Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team Head to Texas
Snyder Signs JE Pistons and Lucas Oil for 2014

For the 8th and final race on the American Drag Racing League Tour, Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports Race Team head to Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX for the ADRL World Finals IX on October 18 and 19. Snyder , the 2012 ADRL Pro Extreme World Champion, is currently sitting 6 th in the championship points standings. After a tough loss during the second round at Dragstock X in Rockingham, NC, Snyder and the Team are looking to step up their performance this weekend and try some new things they can carry into next season.

“While the 2013 Championship is out of reach at this point, we are looking forward to next year for both our team and our customers.” Snyder continued, “We have made a lot of changes for this race. We are testing new parts and ideas looking to gain a performance advantage at Houston and give us a direction for the future. We always seem to do well at the end of the season and we hope this year is no different. I want to get this hot rod in the Winner’s Circle while the 1 is still on the window for Skip, Barb and Powersource Transportation.”

Snyder and the Team are also thrilled to announce Lucas Oil and JE Pistons will be back on board for next year. Snyder added, “We have worked hard over the last month preparing the car and working on sponsorship deals. These Pro Extreme cars take a great deal to keep going. I can’t tell you how lucky we are to work with outstanding companies like Lucas Oil and JE Pistons.” Snyder emphasized, “I am proud to be associated and to have JE on the hood and Lucas on the side of our car. It means a lot when companies like this show their support year after year.”

Professional qualifying for the event begins on Friday at 5:30 and continues throughout the night. Qualifying continues into Saturday morning with eliminations that afternoon.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com.

Snyder Qualifies 5th for the Speedtech Battle of the Belts
Quarter Final Finish for the Powersource Transportation Team

For the 6th race on the American Drag Racing League Tour, Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports Team stopped at Memphis International Raceway for the Memphis Drags IV.  The event marked the last race to earn a spot on the ADRL’s Battle of the Belts ladder and made a good showing here even more important for all the competitors.

After two rounds of qualifying on Friday and one on Saturday, Snyder, the 2012 Pro Extreme World Champion, put his 1963 Powersource Transportation Corvette in the 11th spot with a 3.67 at 207 mph.  The bottom half of the field is not something Snyder is accustomed to, but after putting a new setup in the Pro Extreme car for this race it was starting to show some promise.  Once the smoke had cleared on the first round of eliminations Saturday, Snyder and the Team had the win light flashing in their lane with a 3.65 at 207 mph.  In the second round on Sunday morning, Snyder threw away the quicker pass with a red light, running 3.66 in the losing effort.

“It was a good race in Memphis for the Powersource Transportation Team overall.  We would have liked to go a few more rounds and put Vivian in the Winner’s Circle, but it wasn’t our day.”  Snyder continued, “We changed a few things this weekend trying to get ready for the Battle of the Belts in Rockingham, and we think we have a better direction for the car now.  We leave here less than 4 rounds out of first and with a better handle on the car.  I’m excited to get to the next race.”

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, R & R Racing Products, JE Pistons, Flatout Gaskets, NGK, Lucas Oil, Snyder Auto, VP Racing Fuels, PSI Springs, Long Printing and Goodson for their continued support this year.

Snyder Ready for Virginia

Defending event champ Mick Snyder will be at Virginia Motorsports Park this weekend to continue his 2012 Pro Extreme title defense in the 4th ADRL event of the season.  The Snyder Motorsports Race Team sponsored by Powersource Transportation is sitting in 3rd place in the points standings, less than one round out of 1st, after a good showing in Cordova, Illinois a few weeks ago. 

“The car ran well at the last event, we just got beat in a good close race.  I am looking forward to seeing if we can come out on the other end of that this weekend,” said the 2010 Rookie of the Year. 

Snyder qualified #3 in Cordova with a 3.69 on a tricky racing service.  He advanced to the second round with a 3.73, but a 3.71 just wasn’t quite enough to overtake his opponent losing by just 5 feet at the stripe. 

“Last year we got the Powersource car in the Winner’s Circle here and we would love to do it again this year.  With the points as close as they are, a win here would put us right where we want to be halfway thru the season.”  

Qualifying for the event begins on Saturday morning and continues throughout the day, with eliminations on Sunday.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com.  

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, R & R Racing Products, Flatout Gaskets, NGK, Lucas Oil, Snyder Auto, VP Racing Fuels, JE Pistons, PSI Springs, Long Printing, Goodson and Jeg’s  for their continued support this year.

Snyder Continues Title Defense in Cordova

Reigning Pro Extreme World Champion Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports Race Team head to Cordova, Illinois this weekend to continue their title defense.  Snyder who runnered-up at the first ADRL event in Rockingham earlier this year is looking to better that finish this weekend. 

“We haven’t been running quite as well as we want yet this year, but hopefully some of the changes that we made over the last few weeks have fixed our issue.  We have been racing here for years and I really like Cordova so it will be nice to get this Powersource Transportation Corvette back out on the track,” said Snyder.

Snyder and the Team are no strangers to winning at this track, in fact his first ever pro win came at the facility in 2000 when he was racing in the Pro Outlaw class. 

“We have raced everything from Jrs, to IHRA, to the Top Alcohol Funny Car there.  It is one of the few tracks that seems to keep changing with us.  Hopefully, at the end of the day on Sunday we will be hoisting the trophy with our first win of the 2013 season.”

Qualifying for the event begins on Saturday morning and continues throughout the day, with eliminations on Sunday.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, Coan Engineering, R & R Racing Products, JE Pistons, Lucas Oil, NGK Spark Plugs, Flatout Gaskets, VP Racing Fuels, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen, PSI Springs, Long Printing and Goodson for their continued support this year.
