The Wait Is Over: Aeroquip Heads Up Friday, May 3rd

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Months of frigid cold and endless snow has led to this, the first Aeroquip Heads Up Race of the season! As much as drag racing fans don’t like winter, it gives these race teams a chance to work on their programs and come back faster, better, and stronger.  

To make this May event even better than ever, we now have Total Venue Concepts coming in to prep the track, and for every Heads Up race this year. If you weren’t sure if you should be here, I’m telling you that you will be MISSING OUT if you aren’t. These cars are going to be wicked fast.  

The jaw dropping speeds of Mechanical Heating & Cooling Run What Ya Brung cars. The Earth-shaking Ground Control Property Services Outlaw 10.5 cars, well… and truck. The wheels up racing in VP Racing Fuels Drag Radial. Liberty’s Gears All Motor who show just how fast you can go without a power adder, SPOILER ALERT: it’s unbelievably fast. The so close you can hardly call it racing of Holbrook Racing Outlaw 632. The zip of the OSDRA/Mott Powersports Sled classes. The no room for error Amsoil Open Comp field. The get up and go of the Diamond Pistons Motor City Muscle Challenge class.

The First Friday Aeroquip Heads Up program brings racers in from all over region. If you want to prove you’re fast, this is where you need to be. If you want to see some of the fastest cars around go head to head, this is where you need to be. If you like to be bored, this isn’t the race for you. If you like edge of your seat racing, this is the place for you. If you want to GET EXCITED, here’s the time and place:

Aeroquip Heads Up Competitor: Bob Adel

Bob Adel is coming to the August Aeroquip Heads Up race looking to set some personal best numbers in the Diamond Pistons Outlaw 10.5 class. His current best is a 4.25 at 175 MPH. The 1993 “Under Pressure” Twin Turbo Mustang is definitely under some pressure with Bob Adel looking for a new personal best. 

Aeroquip Heads Up Competitor: Brandon Wakeling

Brandon Wakeling is one of the Mechanical Heating & Cooling Run What Ya Brung competitors. He ran his personal best ET in July when the 1941 Willys Pro Mod went 4.20 in the 1/8 mile. He said he is feeling unsure and overwhelmed coming into the August event, but we’re sure he’s just being hard on himself because the car always puts on a great show. 

Aeroquip Heads Up Competitor: Mike Barran

Two time VP Racing Drag Radial Champion and current points leader Mike Barran will of course be here with his 1985 Chevy Camaro. This car and driver always perform. We’re never disappointed with the show this duo puts on. Currently Barran’s best pass is a 4.31 at 182 MPH. Mike has 3300 pounds of American made muscle built for one reason and one reason only…. to WIN! The purpose built race car succeeded in June, but went out a little earlier in July. Can it fulfill its lifelong goal and finish at the top this month??
