ATI’s Chris Rini wins Pro Mod Race at Darlington Dragway!
Chris Rini started off his 2020 race season with a win at the Carolina Xtreme Pro Mod race at Darlington Dragway running an ATI Transmission, Outlaw Converter®, Super Fsynthetic ATF, Super Plate and Super Damper. Despite a rain shortened test session, Chris was able to get the car dialed in and qualifed #1 with a conservative 3.732 @ 198.70 and took best ET of the event with a 3.672 @ 204.86! “We made it to the finals with a little bit of luck recovering from tire shake better than our competitor. For the finals we took power out of it and played the safe card to get the car down a 62 degree race track and it worked to our advantage”, Rini said. “Considering the lack of ideal conditions we ended up qualifying #1 and winning the race. This success is due to my whole team and all the sponsors that support me.”
