WMSD May 2 T&T Recap

lead.jpgWest Michigan Sand Dragway in Mears, MI opened their doors for the 2009 season on May 2 with a Test and Tune day. Some different combinations were tried out as well as some familiar faces checking out what the track surface will hold in the new season. Bruce Hartung set Low ET of the day in his Turbo Four-Cylinder dragster with a 3.46. The Compromised Team of Nick Disselkoen and Steve Bobeldyk put a bigger blower on their Pro Truck and ran an impressive 3.53 off the trailer. Trent Everett debuted his new ride (the ex-Whiplash Jeep) and made some high 3.7 passes. Ben Dozeman made some test passes in preparation for the Grudge Match versus Jay Steele in the J10 Jeep Truck at the Cleves Pro Truck Nationals event. Dozeman ran a best of 3.77 on the day at 90+ MPH, showing it has a LOT of potential in the future. Around 50 total entries tried out the track on the Test & Tune day; check out some more of the cars that tested in the photos and video below. Hopefully you checked out some of the updates in our Race Updates bar from this event, we’ll do it again next weekend when WMSD kicks off their 2009 point series season.
