DESPITE TRIALS, TEAM ARUBA MAKES THE SHOW AT NUMBER 15
By Tristan Ralston on 8th September, 2013
ROCKINGHAM, N.C. September 7, 2013: Trevor Eman and Team Aruba took the Aruba.com / Alltel Wireless Mustang right down broadway in somewhat tricky conditions during the final late night qualifying session at Dragstock X to land themselves in the number 15 spot in qualifying. The 4.129 elapsed time improved upon their earlier time of 4.152 and was enough to secure their spot to compete in eliminations and continue their Championship run.
Eman will be paired with Kevin Bleako for round one. Bleako qualified number two with a 4.079.
“Unfortunately, we had a rather frustrating day of qualifying,” told Eman. “We are happy that we are at least in the show, but our performance hasn’t been the way it usually is. Track conditions are tricky and at the same time we’re battling a small electrical gremlin that we cannot seem to pinpoint. Hopefully tomorrow we can clear up some issues with the racecar and take out Kevin Bleako in round one. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.”
Eliminations will begin at 11am. Fans can tune in and watch live at www.adrl.us or follow Team Aruba on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and results.
