I insist; You drive!

Apparently, last weekend at Mission Raceway Park there was a little bit of car swappin’ going on!

First off, the Kondolay’s strapped blocks to the pedals and put a phone book under the seat cushion of Stephan’s digger so that “Little Al” Hampton would be able to see over the cowl. Once that was taken care of, Hampton jumped in and clicked off a 7.72 ET—good enough to upgrade his license! In the first round of Super Combo, Hampton—still in the dragster—was robbed when the sun reflecting off his shit-eating grin caused a red light.  The day could have ended much worse for him though when his boner got in the way of steering off track onto the return road. Boing!

Speaking of the Kondolays, Stephan predicted he’d win Super Pro and did just that on Saturday. But Sunday morning he beat up the transmission in the dragster and it was done for the weekend. In the second car swap of the weekend, Stephan jumped in Pete Bereditsch’s bitchin’ Camaro for Super Pro. Unfortunately, the old man’s tranny couldn’t take the beating and expired in the third round. When Stephan hit the burner, the car backed out of the beams for an automatic red light. Even with the loss, Stephan Kondolay is leading this seasons S/Pro points!

In other news, Zak Clarke is apparently tired of playing on the ‘slow’ side of the Door Slammer ladder. He plans on dominating the ‘Dingers with a little more grunt in the Beretta this year. Zak’s quote: “It’s got the chirp!” He’ll have the Beretta and it’s new big-inch bullet out this weekend at MRP. I wonder if Zak will need to change his pants after the first blast?

Oh yeah… did you hear the news? They found MacKenzie’s trailer! 😉

Just because I can

From the “Just because I can” department, this post is being made while eating breakfast at the Bread Garden. Technology rocks!

Apparently, Zak is in a mad thrash at MRP trying to get a replacement trans and converter in the Baretta to stay in competition today. Good luck buddy; if I could be there I would be!

Pro-Stock at MRP?

According to Larry Pfister over at Horsepower Heaven, there might be something a little extra testing out at MRP this weekend:

You might want to plan a trip out to MRP tomorrow [today] for the tnt as we hear a nitro hog or two may well be out along with a new Pro Stocker from south of the border. No idea if they may be staying the weekend, so plan your leisure time accordingly…

Team SIAH at R.O.C.

Zak sent this in via text message:

Ken “Numba 1” Orser, Joe “Top Wop” Mura, Stefan “The Robot” Kondolay and myself are en route to the NHRA Division 6 ET Finals in Boise, Idaho to represent Team On A Mission. Hopefully, one of us wins and earns a spot in the NHRA World Finals in Pomona, California!

Zak goes 2 for 2

National Dragster Challenge

Congrats go out to Surrey in A Hurry’s Zak Clarke! The guy just ran two classes at the much delayed 2007 National Dragster Challenge race at Mission Raceway Park and won them both!

Details are still coming in, but we know this: Zak took the win in Super Pro for the  ‘Digger Challenge, and he won Door Dinger a Canada West Doorslammer race held over from last year. I hate to jinx it by saying this, but that makes his 17th consecutive undefeated round in Door Slammer!

Man… if that’s not enough to get me off my ass and finally post something, I don’t what is. Great job Zak!
