Scott Weis and the Wiseguy crew were disappointed, but not disheartened by the rain-out at Dallas. Scott and his family in the Tootees house car had hoped to back up, and maybe improve on their best ever 4.95 at Memphis.

The crew was disappointed with their first round loss at Memphis which was due to another "growing-pains" mistake that cost them their chance at the round. Admittedly these types of mistakes are becoming fewer and fewer for the team as they learn the ropes of the rigorous duty required to field a competitive nitro funny car. Quite a feat in light of the fact that NHRA nitro funny car racing is among the most sophisticated and well financed forms of motorsports on the planet. The team is hoping to run the final three events of the 2000 season in order to gain more of this necessary experience. Which will come in handy for the kick-off of the 2001 season.

Weis and the crew were pleased all-in-all with their Memphis performance, and were grateful for the buzz generated for one of their newest marketing partners Nitromaniac.com, who was a welcome addition to the Wiseguy crew's team. With a special tip of the hat to the folks at NHRA Heat for acknowledging our Memphis performance on Thursday's program.

Scott said "We are excited to be at the Houston Raceway Park for the 4th annual Matco Tools SuperNationals presented by Racing Champions this weekend. My Father and Mother, my brothers, and I, and the whole Wiseguy crew want to thank everyone who helps us and pulls for the Wiseguys."
