Family pride spurs Bishop into eliminations field

This article brought to you by:

Stuart Bishop has cemented his place in an extremely tough Top Doorslammer eliminations field in front of his proud daughter and wife today at the Castrol EDGE Winternationals.

 This weekend has been the first trip to a major drag racing event for Bishop’s wife Pedrica and four year old daughter Arabella, who watched on proudly as Bishop secured his spot in the field with a 6.08 second pass at 243.77 miles per hour.

The Top Doorslammer field was on track to be the quickest field for the category in the history of the ANDRA Pro Series, with Bishop’s bump spot of 6.08s coming in just over the record of 6.07s.

“I had my daughter Arabella and my wife Pedrica out here at the Raceway today and that was something really special for me – Arabella loved it!” said Bishop.

“It was a emotion packed day having some of the family here and it was a typical day of drag racing here at the same time– full of mayhem, seeing us go from fifth in the field to being on the bump and facing John Zappia in the first round.

“Tomorrow’s first round is sure to be high-octane – Zappia is fighting hard for the title and I certainly won’t be giving anything but my best, so it should be a great round of racing for the fans.”

Bishop and the Top Doorslammer field will be back on track tomorrow for the first round of eliminations at 11.30am, with the semi-finals taking to the track at 1.00pm and the finals from 3.00pm.
