All a good racer needs is a good car, a little luck, great reaction times and a Wally or two. Brad Zaskowski crossed the finish line in Virginia in his brother’s 1994 Camaro with its 350 cubic inch Chevy Lt1 motor for his fourth Wally.

“My brother Shane decided he wanted to go to a Central Michigan University football game instead of going racing,” said Zaskowski. “My wife Amy and I loaded up our two kids and headed to Richmond for the Nationals. I took Shane’s car with me instead of my SS car because I wanted to drive the stocker again before we put it away for the winter.”

It turned out to be a great weekend for the Grand Rapids, Michigan racer. “It was great to stand on the podium with my second National event Wally of the year,” said Zaskowski. “It made the long drive home a joy.”

Brad Zaskowski usually competes in Super Stock in his 1987 Camaro with its 327 cubic inch Chevy motor. Both brothers, Brad and Shane, followed their dad in racing. Patriarch Bill Zaskowski drives a 1966 Chevy 11 Nova with a 283 cubic inch SB Chevy motor.

“I got into drag racing because my dad races,” said Brad Zaskowski. “I started racing 15 years ago in junior dragsters and now I run a full season. We always go to various race tracks as a family.”

The Zaskowski’s also use K&N air and oil filters. “The wrench off K&N oil filter, part number HP-2002 is a nice feature on our race cars,” said Zaskowski. “We also use the K&N air filters because they protect our engines from track debris and give us great filtration.”

Virginia was a really good way to end the 2009 season for Zaskowski. “That’s it for this year,” he said. “We’ll start up again in March of 2010.”
