Mike Knowles and his “Blown Money” team will be back in action this weekend, competing in the Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified class at the ADRL Gateway Drags IV presented by CarSafe at Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis.
â€œItâ€™s been a few weeks between races and weâ€™re all ready to get back to it,â€ said team owner/driver Mike Knowles. â€œWeâ€™ve had the luxury to do some testing after our last event, thanks to Goodyear Tires.
“The compound they let us work with seems very promising. I feel that Goodyear has a good hold of what a blown Pro Mod needs and the new tires look like they can handle what we throw at them. I’m looking forward to running the new tire this weekend.”
Knowlesâ€™ â€œBlown Moneyâ€ team tested different tire packages with the help of Goodyearâ€™s sales account manager for Drag Racing, Bryce Jones, and three of Goodyear’s engineers. Jones was pleased with the results.
â€œWe are very excited by Mike’s test results.Â This new 34.5″ tire did all that we had hoped.Â Now we’re looking forward to see how Mike does with the tire in competition, said Jones.
Knowles and the rest of the ADRL Aeromotive Pro Modified teams are scheduled for three qualifying sessions on Friday, with one on on Saturday prior to the first round of eliminations.
