UNION, S.C. --

Fans of the American Drag Racing League will be happy to know that the smiling faces and palm tree adorned pit area of Team Aruba will be back on tour for 2012, giving fans a taste of the Aruban paradise this team calls home. Also as in previous years, fans can learn more about booking their own dream getaway at each ADRL event.

Driver Trevor Eman and the entire crew are excited to be back for another year and continue building their program. Although the team may be looked at as an underdog compared to some of the giants of Extreme Pro Stock, each year the team grows in confidence and strengthens their assault on the competition.

"We're thrilled to be back under the Aruba banner to compete in the ADRL again," told Eman. "We love to tell people about our home country and encourage them to take the vacation of a lifetime, and to be able to do that through this racing platform is an opportunity we're very grateful for. Alltel Wireless will also be on board with us again this year. We're keeping much of the same things in place and looking to build on our knowledge and successes from last year. This team has a huge amount of potential, and we hope to unleash more of it in 2012."

Team Aruba will field their stunning Jerry Haas built Mustang with a Jon Kaase Ford power plant once again providing the muscle.

"Kaase has been working really hard during this off season finding any improvements he can, and we can't wait to see how well his efforts have paid off," added Eman. "We want to give those Chevy guys a run for their money, and we're depending on Jon Kaase to find every little horsepower he can in that big 825 Ford Hemi. Our Mustang is also updated with the latest in clutch and drive train innovation.

"We'll be testing these updates and preparing for the season during a week-long test session at Bradenton Motorsports Park beginning on Monday [March 5th]. The guys at Bradenton are really nice folks and always have a killer track to run on. It's been our location for pre-season testing for the past five years now.

"This Team is excited that racing season is upon us and it's time to get back to the track. We're hoping to get a lot accomplished in this test session and be ready to give it all we've got when Houston gets here. Our fans are some of the best out there and our goal is to give them a win or two this year. We're certainly not afraid of hard work, and our crew has the talent, so hopefully we'll get a little luck this year and score a Minute Man for our fans and for Aruba."
