6th West Coast Hot Rod Happinin' at Pomona
Over the weekend
of June 27-29, 2003 the Frantic 4 Racing road show knocked 'em
dead at the Goodguys 6th West Coast Hot Rod Happinin' at the
Pomona Fairplex. Camped in a premier spot for traffic the guys
did numerous fire-ups, sold a lot of FF goodies and introduced
the masses to Nitro veggies. Needless to say, their sponsors
and supporters got extensive exposure at this event.
Talk about a
photo op money can't buy! Without a doubt the most talked about
fire-up of the event was when talk show host Mike Reagan (son
of Ronald) jumped in the FF fueler. Reagan, and ex-boat racer
and diehard race fan was more than willing to experience the
thrill of sitting behind the nitro breathing 354 hemi.
With the help
of Norm Weekly and Ron Rivero, Mike climbs in like a pro.
the fire up Reagan is interviewed by Jim MacMonagle.

Mike just had to buy some of Norm's "Nitro Pickles"
and get the teams autograph on a FF photo.

As usual, all the old timers

Gobel, Ronnie Rapp and honorary FF member, Dennis Prater.
The new and improved Frantic
4 display booth now includes these classy signs telling the fans
everything (almost) they need to know about the team.
