Glidden and Moyer win at the ADRL season opener on Mickey Thompson tires
Bill Glidden and Todd Moyer have made an impressive season start at the opening round of the ten-race 2009 National Guard ADRL tour beginning March 6-7 at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas, in the Safety-Kleen Dragapalooza V. Bill Glidden scored his fifth national event win, and Todd Moyer qualified number one and claimed a $5,000 cash prize for being the first Extreme 10.5 driver to run faster than 185 miles per hour. Glidden, however, pulled ahead during eliminations and earned the Minuteman title over defender Jake Carlton for the Extreme 10.5 Class win.
“The Bill Glidden racing team gives this racing program everything they have and their performance this past weekend was incredible,” said Carl Robinson, Motorsports Manager, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels. “We want to thank ADRL President and CEO Kenny Nowling and his staff for creating an incredible racing experience that brought 56,000 race fans out on Saturday alone!”
“Winning at the first event of the season was very exciting for us,” stated Bill Glidden. “This competition gets tougher all the time and we could not have done it without our Mickey Thompson tires and wheels.”
“It was thrilling for us to see these racers perform at top speeds on Mickey Thompson tires,” said Ken Warner, VP Sales & Marketing, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels. “Being there when Billy earned his fifth national event title, and when Todd achieved an explosive top speed of over 187 miles per hour on Mickey Thompson tires was incredible.”
