STEVE EASTON TARGETS NIGHT UNDER FIRE FOR CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT
NORWALK, OH – Since his last visit to America’s Racetrack Australian tuner and racer Steve Easton has won races and continued to work with the Patriot Pro Mod team on improving its overall performance. This weekend at the Kelly Services Night Under Fire, the largest single day drag racing event in the country the former crewman for NHRA super star Courtney Force will continue to fine tune both this driver and tune-up. He will be vying for one of the eight available spots in the R&R Auto Body/DeCerbo Construction Rumble Wars Extreme 8. With two qualifying runs on Saturday, August 11, the young racer from Down Under knows he will have his hands full against many other Pro Mod racers.
“We have been testing for a while this year and a few weeks ago we made it to the “B” Final at the PDRA Northern National Pro Mod Challenge at Dragway 42,” said Easton. “I think this Patriot Pro Mod team is really coming together and we are excited about the Night Under Fire. That is a really special event where fans can see a little bit of everything. We are really proud to represent our sponsors and the Pro Mod fans at the race.”
Qualifying will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. and only the quickest eight drivers will qualify for the show which will kick off at 7 p.m. Pro Mods will be the first cars down the track and Easton would love to be a part of that spectacle.
“I just love racing this Patriot Pro Mod Corvette,” added Easton. “I haven’t been behind the wheel at a race in a while so my excitement level couldn’t be higher. Driving a Pro Mod is like nothing you can experience. There is so much going on and you are just flying down the track. It is an experience you really can’t explain to people and give them the full picture. The show at Summit Motorsports Park will be something you will never forget as well.”
Since last year Easton has continued to expand his role with the Patriot Pro Mod team to help improve the team’s 1963 Corvette performance with the AJPE 521ci Hemi. He has been involved with the team for about three years and has been instrumental in the improved performance of the race car.
