TonyM wrote:Guys I saw Sheldon race at Bradenton a few years ago. There was a short guy with a big belly there. Is that Rishi Kanick?

I saw Rishi saying on facebook that Sheldon held him back. What does he mean by that? I was told that Sheldon built and tuned all of Rishi's race cars. I was also told that Sheldon never charged him a cent. All of Sheldon's time and effort was for the love and passion of the sport. Another thing Rishi said on facebook was that he went after Sheldon's international record. Seriously?

Here is the post from facebook

I did some research and found Sheldon's accomplishments. I never knew that one racer in one lifetime could accomplish so much and to know its a trini makes me proud. People keep asking me how one guy from T&T can come to the US and win so many races and set so many records. Sheldon Bissessar's name is very well known in the US racing community.

Which one of these records did the Rishi guy break?

Here's what I found so far Sheldon Bissessar received the ' Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Americas Award' for outstanding performance in Drag Racing (2012)
1st Motorsport FCB Sportsman of the year Nominee to make it in the top ten - 2008, 2009 and 2011
2011 TV6 Sport Personality of the Year
Over 50 Internation Drag Racing Round Wins in the US
Over 10 International Drag Racing Event Wins in the US
IHRA Top Dragster E.T. World Record
IHRA Top Dragster Speed World Record
IHRA Top Dragster 1/8mile E.T. World Record
Pro Extreme Dragster Record
Pro Top Outlaw Dragster Record
Open Outlaw Record
Ultimate Dragster Record
Mt Park Dragway Track Record
London Dragway Track Record
Sunshine Dragstrip Track Record
Wallerfield Track Record
Camden Track Record

I also heard that Sheldon ran the first 9,8,7,6 and 5 sec. passes and that he's preparing for a 3 second class.
I have never seen Sheldon stating in his accomplishments that he was the 'fastest trini'.

FYI he is claiming to be driving a Top Fuel Dragster, if that is the case Kanick definitely broke the fastest time by a trini driving a Top Fuel Dragster!
Top Alcohol beating Top Fuel.... Hahahahahaha

Lawd, all you Satan worshippers are so blinded by your own biases......

Do you think any Professional NHRA Drivers own cars they Drive? I don't even think any of you commenting own a racecar moreover to drive one. Yet talking like alyuh is some authority.....

TonyM shut up..... Guys be productive and do the same...
