   Mark Wins 2010 Madi Gras Nationals

Mark Powers - 423C

NHRA Super Comp / IHRA Quick Rod

After bracket racing from 1998 thru 2007 we made a change to our objectives and focused on running Dvisional and National Events in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisianna. In 2008 we teamed up with Rick Pierson and have been very sucessful over the past 3 years runinng either Quick Rod at the IHRA events or SuperComp at the NHRA events. We ended 2009 with a runner up finish at the NHRA O'Rielly Nationals at the Texas Motorplex and then started off 2010 with my first National event win at the IHRA MadiGras Nationals in Baton Rouge, Louisianna. Below are some of the highlights over the past years of racing.
