Melanie Salemi Scores $50K In 2021 Pro Mod Victory
A field of 50 Pro Mod drivers entered qualifying on Friday at the 50th annual Snowbird Outlaw Nationals presented by Motion Raceworks, and after five rounds of eliminations on Sunday, Melanie Salemi was left standing as the $50,000 winner of the Bradenton Motorsports Park event. In the final round, Salemi recorded a 3.65-second pass at 206.83 mph to defeat Ken Quartuccio and his 3.692 at 198.12.
“We really had a perfect day of racing,” said Salemi, who thanked the team’s sponsors, the G-Force Race Cars shop guys, and car owner Eddie Whelan. “Our crew worked flawlessly. We were missing Katey [Knight]. We weren’t the fastest car on race day, but I did my job when I had to and the crew had my back when I was a little late. It was a perfect day all around.”
