Mike Castellana knew heading into the 2012 ADRL Pro Mod season that he had a great car, a great crew chief and a great crew, but even he didn’t expect to be undefeated after starting from the number-one position at every one of three races held so far this year.
“Yeah, it’s pretty wild, but Shannon (Jenkins, crew chief) and my guys, they just get the job done,” the native New Yorker said after steering his nitrous-boosted 2012 Camaro to a 3.847-seconds win at 195.42 mph over Mike Janis and his supercharged 2010 Mustang in the Pro Mod final for the ADRL Norteast Drags II at Maple Grove Raceway.
The final-round pass was Castellana’s best in eliminations and nearly matched his 3.845 top qualifying time. Janis started from the sixth spot in the eight-car field and ran 3.915 at 193.10 in the final.
Castellana’s streak is destined to end at the next ADRL event, however, as he’ll miss attending the June 1-2, Gateway Drags IV in St. Louis due to attending his daughter’s graduation ceremonies that weekend.
