Gilbertson looking to kick off 2008 IHRA season with a win

 

 

San Antonio --  Bob Gilbertson, owner/driver of the Tradicion Azul Tequila Knoll Gas Nitro Funny Car and his team are heading into this weekend's Live Nation IHRA Texas Nationals on a mission.
 
The objective is a "clean sweep", something Gilbertson has accomplished twice in his career, where you qualify No. 1, set low ET, run top speed and win the race.  Gilbertson did it at the North American Nationals in 2006 and at the Rockingham World Finals in 2007 and he wants to do it again in this year in Texas and make life miserable for the rest of the field. 
 
Gilbertson, and his crew chief Nicky Boninfante Jr. are coming off a very successful start last weekend in Houston and are optimistically confident about their chances.
 
"It's been a long time since I felt this good going into a race," Gilbertson said.  After our performance last week where we qualified well and ran three consecutive 4.9 second runs we've got some momentum on our side.  Since this is an eighth-mile race I looked our numbers from Houston and maybe we can even re-set the eighth-mile World Record but I'm not going think about that, I'm concentrating on my driving.  I know the guys will give me a car that I can win with, all I have to do is make sure the driver does his job.  The pressure is on me and my goal is to drive the Tradicion Azul Tequila car into victory lane."
 
Boninfante has just one goal in San Antonio.
 
"I want to win the race, that's it," Boninfante added.  "I don't care about anything else, numbers don't matter, my goal is to put the Tradicion Azul Tequila car in the winner's circle for the first time and leave with the points lead."
