RACER SPOTLIGHT: GARRETT QUINLAN
After racing in the Pro division for quite a number of years with a Bantam roadster, Garrett Quinlan made the decision to purchase a dragster and join the ranks of Super Pro. The Pepsi Nightfire was a very significant weekend for the Quinlan family. He not only earned his first Super Pro victory, but he won it on the single biggest night of the season at Firebird. Winning the $7,500 Bracketeer grand prize, big check and title on Saturday night of the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals was an extraordinary feat, a dream of countless racers. His car worked flawlessly and he was able to edge out Jake Neibauer from Billings in a classic "open wheel" versus "door car" final. Congratulations to Garrett and his entire family `n friends for winning the big one. Given the consistency of his Cobalt Off-Road Center ride, we wouldn't doubt all of us will be seeing more him visiting victory lane at future events.
