HAMPTON BLOWER SUPER II ON WINNING FUNNY CAR
Mike Lewis, Sr. VP of Don Schumacher Racing, used his off-weekend from the big show to drive the Henry Gutierrez-owned Brand X Mustang to his first career national event victory by beating second-generation racer Steven Densham in the final round.
Lewis, who qualified third, ran a 5.785, 244.38 to snag the victory. He defeated Will Martin, Rian Konno and low qualifier Chad Head to reach the final.“I just had so much confidence in Paul Smith, Bodie [John] Smith and Virgil Hartman and the whole Texas Jungle team.
These guys are perfect and the car is perfect every time.“We may not have had the seven crew chiefs Chad and Del [Worsham] had but we had three awfully good ones; these guys we have here gave me an incredible amount of confidence.
”Don Hampton, manufacturer of The Hampton Super II says that racers love the new Hampton Super II primarily because:
1. It is Legal...to run
2. There's No Maintenance (no restriping)
3. It works...makes the boost needed to win races!
