A very proud pappa
Dina at Maple Grove, in 2003
Ben at Indy (1996, left)- this is how the dragster looked in our first year of racing, with a high 14 second, stock motor.
Ben at TriState (right)- in 1997 we got paint and a high 10 second motor.
For 1999, we had Talisman Racing back-half the dragster and raise the cage. It weighed less, it flexed and the driver fit in it, again.
