The Spring Fling co-creators Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel join the DragChamp Show this week! We talk about the upcoming Flings, crashing race cars, winning 12 bracket finals, chasing championships, heartbreaking losses, 8,000 rpm burnouts and more!
The creators of the Spring Fling bracket races, Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel, join the DragChamp Show this week! We’re super excited to have drag racing royalty on the podcast as Peter and Kyle have taken bracket racing to another level with their Spring Fling brand. In addition, both are talented racers with a resume that would fill a room.
“I guess I have a problem” – Peter when asked how many times he’s crashed.
We sat down to discuss the upcoming Spring Flings in Galot and Bristol along with the Fall Fling West in Vegas but also got some background on their racing careers including details on a few of Peter’s crashes. Peter discussed his heartbreaking loss at the U.S. Nationals in 2019 and battling Mike Sawyer for the Super Gas world title.
“I just put that bitch right to the floor” – Peter talking about wrecking his brother’s Comp car.
Kyle talked about kicking cancer’s ass, his 12 bracket final victories, and how he’s more focused on coaching other racers than his own driving right now. Emily Biondo jumped in near the end of the conversation to discuss her first Super Gas race and her burnout struggles. By the way, she went on to win that race!
“You win the race or you’re not going to have a place to sleep” – Kyle discussing his mother’s competitive pressure surrounding the bracket finals.
We also broke down the upcoming Young Guns vs. Has Beens that’s going down Thursday at the Spring Fling Million in Bristol. This was such a cool conversation with two of the greats in our sport. We hope you enjoy it.
“My Super Gas record is way better than these two clowns!” – Emily referring to her perfect Super Gas record as compared to Peter and Kyle’s.
Let us know what you think of the show, our guests, and the format. We want to hear from you.
