Glidden Scores First Turbo-Powered Pro Mod Win

Billy Glidden raced to victory Sunday in the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing, presented by The Real Pro Mod Association, at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park is the sixth of 10 Pro Mod events on the 2016 season.

Glidden won with a 5.893-second pass at 245.63 mph in his Precision Turbo 2014 Chevy Camaro when Bob Rahaim red-lit at the starting line in his late model TLC Waste Disposal Services Chevy Corvette in Sunday’s final.

“I didn’t feel any pressure,” said Glidden, son of legendary Pro Stock racer Bob Glidden, “I felt a lot more pressure in the 70s, 80s, and 90s when dad was racing. Inside the car I really just don’t get nervous.”

Glidden qualified 10th and got past Von Smith and Mike Janis on Sunday en route to his first win of the season, second of his career. Glidden is sixth in the points standings.

Rahaim, who was the No. 1 qualifier, sprinted past Steve Whitelely and two-time world champion Rickie Smith in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.

R. Smith is still first in the points standings. R. Smith is followed by defending world champion Troy Coughlin in second and Rahaim in third.

The NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series continues with the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, Aug. 3- Sept. 5.
