Mickey Ferro Repeats Winning Ways in Texas

Ennis, Texas – The Top Alcohol Funny Car Team of Mickey Ferro continues to enjoy success in their 2010 Racing Season. The RYCO Hydraulics sponsored alcohol funny car celebrated their first National Event win of the 2010 racing season earlier this year in Baytown, Texas and followed it up with another win in their second outing to Texas in Dallas at the 23rd Annual O’Reilly’s Fall Nationals.

After only two qualifying attempts following a rain delay, Ferro’s team began Sunday’s festivities in the third qualifying position posting a 5.675. In round one, Ferro posted a 5.61 with a stellar reaction time of .028. In rounds two and three, Ferro’s team ran mid 5.50 passes and continued in second round with a .047 reaction time and a whole shot win in the Semi Finals with an .039 light. His team finished out the day running a 5.575 at 257.04 miles per hour, and once again posted a reaction time of .029 which placed his team in the winner’s circle.

“This year, Texas has been good to us” noted Ferro “my team gives me a great car to race every time we go to the track and more importantly, every pass. Some days are just your day to win and some days are not. We work very hard at what we do, and this weekend, we enjoyed the benefits of that hard work by landing into the winners circle”.

Mickey Ferro credits his team’s success to his crew, family, friends and partners. His racing team consists of crew chief Anthony Terenzio, Joe Paladino, Mike Pavia, Ed Cornwell and John Pedwano.

Mickey Ferro thanks his sponsors RYCO Hydraulics, City Carting and Green Stuff Absorbent.

Ferro’s team is currently in 2nd place within the Lucas Oil National Points Championship and is looking to win the 2010 Southeast Division 2 Championship. They will be racing next October 16 and 17th at the last 2010 Lucas Oil Southeast Division 2 Race in Reynolds, Georgia.

Mickey Ferro’s Mission ‘Vegas’ Accomplished

Las Vegas, Nv -- Mickey Ferro and his RYCO Hydraulic Alcohol Funny Car Team are experiencing a storybook finale to the 2010 drag racing season. His team took home their fifth Wally in a row this past weekend at the Shortline Express sponsored Lucas Oil Pacific Division 7 drag race in Las Vegas.

At the end of qualifying on Saturday, Ferro’s team sat in the 5th position which paired them in first round against Jay Payne. Payne and Ferro have been competing against each other all year, both seeking the same result, Division 2 Championship and #2 in the National Points Championship chase.

“Every round at this race was huge” noted Ferro, “we didn’t get the data we wanted for the first qualifier when shake forced me to pedal the car. However, Anthony Terenzio is so good at reading the track and dialing the car, we ran solid numbers for the rest of the event.

“Racing Payne is never easy. First round was a great drag race, both of our teams put our normal 110% effort and it was a very close margin of victory at the end of the quarter mile. That’s what drag racing is all about.”

Ferro extends a very special thank you to Brad Littlefield who handled the bottom end for the weekend as well as to all of his crew, sponsors, friends and family.
