Spent Friday and Sunday in Pomona. On Friday I met with top fuel funny car driver Paul Lee. Richard and I interviewed him for an upcoming issue of MoparMax. He’s a fascinating man, has an MBA from Wharton, a JD law degree, is President of McLeod clutches and drives a funny car for Jim Dunn racing. He’s also a Mopar fan, he’s building an outrageous 1970 ‘Cuda and his brother has one of the most original Superbirds ever found.
The racing was great! Matt Hagan won the funny car championship and also won the event throwing down a 4.009 in the final! Del Worsham won his first Top Fuel championship, and Eddie Krawiec won the Pro Stock bike championship. Can’t wait for the Winter Nationals to kick off the 2012 season!
