Family patriarch Ron “The General” Folk was successful in limited action this season behind the wheel. He drove his dragster to a Quick Rod victory at an IHRA National event in Grand Bend, Ontario and earned a berth in the IHRA Tournament of Champions. It will be held in May of 2010.

The General’s sons will also join their father in the IHRA premier event next spring. Their strong finishes in IHRA’s Division 5 Thunder Region earned each of them a spot. As the defending Stock World Champion, Nick Folk once again dominated the Stock category in 2009. His four Pro-Am Tour victories along with 497 points earned Folk the division crown.

Brian Folk joined his brother as a division champion and took the Super Rod crown in the family Camaro Roadster. Both brothers also qualified for the Tournament of Champions in a second class, Brian in Top Dragster and Nick in Super Stock.

Brian Folk ended his 2009 season at the 5 Day Bracket Championships at Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida. Folk won the opening $10,000 event, and appeared in a $5,000 to win 1/8th mile final round before finishing the week in third position overall in the points championship.

The Folk Family Racing Team uses K&N on all of its vehicles. “Our K&N air and oil filters are the best on the market,” said Brian Folk. “The dirt stays out of our engines and the filtration is great. We get our competitive edge with K&N.”
