2013 Skyview Drags Super Pro Track Champion Carl Drake, Jr.!
What would you call a race season where you blew up 2 motors and 10 transmissions in your stable of race cars? Well for the Drake family racing team, at least one member calls it his first ever track championship season!
CJ Drake, from Binghamton, NY, started his Super Pro drag racing career when he got his license at just 16 years of age. From the time he was 16 until he was 20, Drake raced approximately 5 times. “I’m from a racing family and really wanted to race, but at that age, I was just more interested in girls and other sports,” said Drake. But the racing bug finally bit Drake big time when he was 21 years of age. His dad bought him a car and Drake won his first race at his new home track, Skyview Drags in Tioga Center, NY. The very next week, Drake won a 20k race at Atco Dratgway in Atco, NJ and a drag racer was born.
For the Drake family, racing is a family sport spent on the road for weeks at a time. They’ve been running the racing circuit for years now. Although Drake calls Skyview Drags home, he is often racing all over the country for the big money. “I’ve never had the chance to run for a track championship because we miss so many weeks. It’s hard to accumulate points when you miss 7 or 8 races because of other commitments,” said Drake.
