Las Vegas, Nv — Mickey Ferro and his RYCO Hydraulic Alcohol Funny Car Team are experiencing a storybook finale to the 2010 drag racing season. His team took home their fifth Wally in a row this past weekend at the Shortline Express sponsored Lucas Oil Pacific Division 7 drag race in Las Vegas.
At the end of qualifying on Saturday, Ferro’s team sat in the 5th position which paired them in first round against Jay Payne. Payne and Ferro have been competing against each other all year, both seeking the same result, Division 2 Championship and #2 in the National Points Championship chase.
“Every round at this race was huge” noted Ferro, “we didn’t get the data we wanted for the first qualifier when shake forced me to pedal the car. However, Anthony Terenzio is so good at reading the track and dialing the car, we ran solid numbers for the rest of the event.

WARTBURG, ONTARIO – Although he has driven several classes of drag cars, Scott Wildgust made the transition from door car to a dragster in fine fashion this season, placing second in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts with 1176 points, only two points out of first place.
“We had a great year,” said Wildgust, driver of the White and Wild Racing Top Dragster entry of himself and co-owner Bill White. “We had a great crew for the season, and Bill is a great partner.”
The former PMRA Pro Modified driver campaigned a 1957 Chevy in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series in 2009, but Wildgust and White put together a Top Dragster that was a strong and consistent contender.
