Joey Gladstone didn't win the race, but he did set both ends of the Pro Street record
The DME team of riders Joey Gladstone, Jason Dunigan, Terence Angela and Ehren Litten rolls into Maryland International Raceway this weekend after winning Orient Express Pro Street at the Exoticycle/Roaring Toyz Spring Cup race in Valdosta, setting both ends of the record (6.905 at 215.51 mph with Gladstone) in the process.

Those records may be short lived, as perfect racing weather is forecast for the always meticulously prepped MIR quarter mile. The MIRock Superbike Series Spring Nationals there might see the world’s first true 6.80something Pro Street pass, and you can bet that DME will be working at it as hard as anyone. Tuner Andy Sawyer will be pack as much boost into the Skip Gladstone-built engines as their street-legal tires can stand, while Dimey Eddinger oversees the whole operation.
Terence Angela loves to win the big ones, and the Spring Cup was no exception. PHOTOS
Angela took the win in Valdosta, and you can bet that he feels very comfortable at MIR as well. Last time there he won Pro Street’s richest purse—the $10,000 Battle Royale. Defending Pro Street champion Gladstone may have to summon his old wrestling skills to keep Angela and teammates out of the winners circle for this one.
