TIM FOSKEY, JR. CAPTURES FOOTBRAKE NATIONALS SUNDAY AT U.S. 13
DELMAR, DE â€“ The rescheduled Footbrake Nationals and MoPar Muscle Sunday took place at the U.S. 13 Dragway this past weekend. The Footbrake division prohibits the use of electronics by the racers and puts all of the emphasis on the skill of the driver.
