CPTV FEATURE - SIDETRACKED WITH MELANIE SALEMI, A FULL SEASON
Racing isn't something we do to get sidetracked from life. Racing is life. Sidetracked is racing. Sidetracked is a video mini-feature series showcasing Melanie Salemi, and her Strange Engineering-sponsored PDRA Pro Boost team. Catch up on the full season below.
THE 2017 YEAR IN REVIEW, EPISODE 8
EVAN. EPISODE 7
One of our crew members may only be in his teens, but he's a great asset, and an even better son.
BETWEEN RACES, EPISODE 6
There's a lot more to racing than what you may see at the track. We're usually only home for a couple days between races, but we still have to perform maintenance and inspection tasks on the car, as well as preparing for the next race.
FRIENDS AND FMAILY, EPISODE 5
Most races take place hours away from home, so we couldn't pass up a chance to race near home. We had dozens of friends and family visit from all over Western New York, Southern Ontario, and eastern Canada.
CANADA DAY WITH GORDON SALEMI, EPISODE 4
We spent Canada Day in my homeland, celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary at Toronto Motorsports Park. Whenever we're in Canada, we get to enjoy spending time with our cousin, Gordie Salemi.
FOR THE FANS, EPISODE 3
This is what drag racing is all about: the fans. Melanie loves racing, but if no one was there to support it, cheer them on, and visit them in the pit, it wouldn't be the same.
IS MELANIE GOING TO ARUBA?, EPISODE 2
Melanie's husband, Jon, says he'll take her to Aruba if she wins.
A BET'S A BET, EPISODE 1
When Jim Beadling bet Melanie Salemi that his parachute button wouldn't cost him a run, he didn't realize how quickly he'd lose that bet.
