“When the show’s producer called and asked if I’d be interested in helping Jay Leno learn to drive a Super Comp Dragster I said absolutely, without even asking for details,” said Frank Hawley. “I grew up watching Leno…I’m a really big fan. They teamed me up with one of our former grads and a good friend, Erica Enders. Erica is so talented, it was great working with her,” said Hawley. “Jay’s love of cars is genuine and he made it very comfortable for Erica and me.”
“Frank and I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with Jay. He’s a great guy and his love for cars matched ours. We had a lot of fun. I hope everyone watches the show.” said Erica.
