Polvadores Make Their Mark at Toyota Nationals
Powered by Dream Chaser Racing Engines, Seth Polvadore and his father Bernie just missed an historic national event double up at the NHRA Toyota Nationals.
Seth, continuing to drive the Dream Chaser/Hughes Performance ’89 I/SA Camaro, successfully wheeled his way to the semi-finals where he was defeated by event champion Joe Sorensen of Woodburn, Oregon. With 102 cars entered in Stock Eliminator, the younger Polvadore continued to leverage excellent reaction times and consistently ran within .02 of his dial.
Bernie, running his ’93 Grand Prix in Super Gas, successfully ran his way through a 49 car field and straight into the finals of the Toyota Nationals. Unfortunately for the elder Polvadore, Super Gas star Tommy Phillips was able to gain a .022 advantage at the starting line and carry the lead through the stripe.
Both Seth and Bernie will once again be competing at the Las Vegas NHRA divisional race next weekend, November 6th-9th.
