Friday, Oct 3, 2008: Michigan native John Powers, a senior gear manufacturing engineer at GM Powertrain, won the last Quick 8 race of the year at Milan Dragway. In doing so, he jumped from third to first in points and won the 2008 Heads-up series sponsored by Aeroquip Performance.
Powers explained, “In qualifying, we ran two identical times of 6.91@ 200 mph, placing us second. Then, we picked up with a .029 sec (RT) and a 6.89 in the first round to put me in the semi-finals. The temps went down to 37 degrees F, and we got down the track better than the competition with a 6.95 to put us in the finals. I sealed the deal with an on-and-off the throttle 7.21 in the final to capture my first win of the year. By doing so, I won the Series championship with that round win. I’d like to thank Wilson Manifolds, Milan Dragway, Ypsilanti Design & Fabrication, Aeroquip Performance Products, my crew, my friends & family, and my fellow competitors for making this such an exciting season for our team.”
