    Mendy,
    I took my 6 yr old grandson to his first Drag Race in April in Sacramento and he loved it and particularly you and The Bomb Squad. His mother is now re decorating his room in a drag theme.
    Is it possible to get a autographed poster of you and your car to hang in the place of honor in his room?

    His name is Chase Kelln. If so I would be happy to pick it up at the Governor’s Cup at Sacramento raceway in Sept. He would love to meet you and say hello.

    Thanks for your time and stay safe,
    Tom Lewandowski
