UNION, S.C. March 4, 2013:  Spending the off season in Aruba certainly has its perks, but Trevor Eman and the Aruba.com / Alltel Wireless Extreme Pro Stock Team are now back stateside and visions of sandy beaches are quickly being replaced with shining trophies as they prepare for this weekend’s ADRL Dragpalooza IX.

“After a demanding race season a break to regroup and refocus is always needed,” told Eman. “We are just fortunate enough to do it that in our island paradise home. An Aruban vacation would do every drag racer good. Now, however, it’s time to buckle down and prepare ourselves to do some winning this season.

“The car went back to Jerry Haas Race Cars for some updates this winter, and also to SD Enterprises paint shop to have the paint job touched up where necessary. We’ve gone over the car thoroughly ourselves to make sure everything is completely ready. We’re ready to tackle another race season!”

Alltel Wireless is joining the Aruba.com Mustang for the third straight season. Trevor and team will be on display at the Alltel Wireless store in Rockingham, N.C. on Wednesday March 6th.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Alltel back with us for the third straight year,” added Eman. “It is certainly a morale booster when a sponsor has the confidence to support you for three years in a row. I hope that all the fans will come by the Alltel Wireless display. Stop by to check out Alltel’s newest deals and show your support!”

With the newly formed X-DRL, there are now two eighth mile drag racing series available to Extreme Pro Stock teams for the first time ever. Eman and team have hopes to run some of both series:

“We are going to commit to the ADRL series and run a couple of X-DRL races that work out easily in our travels between the ADRL races. The traveling back and forth to Aruba in between races will make it difficult to hit them all, but we’re excited for what both of these series have to offer this year.

“The whole team is very eager to get the season started. The team chemistry I feel is working real well, and I think that will show this season with some positive results. We have support from all over – even the airport! By this time, many people at the airport in Aruba know us and they are cheering us on and wishing us luck. That is certainly very motivating. They want to see us take home the trophy just as bad as we do.

“We just can’t wait to get to the track this weekend!”
