It was a pleasure to see Fredy Scriba make his debut in the Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified class and your agent certainly wasn’t surprised with how Scriba performed at last weekend’s U.S. Drags V at Virginia Motorsports Park.
Racing for the first time in the new class, Scriba had an impressive run for his first ADRLvictory, knocking out stalwarts Rickie Smith and Todd Tutterow in Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified to gain a memorable first ADRL victory.
Scriba went 3.981 at 188.25 to beat Smith, the No. 1 qualifier, in the semifinals and then stepped up with a 3.972 at 188.96 to chase down Tutterow and win by two feet in the finals.
Racing in a final of his fourth different class, Tutterow knocked out Jeff Naiser and points leader Mike Castellana â€“ handing him his first ADRL loss in 2012 â€“ but Scriba overcame Tutterowâ€™s starting-line advantage.
It was memorable enough beating a pair of standout racers to get the win, and Scriba also walked away impressed with the new Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified class.
â€œThis was really cool. It was definitely a tunerâ€™s weekend, but all the hard work we put in really paid off,â€ Scriba said. â€œIâ€™ve got a good group of guys and things really came together.
â€œWe had to play our own game and just run our race. We were running pretty consistent, going rounds and we just stuck to the gameplan. We had a lot of fun and Iâ€™m really glad they added this class. It’s a perfect fit for us and it turned into a great weekend.â€
