There are those moments in drag racing that can make any racer question his sanity. Then there are those moments like Bernie Polvadore had this past weekend at the CarQuest Nationals in Phoenix, Arizona.
Having recently secured a marketing partnership with 3 Amigos Tequila, Polvadore and his new teammates, son Seth and veteran racer Scott Rollins, were looking to make a statement. Their mission was successfully accomplished as the elder Polvadore was able to secure his first NHRA national event win.
Fighting his way through seven rounds of competition, Polvadore and his ’93 Pontiac Grand Prix took down five time champion Brad Pierce in the finals. Polvadore had an immediate advantage by cutting a near perfect 0.004 light as compared to Pierce’s 0.019. At the stripe, the two Super Gas competitors were separated by a mere 0.0056 seconds, or approximately fourteen inches.
All of us here at Dream Chaser Racing would like to congratulate Bernie on his victory. In addition, we would like to thank 3 Amigos Tequila for their support and partnership!
