Posted on Friday, June 20, 2014 Categories: Bobby Fazio's Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Let me start off by introducing myself as this is my first entry and you might not know a whole lot about me.  My name is Bobby Fazio and I am a 30 year old competitor in the NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes.  Our "team" consists of my dad Bob, Uncle Joe, family friend Rich Krzemien (prounounced Krez-min), and my friend "Fast Eddie" Beidler when he is not racing his own mustang.  This is my first year in Stock Eliminator in the N/SA class designation and I am driving a 1990 Ford Mustang 5.0 that I purchased after college graduation that is also the car in which I learned how to drag race.  I had numerous victories and runner up finishes in "Street Eliminator" at Maple Grove, Atco, and Cecil County in this car and it is most likely going to be buried with me someday!  Since this is my first year turning my street driven 5.0 in to an all-out Stocker, most of my blog entries will include my figuring out how to get every ounce of elapsed time out of this car within the strict rules of Stock Eliminator and learning how to use my laptop programmed Electronic Fuel Injection.

 

This is also my sixth year driving a high winding 289 cubic inch stick-shift 1964 Mustang in Super Stock under the class designation of SS/L.  There are maybe 5 or 6 racers in the country foolish (or should I say dumb) enough to run such a difficult combo in the Trans-brake/air shifted super stock category so I am usually the only SS/L car wherever I go.  In this particular car I have won the SS/L class three times at NHRA National Events, won an "East Coast Stock/Super Stock" event in 2012, won the "PC Richard and Son Pennsylvania Dutch Classic" in 2012 and was a top 5 finisher in the "ATI Stock/Super Stock" series in 2013 before winning a "Tri-State Stock/Super Stock" race at the close of 2013.  Being my sixth year in this car, we have figured out most of the learning curve associated with such a violent and high maintenance combination but stay tuned for blogs associated with clutch cars and how they make you want to quit racing every other week when you first start out!

 

Next up - I will be writing on the importance of recording data and how it helped us tremendously, bigger not always being better as far as tires are concerned, and why you should worry about reaction time first, and elapsed time second if you want to win races!
