Al “Dragster Slayer” Hampton on a rampage!

It all started with Al Hampton destroying the tranny in the Kondolay’s dragster last weekend. Then this week, Joe “Top Wop” Mura was stupid kind enough to offer up his Mullis digger for Hampton to run at MRP.  Turns out Hampton goes and blowed-up Mura’s trans too!  Nobody knows for sure, but we’re beginning to think that The Midget might just be thinking “Dammit, if I can’t have a dragster, then nobody can.

In allegedly unrelated news, the Kondolay’s are in a mad thrash this week repairing the wounded bullet from the dragster. The mill had lost some of it’s grunt, and after tearing the heads off, they found it had been bitten by some FOD (Foreign Object Damage).  They found damage caused by a chunk of 1/8″ allen key that—after bouncing around beating the bejesus out of everything—eventually lodged into the deck of the cylinder head.

To be clear, there is no proof that Hampton is actually responsible for hucking an allen key down the throat of the big block, but lets face it; it was an Allen key. Not a Jim key. Not a Steve key. Not an anybody-else-that-is-not-named-allen key.

So please, dragster drivers: be on the look out for disgruntled guy who appears to be smuggling bacon across his forehead. It just might be the Dragster Slayer looking for another victim.

You’ve been warned.
