Sullivan said “it feels good to finally get the car to show the potential that we know it has. We struggled all last year, we changed a lot of stuff, including transmissions, fuel system, ratios, but we finally feel like we have a handle of it.”

“During Super Chevy Memphis, we had been struggling all day with tire shake. We got a handle of it in the finals and ran the quickest 60ft of the weekend, at .920.”

“It was a fun weekend, but to win Super Chevy right here in my backyard at home is pretty neat.”

Sullivan was quick to thank Baskins Truck Sales, M&M Transmissions, PTC Converters, Nitro 2 Go Beverages, and Schaeffer’s Oil by Greg.

The next event for Sullivan Racing is the Spring Nationals “Night of Fire” at Atmore Dragway on May 6, 2017.
