2019 was a banner year for Plaizier Motorsports led by dad Eddy, son Casey and daughter Frankie.
After a long season which included six Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events between May and August, the NHRA Northwest Division crowned its 2019 champions.
Francesca (Frankie) Giroux locked up the Division 6 Super Street Championship with two final round appearances. Frankie who finished with a total of 353 points, held off competitors Justin Cooper and Gary Ericksen. She put up 167 points in the last two races.
With a runner-up finish at Boise at the start of the race season, combined with good performances at Las Vegas, Mission and Woodburn followed by a big win in August at the Seattle Divisional race propelled Frankie to the championship.
Division championship points take into account your best 5 of 8 divisional events throughout the year.
“It’s my first championship, and I earned my second divisional Wally this year. I really want to thank Ace Racing for all their support”. said jubilant Frankie.
Not to be outdone by his sister, Casey had a very good year as well. Piloting his super gas Corvette he finished just outside top 10 nationally. Extensive work to the car prior to the start of the 2019 season led to a decent start, and with minor adjustments the car came on strong mid-season driving Casey to finish six in the division. Casey went to the podium twice in 2019, at Mission divisional race and at the Dallas National event.
Driving the new super street Firebird in 2019, Eddy recorded his best finish with a semi-final finish at the NHRA Dallas National.
The family trio starts the 2020 NHRA season at the Winternationals in Pomona showcasing Casey’s super gas Corvette, Eddy’s super street Firebird and Frankie’s super street Camaro.
