Elma, NY – It’s been three weeks since Mike Janis has made a pass down a drag strip. It’s the longest break of the season for the veteran engine builder from Lancaster, NY and as far as his team is concerned it’s been too long.

“It’s weird. We have been so busy running two cars this year that a break no matter how short seems like forever. We’ve been in GO mode all year and while this short break was well needed it’s great to be heading back to the track,” said team owner/driver, Mike Janis.

The last time Janis took a trip down a drag strip was a scheduled test session after the NHRA Norwalk event.  Alan Johnson Performance Engineering’s Alan Johnson and Terry Morrow wanted to gain further data on their new 5300 engine that Janis is running.

“We are very lucky to be working with Alan, Terry and Rick. This has been a great experience for us and I think our latest test session has us moving closer to using the full potential of the new AJPE 5300. This engine, along with the chassis from Andy McCoy has us very excited,” said Mike Janis.

Janis and the other ADRL Pro Extreme drivers will have three shots at qualifying on Friday with one more on Saturday before eliminations begin.

The Ford Drive One Summer Drags VII are held July 15th and 16th at US 131 in Martin, Michigan.
