The Summit Racing Mid-West Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service LLC descended on St Louis’ World Wide Technology Raceway over the weekend of June 28th for the KSHE 95 Night of Fire & Thunder!

Stroud Safety Pro Mods

The Stroud Safety Pro Mod class hosted 21 cars, with a great mix of power adders! Nearly half the field [10 cars] came equipped with screw blowers, six with nitrous, turbos accounting for two and Procharger powering the final three.

Mark Micke’s turbo car took the #1 Qualifier spot, for the third consecutive event, with a 3.636 at 215.10, the quickest and fastest pass of the event. Brandon Snider’s Screw Blown ‘63 Corvette was Second Qualifier, and quickest Screw Blown car, with a 3.667 at 202.15. Keith Haney was the Quickest Nitrous car, qualifying fourth with a 3.700 at 202.45. Todd Bennett’s Procharged C7 Corvette held the 13th Qualifier spot with a 3.791 for the Quickest Procharger car.

Round One of Eliminations was an all out assault by the screw blower cars, with five cars moving on.  Mark Micke and Ed Thornton’s turbo cars made it past Round One and Keith Haney was the lone nitrous racer to make Round Two. The Quickest Pass of Round One went to Mark Micke with a 3.654. We also saw Ryan Bush make his debut in Pro Mod Eliminations as an alternate after Keith Goolsby failed to make E1.

Turbo cars did well in Round Two with Ed moving past Keith and Mark over Tommy Cunnignham. Brandon outran Aaron Wells and Ron Muenks was quicker than Robert Costa. This setup a Turbo VS Turbo and Screw VS Screw Round Three. Ed and Mark ran side by side for maybe the best pass of the Pro Mod Class! Ed ran a possible PB with his 3.668 to Mark’s 3.658. Mark cut a huge 0.004 light, the best reaction time of the class. Snider would move past Muenks with a 3.655 for the quickest pass of the Round.

Sadly, the rain would make its way on the track before the Finals could be run. Mark and Brandon elected to run the Finals in Q2 of our next race at Martin, MI.

The Pro Mod Slammers class was split between Widener and Yeoman because of the weather.

In other Pro Mod news, we saw three cars make their debut in the class! Ryan Bush, who is campaigning in the Pro 4.20 Class moved up to Pro Mod in his nitrous First Gen Camaro, increasing to 4 stages and running a best of 4.059 in Qualifying. Robert Costa took delivery of his Brand-New ‘23 Mustang from Larry Jeffers Race Cars. Robert has experience in a Pro Mod, but this is his first Screw Blower….
