Welcome to Hookdaddy's Blog aka. Don Scholl

Posted on Friday, May 23, 2014

A couple of weeks ago Scott & Jill asked me if I wanted to write a blog for S&W's website.  Of course, being an opinionated, gluten for punishment, I said sure.   For those of you who don't know me, I spent over 31 years as a member of the S&W group before retiring in 2010. If you spend any time on many of the drag racing chat rooms & message boards, you may know me as Hookdaddy.  I'll fill you in on where that name came from in a future blog.  Since my retirement my wife, Mary, and I split our time between our home in Ocala, Florida and our home in PA.   I've been a drag racer since getting my driver's license in 1966 and have raced Brackets and NHRA class racing over the years. Currently my son, Kevin, drives my S&W 4-link dragster in the NHRA D-1 Super Comp class and also participates in the Mid-Atlantic Super Comp Series, so I spend my summers as crew-chief, truck driver and meteorologist for our Super Comp effort.  When the D-1 season ends, Kevin & I get the car apart, and send the motor & trans out to be freshened.   Then, Mary & I head to Florida.  But Florida isn't every day by the pool!  Heck no, Florida means winter racing too, and I turn my crew chief attentions to my neighbor's race car.  Of course, the fact that my neighbor is S&W's Southern State Representative John Konnick, doesn't hurt any. John & I hit many 1/8 mile tracks in the Ocala area on the weekends.  Over the coming weeks I'll share with you my opinions of the differences between racing up north and down south.  A lot surprised a transplanted Yankee like me - for sure.  That's it for now. If you want to share any ideas or info with me, you can send me a message through Facebook on my Hookdaddy Motorsports page or send a message to Jill @ S&W; she'll forward it to me.   Until then, see you at the races.
