The Ultimate Gambler event is a shootout loaded with the top names in bracket racing from coast-to-coast. Biondo used a .011 and 4.753 on his 4.74 target to oust Idaho standout Dan Lafferty. In the semi-final round, Biondo defeated Jeff Cheney to advance to the final for a rematch with two time defending NHRA Super Comp Champion Shawn Langdon. Langdon is also a K&N sponsored Sportsman Class racer. Biondo took the victory with a 4.806 on his 4.77 dial over Langdon’s .018 induced 4.893 (4.85 dial).

The Ultimate Gambler victory put a huge mark on Biondo’s 2008 resume. After starting his season with a Stock victory at the IHRA Sportsman National event at Immokalee Regional Raceway, Biondo went on to appear in five NHRA national event final rounds. Of those five Biondo won Stock at Gainesville, Super Stock at St. Louis and Stock again at Englishtown.

He also ran six big money bracket events in 2008. At the JEGS U.S. Open in July, Biondo won the $10,000-to-win event. In August, he scored a $25,000-to-win victory at the AA Auto Salvage Superbucks Weekend at Atco Dragway. In September he competed in the Million Dollar race in Memphis, Tennessee and took home a new dragster and motor in a special 64-car-shootout. In November he went to the Winter Series in Brandenton, Florida and won $15,000.

Biondo uses K&N Engineering products. “I use K&N Oil and Air Filters on all my cars, even my tow vehicles,” he said. “The K&N products keep the dirt out of my engines. I also notice a difference in gas mileage. I get more miles-per-gallon with K&N Filters.”
