Folk knocked off a group of very formidable competitors for his Super Rod victory and had an uphill battle for Top Dragster. His side of the Top Dragster ladder at the Suzuki Motor City Nationals read like a who’s who of IHRA competition. First round, he beat big dollar bracket racer and current Quick Rod championship contender Brett Nesbitt. Next, took his Undercover Dragster to defeat Al Sexton in round two.
That set up another battle between Brian and his brother (former IHRA Top Dragster World Champion) Nick Folk. Brian beat Nick, went onto the final and beat former IHRA World Champion Ricky Adkins. The Folk family uses K&N Products on all their vehicles. “Our K&N oil filters are the best on the market,” said Folk. “The dirt stays out of our engines and the filtration is great for a big competitive edge.”
“I was lucky all day,” said Folk. “I wasn’t that impressive on the starting line, but I did a pretty good job at the finish line to make up for it.”
Folk has moved to the national points lead in the Super Rod category. There are only two national events left in the 2007 schedule and Folk will do battle with Steve Furr. “Everyone, including me, thought Steve would run away with the championship,” said Folk. “These last two weeks have been incredible, and we’ve got a shot. We’ll see how it plays out.”
