AJ Fiorelli Goes 990-Feet on the Bumper to Win Byron’s Power Wheelstand Championship

Well-knowing what it would take to win the 20th annual World Power Wheelstand Championship at Byron Dragway on Sunday, October 5th, AJ Fiorelli came loaded for bear with his Mackinaw, Illinois-based ’68 Cuda and let it all hang out, or, well, up, with a nearly full quarter-mile pass on the hind quarters. The monumental, virtually flawless and picturesque wheel stand will undoubtedly go down in drag racing history as one of the greatest ever and Fiorelli as a most deserving champion of the historic event’s 20th annual running. An added bonus to the already incredible video from user VictoryRedColorado is legendary announcer Ron Leek providing the play-by-play over the loudspeaker. Congratulations to AJ Fiorelli, as well as his sponsors at Midwest Chassis, Hilyard Performance, Promax Racing Carbs & Engines, Brooks Transmission and Midwest Converters.
