The DragChamp Show with Corona Lockdown Practice Tree Challenge

Blase Raia and Bob Welsch of the Corona Lockdown Practice Tree Challenge join the show this week to talk online practice tree racing. The guys talk about how the challenge started and where it’s headed in the future.

Our guest this week are the founders of the Corona Lockdown Practice Tree Challenge, Blase Raia and Bob Welsch.  What started out of boredom earlier this spring during the COVID-19 lockdown has grown into a 1,300+ strong community of racers looking to fun and competition.  The invitation only Facebook group routinely produces some of the toughest competition in drag racing. 

Blase and Bob joined us to discuss the origins of the Challenge, how much work goes into managing the online competitions, what they would change if they could…(not much), the Triple 0 Jackpot, they’re personal racing endeavors, and they’re future plans.  As always we get into a number of other topics as well.

Let us know what you think of the show, our guests, and the format. We want to hear from you.
