NHRA Pro Stock’s Mike Edwards in the Penhall/Young Life/Interstate Batteries Pontiac
Mike Edwards and his Penhall/Interstate Batteries/K&N Pontiac made history in the first qualifying session at the Tire Kingdom NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway. As the third pair out in the qualifying session, Edwards blasted to a 6.496, 213.47, becoming the first driver in NHRA Pro Stock history to eclipse both the 6.4 and the 213 mph barrier.
"All I can say is that was an incredible run," Edwards added. "To run a 6.49 and at over 213 mph in a Pro Stock car is quite a rush and is hard to explain. This is the best medicine any of us could ask for.
"In my first few years in Pro Stock, we were shooting to break the six-second barrier and the 200-mph mark, and we thought that was the plateau. Now we are running these types of numbers, it goes to show how much we knew back then."
Venue/Location: NHRA Gatornationals, Gainesville Raceway, Gainesville, Fla.
Time/Date/TV: Qualifying will air Saturday night from 11 – 12:30 a.m. CST on ESPN2. Eliminations air Sunday 5-8 p.m. CDT on ESPN2.
Reminder: Spring forward on Sunday morning!
