Team Aruba Gears Up for PDRA XPS Season with Florida Test Session
Courtesy of Lisa Collier
The Extreme Pro Stock team from 'The One Happy Island' of Aruba left its mark on the Mountain Motor
world in 2016. It was their best season yet, with a strong championship chase that earned driver
Trevor Eman and the team a solid second place finish. After a brief off season Team Aruba is back
in the states, prepping for another championship run in 2017.
With the International Hot Rod Association making drastic changes to its program this year and the
Professional Drag Racers Association welcoming Extreme Pro Stock back for a full schedule, Eman and
the Aruba.com Mustang will switch gears from quarter-mile to eighth-mile racing this season. The
team is currently testing at Bradenton Motorsports Park to prepare for the eight race PDRA
"We are excited to run the PDRA schedule this season," told Eman. "We've followed the series'
progress and see the strong fan support. They run on great tracks and running to the eighth-mile is
easier on our Aruba.com Mustang and Jon Kaase Engine.
"We had a phenomenal year last year and plan to pick up where we left off. The 2016 championship
was a near-miss for us for unfortunate reasons, so we have a little extra fire under us this
season. We hope to put that to good use and come out swinging."
Team Aruba will test in Bradenton before the PDRA season beings at the Southern Extreme Nationals
at South Georgia Motorsports Park, March 9-11. All PDRA events will be broadcast live on http://www.speedvideo.com/.
