Al Segrini/Black Magic Vega
« on: November 01, 2013, 07:15:04 am »
Look for a new Black Magic Vega on nitro next year. Segrini will license in the car and will do some driving but a regular driver will be announced soon. ATI is behind this effort  along with a few other sponsors.

FYI...Barb Santucci doesn't own the name and will not be involved in this project.

Cool deal...Segrini just drove Billy Lynch's dragster at the NH Reunion and drove Billy's last T/F big show effort.

If Al himself doesn't know anything about it, I'll go out on a limb and say it's bogus...

possibility...Al's brother Louie was all impressed at FCR over the proposed John Worm Cars ,he was all over Larson's camp like a kid in a candy store
He later relayed to us he wants to build one
Al said he thinks Loui must have fell down and hit his head! :P ;D
