Rowan "The Robot" Parlett started his career karting before becoming a PDRA Top Jr Dragster World Champion

In 2021, after making the switch to 8.90, Rowan tried his hand at PDRA, or Professional Drag Racing Association. It took him a couple races to get comfortable but by the third race in Ohio, Rowan was deadly on the tree and took home his first win earning him the nickname “The Robot”. The next race Rowan was able to double up and win again, propelling him into the points lead in his first PDRA season.

This stellar performance was able to qualify him for the first ever Summit Pro Stars invitation race where went trip zip in first round and on to win the $2,000 payday and Pro Stars Championship. Consistent performances at the final races of the season saw Rowan enter the World Finals with a mere 1 round lead. The Robot did his job and ended up winning the World Championship and even made it to the finals at the World Finals. After such an incredible season, Rowan was awarded the PDRA Sportsman Rookie of The Year.

Late race recap post from PDRA Racing in Ohio. Rowan's Racing was on fire all testing and although the robots driver rt staying in the double 00s for every pass the car slipped and was .072 to an .026 and dead in the water. The worst part is that pass Rowan was on the wheel and was .001. After looking at data we know the problem and how to fix it so ready for MIR.

Matt made some changes to get faster between the last race and this one, yet we missed the bump by .004 of a second with the bump now the fastest 64 car field for the third race in a row with a bump of 4.371!! Because of some broke cars he was able to be an alternate (which apparently means he get zero points even if he won, boo pdra). In first round he accidentally double bumped into the stage beam laid off with a .031 and couldn’t overcome his opponents .008.

Next stop is in a few weeks at our home track of Maryland International Raceway. Special thanks to Computech, VP Racing Fuels, NGK Spark Plugs and Mallory Logan for the pics.

So close. Yet so far away. We backed his tree off a bit to be safe and had an .017 light and under .002 for a 19 pack, just on the wrong side. We are sitting 31/35 and are confident we will improve next pass ... See MoreSee Less
