Team Aruba Ready for The Legendary Darlington Dragway
DARLINGTON, S.C. (May 18, 2017): The Professional Drag Racers Association hosts its third event of the season this weekend at The Legendary Darlington Dragway. Team Aruba and the Aruba.com Pro Stock Mustang are already on site at the event, utilizing the Thursday test session and gain more familiarity with the track.
While Trevor Eman has wheeled the Mustang down the Darlington eighth-mile, he’s only done so in test sessions thus far. This weekend’s PDRA Spring Nationals will be his first event at the historic facility.
“It’s been awhile since we’ve been to Darlington,” explained Eman. “We’ve tested here a couple of times back in 2008. It was a great place to test back then, but now with the improvements they’ve done to the facility, it seems like it has become a great place to race, as well.”
The Miller family, who also run with the PDRA, own Darlington Dragway and have put in great efforts to restore the track to its former glory days.
“We’re focusing on continuing our momentum from the GALOT race into this weekend,” continued Eman. “So hopefully we can repeat on the number one qualifier and take it all the way this weekend.”
Eman currently sits seventh in championship points standings, and is looking for a solid performance to build upon his top qualifying spot and semi-final finish from the last event.
Two rounds of pro qualifying begins at 3pm on Friday with a third and final qualifying session Saturday at 1pm before eliminations kick off at 6pm. All the action is streamed live at www.SpeedVideo.com.
