves and spend some time with the fans that come out to watch us every year."
