A Bit about Tony: “I got the itch to race in the early 70’s where I helped my best friend race his ’69 Nova. From there we moved to a ’41 Willy’s (Chilly Willy) that was originally owned by Burt Straus. In 1990 I purchased a 1970 Chevelle from California with another friend of mine and we jointly raced it for two years. In ’92 I bought a 77 Vega Wagon with a small block in it. I ran 9.50’s and raced it at ST. Thomas every weekend from 1992 – 1996.”
“When I purchased my Food Basics Franchise in 1996 I gave up racing to concentrate on business. I sold the franchise in 2004, decided to look into racing again. I followed Ron Shilling around the tracks for a few years to understand and learn more about it. In 2008 I decided to build a new Mike Bos dragster. We started out with a 565 Gary Stinnett motor that ran 7.60’s, went to 598 cubic inch and ran 7.40’s, added an Aluminum block and ran 7.15’s, and finally, added Nitro and ran 6.70’s.
“Won some races, had a great time and enjoyed the tracks, the people and the interaction with fans. Today we are running a Blown Alcohol 477 cubic inch Chevy. We are running in the 6.40 – 6.60 range depending on the tune up.”
“My original goal was to race for a few years, get it out of my system and then move on. Fortunately, it has been six years and I’m still going strong, I can not get it out of my system! I love all aspects of the drag racing environment – The Fans, The Tracks, The Volunteers, the Employees at the tracks, the Quick 32 Sportsman Series team, and the sponsors who make it all possible.”
“I am fortunate to have a passion in life. A passion I can afford. A passion I can share with others. A passion I can talk about with excitement.”
I am grateful for the sponsors –
– Lucas Oil who provide me with oil for the season
– NGK who provide me with spark plugs for the car
– Al Billes Racing for his dyno time and tuning assistance and blower set up
– Stefko racing engines who provide me with an engine that performs well and stays together all season
– Ron Shilling Racing for his expertise in building my transmissions and racing experience
– Mario Positano who put together my original web site and continues to contribute to our team as a major supporter
– Kelly Sams who is my crew chief and has been with me from the start
2014 is ramping up to be a very electrifying season for Tony. He has put together a program to run 7 – 10 races which will keep him busy.
As he says, “I have a schedule, a plan, a package and most of all the ability to run consistency. My goal is to make it to the Winner’s Circle multiple times and finish within the top three. The season is short, fast paced and before you know it, it is over. You have to be prepared and stick to the plan.”
