EFI RenegadeBrian Mitchell doesn't usually have the best luck at Bradenton. This year, things were a little different. "I couldn't have asked for a better weekend," he says. "Nice, warm weather; clear skies; and a car that worked perfect. It's rare to have the Florida race go so smooth." Brian didn't change up his program for 2009. He still relies on Cleveland Performance and Vortech superchargers for the power, and a ProFormance Transmissions C4 with a Frank Lupo Dynamic converter to transfer the power. Though his old car with Dan Rawls at the wheel trumped him for the top spot for qualifying, Dan hurt the old car and never made it to Sunday. That left the door open for Brian, and he made the most of the opportunity by taking the win over Chris VanGilder in the final.
