In the Beginning….
Peter Biondo was born in 1971 in Queens, New York. While growing up, playing hockey in local leagues around the neighborhood was how Peter spent a lot of his afternoons. On the weekends, Peter would go with his family to the drag races. It didn't take him long to figure out that drag racing was his passion.
Like any sport, drag racing gets in family bloodlines and passes down from one generation to the next. The Biondo family is a prime example of this. In the late 1960's Peter's father, Sam, competed regularly at the dragstrips. Since then Sam has won 8 track championships in the super pro ranks. Peter's older brother, Sal was the next to take the wheel. In 1984 Sal began competing and shortly thereafter Peter started his racing career. "My 16th birthday couldn't come soon enough, I've been watching my father since I was 2 years old and I was eager to take a shot at it!"
It was 1987 when Peter started racing in nothing other than with the family station wagon in the entry level class. Peter and his family spent many weekends traveling together to racetracks in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. According to Peter it was time well spent. "Sal and I would alternate driving the station wagon and we would watch my father compete in super pro. It kept us together on the weekends and was a lot of fun. I just knew it was something I wanted to be involved with for a long time."
Peter finished his education at St. Johns University with a bachelors degree in business management and a 3.2 GPA. Within those 4 years Peter was competing at the local bracket tracks and enjoyed a great deal of success, winning 3 consecutive super pro track championships at local tracks in New Jersey. It was then that he realized that he didn't just want to drag race as a hobby, he wanted to make it a way of life.
