Biondo drove his 2000 Firebird with a 400 cubic inch Pontiac engine and his 2005 World Championship winning Camaro at the Gators. “I won World in NHRA Stock Eliminator in my 1969 Camaro,” said Biondo.

The 34-year-old from Queens, New York uses K&N Engineering products in all his vehicles. “My favorite is the K&N Performance Gold Oil Filter (HP-5001),” he said. “The K&N filter is easy to take off and put back on. I’ve never had a filter stuck with K&N because of the one inch nut on the canister. All I need is a wrench.”

In 2005, Biondo had a very successful season. With 5 National Event and 5 Divisional Event victories he also shattered the NHRA record with 792 total points.

“I use K&N oil and air filters on all by cars, including my dragster. I also use K&N’s Fuel Injection Performance Kits (FIPK),” said Biondo. “One of my tow vehicles is a Cadillac Escalade and I noticed more power and better gas mileage on my way to and from races. The K&N products work great by keeping dirt out of all our engines.”

This year, Biondo plans to put a lot more emphasis on high dollar bracket races where he will run his 2004 Race Tech dragster. He also plans on attending 10 NHRA national events and a minimum of 5 NHRA divisional events.

“My next race in the dragster is in Memphis, Tennessee,” Biondo said. “The top prize is $100,000, let’s face it, I have a one-in-250 chance of winning. I’m going to give it a real try.”
