Rapisarda Autosport International pilot Dom Lagana led all the way to crush Al –Anabi gun Khalid alBalooshi in first round then fell to 2012 NHRA champ Antron Brown after smoking the tyres in the quarter final of Top Fuel at the Southern California Automobile Club Finals in Pomona.
“I’m extremely proud of my boys and how they performed over the weekend,” said team owner Santo Rapisarda.
“This is only our second NHRA meeting this year and to run our fastest time ever, qualify10th and make it to second round is a great effort. My sons work well as a team and have developed a strong relationship with our driver Dom Lagana. If the track is hot cold or whatever they take it in their stride.”
Rapisarda’s sentiments was echoed by the recently recruited Lagana.
“We forget Santino and Santo are only 21 and they are going up against Americans who have been tuning and racing week in week out for years. Since they returned to America in September we have done around 14 runs only and have gone up against some teams that have racked up close to 100 runs in 2014."
