Salemi Looking to Rebound for US 131 Summer Drags

Melanie Salemi, driver of the Pro Boost 68 Firebird Pro Mod, is looking to get back to early season form. Salemi carded a runner up finish at the season opening race in Tulsa, Oklahoma and also ran a personal best of 3.78 at 196 mph. During the following two races, the Buffalo, NY team suffered two first round loses although qualifying in the top half of the field at both events.

Jon Salemi stated, “We had some parts failures and some self inflicted mechanical issues that a team will have from time to time. Hopefully we have put all of that past us and we can start making clean productive runs again. We’ve proven we can win in one of the most competitive categories in door slammer racing”.

This is one of the closest events to home for the Melanie Salemi Motorsports team on the PDRA tour and the team is looking forward to having friends and family attend this event. “Not many family members or friends have seen me compete since I’ve started running Pro Mod and this weekend hopefully they will get a chance. It’s always nice to showcase all of the team’s hard work for family and friends”.
