Frank "Ace" Manzo

Frank Manzo (center) and crew thrashing away on their Lucas Oil sponsored, Top Alcohol Funny Car before final round. Frank took home Top Alcohol Funny Car Finals.

Yup; it was Sunday, Feb. 10 at this years 2008 NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, California. As always, My son Michael and I were hanging around Frank Manzo's Top Alcohol Funny Car pit area; one of my hometown drag racing heroes, from Morganville, N.J. I've been following Frank "Ace" Manzo from the mid-70's at Raceway Park, Englishtown, N.J. His nephew Jim Manzo, still is one of my best friends from 1971. Frank and I always manage to talk a bit, when I can catch up with him. He's one of the fastest guys on and off the track.
