Street Car Super Nationals Nov 2009 Las Vegas!  A 37 car field.  Rick Snavely qualified # 2 with a 6.62 @ 218mph  the # 1 spot went to  Billy Glidden with a 6.58 @ 204 mph . Great heads up racing ! Rick also had the high mph for the event 223mph. After only driving the  the car for 3 other test sessions we would say this event was a super success.

For the next few races Rick Snavely has been asked to drive the Garrett Turbo Mustang. Steve and Gill Bothwell,Karl Wahlers  and this entire team are Highly Educated and Very Dedicated Racers .We think this will be a perfect match for Rick . We want to thank everyone involved for this opportunity.  See ya at the races !
