BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The team of Pete Maduri Jr. and Mark Talmadge were crowned champions of the 2012 Uncle Bob's Self Storage Quick 16 series held at Dunn Tire Raceway Park. Maduri, a past and multi-time Pro, Hot Rod and Jr. dragster champion driving the Maduri Motorsports dragster, and veteran multi-time track champion Mark Talmadge, driving the IEC Electronics dragster, proved too strong and outlasted the competition in the highly competitive series. Maduri commented, "this series is a great way to prepare for top dragster and top sportsman competition. I'd like to thank my crew-chief and father, Pete Sr., for all of his hard work and dedication. Also, huge thanks to my main sponsors: Mike Swinarski Racing, South Buffalo Auto Wrecking, and Joe Lilienthal from JSL Automotive. I would also like to thank Uncle Bob's Self Storage for giving us the series."

The Uni-Select Auto Plus team of Andy and Dennis Gregoire finished in the runner up position during the 18 race series that paid a guaranteed $1,000 to the winner. Maduri and Talmadge had a total of five wins and two runner ups to overcome the Gregoire Brothers who had two wins and four runner ups. Placing third was the dragster team of Dave Lawler and Joe Masullo who recorded two wins. Rounding out the top five were the Competition Transmission Team of Carl Ettipio and Brian Hitchcock and the Kenmore Collision father and son team of Vic Puglia Sr. and Jr., and their beautiful black dragster.
