B.C. TAD a Winner!


The British Columbia-based Top Alcohol Dragster owned by Hugh Ridley emerged victorious during the first Western NHRA Lucas Oil Regional Drag Racing Series event of the season held last weekend at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix.  With driver Ray Martin (Anchorage Alaska) at the controls – Ridley’s supercharged machine bested a star-studded TAD program that included a final round win over non other then defending NHRA World Champion Jim Whitely.   The Can-Am combo team qualified #3 for the event and beat the stalwart class cars of Chris Demke and Don St. Arnaud (Edmonton AB) while  advancing to the final round.    (Photo by:  Bob Johnson)
