Dad and i going head to head

I drive this vehicle in Super Street in NHRA Div 1

I have won 4 track championships @ Lebanon Valley Dragway in Street Eliminator with this truck.

My name is Billy Kirpens Jr., i am a 2nd generation drag racer. I started racing at Lebanon Valley Dragway in 1990. I have won 11 track championships there, 6 in Pro Eliminator and 5 in Street Eliminator. I started my career racing in Street Eliminator, raced in that class for 3 seasons finishing in 4th, 2nd and 6th place. Moved up to Pro Eliminator in 1993 and have raced in that class ever since, i have never finished worse that 6th place in a season in this class. I was hired by Clark Olson to race in Super Pro in 1998, raced his car for 3 season with a best finish of 4th place in 2000. Started racing in the Northeast Super Street Association in 2002, ran in this class for 5 seasons finishing no worse that 5th place. Returned to racing in Super Pro with my Street Eliminator truck in 2007, raced for two seasons finishing in 4th and 5th place respectively.
