Last weekend, the Jim DeFrank and Sons racing team attended an NHRA Lucas Oil Series racing event in Chandler, Arizona. It was a double event weekend, which meant there was two separate eliminators that would be taking place over the 4-day event. Both Jimmy and Tony DeFrank competed at the events in Super Stock and Stock Eliminator, respectively. The race team braved the 105+ degree temperatures all weekend and were able to have a success trip to Arizona.
In the first event, Jimmy qualified well and ended up getting the event win on Friday night. Tony, competing in the California Car Cover COPO Camaro for the first time, made it to the 4th round of eliminations on Friday night. During Saturday's eliminator, Jimmy again made it to the final round, but lost a close race to finish as the runner-up. Tony, lost in the 3rd round of eliminations of Stock Eliminator.
Thank you to the support from Lucas Oil Products, K&N Air Filters and California Car Cover for helping the team have a great showing in Chandler, Arizona. The racing team will finish the 2021 season at a few divisional and nationals meets in Las Vegas and Pomona in the coming weeks.
