Joliet, IL isn't just famous for the Blues Brothers! There's also a whole lotta racin' going on!  Route 66 Raceway in the Chicago suburb was was fired up again last weekend with NMRA/NMCA Superbowl of Street Legal Drag Racing!

Team JLT Performance was in fine form with sponsored wins in JLT Equipped rides in Coyote Stock, Limited Street and Factory Stock!

In Limited Street, Brighton, Michigan's Samantha Moore scored her first win in the class with a blazing 8.87@152 and she drove around Sondra Leslie, who'd had the better leave.

Factory Stock honors went to Steve Higgins of Valparaiso, IN. Steve qualified in 4th spot but worked his way up the ladder to a holeshot win over Mike Bowen Higgins' .077 RT gave him the light although Bowen was quicker.

Finally, Coyote Stock, Carlo Sobrino's "Joker" had the last laugh once again as he makes it two in a row in the class. His 10.247@130.99 was not only enough for his second win but he showed his "why so serious" side and got to work on clinching the Super Bowl title over Haley Burkhammer, NMCA's Chevrolet Performance Stock winner. Check out the new hardware Carlos took home!

Up next.....Team JLT Performance heads to Bowling Green, KY for the 21st Annual NMRA All Ford Nationals September 26-29! We'll see you there and once again congrats to all our JLT Equipped racers!
