Synoil Energy Services TAFC – Targets Texas
Top Alcohol Funny Car driver Greg Hunter is riding a wave of momentum into the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals this weekend after winning the recent Mission regional…..
Driving for Canadian Geoff Goodwin, Hunter earned the first NHRA event win of his alcohol racing career at the Mission, B.C. NHRA West Region event two weeks ago. Now he’s ready to go after his first national event win at Dallas.
“It was kind of surreal,” Hunter said of the Mission win. “Even though there was a low car count we felt that it didn’t really take away from the accomplishment. The cars we raced against were good cars and the new track surface at Mission was tricky. Once that place has some more runs on it it’s going to be a great track like it was.
“It was tough for everyone to get down the track last weekend. I’m just proud of how our team was able to overcome a little adversity. We hadn’t made it down the track going into the last qualifying session. It was stressful because we really wanted to do well there. With the track not being the greatest we decided to be extra careful. Ryan (Protz, tuner) did a great job and the whole team worked well to prepare the car for the conditions,” Hunter noted.
Greg Hunter and his Synoil Energy Services/Geoff Goodwin Racing teammates look to add a second win to their 2014 scorecards as they race at the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals at Texas Motorplex, Sept. 18-21. Hunter, who joined Geoff Goodwin Racing this year after two years in Top Alcohol Dragster competition, has never raced at the Fall Nationals.
“We have a lot of confidence going into Dallas. We feel that we can run with anybody. We’ve never been there but Dallas has the reputation of being a great racetrack so we’re looking forward to getting there and running some strong numbers and hopefully going deep into eliminations. There are a lot of the top cars and a ton of cars in general entered so we’ll have our work cut out for us,” admitted the Wyoming resident.
Hunter and team will be joined by Synoil Racing sponsors Twister Piling and MD Truck Repair, who are making the long trip down from the northwest. Prowler Contracting will be there as well as a new group, Catalytic Combustion Corporation.
