UNION, S.C. – July 10, 2012:  Team Aruba has had a wide mix of highs and lows so far in 2012. From not qualifying to a final round and back again, the team from the “happy island” has had their share of joys and frustrations. As the ADRL heads to US 131 Motorsports Park for the Summer Nationals, Team Aruba is hoping for a little more consistency in their program.

“Our program never lacks for hard work and effort,” relayed driver Trevor Eman. “But racing also takes a good bit of luck and that has been on a major pendulum swing for us this year. Hopefully it will swing back our way this weekend and stay there.

“We are very much looking forward to being at US 131 again. It’s a great facility, an awesome stop on the tour and a great place for us to redeem ourselves after Virginia.  Jason Peterson [track manager] does a wonderful job at his facility, and we are sure he will be hosting a great track this weekend. Together with the outstanding work of the Traction Twins, we plan on demonstrating a top notch performance for the fans at the race, our sponsors and Alltel Wireless and also all the people of Aruba back home who follow our every run.”

A key component of the Team Aruba racing operation is their Jon Kaase power plant, which recently went back to the Kaase Racing Engines shop for a tune up.

“Our motor went back to the shop to be freshened up and Jon Kaase delivered us back an engine that we are confident is bad to the bone. With a fresh power plant and the Jerry Haas built Wireless Mustang, we plan on luck swinging our way and taking it all the way four rounds into the winners circle.”
