eBay Motors Powers HOT ROD Drag Week Presented by Gear Vendors Overdrive.

Day 1 of HOT ROD Drag Week 2021 was held at the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan. Favorite and 2019 winner Tom Bailey failed to show with his new car for this event, but Unlimited contender Dave Schroeder appeared with a completely new car to replace his 1966 nitrous Corvette from previous years. On his shakedown pass, the 2019 C7 Corvette went mid-6s before getting out of the groove and lifting.
