Titan Grabs Second Win In A Row!!
Summer isn't the only thing bringing the heat in 2010. The Team from Titan Motorsports was at it again in Martin Michigan for the ADRL Summer Drags VI. Coming off of a strong win in Virginia and recently joining the Mickey Thompson 3 Second Club, Titan and the Scion came through with another dominating performance.
After a few rain delays in Martin on Friday, the track was finally cleared to begin the qualifying runs. In the first qualifying session, Gary White and the boys were just warming up, yet set the precedent for the afternoon by laying down a strong first run of 4.010 at 187.77mph, good enough for the number one qualifying position. In round two Gary nailed a career best trap speed with his 3.958 at 187.98mph! The third and fourth sessions were canceled due to more rain. Titan remained the number one qualifier.
In the first round of eliminations Titan had a bye run, and threw down a half-hearted 5.057 at 113.22mph, just enough to get the Scion down the track. In round two, the Scion was staged with L.J. Wood Jr. Gary moved around a bit initially, but wrangled it back together for a 3.985 at 188.06mph giving L.J. a good look at the Scion's tail lights. For round three we were paired with the always capable Spiro Pappas, who had also joined the 3 Second Club back in August. Pappas had hurt a piston in the previous round, and their team had to hustle to get it lined up in time. Once the lights dropped, Spiro got caught sleeping a bit, and Gary took advantage, rocketing the Scion straight down the groove, posting a 3.983 at 187.28mph and solidifying lane choice over Billy Glidden in the final round. Ahh, the final round. Just Billy and Gary. We've seen this before. The stage is set. The cars are lined up. Glidden gets out of the gate first, but White reeled him in by half track posting a 3.934 at 190.37mph to Billy's 4.043 at 179.65mph for Titan's second win in a row.
The Titan Scion has always been consistent, and now it's just getting faster. Titan has been raining 3's since Valdosta and the team showcased its consistency once again in Michigan, running 3's in all meaningful elimination rounds. Look for the team to continue the success as Titan heads to Kansas in July looking for a possible three-peat in XTF. We'll see you at the races!
