Ralph Andreacchi from Maple, Ontario Canada and his Skull Motorsports Outlaw
Street/Pro Modified 53 Studebaker were selected as the 2005 Ontario Street
Car Association's "Driver of the Year". Andreacchi, who posted a Runner-Up
finish in the season long points battle hopes to set up one more spot and
capture the title in 2006. Ralph posted 1 win and 3 runner-up finishes
during the 2005 season. He also set the OSCA Outlaw Street performance
records of 6.45 seconds @ 219 Mph. Those numbers are very impressive for a
car that sports muffled headers and tips the scales at 2900 lbs.
Andreacchi states, "I'm really honored to win this award. My team and I had
a really good rookie year. We still are in the learning stage of what it
takes to run this type of car. I can assure you one thing, it doesn't come
easy. A lot of hard work and hard-earned money goes into the Skull
Motorsportsracing operation. We are seriously looking for some sponsor
support in '06.
With a little support from a sponsor, I'm sure we can bring home the title
in'06. I'm confident that we can get into 6.30 elapsed time category.
With this said, I can't wait for the 2006 season to get here".
Andreacchi thanks many in his quest for title in 2005. He says, "Without
the loving support of my wife and kids I could never make this a reality.
Also Al Billes and the ABR racing crew, Jim Salemi at G-Force Race Cars,
and the OSCA.
