Snyder PR Earlville NHRA Pre

Snyder on Top After Earlville

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team headed to Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, IA for their final race of the season, the NHRA Division 5 Finals.  The 5-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman combination fought a tricky track all weekend, but the team managed to pull off numbers that qualified them at the top of the 32-car field.  During final eliminations, the driver left too quick and turned on the red light after a first round victory.  While the team was unable to capture another little Wally, it was still a successful weekend as the Snyder Motorsports Team gained some more divisional points and retained the top spot in the NHRA North Central Top Sportsman Points Standings.

“We have had a heck of a season.  Time will tell if we stay on top for the Division Championship, but either way it has been a great year for our Powersource Transportation Team.  We qualified number one at seven of our nine races and won two races in two different organizations from the number one spot.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the way this Supercharged, ComSyncEFI combination has performed.  We bracket raced eighth and quarter mile with some of the toughest guys in the country and were competitive.  All while pushing buttons letting the driver shift the Lencodrive,” Snyder smiled.

After two qualifying shots, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran an off pace but good enough 6.441 seconds and 221.92 miles per hour to put them first on the qualifying sheet.  Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a tire shaking 6.334 at 228.89 mph effort.  In the second round, the Powersource Transportation Corvette had a smooth 6.360 at 226.14 effort, but Snyder left .003 too soon and turned on the red light for the loss. 

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

Snyder PR Earlville NHRA Pre

Snyder Heads West, not East

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team’s 2016 Schedule had the team heading to GALOT Motorsports Park this weekend for the PDRA Dragstock event, but after their Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman Vette was victorious at the NHRA North Central Division Finals in Bowling Green, KY a couple weeks ago the schedule has changed.  With the big W and some other strong finishes, the Snyder Motorsports team is now leading the NHRA Division 3 Top Sportsman Points Standings, so the Team is taking their Orange Menace to Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, IA for the NHRA Division 5 Finals which runs from September 9th through the 11th.  The 5-time Season Champs are looking to improve their points total with an out of division race, collect another little Wally and finish their season with another NHRA Division Championship.

“Sometimes even the best plans change.  I guess that is why our Powersource Transportation Schedule says ‘Subject to Change’ at the bottom,” Snyder smiled.  “Kind of funny but before the season started, the plan was to not chase points.  We were going to hit the races that were the best for Snyder Motorsports, our sponsors and our customers.  As the season progressed, our ComSyncEFI and Lencodrive combination proved to be deadly consistent, the driver was doing his job most of the time and we were going rounds.  So when the possibility of another Division 3 Championship surfaced, the plans changed.  It’s definitely a nice problem to have.  Our car is running so well right now; it’s a lot of fun to drive.  If we can keep the ole’ girl going rounds, it will make it really hard for the rest of the guys in D3 to catch us.” 

“We have been to Earlville a couple times with the funny car chasing points almost ten years ago.  It is a really neat track: all concrete surface, tractor rides, the fans can see the whole track as they sit on a hill and a really innovative water box.  It’s just down the street from the farm where the ‘Field of Dreams’ is located, too.”  As the Snyder Team looks to keep their championship dreams going, the first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA Division 5 Finals begins on Friday at 2:00 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with one more chance to make the 32-car field at 11:00 AM with first round of eliminations to follow.  The final four rounds of eliminations will be run on Sunday with a start time of 9:00 AM.   For up to date results please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder: A Day at the Beech
Number One Qualifier and the Race Win

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team took their 1963 Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Corvette to the NHRA North Central Division Finals at Beech Bend Raceway Park over the weekend.  The 5-time season champs took the top qualifying spot and the final round victory to run the table on the tough Top Sportsman field and take the little Wally back to DeMotte, IN.  With the win, the Snyder Motorsports team also took the lead in the NHRA Division 3 Top Sportsman Points Standings.

“What a weekend for the Powersource Transportation team.  We qualified one and got the win.  Putting five consistent passes together at this speed in this heat in one day is tough.  We were worn out by the end of the day, but it was worth it,” Snyder smiled.  “This Snyder Motorsports Lencodrive and ComSyncEFI combination runs flawless.  I am so happy with the performance of our car and the engine management system right now.  The weather was probably better suited for the beach, but bracket racing this door car at 230 (miles per hour) might be the most fun you can have.”

After three solid qualifying passes, the Powersource Transportation “Orange Menace” Corvette ran a best of 6.229 at 229.98 on its way to the number one qualifying spot in the tough 32 car door slamming field.  Snyder took the win in the first round of competition with a lifting 6.345 at 193.71 mph effort.  In the second round, Snyder took the win with the starting line advantage and a coasting 6.337 at 192.77.  Third round was more of the same, Snyder had a large hole shot and coasted for the win with 6.316 at 213.74.  In the semifinals, Snyder ran dead on his dial with 6.245 at 220.58 and had the tree, but didn’t get the stripe as his competitor broke out.  In the finals, Snyder motored down with a 6.214 at 220.62 to tighten up the stripe, run dead on and take the little Wally. 

“We are having a blast in Top Sportsman.  We had another weekend where everything just clicked.  The racers here are tough.  All wins are special, and this one is no different.  This Beech Bend facility is one of the most scenic in the country.  I love the rolling hills, the history and the covered bleachers.  I really like coming here.  Dallas and his family do an amazing job.  We won our last little Wally here with the Funny Car seven years ago.  It was nice to do it again.”  Snyder continued, “I am blessed to have such a great team and all family at that.  It makes the winner’s circle that much sweeter when it’s filled with family and friends.  I need to thank Jason and Mitchell (Scruggs) and Barb (Bakos) from Powersource Transportation for all they do for our team.  There are a lot of great people and companies that make what we do possible.  It feels good to give them all another win.”

“With this win and now the D3 points lead, we might change the schedule up a bit, but we have some time to figure it out.” The next event on the 2016 Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the PDRA Dragstock on September 9th and 10th at GALOT Motorsports Park or the NHRA Division 5 Finals at Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, IA the same weekend.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R&R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

Snyder Cruising to Corvette Country

Known as the Corvette capital of the World, Bowling Green will be the host for the next stop on the Snyder Motorsports’ 2016 Schedule.  This race marks the final stop on the NHRA Division 3 Schedule.  It will also be the final chance to get some quarter mile numbers out of the Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Corvette.  The 5-time Season Champs have qualified near the top of the Top Sportsman pack and have been going rounds all season.  The Powersource Transportation Team is currently in the Top 10 in both NHRA Division 3 and PDRA points.  They would like to keep the great performance going this weekend in Corvette Country.  The NHRA Lucas Oil North Central Finals at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, KY will be held on August 26th through 28th.

“It has been a heck of a season for the Powersource Transportation team.  With just two races left, it’s nice to look back on a good year.  We have been performing well, going some rounds and even managed to find the winner’s circle once.  This Supercharged, Electronic Fuel Injected combination has really proved its value in a short period of time and our Lencodrive Transmission has really finished off the package perfectly,” Snyder stated.  “This weekend, like the last few, will be another hot and muggy one.  I doubt we will see stellar numbers, but I am really excited to get out and make some quarter mile laps, peddle some Snyder parts and hang out with racing friends and customers.  It has been a few years, a couple classes and a few organizations since we have earned a little Wally, it would sure be nice to do it here at our Corvette’s ‘home’ track.”

The first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA Lucas Oil Regional begins on Friday at 3:30 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with the final 2 chances to make the 32 car field beginning at noon and 3:30 PM.  Final eliminations begin at 10:30 AM on Sunday.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Quick in Memphis

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team headed to Memphis International Raceway for the sixth race of the PDRA 2016 Tour, the Memphis Drags.  The 5-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman combination fought the heat for the second weekend in a row, but the team managed to pull off some great numbers and qualified at the top of the 16-car field.  During final eliminations, the driver left too quick and turned on the red light after a first round victory.  While the team was unable to defend their last year victory here at Memphis, it was still a successful weekend as the Snyder Motorsports Team moved into the Top 5 in the PDRA Top Sportsman National Points Standings.

“It was a pretty good weekend for the Powersource Transportation Team at Memphis.  We qualified number one in a quick field of competitive, fast rides.  We made it through first   round, but then the dang driver let us down with the old red light.  But, that’s racing.  It was a hot, muggy weekend with a few rain showers.  The air was the worst we had seen all year, and we still put up some low 3.9 passes.  We are thrilled with the way this Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Snyder Hemi is running.  Heck, we could have qualified pretty high up in Pro Boost this weekend.  This engine combination with the Lencodrive Transmission is proving to be quick and deadly consistent.  We are having a blast in Top Sportsman.  The teams that travel the PDRA circuit are a bunch of great guys.  I might be the only blown guy in the staging lanes, but they don’t seem to judge,” Snyder smiled.

During qualifying, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran an impressive 3.926 seconds and 187.94 miles per hour to put them first on the qualifying sheet.  Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a 3.973 at 186.25 mph effort.  In the second round, the Powersource Transportation Corvette had the nice package with 3.957 at 187.64, but Snyder left .013 too soon and turned on the red light for the lose.  

“We go back to the NHRA and some quarter mile action at the next one.  Bowling Green is always a fun track.  Hopefully, the weather is a little cooler than usual,” Snyder said.  The next event on the 2016 Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Regional Event on August 26th through the 28th at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

No Memphis Blues for Snyder

Memphis may be known for their blues beat, but Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team are humming a happier hymn.  The Snyder Motorsports’ Crew motors into this weekend’s event in high spirits and with high hopes.  The 5-time Season Champs have some momentum heading into their seventh event of the 2016 season as they are fresh off a PDRA win at the Summer Drags, had a strong showing at the NHRA Division 3 All-American Hot Rod Showdown last weekend, have been collecting top qualifying spots all season and are last year’s event champs at the Memphis Drags.  The Electronic Fuel Injected, Supercharged Top Sportsman Vette is looking to qualify near the top of the 16-car field and defend the event title.  The PDRA Memphis Drags at Memphis International Raceway will be held on August 12 and 13 and will feature some of the world’s fastest door slammers, as well as jet cars and a wheel stander.

“So far, it has been a heck of a year for the Powersource Transportation team.  We have really been making progress in the performance of this Supercharged, Lencodrive equipped Top Sportsman machine.  We have run some combination best numbers this season and the strides that have been made with this ComSyncEFI Engine Management in just a year is truly impressive,” Snyder stated.  “We had a lot of new going on with this combination a year ago: new heads, new manifold, new rocker arms, blower, new coil packs, electronic fuel injection and engine management, but it has all come together into a competitive package.  It’s been a just over a year and it still amazes me how neat of a deal this really is.”

“This Snyder Motorsports Team has been going rounds and catching some of the breaks you need when bracket racing at this level.  Turning on win lights is exciting, but just making another pass with this unique car is the real fun part.  Every lap gives us more data to keep making it better for us and our customers.” Snyder continued, “This second half of our season puts Snyder Motorsports at the track five out of the next six weekends and has our Powersource Transportation Top Sportsman Vette at four of those in both PDRA and NHRA. We really love being at the track, helping customers and peddlin’ parts.”

As Snyder looks for another win at Memphis, the first of 4 rounds of qualifying for the PDRA Memphis Drags begins on Friday at 11:00 AM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with one more chance to make the 16-car field at 11:00 AM with final eliminations to begin at 4:00 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Semis at St. Louis
and Takes Top Qualifying Spot

At the fifth NHRA North Central Lucas Oil Divisional of 2016, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team traveled to Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis for the NHRA All-American Hot Rod Showdown.  The 5-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman combination gained a lot of exposure and posted some near combination best numbers on their way to the Number 1 Qualifying Position in some extreme heat conditions.  During final eliminations, the team fell just short during the semifinals with a wild pass.  While the team fell short of hoisting the Wally, the weekend was not without successes.

“It was a great weekend for the Powersource Transportation Team at the Arch.  We went some rounds and kept it exciting with some unintentional stunt driving a couple passes.  We had a lot of fun this weekend, but that happens when win lights are turning your way and the family is all together.  We also made some changes to the engine program during our month and a half break, and the car seems to be a little quicker,” Snyder stated.  “Snyder Motorsports has a lot going on at the shop right now, building blown Hemi engines and Lencodrive transmissions and sending out parts to our customers.  With the next race less than a week away, it is going to be a hectic week at Snyder Motorsports.”

During qualifying, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran an impressive 6.177 seconds and 230.69 miles per hour to put them first on the qualifying sheet.  Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a lifting 6.208 at 211.63 mph effort.  In the second round, Snyder had the winning package with the hole shot and a coasting 6.171 at 222.44 to take the stripe at the quarter mile.  Snyder put together a 9 thousandths package in the quarterfinals with a perfect light and the 6.159 at 230.29 mph pass.  During the semifinals, Snyder got out of the groove for an off pace 6.203 in the losing effort.

“We go back to the PDRA, faster competition and eighth mile racing at the next one.  We will also be defending event champs, which is always a little more fun,” Snyder smiled.  The next event on the 2016 Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the PDRA Memphis Drags on August 12 and 13 at Memphis International Raceway.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

Snyder Back in Session at St. Louis

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team’s season, like school, is back in session after a month and a half of summer off.  The Snyder Motorsports’ Crew is “fresh off” their victory at the PDRA Summer Drags in Martin, MI and is excited to get the second half of their Top Sportsman season rolling.  The 5-time Season Champs are headed back to Gateway Motorsports Park for the NHRA Division 3 All-American Hot Rod Showdown.  Just one year ago at this same event, Snyder made history with the début of his Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Equipped Hemi Combination, which has been quite successful mounting up multiple wins and numerous top qualifying positions.  The All-American Hot Rod Showdown runs from August 5th through the 6th and will feature jet cars, a classic hot rod car show and fireworks display.

“Thank goodness!  Our little summer break is over.  I love racing this Powersource Transportation Vette and I miss pushing the shift buttons on my Lencodrive,” Snyder laughed.  “I like this track and this race.  We have had success here in the past with both the Funny Car and the Pro Extreme Door Car.  We unveiled the Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Engine Management here last year and went straight to the top of the qualifying sheet.  Not to mention, it’s a night race and it’s a challenging race for the tuners with the extreme heat that August brings to the Midwest.  It’s just a neat divisional that has a lot of excitement going on.  Hopefully when all the excitement has subsided, we will have a little Wally to add to the collection.”

As Snyder looks for another win at Gateway, the first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA All-American Hot Rod Showdown begins on Friday at 4:00 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with one more chance to make the 32-car field at noon with final eliminations to begin at 4:00 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Maxes Out at Martin
Takes Number One Qualifier and the Race Win

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team took their 1963 Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Corvette to the Professional Drag Racers Association’s Summer Drags at US 131 Motorsports Park over the weekend.  The race that was held just a couple hours from the Snyder Motorsports’ headquarters turned out to be a great one.  The 5-time season champs took the top qualifying spot and the final round victory to run the table on the tough Top Sportsman field and take the trophy back to DeMotte, IN.

“What a weekend for the Powersource Transportation team.  It isn’t very often a team can qualify one and get the win, especially while bracket racing.”  Snyder smiled, “We just had a great weekend.  The close races fell our way.  The car was consistently in the 3-second zone.  I was cutting good lights and the win lights were on our side.  It’s hard to beat this ComSyncEFI and Lencodrive combination.  I’ve said it before, but I think it is safe to say we have a pretty neat hot rod here that can go some rounds.”

After four solid qualifying passes, the Powersource Transportation “Orange Menace” Corvette ran a best of 3.939 at 187.27 on its way to the number one qualifying spot in the tough 16 car door slamming field.  Snyder took the win in the first round of competition with a holeshot and a lifting 4.031 at 184.12 mph effort.  In the second round, Snyder took the win in the double break out race with a 3.987 at 187.11 on the 3.99 dial, but his opponent broke out by .001 more.  In the semifinals, Snyder took the win with a .009 light and a 4.008 at 187.11 on the 3.97 dial.  His competition took the stripe but went too fast sending Snyder to the finals.  In the finals, Snyder motored down with a 3.990 at 175.78 to tighten up the stripe and take the win. 

“We are having a blast in Top Sportsman.  We had a weekend where everything just clicked.  I really like racing with the PDRA; it just feels like home.  The racers are tough.  The cars are quicker.  All wins are special, but this one is a little extra special.  I am blessed to have such a great team and all family at that.  This weekend we had all three kids with us and my sister and her fiancé were here racing in Top Dragster.  It makes the winner’s circle that much sweeter when it’s filled with family and friends.  The PDRA Top Sportsman trophies now read Ronnie Davis Top Sportsman Winner.  Ronnie was a legend, a friend, my little boy’s buddy and an interesting personality.  It means a lot to have a trophy on the shelf that carries his name.”  Snyder continued, “I need to thank Jason and Mitchell (Scruggs) and Barb (Bakos) from Powersource Transportation for all they do for our team.  There are a lot of great people and companies that make what we do possible.  It feels good to give them all a win.  It just can’t get much better than this.”

“We have about a month and a half off until the next race.  It was a great time to get a win.  It’s almost like winning the last race of the season,” Snyder laughed.  The next event on the Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the NMCA Battle for the Rings at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL on July 28-30.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

Snyder Back to PDRA after Quick NHRA Event

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team are rolling to Martin, MI, just a couple hours from Snyder Motorsports, for the PDRA Summer Drags at US 131 Motorsports Park.  Fresh off a great NHRA Divisional outing that produced combination best numbers, 6.120 at 232.11 mph, and a couple winning rounds of competition in Chicago, the Snyder Motorsports Team hopes to keep the performance and the round wins going during the premier eighth-mile, door-slamming event this weekend.  This will be the fifth stop for the Snyder Motorsports’ Supercharged, EFI Top Sportsman 1963 Corvette that is Snyder Lencodrive equipped.  The 5-time Season Champs qualified number one during the last outing and are looking to keep the great performance going this weekend in front of the hometown crowd.  The PDRA Summer Drags run from June 10th through the 11th and will feature some of the fastest door cars on the planet, a kid zone and a live band.

“We had an exciting event in Chicago.  We qualified at the top with a new ComSyncEFI combination best, had one wide ride during the Flatout Gaskets Fast Four and went a few rounds bracket racing, but I red lighted by a few thousandth during the round of eight.  All in all a great weekend.”  Snyder continued, “We are onto the next event and back to eighth-mile racing this weekend.  I’m pretty excited to be back to the PDRA.  The Powersource Transportation Vette is running great and I’m excited to see if we can get some combination best numbers this weekend in the heat at Martin.  It would be nice to put the door car in the Winner’s Circle at our closest PDRA Event!”

“I really like racing here.  Jason does such a great job with the track.  And, we have some hometown friends coming up, since it is so close to the shop.  We have raced and tested here quite a few times over the years.  We used to race the funny car here at the Thunder Nationals.  I think we won that deal three years in a row, and always ran some of our best passes.  I also killed a 12 round winning streak here in 2012 with a two wheeled tap to the wall, but we’ll stick to the good stories,” Snyder laughed.  “This was the first place we tested the ComSyncEFI last year.  We have lots of great stories and great memories here.  It would be nice to add another great memory this weekend.  I packed a bottle of champagne just in case.”

As Snyder looks for a win in Martin, the first three of 4 rounds of qualifying for the PDRA Summer Drags begins on Friday at 10:00 AM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with one more chance to make the 16-car field at 9:00 AM.  Final eliminations will begin on Saturday at 3:00 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Looks for Windy City Win

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team are headed just a short hour and a half down the street to Route 66 Raceway this weekend.   The track located in Joliet, IL just outside of the Windy City will host the Burndown at Sundown NHRA Division 3 Regional.  This will be the fourth stop for Snyder Motorsports’ Supercharged, EFI Top Sportsman 1963 Corvette that is Snyder Lencodrive equipped.  The Team has been qualifying at the top of the pack all season.  The 5-time Season Champs are looking to keep the great performance going this weekend in front of the hometown crowd.  The Burndown at Sundown runs from June 3rd through the 5th and will feature the Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Flatout Gaskets Fast Four Shootout during the Saturday night show before the jet cars and fireworks display.

“Here we go again!  I love racing the Powersource Transportation Vette in Chicago!  It’s close to home, the shop and Powersource.  Heck, we can get an extra day of work in at Snyder Motorsports before we have to leave for the track,” Snyder laughed.  “And, we needed that extra day this week.  The shop has been busy and we had a short week.  On Tuesday, the car was in a million pieces.  It was time to do some preventive maintenance with back-to-back races coming up, next week is PDRA in Martin, MI.  We got everything back together with a few little changes that should make her perform a little better.  We have a Flatout Gaskets Fast Four and an almost 230 mile per hour bracket race this weekend.  I’m pretty excited.”

“I talked about this before the last Divisional, and it has been fun to reminisce a little.  There seems to be a story with every track anymore.  Some places there are a few.  Well Route 66 Raceway is no different; we’ve won here, hit the wall here, lost a rear wheel, tire and hub and didn’t get the wall here, got our TAFC license, backed over a golf cart with the funny car and made countless test passes here.”  Snyder continued, “One of my favorite stories was in 2004, we were racing the Snyder Motorsports Top Alcohol Funny Car at the Carquest Nationals.  It was the fall national back when Chicago had two a year.  This was our first full season in TAFC.  We were lacking a major sponsor, but we were having a great year and even leading the Division 3 points at the time.  With the All-Star race, first round was early Sunday morning.  Saturday night was a late one as we signed a major sponsor for the next season.  We woke up and it was so cold the computer wouldn’t even turn on.  We used a hair dryer to get the computer fired up and gas to get the funny car to lite.  Round after round, we went up against All-Star after All-Star from other divisions until we made it to the finals.  We had consistently 5.60’d the field.  In the finals, our opponent shook and we ran another 5.60 to earn our first ever NHRA Wally at our home track.  Jay Payne delivered the “Winner’s Beer” to me while we were still on the scales.  It was a pretty amazing weekend for a low buck family team.  Lucky for us, we had a lot of help loading the trailer after a long Winner’s Circle.”

As Snyder looks for another win at Chicago, the first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA Burndown at Sundown begins on Friday at 3:00 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with two more chances to make the 32-car field at 3:00 and 7:30, as well as the Flatout Fast Four Heads Up Shootout Eliminations around 7:00 and 9:00 for the Top 4 Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Qualifiers.  Final eliminations will begin on Sunday at 10:30 AM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder: A Thing or Two at Norwalk

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation 1963 Corvette had a weekend of twos during the second stop on the 2016 NHRA North Central Division’s Lucas Oil Divisional Schedule, which brought the Snyder Motorsports Crew to Norwalk, Ohio’s Summit Motorsports Park for the Cavalcade of Stars.  The Orange Menace team qualified in the number two spot after a rain shortened two rounds of qualifying for the 32-car field with an early clicked pass.  The 5-time season champs went two rounds before falling just short in the third round of final eliminations.  The Team was one of two champs for the rained delayed and unfinished Top Sportsman Fast Four Shootout, which was called after the first round of eliminations.  While the team fell short of hoisting the Wally, the weekend was not without successes: round wins, co-champ status and major improvements to the supercharged, electronic fuel injected ride.

“What a great weekend for Snyder Motorsports and the Powersource Transportation Team. We went some rounds, kept it exciting with some unintentional stunt driving on the top end after only one chute opened, almost finish a Fast Four and made major improvements to the car over the weekend at Norwalk.  Since the beginning, we have been chasing the suspension with this combo.  With the help of a wise shock guru, Charlie Taylor, we are really starting to get a handle on this hot rod.”  Snyder continued, “We are having a lot of fun with this deal.  We are making steady improvements, which makes it exciting and keeps it challenging.”

During qualifying, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran a booming 6.233-seconds and 228.04 mph to put them second on the qualifying sheet.  Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a lifting 6.249 at 220.66 mph effort.  In the second round, Snyder had the winning package with the holeshot and a coasting 6.269 at 206.04 to take the stripe at the quarter mile.  In the quarterfinals, Snyder had the reaction time advantage but fell short of taking the win by just .019 of a second with a 6.232 at 225.07 effort.

“I can’t wait for the next race in Chicago,” Snyder exclaimed.  “It’s close to home, which could mean some family and hometown fans.  And if the weather can hold out, I think we could run some good numbers there.”  The next event on the 2016 Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the NHRA Burndown at Sundown Lucas Oil Series Divisional on June 3-5 at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL.

Snyder Heads Historically East

Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports team are headed East to the pristine Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH for the Cavalcade of Stars NHRA Division 3 Regional this weekend.  This marks the third stop of 2016 for the Supercharged, ComSyncEFI; Lencodrive Racing Transmission equipped Top Sportsman 1963 Corvette.  The Powersource Transportation Team qualified at the top of the pack during the Spring Spectacular of Speed at Lucas Oil Raceway last month. The 5-time Champs are looking to keep the great performance going this weekend in front of the packed stands.  The Cavalcade of Stars at Summit Motorsports Park will run from May 20th through May 22nd and will feature a Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Fast Four Shootout during the Saturday night show before the fireworks display.

“I know I say this every time we leave the shop and head to the track with our Powersource Transportation 63’ Vette, but I’m really excited for this weekend: the Norwalk Facility; the Simplicity of our ComSyncEFI System; the Almost 230 MPH Excitement of Top Sportsman Bracket Racing; the Pound of Ice Cream for a Buck; the Ability to Race with my Family; the Joy of Pushing Shift Buttons on our Lencodrive; the Accomplishment of Helping Snyder Customers; the Look on my Cam’s Face as the Bounce Houses come into View; the Thrill of Racing in Front of Packed Grand Stands; the Vintage Trailers’ Racer Appreciation Dinner; the Hope of Making the Fast Four Shootout and the Jaw Dropping Fireworks Display! There is a lot to get excited about this weekend!  Not to mention, we made some major changes to the car, and I’m interested to see what the results will be.”  Snyder continued, “We’ve been doing this a long time.  The passion for performance and the interest of improving is what keeps us coming back for more.” 

“This is my 24th season and it may seem strange, but there seems to be a thrilling story with every track anymore.  Some places there are a few.  The famed Norwalk Raceway Park, turned Summit Motorsport Park, has more than a few; I could write a book of stories going all the way back to our junior days.  We have had 17 different dragsters, funny cars or door cars through the years, and 16 have made a pass down the Ohio quarter mile.  From dominating wins to seized steering boxes, we have had our fair share of fun.” Snyder continued, ”We have won, lost, been on fire, best appearing, beat our own spare junior in the finals, qualified number 1, dropped a valve and oiled, raced in front of one of the largest crowds in drag racing history, set career best numbers, bracket raced, heads up raced and even foot raced.  You just never know what you might get when you pull in the gate.” 

“One of best stories was in 2010, we were racing the now defunct ADRL and it was my “rookie” year with the door car.  We raced the same Powersource Transportation Corvette as now, but it was in Screw Blown, Pro Extreme trim back then.  We made it to the finals.  The grand stands and the starting line were packed with people.  We left.  The car shook hard, went right.  I pedaled.  Hindsight, that probably wasn’t the best idea, but it was the finals,” Snyder smiled.  “The guy we raced popped the blower in a burst of flames.  We went through the traps at full throttle in first gear.  The boards lit up on our side for the win.  Then, the discussion started.  Did we cross the centerline?  After what seemed like an eternity, we were good and the Minute Man was ours.  The beverages were colder, the stories were sweeter and the moment was shared with a great guy that is no longer with us.  This made for a win we will never forget.”

As Snyder looks for another win at Norwalk, the first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA Cavalcade of Stars begins on Friday at 5:00 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with two more chances to make the 32-car field at 2:30 and 7:30, as well as the Fast Four Heads Up Shootout Eliminations at 7:00 and 9:00 for the Top 4 Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Qualifiers.  Final eliminations will begin on Sunday at 10:30 AM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Top Qualifier at D3 Season Opener
and Takes the Top Sportsman Fast Four “Win”

At the first NHRA North Central Lucas Oil Divisional of 2016, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation Team traveled to Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis for the NHRA Spring Spectacular of Speed.  The 5-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Electric Fuel Injected Top Sportsman combination gained a lot of exposure and posted combination best numbers on their way to the Number 1 Qualifying Position.  During final eliminations, the team fell short in the first round, but it was still a successful NHRA season opener at the famed quarter-mile facility for the Snyder Motorsports Orange Menace team, who picked up the Top Sportsman Fast Four “win”.

During the Friday qualifying session, the Powersource Transportation Corvette ran a booming 6.207 at 228.61 to put them at the top of the qualifying sheet.  The second day of qualifying and the DRE Engine Diapers Fast Four, race within a race, were unfortunately canceled due to Saturday’s inclement weather.  After one last qualifying shot on Sunday, Snyder fell just short during the first round of eliminations.  Snyder missed taking the win stripe by .014 with a 6.320 at 225.37 mph pass in a losing effort.  However, the Indiana based team was awarded the DRE Engine Diapers Fast Four Win for their number one qualifying effort.

“It was a good weekend for Snyder Motorsports and the Powersource Transportation Team.  Anytime you are running combination best numbers and qualifying at the top of pack you can’t complain.  It was also really nice of DRE to award the Top Sportsman Fast Four Winner to the number one qualifier.  I would have liked to race to the win, but sometimes Mother Nature has different plans,” Snyder smiled.  “This Snyder Motorsports Hemi, Snyder Lencodrive, Snyder-ized Coan Converter, ComSyncEFI combination is proving to be bad fast.  Our Top Sportsman Vette is a lot of fun to drive.  I’m really enjoying the challenge of trying to bracket race at almost 230 mile per hour.  We changed up the combination before this race and are still trying to get the most out of our changes.  Like most racers, we are always trying to improve and go faster, even if it is a bracket race.”

“Our Snyder Motorsports customers were holding their own in Top Dragster, the Alcohol ranks and the Top Sportsman fields, as well.  Snyder Motorsports had a great showing.  Our Snyder Hemi Engines, Snyder Motorsports Lencodrives, Snyder-ized Coan Converters or ComSyncEFI packages took 4 of the Top 5 in Top Sportsman and 3 of the Top 5 in Top Dragster.   We had quite a few more in the Top 10 and even a few Snyder customers in the Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car classes.  I love seeing our customers do well.  It’s almost as rewarding as our house car doing well,” Snyder laughed.  “Our team and our Snyder customers will have another shot at doing well in a couple weeks at Norwalk.”

The next event on the 2016 Snyder Motorsports Powersource Transportation Schedule is the NHRA Cavalcade of Stars Lucas Oil Series Divisional on May 20-22 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, HotRod Tracker, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing for their continued support over the years.

Snyder Heads to the Home State Track

Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team roll into Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Raceway, located just a couple hours from the Snyder Motorsports World Head Quarters, for the NHRA Division 3 Season Opener this weekend.  The Northern Indiana based team is ready to get their ¼ mile season started at their home state’s track.  Their innovative Supercharged, ComSyncEFI, Lencodrive Racing Transmission combination netted two final round appearances with one win and a few number one qualifiers last year.  Snyder and the 5-time Season Championship Team are looking for a big outing at the “Big Go” facility.  The Spring Spectacular of Speed at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana will run from April 29th through May 1st with a Thursday Test Session and a Top Sportsman Fast Four on Saturday.

“We are excited to get the Orange Menace back on the track and even more excited to be close to home.  It’s always nice to have family and friends come to the track and experience what we love.  We have a lot of excitement in the Snyder Motorsports - Powersource Transportation pits this weekend at Indy.  Our ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management now has Bluetooth, so I will no longer be tied to a cable when making changes to our electronic fuel system or our coil pack ignition.  This is pretty exciting for me.”  Snyder continued, “Plus, NHRA Division 3 and DRE are having a Fast Four for Top Sportsman and Top Dragster on Saturday night.  My Sister, Shanna, and Troy Stone’s Vintage Trailers Dragster with a Snyder Motorsports Lencodrive is the defending champ in the Top Dragster Fast Four.  It would be really cool if we could both qualify for the Fast Four this weekend.  And, it’s always nice to have two shots at winning something over the weekend.  It should be a great weekend with a lot of family and friends.”

“Earlier this month, we were at the PDRA Spring Nationals in Rockingham, NC.  We qualified a stout second in the quickest PDRA Top Sportsman field ever, but fell second round due to some tire shake.  We are looking to improve a spot in qualifying and go a few more rounds at this race.  The plan is to test on Thursday and get our car happier,” Snyder smiled.  “We have a really fast Powersource Transportation Vette with this ComSyncEFI, Snyder Lencodrive combo, but we have struggled a little on the consistency side.  We made a few changes since Rockingham, now we get to see if we were right.”

“I have been racing at Indy since the Junior Dragster days,” stated the 24-season veteran.  “I can’t wait to get the NHRA part of this season started and go a little quarter mile racing.  And, it’s always nice to race at a familiar track.”  The first of 3 rounds of qualifying for the NHRA Spring Spectacular of Speed begins on Friday at 3:45 PM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with two more chances to make the 32-car field at 12:30 and 4:30, as well as a Quick Four Eliminations at 4:00 and 6:00 for the Top 4 Top Sportsman Qualifiers.  Final eliminations will begin on Sunday at 10:00 AM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Takes the Top Sportsman Vette to The Rock
with
New Associate Sponsor for His Hot Rod: HotRod Tracker

As the Professional Drag Racers Association heads back to the birthplace of the exciting 1/8th mile door slamming series, Mick Snyder and the Powersource Transportation team roll into Rockingham Dragway excited to get their 2016 Season started.  The Snyder Motorsports Crew is rolling into North Carolina’s The Rock with a little extra confidence this year.  Their inventive Supercharged, ComSyncEFI and Lencodrive Racing Transmission combination now has a season of successful testing in Top Sportsman trim and the trophy from the PDRA Memphis Drags to prove it.  The former Pro Extreme and Alcohol Funny Car Champions hope to use last year’s experience from this winning combination to hoist the Spring Nationals trophy in Winner’s Circle after the race on April 8 and 9.

“I know I say this every year before the first race, but this has been a crazy off-season for Snyder Motorsports.  The shop seems busier now than ever and I have been traveling a lot with the record holding Bad9er Pro Drag Radial Team of Kyle Huettel and Jason Michalak.  This may be the first race out with our Powersource Transportation Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman Vette, but this will be my fourth weekend in a row and the seventh race Snyder Motorsports has attended already this year.”  Snyder continued, “Normally, we spend the cold months focused on the Orange Menace and improving our ET.  This off-season, we have been concentrating more on new products and customer ET’s: it seems to be a winning combination.  We decided to let the shoe polish do the work on our top qualifying Powersource Transportation ride.”

Snyder Motorsports is happy to announce the addition of a new associate sponsor for 2016.  HotRod Tracker has come on board to promote their new GPS tracking device and safe driving solution that utilizes Verizon Wireless’s award-winning nationwide network.  HotRod Tracker has combined their years of industry expertise with innovative technology to deliver the most robust automotive tracking and safe driving solution in the marketplace, and Snyder Motorsports is thrilled to have them on board with our innovative ride.  “I’m excited to see this new relationship with HotRod Tracker grow, “ Snyder Exclaimed.  “They are a great company with even better people behind it.” 

“We are lucky to have a bunch of great companies that support our Team. Barb and her Team at Powersource Transportation have been with us for ten seasons now.  I am honored to be the fastest mover in the power-only trucking fleet.  It is humbling to think that many of these people and companies that support our team have been with us for the better part of 15 and even 20 years.  Mark at Flatout Gaskets has been with us since our Junior Dragster days.  The same is true for Mike and Jules at R&R Racing Products.  Obviously, Rick at Snyder Auto has been here since the beginning and even worked on the Alcohol Funny Car crew back in the day.  Gary at Lenco Racing Transmissions has been an instrumental part of our racing and business success.  The same can be said for Jason at Coan Engineering; it’s hard to believe fifteen years ago we started what would now be the industry standard: Blown Alcohol Hemis with Converters.  VP Racing Fuels, Jason and our team have had the most interesting relationship over the years, but that has only made it stronger. ”  Snyder continued, “I know this is getting a little long winded, but these are the people that keep this championship team on the track.  My “big three” are the industry leaders and have been with us for about 10 years: Tom with Lucas Oil, Sean with JE Pistons and Kris with NGK Spark Plugs.  Those three are the best in their respected niches without question.  Our new supercharged, electronic fuel injection combination brought with it some innovative companies with great people: Bub and Steve at Aeromotive Fuel Systems, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management and Ryan at Mick’s Performance.  Last and certainly not least, Dave at Visner Engine Development and our VED Hemi Heads which have really perked up our combination and a few others.  We truly have one of the best groups in drag racing.”

“This marks my 24th season behind the wheel of a drag car.  I can’t wait to get this season started.  I have a feeling this is going to be the most exciting year yet for Snyder Motorsports and our Parts Pedalin’ Team,” Snyder smiled.  The first of 2 rounds of qualifying for the PDRA Spring Nationals begins on Friday at 9:30 AM.  Qualifying continues on Saturday with a third and final chance to make the 16 car field beginning at 9:00 AM and final eliminations begin at 3 PM.  For up to date information please log onto www.dragracecentral.com

Snyder Renews Decade Long Powersource Transportation Partnership

Former Pro Extreme and Alcohol Funny Car Champion turned Top Sportsman pilot, Mick Snyder and the Snyder Motorsports Team are thrilled to announce their Supercharged, Electronic Fuel Injected Corvette will once again fly the Powersource Transportation banner during the 2016 season.  This tour will mark the tenth time the doors of Snyder’s Orange Menace will feature the power only trucking company’s logo.   This decade long partnership has been through three cars, three classes, three organizations, three trailers, countless parts and two championships.  Snyder is honored to be the quickest and fastest mover in the Power Only Trucking Fleet for yet another season.

“Our family and race team could not be associated with a better supporter than Barb and her Powersource Transportation Team.  We have been through it all: Alcohol Funny Cars, Pro Mods, ADRL, NHRA, PDRA, heads-up, bracket racing, championship seasons and not-so-championship seasons,” Snyder smiled.  “But I will say this, we have graced the Winner’s Circle with every car in every organization at least a couple times and that would not have been possible without the support of Powersource Transportation.” 

“This marks my 24th season behind the wheel of a drag car, and Powersource Transportation has been there for a majority of my big car career.  We have changed and maneuvered through it all together.  This past year was no different.  While we had a lot of success on the track with our ComSyncEFI and Top Sportsman début, it was by far one of the hardest for our team and our family off the track.  The passing of Skip took us all by surprise.  He has been gone for just over a year now, and Powersource is stronger than ever, growing with Barb at the helm.  We miss our buddy, but we are excited to see what the future brings and can’t wait to get this 2016 Top Sportsman season started.  Who knows we might even début a 1968 Camaro this season,” Snyder laughed.

It is an honor to represent some of the best companies in racing.  Snyder Motorsports would like to thank their great associate sponsors; companies like Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, Flatout Gaskets, R & R Racing Products, VED Hemi Heads, Aeromotive, VP Racing Fuels, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Safety-Kleen and Long Printing keep the championship team winning year after year.
