The Passing of Rene Hamilton

We are sorry to report that Rene Hamilton, the wife of Tapatio Top Dragster racer Steve Hamilton sadly passed away in July. Steve's racing has been inactive since then but he managed to make it out for the last races of the year in Las Vegas and Pomona where he went three rounds. Steve and Tapatio Racing would like to thank fellow racers and Racers For Christ for their support over the last few months.

NHRA and FOX did a nice piece about Rene during their Pomona Sunday coverage show. You can view it here: CLICK HERE

Tapatio Dragster Sidetracked at Pomona!

After scoring a beautiful six second run in qualifying, Steve Hamilton and the Tapatio Top Dragster lost in the early round due two some mechanical problems at the NHRA Winternationals. The Super Comp dragster also went out in round one.

All was not lost in Pomona though as the Tapatio/ Lucas Oil Dragster is always a fan favorite and attracted a lot of attention throughout the weekend! Now it's on to Phoenix where the team is hoping for better luck and better weather.

Tapatio Dragster Wins in Fontana!

The shiny new headers on Steve Hamilton's Tapatio Dragster either helped or was good luck charm as Steve won in the Super Pro class on July 16 at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California. Steve wanted to thank: Dave Beckley at Mountain View Performance who fixed a crack frame rail and front wheel support. A big thanks also to: Kevin Houmard who supplied the headers, Mickey Thompson tires, Tapatio and Lucas Oil!! Congrats to Steve and his crew!

This coming weekend and next the Tapatio team races at Sonoma for the Lucas Oil regional event and the national event the following weekend!
