Nick Folk Presents this Month’s Guest Editorial for ThisIsBracketRacing.com Members
Carterville, IL: This month’s www.ThisIsBracketRacing.com guest editorial is penned by 2-time World Champion and multi-time big buck bracket winner Nick Folk. For Nick‘s column, TIBR asked him to select a specific event that he won, and detail his thoughts, strategies, and execution round-by-round for the TIBR audience. The result is an insightful look not only at the strategies that TIBR is known for, but also their real-world application by a well known and successful competitor. In his column, Nick details the 2011 Race to the Million "Triple 20" in which he earned a $20,000 payday behind the wheel of his American Race Cars dragster.
"Leaving a not-so-stellar .016 off the starting line and still being somewhat even with my opponent wasn’t too bad, and luckily for me I had my first opponent go under his 4.72 dial with a 4.698 at 142 mph. That left me the only appropriate thing to do, check out my new Moser Engineering brakes. They work great, to the order of a one over the dial 4.532 at 138 mph for the win."
Nick Folk had high expectations in the world of drag racing before he ever took the wheel. As the son of sportsman racing icon Ron Folk, and the younger brother of highly accomplished Brian Folk, Nick was essentially expected to excel in the sportsman racing world. In his years behind the wheel, Nick has not only met those expectations, he’s exceeded them. He has twice earned IHRA World Championships, amassed 19 national event titles in a variety of classes, claimed 9 division championships, and won seemingly every big dollar bracket race in the country at some point during his distinguished career.
