Frank Capone cut an almost perfect light, .004 in the first round against team mate Shaun Reno to take a win and advance to the 2nd round on elimination’s on Sunday at the AHDRA Carolina Spring Nationals presented by Carolina Dealers Assoc. at a his favorite southern track, Rockingham Dragway, outside Rockingham, NC.
But trying to be perfect is always a challenge and in the 2nd round Capone’s aspiring perfection cut the light a little too close and out popped the red light with a – 026, what a difference 2/100 of a second makes. The AHDRA Pro Mod qualifying ladder was the tightest field ever with less than 1/2 second separating 8 bikes.
Disappointed? Sure, it’s always a longer haul home without a new trophy, however, Capone still maintains the #1 position in points. Even he admitted that it’s going to be a long, and if this race is any indication, a very competitive season and he’ll be ready.
Come see Capone Racing’s Pro Modified drag bike at the closest track on the AHDRA circuit for him and his fans, May 19-20th at Atco, NJ for the AHDRA Northeast Nationals.
