Titan Motorsports sets new National ET record
April 17, 2005 � Brad Personett and the Titan Motorsports team set a new National ET record at the 3rd Annual Nitto NHRA Sport Compact Nationals at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, NV, held April 14 � 17.
Personett piloted the Titan Motorsports Toyota Celica Pro RWD car to a 4th qualifying position with a 6.757 @ 211.66 MPH on Saturday. Sunday�s first round of eliminations would see a blistering 6.524 @ 217.04 MPH pass to defeat Abel Ibarra, the quickest and fastest pass in NHRA Sport Compact history.
Brad needed to run a 6.589 @ 214.87 or better to back-up both ends and make official the new national ET and MPH records. Unfortunately Personett�s Toyota Celica shook the tires in the semifinal round, killing his ET and giving the win to Stephan Papadakis, but still running a 6.802 @ 216.93 to back-up the national speed record.
