Frigon Racing Does it Again
August 11 - It was supposed to be just a mundane day of testing for the Frigon Racing, Competition Wedge Engines sponsored Spitzer PTO dragster. With a bunch of off season changes, the team showed up Sunday, August 11th to do some 1/8th mile testing for their Pro Top Outlaw series and Asphalt Wars racing. After making a warm up run, the team then tested ESTA's new 330' concrete pad and the results proved favorable. Without making a single change to the car's setup, the team made two blistering 3.81 passes in a row with almost exact 190 mph speeds each pass.
Rumor has it that car sponsor, Competition Wedge Engines' Todd Tuohey "may have" had a hand in the decision to stretch it out more than 660'. After a brief team rally, car owner Bob Frigon decided to make a 1000' blast and see what it would hold. The decision was made for 1000 ft. apparently as it was still a whole new combination and they haven't "stepped on it" yet, as they say.
