Hector's Final Pass
Hector Urias' car makes its final pass at Irwindale. Family and friends
gathered to remember Hector on what would have been his 49th birthday. Over
$3100 was collected for his wife Sandy and their new adopted baby... a
touching and moving tribute to the man who touched so many hearts and
spirits. You will be missed, amigo.
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch
Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"

RED BARON "The Fastest VW on Earth"
Irwindale California 3.14.2010 Drag Day, goes 121mph in the 8th mile. I
followed the crew back to the pits where they found a bent pushrod. Still
a great job and a great car. Legendary.
Hector Urias last pass at Irwindale 9-16-10. This was the memorial pass for
"The Worlds most Interesting Man". Hectors brothers were leading in his
oval window street car. On the return road, Ray in his bad a ss dually with
the rest of Hectors posse play one last song for the true VW legend. R.I.P
Hector. We miss you.
