Thacker Looking Forward to Gatornationals

The Rapid Transit Race Team will open their National event schedule this weekend in Gainesville, Florida at the infamous Gatornationals. The last time the Team had their Knoll Gas - TORCO Racing Fuels Top Alcohol Dragster on a nationally event prepped track, they ran some of the quickest passes ever by the blown alcohol combination. This weekend they are hoping to have more of the same success.

"We haven't had the kind of start to the season we were hoping for, but we feel we are making progress. This car has the ability to run well; we have shown that in the past. We just raced here a few weeks ago at the divisional event and we know the track will be prepped even better this weekend. The weather is supposed to be good so we are looking forward to running some good numbers," said Thacker.

Just two events into a 16 race season, the two time divisional champs are coming off a semi-final finish at the Gainesville divisional event. With a good showing this weekend, the team is hoping to jump up into the Top 10 of the Lucas Oil National points standings.

"When you are from the Midwest it is always nice to get out of the cold weather and come to Florida racing. The fans here really love the sport of drag racing. Hopefully, we will be able to lay down some good passes this weekend for them and go some rounds for Evan, Latrell, and all the rest of the people behind us at Knoll Gas -- TORCO Racing Fuels."
