Larry Brancaccio Makes Quick 8 in Norwalk

Published on May 22, 2013 by   ·   No Comments


Larry “Drums” Brancaccio and Bammer Racing shook out all the cobwebs for their first event of the season.

Not only did they perform with their standard flash, they made the quick eight out of 15 of America’s finest nitro powered Top Fuel monsters at the NHRA -Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series “The Mickey Mart Rewards Cavalcade of Stars presented by Budweiser” at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park, Norwalk, Ohio,

Crew chief, Michael Hopkins had taken time to focus on some new tune up combinations and  remained hopeful that they’d done their job at home in prep work, but every racer and crew chief knows the proof of all the time, hard work and late nights comes down to a few precious seconds on the track. As always the crew and management at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park was right on top of things.

“We were thrilled with a 8 quick eight position for eliminations on Sunday. Things were going well and we got a little squirrely off the line against Douglas Horne. We knew he’s a hard competitor to get at the lights, but we ended up going to the center line and were disqualified by hitting a the foam blocks. We’ll disappointed but ready to go racing again,” said Hopkins.
