It’s been a big year for Team Aruba’s Trevor Eman. In May he graduated from Central Florida University. Shortly after that, at the ADRL Spring Drags, Eman and team scored their first Extreme Pro Stock win. But perhaps Eman’s most momentous event came last weekend when he tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Nicole Habibe.
The two said I do on July 27th in their home country of Aruba, and while the celebration was given the attention it was due, the newlyweds quickly bid goodbye to their home, family and friends to travel abroad. The new Mr. and Mrs. were not headed for a honeymoon, however, but to Memphis, Tn. to compete in the ADRL Memphis Drags IV.
“Our wedding day was just awesome,” told Eman. “Everything went better than we could have hoped for. Just like when we achieved our first win in Pro Stock, our wedding day is one I will cherish forever.”
Quickly changing pace from saying “I do” to shifting gears, Eman took his Aruba.com Mustang, aptly decked with “Just Married” across the back window, down the Memphis strip to a 4.147 elapsed time. This was good enough for fifth after one round of qualifying. In round two, Eman and team picked up the pace to a 4.115, maintaining their qualifying position, but putting themselves less than two hundredths off the top pace.
Extreme Pro Stock will have one more qualifying pass tomorrow before eliminations. The newlyweds and the entire Aruba.com gang will be looking to make tomorrow another memorable day, adding to the excitement of their incredible 2013 year.
