MIR Completes Trifecta at 16th Annual
Junior Dragster Team Finals

Press Release courtesy of:  Fabian Brown

 

The 2012 IHRA Junior Dragster Team Finals presented by AMSOIL brought a lot of anticipation to MIR. Northeast Dragway was looking to defend their 2011 championship, while other teams looked to make their mark in the junior dragster world. This event was truly unique as for the first time in event history, a team from outside the United States traveled to Budds Creek to compete. Grand Bend Motorplex traveled 14 hours and went through 4 storms to take part in this event. As always, the event started out on Friday night with MIR Promoter Royce Miller challenging all drivers and teams to a water gun war. However, just as in years past, the teams came out in full force and soaked Royce from head to toe. Friday night’s Gambler’s race win went to MIR Team 1 driver TJ Estevez. The win was only just a smidge of what team MIR had in store for their competition.

Through the index racing and et racing on Saturday, during hot temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees, the young men and women of the junior dragster ranks put on their game faces and stepped up and took on not only their competitors, but mother nature. With a pizza party and a “Cool” tower suite on the line, the competition got hotter than the air temperature, as MIR teams 1 & 2 claimed victory in the team competitions on Saturday. The other teams took notice that the home track advantage was starting to show as MIR looked to make history as not only the first track to repeat as champions, but the first to win all 3 team competitions. A feat that was halted last year as Northeast Dragway won the main event in dominating fashion. With teams from Las Vegas, Georgia and everywhere in between, one thing was for sure that every team could be considered a favorite.

As the rounds went by, MIR team 3 pulled out to a lead after a 3rd round that they would never surrender. Congratulations to all four 2012 Junior Dragster Champions!
