Matawan Native Frank Manzo, Drag Racing Champ

The New York Times has a nice piece on Matawan native Frank Manzo, who ran a local construction company until the economy soured two years ago, at which point he accepted an offer to apply his superb but part-time drag racing skills as a sheik's pit boss in Qatar. Interesting story.

Manzo is ranked 40th in the Top 50 Drivers in Championship Drag Racing (1951-2001) by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Competition Plus ran a detailed story on Manzo in 2007.
