Frank Capone of Team HeadBlade/Capone Racing finally quit showing off his Wally from Norwalk and was ready to race again this weekend, but sometimes things change. One of Capone’s long time buddy’s, Jamie Filosa passed away on Tues after a 2 1/2 yr battle with esophageal cancer. Jamie leaves a wife and 7 year old son, James . Capone will be with the Filosa family this weekend as Jamie is laid to rest.
“We are prepared to go to the AMRA event at Mason Dixon Dragway, Hagerstown, Md. however my place is here this weekend. The team will carry on and we will be at full capacity this weekend. Shaun Reno will be making a special guest appearance on the Team HeadBlade/Pro Mod bike, with his former crew chief Rickey Stewart on hand for extra tuning expertise for which I am very grateful.”
Capone goes on to say, “Team HeadBlade/Capone Racing will be well represented with Holly Keller of South FL who’ll be on the Pro Gas bike. Although we tried at AMRA Baton Rouge, the rain kept us from seeing exactly how things would work. My crew is the best and we need for Holly to have some seat time. We’re hoping for good weather, great lights, and results.”
