Vegas Hustler Wheel Stand
Mark Bishop hooks his Super Pro ET Dragster up a treat as he leaves the
line during Sunday evening at the 2009 Easter Thunderball at Santa Pod
Raceway UK. Mark normally has about 2 inches of wheels up when he runs so
this was a massive shock and caught him off guard. With a 60 ft time of
approximately one second there isn't much time to react. Chassis, steering
and wheels were damaged in the incident and Mark vows to be out again as
soon as funds allow. Ian Blackett

Mark was back out in action at the Eurpoean Finals.
Sunfire Wheelie & Crash at a Wheelie Contest
**** Please read the video notes! **** Rob LaCroix does a wheelie in his
Sunfire at the 2009 World Power Wheelie Championships in Byron, IL.
**** The people are clapping because this was expected. It is a wheelie
contest. This man is the wheelie champion of Canada, he always tries to
flip his car over backwards. This one did not comply. He won lots of $
for the most violent wheelie. He gets paid for special appearances at drag
races. He loves to perform like this for the crowd and expects them to
clap. I hope this helps everyone understand why people are clapping. ****
