Martin Stamatis' top fueller firstname.lastname@example.org mph in-car video
Martin Stamatis and his Read racing top fuel dragster team ran their
personal best time at Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID) recently
at the 2008 Summernationals held over February 15 and 16.
After qualifying third in the strong ten-car field with a email@example.com mph
(503 kmh), Stamatis knocked out Terry Sainty in the first round with a
5.00, which left him up against Darren Morgan for the second round.
With a feeling of déjà vu after having Morgan knock him out in the second
round held in Perth just two weeks prior, the team were pumped to try and
level the score, and with conditions perfect for drag racing, it was
Stamatis this time who won with a fabulous firstname.lastname@example.org mph (529 kmh)
blast, which was also low ET and top speed for the event.
The run cemented Stamatis a final round appearance, and the team tried to
back up their awesome 4.57 run for a new national record in the final,
however the blower belt unfortunately came off on their last pass, but
their 4.80 was still good enough to win the event.
After running the 4.57, Stamatis commented in a post run interview that at
half track, he was wondering what on earth "Cav" (Robert Cavagnino, his
Crew Chief) was doing to him as the car hauled its way to nearly 530 kmh!
Well done to the entire Stamatis team, to Read racing for providing a great
car, and to WSID for yet another great memorable pass in Australian drag
Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and
only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a
grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike
Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan
them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi
failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a
fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous
Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle.
The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot
rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer,
Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every
compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out!
Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December
5th with a new video premiering each day!

This is Phil Read's last test pass (after the finals) at WSID from the 2009
Nitro Champs. While he shut off early, the footage gives a different
perspective of the engine and ride from the on-board camera mounted on top
of the roll cage looking backwards.
