    Racer Spotlight, Get to know: Roger Rochester

    1. What is your greatest memory at Atlanta Dragway? Just last month (5/18/2019), I had TWO .001 package runs on the same day in competition- .000 reacts running dead on with a 1 both times. It was a great day!
    2. How did you get started in racing?I was fortunate to race with Dennis Coover as crew for 6 years before he convinced me to get my license. So, I leaped from a 12 second street car to a 7.50 dragster in one shot receiving my Class 4A license in 2006 as well as my Class 4B license later that year, both at Atlanta Dragway.
    3. What's the best advice for someone who wants to start bracket racing?Start with a very good chassis and make it run consistent ET's without spending a fortune to "go fast". Consistency wins races.
    4. How do you celebrate an on track accomplishment?I hang the great time slips on the wall as souvenirs, then follow up with an awesome steak and a beer! I am very thankful just to have the opportunity to participate this awesome, fun family sport.
    5. Besides racing, What is a special talent you have? I am a 20 year veteran Waterski National Competitor- Jump, Trick, Slalom, retiring in 2003 as I crashed jumping and broke 4 ribs. Now, I am involved with a much safer, less dangerous sport, drag racing!
