    I thought I read Gordon Mineo had passed away 1-2 years ago?

    Craig Treble (not sure if it is the same guy as the PSB rider, but guessing it is) qualified for the NHRA Div 3 bracket finals for Lucas Oil Raceway (indy) in Pro Bike ET.

    I believe he is still driving the AA/FC. That's according to his last interview on one of the dirt track sites. He was actually bracket racing but he said he got bored and wanted to try something different. Still loves the Nostalgia car and would come back to NHRA if he had a ride.

    Ah....good ol' Daniel... or Danielle - either way...Just Say Go....;)

    Not sure what she's up to. Last I heard she was in the Carolina's somewhere...Maybe she got her job back at the Auto Parts store? It was cool seeing her race for a while....

    And few people remember this moment of history. Who was the car in the other lane when KB went 301.70? Yup Danielle Deporter.

    Sorry for not thinking of you earlier Rick. I guess I was just focused on owners, drivers and tuners.
