Team Aruba Prepares for Upcoming Georgia Drags, Thankful for Overwhelming Fan Support

UNION, NORTH CAROLINA — Despite their successful test run of 6.31 at 218mph before  last weekend’s Mountain Motor Pro Stock Association (MMPSA) inaugural race, Team Aruba was plagued with unfortunate bad luck as tire problems kept the team from performing optimally. “Off-course, we were trying new things to make our car go faster,” says Team Aruba driver, Trevor Eman. “But we ended up getting lost in our new changes, and didn’t get a handle on them until the first round of eliminations.”

Team Aruba quickly determined that their problems resided within their tires. “We pinpointed the issue, realizing that our problems stemmed from our tires. When we replaced them, we were able to get back down the track.”

Though The Rock presented its fair share of challenges, Team Aruba thoroughly enjoyed their time at the MMPSA season opener. “It was great to finally get the new MMPSA season underway,” Trevor comments. The return to quarter-mile track racing and familiar faces brought nostalgia to the team. “It was great to compete against teams that we used to race against while we were under the IHRA. They are a really great group of people, and the competition that comes with racing against them is just awesome.”
