Ronnie Diaz collected his first X275 win with his Modular-powered 1999 Mustang GT. The die-hard, never give up attitude carried him into the finals this past weekend at the Maryland International Raceway (MIR) X275 race. The MIR facility sits smack in the middle of the X275 hot zone of the Mid-Atlantic region. The track often times gets 20-plus cars for this exciting drag radial category. Diaz wheeled his black GT to the third spot on the qualifying list with an impressive 4.89 at 148 mph. He worked his way through the field and met up with Jason Smith and his top qualifying 2002 Camaro. Both cars rely on ProCharger F1X superchargers, making it all supercharged final round. Smith had mechanical issues and Diaz took the green for the win. Diaz won the battle but it was 3X NMRA champion Chris Little who won the war. Little won the MIR track championship in X275. The lime green coupe relies on a small-block turbocharged engine combination and was number 2 qualifier at the final MIR X275 point’s race of the year.
