Snyder Ready to Return to Atlanta
Mick Snyder and the Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels/Powersource Transportation sponsored Top Alcohol Funny Car are headed down to Atlanta this weekend for the first time in a couple of years. However, this is the second trip to Georgia in a few weeks. Once the Indianapolis divisional got postponed, the Team made the trip down to Valdosta for the division 2 event. After qualifying #1 the race was postponed due to wind and rescheduled for May 12th.
"We are excited to get back out there and race. After the Indy divisional got postponed, we went down to Valdosta and that got postponed after qualifying ,so we haven't been in a round of competition since Gainesville. We have some great sponsors behind this car in Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels and Powersource Transportation and we would like nothing better than to get them in the winner's circle, but first we will have to get to eliminations," said Snyder.
The defending Division 3 championship team sponsored by Knoll-Gas Torco Racing Fuels and Powersource Transportation has been a top 10 finisher in the National points standings since their first full season of competition 3 years ago. They are hoping this race will put them further toward that same goal this season.
"We have been working real hard to get this car to where we think it needs to be. Dad and I made so many changes since last year that it is almost like having a whole new race car. We learn so much each time we take the car out and one day it is going to all come together. Hopefully, that will be this weekend."
The Team will have 2 qualifying shots on Friday at 2 PM and 5:30 PM. Their final attempt will come on Saturday at 1:30 PM. First round of eliminations will be at 4:30 Saturday evening and continue following the first round of pro eliminations Sunday morning.
