JUPITER, Fl – Crazy? Maybe. But you can’t deny the drive that keeps the father and son duo of Mark and Jake Sanders on the fast track to success in this crazy game called drag racing.
That is because Mark, better known by his car name as “Mr. Explosive,” spent the past week traveling 3,828 miles from his home in Seattle through rain, snow and three times zones to Jupiter, Fla. to compete in this weekend’s Nitro Jam season opener at Palm Beach International Raceway.
Whether you know him as ‘Mr. Explosive’, ‘The Force of the North’ or simply as Mark Sanders, look for Sanders to make serious noise on the Nitro Jam tour in 2011
