Quarter Mile Foundation To Raffle Mondello ‘Vintage Rat’ Engine for PROJECT 1320


“Mary and I discussed the Project 1320 Raffle Engine and with Joe’s crew at the Mondello Technical Center,” said Hrudka. “Everyone at the Technical Center is fully committed to completing the engine well in advance of the drawing. Mary told me, ‘Joe would want this engine finished. It will be a wonderful tribute and a great honor for Joe to memorialize this engine in his name.’”
