He later backed up this record officially in the 3rd round of qualifying, after an amazing transmission rebuild which was finished with only minutes to spare.

The following night Bissessar wowed the sold-out stands with consistent five-second passes to advance to the finals against Edward "Fast Eddie" Careccia. Careccia, in an effort to take every extra millisecond tripped the lights early as Bissessar rocketed through a [email protected] run to take the win and the Elite 8 trophy! IHRA officials were definitely taking notice of the outlaw-looking machine and its consistent pilot and even the President of IHRA himself, Aaron Polburn came down to have a word with Sheldon, expressing his congratulations and inviting him to race with the IHRA again throughout the coming year.
