Not long ago, I told you about intolerant Gulf state Muslim sheikhs buying up Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Now, they are trying to dominate drag racing on our shores . . . and having some success at it. It’s all part of the Gulf states’ bid to become tourism and entertainment champs, since the oil supplies of several of the Gulf states are fast depleting and they need a new source of revenue to support thousands of royal family members. Plus, they want us to think they are just like us, so they are trying to dominate down-home American pastimes to make themselves look less like the extremists that they are. The latest target is good, old-fashioned American drag-racing.
Qatari Prince Sheikh Khalid: Extremist Al-Jazeera-ist Spent Millions to Win U.S. Hot Rod
22-year-old snot-nosed Sheik Khalid bin Hamad Al-Thani, Prince of Qatar (the Al-Thani family is the ruling royal family of Qatar), spent $10 million in 2009 alone for his Al-Anabi Drag Racing team, which, Sunday, clinched the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Top Fuel division championship, via driver Larry Dixon in Pomona, California. The Prince’s family finances Al-Jazeera, the Terrorist News Network, which helped Al-Qaeda kill our soldiers. It’s sad, but not surprising, to see how easily drivers and racing biggies like engineer Alan Johnson and Dixon will sell themselves out to these people.
But the driver isn’t named Mohammed Al-Dixon. It’s Larry Dixon. These Muslim Sheikhs may be funding the team, but its American skills, not their oil blood money that makes championship drivers. Dixon has won before without the young anti-Israel Sheikh’s money and backing, but, again, it’s disgusting how easily these racing people can be bought off by Jew-hating bigots who won’t allow Israeli Jews into their country. More:
After falling just two points painfully shy of the NHRA Full Throttle Top Fuel championship last year to decade-long rival Tony Schumacher, Larry Dixon and the Al-Anabi team finished the job on their second try, concluding a dominating 2010 season by locking up the championship Sunday at the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals. . . .
“I’ve never had so much excitement for a first-round win in my life,” said Dixon. “What an awesome job by the team all year. It was one round today, but it was all the great rounds that we’ve had in previous races, the second rounds, the semifinals, a lot of wins, and they’ve all added up to this point. Credit to Alan Johnson, Sheik Khalid, Jason McCulloch, and the entire Al-Anabi crew. Everybody pitches in to make this happen, and this is it, this is what we do it for.”
The championship is the third for Dixon, who won back-to-back titles in 2002 and 2003 while driving for Don Prudhomme, and the ninth in the class for team manager Johnson, who tuned Schumacher to five straight titles (2004-08) before leaving Don Schumacher Racing for the 2009 season to lead the new Al-Anabi operation owned by His Highness Sheik Khalid Al Thani of Qatar. Johnson also tuned Gary Scelzi to three Top Fuel crowns (1997-98, 2000) and won four world championships in Top Alcohol Dragster with his late brother, Blaine. It’s the seventh championship for crew chief McCulloch, who was the assistant crew chief under Johnson with Schumacher and was on Cruz Pedregon’s Funny Car championship team in 1992, but his first title as crew chief.
Anyone with poisonous oil money can buy a team. But no known Muslim–let alone a bigoted Gulf State sheikh–has won one of these races as a driver. Don’t hold your breath for that to happen. They may have the very common cha-ching, but they just ain’t got the skills. . . unless you count HATE TV a/k/a Al-Jazeera.
And hate isn’t a skill.
