Beavers on the Road...
Franklin DiBartolomeo wins!!
Summer Nationals - Englishtown NJ

  

Appearing in his first final round at an NHRA national event, the K&N Supernationals in Englishtown , New Jersey , DRC Race Products/ Drag Racing Action Magazine team driver Franklin DiBartolomeo grabbed all the gusto he could, scoring the big win for himself and the Beaver Springs, Pennsylvania-based team.

After wading his way through six grueling rounds of competition in the Super Comp class, the 22 year old engineering student at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York pulled to the starting line for the final round with a little bit of anticipation.

“I really wasn’t that nervous all day,” he said, “but pulling up there for the final round with all the photographers and thousands of people watching, I just knew I didn’t want to lose.”

The 2000 NHRA Division 1 Jr. Dragster Champion now joins his father John, a three-time national event champion himself, in adding to the team’s NHRA national event trophy case. Franklin also competed this past weekend in the team’s Stock Eliminator Chevy Nova. An untimely first round red light by two-thousands of a second derailed his chances in that class, but he more than made up for it with his Ed Quay -built dragster.

“Two years ago he missed winning the divisional championships by two points,” says John DiBartolomeo, “and he was real disappointed. But I told him he just had to keep on trying. It just proves that perseverance usually wins out in the end.”
