Haney adds Pesz and Riesterer to Pro Mod effort in ADRL
Big changes are in store for Keith Haney Racing drivers Keith Haney and Monroe Guest heading into this weekend's ADRL Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags VI presented by Mickey Thompson at Summit Motorsports Park.
Haney has brought in two of the ADRL's best, Brandon Pesz and Doug Riesterer, to make the tuning calls on their Chevy Camaros, with which they will make the switch to the ADRL's Pro Mod class this weekend.
"It's a tougher class to race in that's for sure," Haney said. "It's where we've wanted to race all long, but we never thought we had cars that were competitive enough to make the eight-car elimination field.
"After one test session with Doug and Brandon we feel like we've got cars with a lot of upside."
Riesterer currently is second in the ADRL's Pro Nitrous class with two wins under his belt this season. Pesz is a top 10 contender in the Pro Extreme class.
"With our new crew chief and chassis chief, we feel like we've got cars that can not only qualify, but also win," Guest said. "We're so excited to have these guys on board to guide us through the next phase of Pro Mod racing."
The ADRL will run Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28-29, at the Norwalk, Ohio, track. [9/28/2012]
