(04-14-2014) Mechanicsville, MD – Dwayne Wolfe and Team Wolfe had their 02’ Jan-Cen powered Firebird Pro Mod ready for action and proved it with an impressive win at the Door Wars at Maryland International Raceway this past weekend with a 6.02, 6.02, 6.00 and a 6.01 in the finals.
Conditions were favorable for some fast ET’s, and with two days of beautiful weather forecasted, 24 teams prepared for qualifications after a brutally long winter off. Many of the teams struggled to get a handle on the track, but by the final qualifier many of the teams where ready for eliminations.
“MIR is such a great track to race,” Dwayne Wolfe said. “The Wolfe Racing Pro Mod was working perfectly. Royce Miller, his Family and all the staff at MIR took care of all the racers, and prepped the track perfectly.
“Many of the teams had personal bests. That’s a testament to the track prep and great conditions,” states John Mazzorana NEOPMA President. “Also this past weekend we introduced new smartphone technology by Action Audio Apps that brings drag racing to listeners throughout the world, and it went very well for the first time broadcasting a drag racing event. We also would like to thank Royce Miller and family and all our sponsors for their support.”
With the win, Dwayne Wolfe assumes first place in points, with 2013 Champion Gary Courtier in second just one round win behind.
The NEOPMA Pro Mod Series continues with the 36th Annual Mountain Motor Nationals, May 9th and 10th at Maryland International Raceway.
