The DragChamp Show with Brandon Umberger

Brandon Umberger, driver of the Jelly Bean Chevette, is our guest this week on the DragChamp Show podcast!

The driver of the Jelly Bean Chevette, Brandon Umberger, is our guest this week on the DragChamp Show.  With Jake and Ryan both out of pocket, Gary Don took the lead and interviewed one of the best bottom bulb racers on the West Coast and arguably in the country.

Umberger, from Grand Junction, Colorado, was a great interview and the two covered topics ranging from racing a Chevette to why Brandon prefers Bottom Bulb racing over Top Bulb.  We got the skinny on the history of the Jelly Bean including where the name came from, how Brandon acquired it, and the parts and pieces that make it so consistent. 

The discussion continued with a deep dive on the vast amount of talented Bottom Bulb racers on the West Coast and how Brandon would like to move East in order to race more often.  We learned how he originally had dreams to plan professional baseball, how he hates quarter mile racing, and how much his wife and kids support his racing program.
