The first race of the year the Candies & Hughes lost a rod due to parts failure at the Kragen O’Reilly 50th Winternationals in Pomona, CA. Following the Winternationals the Candies & Hughes traveled to the Arizona Nationals only to keep the car in the trailer due to rain delays. Even with the early set backs the team was prepared for the 52nd Annual March Meet. Driver, Mike Savage, ran a clean 6.033 E.T. at 239.48 mph securing the #7 qualifying spot. Round two of qualifying the Candies & Hughes opted to sit it out, Jim Broome commented, “It is an all run field and right now we have a solid starting position. We are going to sit this one out.”

With very few competitors making it down the track during qualifying round two it looked as though the Nostalgia Motorsports team had buried their gremlin. First round eliminations, Savage throttled past the Pizza Haven car taking the win. Unfortunately, elimination round two facing #23 qualifier Bob Godfrey the gremlin returned in the form of a broken reverser calling an end to the Candies & Hughes’ weekend.

Don’t count these front runners out! The Cuda is rumored to head to Vegas and join Vintage Fuel at the FUNNY BUSINESS Party on May 28th followed by competing in the Rockabilly Rod Reunion on the 29th and 30th.

Todd Lesenko, owner and driver of the Jolly Rogers, demonstrated his ability to stay calm while under pressure during March Meet qualifying. Friday, day one of the 52nd Annual March Meet qualifying driver of the Pizza Haven Funny Car swapped lanes and bumped Lesenko’s right rear tire after Lesenko backed out due to tire shake. Saturday, day two of qualifying and the driver of the War Horse also jumped into the Jolly Rogers’ lane, fortunately Todd and new crew chief Jon Wurtz had the Camaro hooked up running a 6.14 E.T. securing him the #9 qualifying spot. They were one of only four Funnies to make it down the track on Saturday and after that exhilarating run Todd joked, “I thought this was drag racing and I keep getting these guys that want to DRAFT.”

Todd’s enthusiasm for the sport and support of the spectators makes the Jolly Roger pit a must visit. Lesenko says, “I feel fortunate to be here and my job as the driver is to participate in marketing and promotions. I stop whatever I am doing to make sure the fans feel appreciated.”

Saturday afternoon Todd made a special appearance at Vintage Fuel’s midway space to sign autographs followed by filming a feature for Vintage Fuel TV called Funny Business.

Round one on Sunday “The Pirate” faced Mike Halstead in Mark Stuckey’s new Mustang body Funny Car. Lesenko lost to Halstead’s 5.929 E.T.

The Jolly Rogers team is headed to Funny Car Fever in Sacramento next followed by Vegas in May where they will be joining Vintage Fuel (vintagefuel.com) and the Candies & Hughes for the Funny Business Party on May 28th and Rockabilly Rod Reunion on May 29th and 30th.
