Capone Racing, Bammer Racing and Team HeadBlade No Problem at No Problem
October 31, 2012
No Problem Dragway in Belle Rose, LA made it no problem for Capone Racing and Team HeadBlade at the AHDRA Cajun Nitro Nationals.
In the AHDRA Pro Mod class, Shaun Reno was number 1 qualifier with Frank Capone qualifying 2nd and in the Finals on Sunday it was the infamous match up of teammates. Capone had lane choice and Reno was coming off a buzz of breaking the 1/4 mile mph record at 164. 01. Capone smoked Reno on the lights and took one of those wins where non-drag racing folks go---huh? On a hole shot, Capone took the win light with a 8.424 ET at 155.19 mph over Reno's 8.343 ET at 163.95 mph. What a race and what a fun weekend with AHDRA in the Bayou country.
Prior to heading South for the last time of the year, Capone had just picked up the new NHRA Pro Gas trailer. Thanks Gil and Dave at Atlantic Coast! All in anticipation of 2013, more broad hints soon.
After the race, Hurricane Sandy has modified everyone's plans to go back north. Our thoughts are with the Capone and Reno families as they head back to a storm ravaged area. Please check out both teams websites and facebook for some great pictures. We'll send more images soon.
