We just learned that these two dragsters have names - we knew they both were built by the capable hands of Rick Santos. What we didn't know is one is named "Lucy" and the other is "Ricky". Somebody must have loved the TV program!! Rick Santos does what he came here to do - and he did it in "Ricky" - Poor Lucy, like the famous redhead, the team didn't have the happiest of faces as they went to pick up their driver. It was a good drag race, Jones just didn't have the tuneup the Oakwood team did.
