Albright, Cultrera & Serra Secure Wins at Mickey Thompson $40 Grand Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park
Norwalk, OH – Some of the best bracket racers in the country fired their engines for the annual Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels $40 Grand Nationals presented by Hughes Performance, Sept. 3-5, 2021 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
Among those powering down a perfectly-prepared track was Adam Albright of Fremont, Ohio, who was resolute through several rounds of eliminations on his way to recording a .007 reaction time and a 5.72 elapsed time in his Nova to take the win over Travis Colangelo and his dragster for the Friday, Sept. 3 running of the event. The total payout for the event was an incredible $262,875, and Albright earned $15,000 of it, while Colangelo earned $7,500 of it.
“Winning last night hasn’t really set in for me yet,” said Albright, whose Nova is powered by a 509 cubic-inch big-block Chevrolet built by Level Performance and backed with a Powerglide built by Fleenor Racing Transmissions. “I’m still trying to process it all. This race was a bucket list race of mine. The car was really good all night and I was decent when I had to be.”
