PAT MUSI GRABS FIRST NHRA NATIONAL WIN IN PRO MOD AT NORWALK

NORWALK, Ohio (June 28, 2010) -- When Pat Musi crossed the finish line and won the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series final during the NHRA's Summit Racing Equipment Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park, he wasn't entirely sure what to think.

"I couldn't even say anything, I was just speechless," said Musi. "It was good."

Musi's victory in the Pro Mod category at Norwalk was his first in NHRA national event competition and it came in his first appearance in a final round since he lost to Lee Shepherd during the 1981 Gatornationals at Gainesville, Fla.

The common thread between 1981 and his Norwalk win: Goodyear tires. Musi races on Goodyear Eagle D1230 tires and was racing on Goodyear tires in 1981. He said the size of his Goodyear Eagle D1230 tire was important to his success at Norwalk.

"We're able to stay on the tire," Musi said. "We don't have the variable of carburetors. We do the same thing every time, it will accelerate faster and we can keep it up on that big tire."
