DRAG RACING : GONE IN 7 SECONDS AT 'VERNAM' THIS SUNDAY!

"It is lonely at the top". Words spoken by BadBreed Racecraft's head honcho Nantwi Coke. Mr. Coke is typically a rather laid back and reserved individual. A jovial man of few words, but when they (words) escape his massive but magnanimous frame, they convey the elevated pride, stance and poise one would expect when your team retains Jamaica's fastest rear wheel drive tube frame machine. Trapped in laughter, he stated - "You can quote me on that!" And when you assess [...]

DRAG RACING : 'PRESS GAS DIS SUNDAY'!

Good whatever time of day it is to all my colleagues at the Holiday Inn, Montego Bay. Yes, 'The Rock' is still paradise! The NDRC will roll out its hotly contested, speed-infused carpet at drag racing's luxury suite - Vernamfield, Clarendon on Sunday, July 23, 2017. The third installment of the Full Throttle Championship Series, by all accounts, will unmask a plethora of scrumptious machines, which will all wrestle for P1 accolades. Our culture dictates, that on the day the Lord designed [...]
