Saturday featured the K&N Horsepower Challenge where Mike Edwards took the Runner Up title with a great string of runs for the day. (Greg Anderson won the Challenge). Sunday saw another great day of racing in Pro Stock with Rookie Phenom, Vincent Nobile, picking up another Wally with his Mountain View Tire Dodge Avenger.

June Racing Heats Up with the Spring into Summer!
The Jerry Haas Race Cars built cars have kept their winning ways into the summer season!
Success continued in Bristol with Mike Edwards getting the Wally in NHRA's Pro Stock final over Erica Enders during a rain soaked weekend. The race was held June 17-19 in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee and this is Mike's second win of the 2011 season.
Meanwhile, in a hot & steamy Topeka the same weekend as Bristol (June 17 & 18), the ADRL rolled into town to host another great event. The Extreme Pro Stock class was won by Scott Hintz in his fast blue Mustang while Lamar Swindoll Jr grabbed the Runner Up title in his fast, flat black Cavalier in the Extreme 10.5 class. The ADRL heads for Michigan's 131 Racway in July.

May 6th and 7th saw the ADRL making its debut at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. JHRC cars continued the hot streak by running big numbers in cool conditions! Although the race was called before its finish due to a track curfew and delays from rainshowers earlier in the day, JHRC was represented very well! In the Extreme 10.5 class, Lamar Swindoll, Jr. was running strong all weekend and made it to the final eight cars. The two Pro Modified classes were well represented with Tommy Gray (below left) making in to the Pro Extreme semi-finals with his Undertaker GTO and Freddy Scriba (below middle) making it to the final in Pro Nitrous with his '63 split window Vette.
