Mike Janis Attempts To Harness Horsepower In Tulsa
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. …Mike Janis and his Chevrolet CobaltTM sponsored by diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation will enter Tulsa Raceway Park, Tulsa, Okla., May 25, 26 and 27 for the inaugural Skull Shine Sooner Nationals.. His challenge will be harnessing the car’s horsepower and turning it into his first trip to Victory Lane this season.
"We spent a lot of time over the last month testing so we know that we have the power,” Janis said. “We just need to find a way to tame the power and put down on the track consistently so we can start making it into the later rounds and then on to the finals.”
