I was just watching ESPN tonight at the local sports bar… I went there to watch the World Series but I saw on the other screen that Dom Lagana took the first round at the NHRA event at Las Vegas…! So I tuned out the W.S. for that. Then he beat the points leading Larry Dixon…!!! for the second round… then… he took out Antron Brown to go to the final round against Schumaker’s Army and lost, but not by much…!!!
I figured the Forum here would be buzzing with this, but now I’m wondering if that was a re-run from some other time, or was that today’s racing…?
They don’t turn on the sound there so I don’t get all the details.
What’s going on…?
Maso…..It was today’s race and the Lagana’s did excellent. It sure is good to see the IHRA champions (Dover people) do so well.
Waiting for reply from Bobby…Saw the ESPN rerun late last night. Tight Race !..Lousy job of reporting…Hardly said Anything about the “Team That Could”.But heres a nice quick report thats interesting:
Heres a Cool Link to follow The Team Too…..
………..Theres 52 Video clips Too …see left side -scroll down and tons of photos.
Will Lagana Racing stay on the left coast for Pomona in 2 weeks????
Oh, also dont forget A. Lincoln Morehead went rounds at The Strip!!!
Good showing from DDS!!!!
Wow! How great for those guys! What a great year they’re having. Congrats, we all know how hard you’ve been at it!
Running Pomona for sure!
Lagana did real well we were at the top end after we won TA/FC and he gave The Sarge a run for the money Congat”s
Hey Mr. Terenzio, yes the Lagana crew really did us Dover guys proud !
And congrat’s to you Anthony and the Mickey Ferro crew on your TA/FC
victory ! “High five” to both teams !!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
LAGANA WENT ( 4 ) rounds in top fuel with a very proud dad there and watching, he beat big names, Larry Dixion, Anton Brown, lost to Tonny Schumacher ( who was the Top ET & Speed ). this is a must watch just to see a proud dad watching his son. Bobby Lagana was just soo happy. being replayed on espn 2 at 4 am on fri. Second generation DOVER is alive and well.
It should be noted the Dual talents envolved here with both brothers. Bobby nailed the IHRA Championship and Dom racking up NHRA points.
