Part-time Rustoleum Top Fuel Dragster pilot T.J. Zizzo is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday night at the 50th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida. Zizzo went 3.762 at 323.35 mph for the provisional top spot.
This is the Lincolnshire, Illinois native’s first race of the season.
“Our guys worked really hard on our race car,” Zizzo said. “I realize that I haven’t raced since the U.S. Nationals. Some part time teams, they park their car for an extended period of time then they kind of get it out of the woodwork and run their car just to run it. We don’t do that. We really race hard. I choose to spend time away from my family so I better make it worthwhile.”
