Snyder Victorious at Delayed Dragstock

For the final stop on the Inaugural 2014 Professional Drag Racers Association Tour, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team headed to Virginia Motorsports Park for a double header. Last month rain postponed the PDRA Dragstock XI race at Rockingham Dragway, and that race was to be finished during the Championship Finals on October 10 and 11. What started as a two day event turned into a soaked and soggy five day marathon. Nevertheless, the Snyder Motorsports crew left with new personal records (3.580 et and 212.90 mph), a 4 th place finish in the championship points chase and a Dragstock XI title. The victory marked their first win of the 2014 season and the team’s third final round in just eight races.

“Dragstock is our big one. It’s our Indy or Daytona. It’s the oldest organized race in the eighth mile doorslamming history books, so to win Dragstock is a huge deal. This was our third final of the year, so to finally close the deal felt great. It seems like our season has been all or nothing, filled with either first round heartbreakers or final rounds,” exclaimed Snyder. “It takes a lot to run a team at this level and to do it successfully. We are just excited to get this win for all the great companies that support our racing program. Virginia has always been a good track for us, and we usually finish the season off strong. Our sponsors’ support, this track and our strong finishes proved to be the trifecta for our team needed.”

“Ending the season on a high note makes you even more excited to start planning out next season. We have a lot of things in the works for next year for both us and our customers. We are working hard adding new products, new lines and perfecting current products. We should have some more power out of our Snyder Motorsports’ Hemi and engine components, some new ideas in the Snyder Motorsports Lencodrive/ Snyder-ized Coan Converter combo and a little more weight off the old 63 Powersource Transportation Corvette. We are really looking forward to the 2015 PDRA Season,” proclaimed Snyder.

“I am blessed to be able to race with my family. We are an efficient machine between rounds. Everyone has their jobs to do and does them well. We even had the kids there this weekend and they were helping.” Snyder concluded, “One of my customers from Australia, Johnny, came to the race with his family and commented on our crews’ performance. I am lucky to have them and need to thank them for all they do for Snyder Motorsports and me personally: my dad and crew chief, Larry; my mom, Bev; my wife, Lindsey; might as well be my brother, Scotty Vandenburg and my kids, Madilynn, Briar and Cam. I also can’t thank Skip and Barb Bakos and the office at Powersource Transportation enough for all they do for our team. We have so many people and companies that support this operation and the list gets longer every year. It is amazing what we can all accomplish together.”

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

Snyder Looking for More Memories at VMP

Mick Snyder, the 2012 Pro Extreme World Champion, and the Snyder Motorsports crew are looking forward to an action packed weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park for the final stop on the 2014 Professional Drag Racers Association Tour. The PDRA World Finals on October 10 th and 11 th turned into a double header after Dragstock XI at Rockingham Dragway got rained out last month. Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Corvette was victorious during the first round of eliminations, so qualifying for the World Finals will double as the remainder of eliminations for Dragstock. This weekend has a lot riding on it as a quarter of the year’s rounds will be decided in Virginia this weekend at the World Finals. The Powersource Transportation Team currently sits fourth in the Championship Points Standings.

“This is a big weekend for every racer, spectator, owner and sponsor of the PDRA. This is our final stop to end out a great inaugural season. There are a lot of points up for grabs. There are season champions and two race champions to be crowned. The air should be good enough for some great numbers,” Snyder explained. “I am eager to get back out there making laps and fine tuning some of the gains we made in Rockingham. We are always testing a few ideas and they seem to be working. It is always exciting to try something that has never been done before and see it produce dividends.”

“ Virginia has been a really good track for us. I made my professional door car debut here back in 2010. We have had a few finals here over the years. This was also the last win on our back-to-back-to-back winning streak in 2012. That race is probably one of my most cherished victories. We won the race on a hole shot, which doesn’t happen very often in my camp. I like to think that is because our car is so quick. Even more important, we had all three of the kids there, so it was a great winner’s circle. To see our kids’ faces as the fans cheered us in the winner’s circle was priceless. I would love to see that look on their faces again this weekend. My youngest keeps telling us we are going to win. I hope he is right”

The first round of professional qualifying for the World Finals begins on Friday at 10:00 AM. Virginia qualifying and elimination rounds of Dragstock continue on Friday with 2 more rounds of qualifying/eliminations. Friday should end with the finals and crowning of a Dragstock XI Champion. Saturday will start with the final chance to make the 16 car field beginning at 10:00 AM. Saturday will also hold final eliminations for the PDRA World Finals starting at 2:00 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.pdra660.com.

Snyder Looking for Another Rock Solid Finish

As the Professional Drag Racers Association heads back to the birth place of the exciting 1/8 th mile door slamming series, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team roll in to Rockingham Dragway excited for the most prestigious race on the 2014 PDRA Tour. Earlier this season, the Snyder Motorsports Crew, the 2012 Pro Extreme World Champions, had an impressive runner up finish during the Spring Open at Rockingham Dragway. Planning to build on the performance gains of the last two races and the success earlier this season at The Rock, Snyder hopes to use this deadly combo to hoist the Dragstock XI trophy in Victory Circle on Sunday.

“We have made some major performance gains in the last two races. Unfortunately, the driver has let the team down with a couple hole shot losses, which from a driver’s stand point, to be honest, sucks. But, it makes you that much more hungry, too. I am excited to get to The Rock and Dragstock and prove something.” Snyder Continued, “Dragstock is the biggest race of the year for the PDRA. This is our big one: our Indy 500, our Daytona, our US Nationals. This is the one we claim saves a bad season or makes a good one even sweeter. We are hoping to sweeten our season from the Winner’s Circle this weekend.”

With just two races left, Snyder is looking ahead for end of the year advantages and to the future. “We have a lot of irons in the fire right now. Snyder Motorsports is busier than ever building transmissions and engines, sending out parts and consulting customers. We are always trying to improve and to push the limits without hurting parts. With that said, we are working on some major new projects to get tested before the end of the year. We should see some real changes in the next couple races,” claimed Snyder.

The first round of professional qualifying for Dragstock begins on Friday at 6 PM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with 3 more chances to make the 16 car field beginning at 11 AM. Sunday eliminations begin at 10 AM. For free event tickets, up to date race results and live video visit the PDRA website at www.pdra660.com

Snyder Looking for More Than OK in Tulsa

Mick Snyder, former Pro Extreme World Champion, and the Snyder Motorsports Crew are geared up for the next stop on the exciting 1/8 th mile door slamming PDRA, Pro Drag Racers Association, Tour. The Powersource Transportation Pro Extreme Team is hauling to the PDRA Under the Lights on August 15 th and 16 th in Tulsa, OK at Tulsa Motorsports Park. The Team is looking to break out of a mid season slump and the late night schedule might be just the thing to do it.

“The last race at Virginia had some great positives and a negative. The changes we made for the US Drags to the combo are working and show great promise. We qualified in the top half and out ran our competition in the opening round. Unfortunately, the easiest and cheapest part of the car to fix was a little tardy. The Crew told me not to do that again, so we should be good now,” Snyder joked.

“For the first time this season, we are heading to the track with the same combo that left the last track. We are eager to fine tune and build on these ideas.” Snyder continued, “But, we still have some new stuff for this race. We have been traveling around the US and Canada racing on tour for almost 20 years now, and we have never been to Tulsa Motorsports Park. The Powersource Transportation Crew is excited to see a different facility and try out this unique late night program. Our Team has been known to stay up a little late, so this schedule might work to our advantage.”

The first of three rounds of professional qualifying for the Under the Lights begins on Friday at 6:00 PM. Saturday holds final eliminations beginning at 6:00 PM with Pre Race Ceremonies.  For up to date information please log onto www.pdra660.com.

Snyder Hoping Virginia is for Winners at the US Drags

The fifth race takes Snyder Motorsports’ Powersource Transportation Pro Extreme Team to the US Drags on July 25 th and 26 th in Richmond, VA at Virginia Motorsports Park. Snyder is second in the championship point’s standings at the midway point and is hoping for a little Virginia is for Winners this weekend.

“We had a rough go at the last race, the Summer Drags. We hurt a motor in the last qualifying shot and that put us behind the eight ball for first round. Our Powersource Transportation Team with some help from the Higg crew and a few rain drops did a great job getting the engine changed in time, but it just wasn’t enough.” Snyder continued, “It was a tough loss at the home track, but that is drag racing. We have a new combo for this race and we are hoping this will get us back to our early season winning ways.” Snyder and the Powersource Transportation crew started the year off with two final round appearances.

“We have always done well at this track. I think we have been to the finals two or three times with the Orange Vette in Virginia. We just need to get back in the Winner’s Circle this weekend if we hope to make a run at the PDRA Championship.” Snyder joked, “With such a short season, every race is critical. We are in the second best position right now. We just want to move up one spot. It sounds so simple.”

The first round of professional qualifying for the US Drags begins on Friday at 4:30 PM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with 1 more chance to make the 16 car field beginning at noon. Saturday also has final eliminations beginning at 4:30 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.pdra660.com.

There is always a little extra pressure when you are close to home,” Snyder joked. “As always, we have been working hard at the shop getting our customers geared up for this race, but we have also made a lot of changes to our Powersource Transportation Corvette since the last stop. We are really excited to get on the track and see what we can do.”

“We have had a lot of success here with the Funny Car at their Thunder Nationals, but have always come up short with the door car. We are looking to go the distance and get the win this time.” Snyder continued, “Martin is also the closest race for some of our longest running supporters.

Snyder Takes a Not So Graceful Exit in Memphis

For the third race of the PDRA, Professional Drag Racers Association, inaugural season, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team hauled to Memphis International Raceway for the Memphis Drags. This heated event produced some great competition, a tricky track and a quarterfinal finish for the Snyder Motorsports 1963 Corvette. The early exit for Snyder and the team was the first of this season, which has had 2 final round appearances already.

After three qualifying shots, the Powersource Transportation Pro Extreme Corvette found itself in the lucky but disappointing 13 th spot. “We failed to capitalize on the Friday night shot, which had the best air and the coolest conditions. That put us a little behind the eight ball.” Snyder continued, “We had a great car with lots of new found power, but our qualifying didn’t really show that.”

Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team pulled it together and ran their best pass of the weekend with a 3.650 at just over 210 mph for the first round win. Second round, however exciting, was not the victorious result the team was wanting. “I took out a cone. It has been a long time since I collected a cone. This weekend has been a lot of fun from the driver’s seat, but it wasn’t a real quick or successful weekend for our team,” said a smiling Snyder. “Our 63 Vette was a handful the majority of the passes this weekend, but we will get her fixed up, calmed down and ready for more success at the next one.”

“ Memphis was one of those drag racing weekends where we learned a lot and made a lot of progress from a performance stand point, but didn’t have a lot of success on paper or round wins to prove it. We learned a lot this weekend and have a direction to go. This car is only going to get faster. I’m excited to make some changes and get to the next race,” exclaimed Snyder. The next event on the PDRA Schedule is the Summer Drags on June 26-28 at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI. For free event tickets visit the PDRA website at www.pdra660.com

No Blues as Snyder and Powersource Transportation Haul into Memphis

Memphis may be known for their blues beat, but Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team are singing a happier tune. Snyder motors into Memphis International Raceway for the Inaugural PDRA Memphis Drags this Memorial Day weekend. Snyder has some momentum heading into the third race of the 2014 PDRA, Professional Drag Racers Association, Tour. With two runner-up finishes under their belts and a second place spot in the championship points, the Snyder Motorsports Team likes where they stand.

“It was a great weekend for the Powersource Transportation Team at the Georgia Drags. We left there with another runner-up. We would have liked to win the race, especially with it being Mother’s Day and all the kids there.” Snyder continued, “But, there were 14 other cars in the race that would have loved to just be in the finals, so you really can’t complain. This is a great start to the season.”

The Snyder Motorsports Team heads into the Memphis Drags trying to build on the last race. “We are always testing a few ideas, and the car seemed to like the direction we were going in Georgia. So, we worked an incredible amount of hours the last week and a half fine turning those ideas and getting customer projects out the door. We are excited to get to the track and see the fruits of our labor,” said an exhausted Snyder.

The first round of professional qualifying for the Memphis Drags begins on Friday at 3:30 PM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with 1 more chance to make the 16 car field beginning at 11 AM. Saturday also has final eliminations beginning at 3 PM. For free event tickets, up to date race results and live video visit the PDRA website at www.pdra660.com

Winner’s Circle on Snyder’s Mind at the Georgia Drags

After a great runner-up showing in Rockingham at the first Pro Drag Racers Association race, Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports Pro Extreme Team sponsored by Powersource Transportation is ready for the next stop on the exciting 1/8 th mile door slamming tour. The Georgia Drags on May 9 and 10 at South Georgia Motorsports Park makes up the second stop on the on the 8 race 2014 PDRA National Event Tour. The Team has been burning the midnight oil to get ready for the race.

“ Snyder Motorsports has been running at a feverish pace since the last race. Business is good and that’s always a great thing. We finished 4 Hemi engines in the last 9 days, with new builds and rebuilds. Add in a couple Lencodrives, a few Snyder-ized Coan Converters and an NHRA Divisional with some of our Top Alcohol, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman customers since Rockingham, it has been hectic to say the least.” Snyder continued, “One of the new engines is for our Powersource Transportation Orange Menace, we are excited to get her to Georgia and see what it can do.”

The Snyder Motorsports Team is eager to get back to South Georgia Motorsports Park. “We have been coming to SGMP for quite a few seasons, with quite a few different organizations and even a few different race cars,” Snyder joked. “We have had great successes and unfortunately some setbacks here. It feels like a southern home track for us we have raced here so much. Hopefully, that will work to our advantage. We won here with the Alky Funny Car back in the mid 2000’s; it would be nice to do it again with the Powersource Transportation Corvette.”

The first round of professional qualifying for the Georgia Drags begins on Friday at 3:30 PM. Qualifying continues on Saturday with 1 more chance to make the 16 car field beginning at 11 AM. Saturday also has final eliminations beginning at 3 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.pdra660.com.

Snyder Starts Season Rock Solid with Final Round Finish
Runs Career Best ET and MPH Numbers

For the historic first race of the PDRA, Professional Drag Racers Association, inaugural season, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team traveled to Rockingham Dragway for the Spring Open. This record shattering event produced career bests, national records and some very tight fields. It proved to be a great event for both the new series and the Snyder Motorsports Team.

After four solid passes, the Powersource Transportation Pro Extreme Corvette ran a career best 3.588 at 211.25 on its way to an impressive fourth qualifying spot in the historic field. Snyder proved consistency wins rounds with a 3.602 and 3.601 to win the first two rounds of competition. In the semis, Snyder slowed to an engine hurting 3.64 but the win light was still in his lane. After a thrash to make the finals, Snyder fell victim to a failing electrical relay that would not allow him to put the Powersource Corvette in forward gear after backing up from the burnout.

“It was a great weekend over all for the Powersource Transportation Team. We leave here with our quickest and fastest pass and our best 60 foot ever. We have our race car back.” Snyder continued, “We also made it to the finals and got a runner up. It was disappointing not being able to stage after the burnout, but that’s racing. We had a lot of help getting the car back together for the finals. I can not say enough about my crew and the help from Larry Higginbottham and his crew.”

“We learned a lot this weekend and have a direction to go with all the new ideas. This car is only going to get quicker. I’m excited to make some changes and get to the next race,” exclaimed Snyder. The next event on the PDRA Schedule is the Georgia Drags on May 9-10 at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, GA. For free event tickets visit the PDRA website at www.pdra660.com
