First On Race Day, as the saying goes, and that’s what Mickey Thompson Radial Wars racer Daniel Pharris is hoping to be this weekend at the 11th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing. Pharris was the first through the gate this morning and the first unloaded. Currently he sits just 80 points shy of class leader DeWayne Mills in the Radial Wars championship points chase.
VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod is expecting over two dozen racers at Rt. 66 Raceway here in Joliet, Illinois. Dina Parise and her husband/crew chief, Andrew Parise, are already on the property and are looking to break into the top ten on the points list with their Aerospace Components-sponsored Cadillac CTS-V.
