Elma, NY – Over the past ten years or so Mike Janis has become a household name when it comes to fast door slammers; he has won in both legal and outlaw trim but, this weekend he’ll try to do both at the same event.

 The ADRL has added legal Pro Mods to their U.S. Drags schedule in Dinwiddie, VA as an exhibition class. With the recent success of the addition of the Top Sportsman category legal Pro Mod racers hope the ADRL will give them another place to play.

 “It’ll be tough, running both cars at one event but with the help of the AJPE guys on the Duster I think we can make it work,” said Janis. “We’ve run two cars out of our camp before but always with another driver and another crew. This will be the first time we do this with one driver and crew for two cars. Luckily we have a little help when it comes to the Pro Extreme Duster from AJPE. I’m really excited to see what our Eaton Aeroquip Mustang does on an ADRL track. Having another venue to run the legal car is a huge plus for not only us racers; but the fans and our sponsors will also benifit,” said Janis.

 Virginia Motorsports Park holds fond memories for the Janis family as it was the sight of his first IHRA win in 2001 his first championship season.

 “I really like this track. Every time we come here I remember how tough it was all those years trying to just qualify for a national event and then grabbing the pole and winning my first national here made me believe that I could do this. In 2009 I took my first ADRL pole here too. This place holds a special spot with me,” said Janis.

 Mike Janis will receive four chances (in each class) at the Virginia Motorsports Park surface before Saturday eliminations. To follow the action check out or
