A2 WIND TUNNEL PRODUCES ON-TRACK RESULTS - 301.33 MPH
Enfield, CT – October 22, 2014 – The President of Hanna Motorsports Jets, Al Hanna, today announced the post wind tunnel performance results of the Queen of Diamonds II jet dragster. The head-turning performance was the direct result of the Hanna’s day of testing at the A2 Wind Tunnel complex, located in Mooresville, North Carolina.
"Our family is dedicated to growth and success. With that said, we made the decision to invest in a full day session at the acclaimed A2 Wind Tunnel, for our ‘one-of-a-kind’ jet dragster; the new ‘Queen of Diamonds II.’ There were many issues to trouble shoot with this new design, and we wanted to test in a controlled manner. The A2 Wind Tunnel made those tests available in a safe and really exciting environment.”
The Hanna’s used A2 to configure the best combination of down force versus drag, and lateral stability. "This is truly a work in progress," stated Rich Hanna, VP of Hanna Motorsports Jets and the driver of the record holding 'GOJO Firebird' Jet FC. "Although we've achieved our goal of 300 MPH with this new design, we also learned there are so many other areas we now have to explore further. Our goal is to achieve even better on-track performance along with even better handling characteristics."
The Hanna Motorsports Jets team has support from GOJO Industries, XLERATOR Hand Dryers, and Simpson Performance. The "Queen of Diamonds II" is now booking for 2015, after a very successful 2014.
The final appearance of the team jet funny cars, the 'GOJO Firebird', and the 'XLERATOR' Top Secret Firebird is at the PBIR Citrus Nationals in West Palm Beach, Florida November 29/30. "There's no question the investment in a day at A2 Wind Tunnel was a great decision. I'd recommend anyone in motorsports spend a day at A2. The learning cannot be duplicated on the track", said Al Hanna.

Dan Marrotte has made arrangements for a NHRA chassis inspector to come up and certify or re-certify roll cages on
Saturday November 22 2014 at 8am in the parking lot next to MPE racing 251 Broadway Taunton Mass.If weather is
crappy out we will move to a different place the will be indoorscerts will cost $180 per car plus cost of his travel expenses.
His travel expenses will be divided between all of the cars that show up so....
if 5 cars show up, cost will be about $130+180=310 per car
if 10 cars show up, cost will be about $65+180=245 per car
if 15 cars show up, cost will be about $45+180=225 per car
if 20 cars show up, cost will be about $35+180=215 per car
if 25 cars show up, cost will be about $25+180=205 per car
if 30 cars show up, cost will be about $20+180=200 per car
This is a pay by check ONLY! Written to NHRA
I have sent invites to a lot of people that I know don't need a chassis cert
I am just hoping that you may know someone that drag races and may need this done so spread the word around
and you may invite anyone that you wish to help spread the word out basically if you have or know someone that
has a car going 9.99 or faster and has a cage they may need a cert done!
This year’s Buddy Scurto King of the Hill Memorial Race was a fitting tribute to the man who truly loved the sport of drag racing. In the electronics category Scott Menard powered his way through the field to set up one side of the final pairing, while Don Pires, Jr., emerged as the top gun in the non-electronics class. During the runoff Menard overcame a hole shot deficit to run on his number for the win over Pires.

To find the future stars of both the NHRA and New England Dragway, there is no need to look any further than the Junior Dragster ranks, where each young driver learns the basics of drag racing as well as the tricks to turn on the win lights. Over the weekend of August 8-10, 2014 NHRA Division 1 held the Junior Dragster Divisional race that saw hundreds of Junior Dragster racers face off for the top spot in each age group, as well as the Race of Champions, and Spirit award.
