LAS VEGAS – The supercharged and nitrous injected Pro Mods are set to race down The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway July 28-29. The high-horsepower machines are full-bodied, self-starting cars that can reach speeds exceeding 220 mph in less than 6.5 seconds on a quarter-mile dragstrip. Pro Mod cars run either 526 c.i.d. engines with superchargers or 710 c.i.d. nitrous injected engines with carburetors or fuel injection. Pro Mod cars have the choice of gasoline or alcohol for fuel. The event will feature top Pro Mod competitors such as the current series points leader Danny Rowe, John Scialpi, Wayne Torkelson Jr. and Las Vegan Richard Cross. “There is nothing like Pro Mod racing,” Torkelson Jr. said. “Hearing the noise of the supercharged cars and the huge engines of the nitrous injected cars side-by-side really sets Pro Mod racing apart from other types of drag racing.” Race fans will have the opportunity to see two incredible nights of Pro Mod action as the ultra-fast machines qualify on Friday evening. In addition to a full weekend of Pro Mod racing, The Strip also will host Friday Night Drags and round six of the Summit Racing E.T. Bracket Series presented by National Performance Center.
