Hoover Headlines Pro Mod Reunion Race Saturday at Farmington

Hoover-at-Farmington640This Saturday (May 25), Ed Hoover will lead a cast of Quick 8 Pro Mod all stars into Farmington Dragway for the inaugural Quick 8 Pro Mod Reunion race.

Hoover, who won the first-ever Farmington Quick 8 Cup back in 1990, is also credited with winning the first sanctioned Pro Modified event. This weekend Hoover will headline a Quick Eight Pro Modified field while driving Paul Trussell’s supercharged Chevrolet Camaro.

“Nothing could be better than to have one of the true pioneers of Farmington Quick 8 racing as apart of this special Reunion race” said former track owner and event co-promoter Mark Joyce. “Ed did a lot of winning back in the early ‘90’s not only at Farmington , but all over the south and me and Denise [co-promoter Tutterow] is proud to have him aboard for the event.”

Joining Hoover in the battle for the Quick 8 Pro Mod Reunion victory will be the Todd Tutterow along with  Galot teammate Kevin Rivenbark. It is undetermined at this time whether Tutterow will race his supercharged or turbo entry.

A score of other drivers will be battling for a $4,000.00 to win and $1,200.00 runner-up purse. Each semi-finalist will receive $1,000.00 and those who lose in the first round will earn $750.00.
