“We’ve been struggling all season,” said Rampy. “But when we start a race I know we have as good a shot to win as anyone. The way it worked out, we’re just tickled to win. We ran really well and my 1932 Bantum Roadster was right on target at both events.”

Rampy said the Roadster is his favorite race car. “Its 323 cubic inch Chevy motor is a powerhouse,” he said. “I also really enjoy the feel of an open bodied car.”

Rampy has raced since 1973 and said he is fortunate enough to make it his job. “It’s great when you make a living doing something you love,” he said. “I’ve used K&N for so long I can’t even remember the year I first started using K&N. We turn motors over 10,000 rpm and we have to keep the motors breathing. K&N oil filters and the K&N hood scoop give me proper filtration, more air and help me get to the Winner’s Circle.”

Rampy is currently situated at No. 7 in the world in Competition Eliminator. He will next compete at zMAX Dragway near Charlotte, North Carolina.
