Mighty Sports extended its winning tradition to drag racing as Ricardo Fallorina flashed vintage form to rule the premiere M&H Pro class in the National Drag Racing Championship Northern Series at the Clark International Speedway.
Fallorina, 55, used a 500hp Wankel Rotary turbo engine and a Puerto Rican-style rear wheel set up for his Toyota car to near perfection to win the event in style.
“He will not be called Mr. Close gear for nothing,” said car owner Patrick Lee Tan. “For me, he’s the best drag racer in the land today.”
It was Fallorina’s biggest win since ruling the 1988 Meralco Avenue Drag Racing. He laterr thanked the management of Mighty Sports for the help it extended.
“It’s a big comeback for us that’s why we are grateful for Mighty Sports,” said Fallorina, who has been into drag racing as early in the 80s. “Proud to be under the wings of Mighty Sports.”
The win was Mighty Sports' first in drag racing after carving a niche in basketball, football and volleyball.
Fallorina’s performance was so electrifying that he has been installed heavy favorite this early when the series resumes on March 4.
Through Mighty Sports, Lee Tan said they intend to use NOS and methanol fuel for a much better showing next time.
