Team Mopar Australia's main man and mini-me racer, Lee and Leon Bektash, head to Adelaide this weekend in the same transporter at the same time and with the same goal – to clean up at the Spring Nationals.

Bektash senior has had a late season charge with victory at the 2013 Nitro Champs and it's form he is looking to continue with and even share with son Leon.

Leon Bektash - Junior Dragster"I love winning," explained Lee "but I think I would be twice as happy for Leon if he were to take home some trophies."

"Drag racing is very much a family sport and racing with my son is one of the many things that I love about this sport. It's pretty amazing to be able to do this with my boy," explain an obviously proud Lee.

Team Mopar debuted an ex-Allan Johnson Racing Chrysler imported from the US earlier this year and this is the first time Bektash will have the new car in Adelaide.

"The air (air conditions make a huge difference in the performance of Pro Stock cars) in Adelaide is amazing and Rino and the Racing Onn Crew have done a great job with the track. Now it's time for us to entertain some South Australian fans the best way we know how – at over 300km per hour!"

Leon was equally keen to get onto the track.

"I'm still starting off but I'm lucky to have my Dad and a great crew working to help get me down the track, so I have to say thank you to the Ward family. I'm still learning but it the bets fun ever!" concluded Leon.

The Lady Daly Springnationals will be held at Adelaide International Raceway, Supple Road Virginia, this weekend September 21 and 22.
