    I've had a few recent requests to repost this video. He's been offering sponsorships to a few alcohol racers.

    Take a look at the video, then you decide how 'legit' he is.....

    Few questions...
    2008 Murf McKinney Corvette?? Really...
    5.61 at 257 huh?

    Another video on his page shows a Wally on his car at a display...wonder where he got that?

    "I'd like to thank my sponsors, Mickey Thompson tires"
    Funny, looks like the rear tires say Hoosier to me!

    I bet if I had one of those chrome blower hats I could run 560s. And just think he's local. Maybe he'll be in div 4 meet next weekend and I could get some tips. Cool...daddy-O

    Up to a couple of weeks ago on his website he claimed that he had Puerto Rico's very own nitro funny car and dragster. But really they were Wilkerson's Impala and someone else's dragster with his logo photoshopped onto it. Now his website isn't working? hmmmm www.freakinricanmotorsports.com

    Last time I seen that dude he was selling T-shirts at State Capitol Dragway in Baton Rouge La. We were out testing and he came over like a BS salesman with a mouth full of samples. Told me he could get me a sponsership from Sprint. I gave him a card and told him to call when he had couple hundred k and the decals. Car still blank!!!

    I assume he got some free tankards to go with the shell stickers...

    Last time I heard of Ramos he was being promoted as the headline attraction for the all singing and dancing European Hot Rod Association that was supposed to be delivering all to European drag racing through Powerfest/Velocitytour... a quote from one of their PR guys might make you laugh (or weep)

    thanks for everything sal

    Ramos "offered" to pay for us to come run @ Norwalk night of fire next month. I called the track and they said "FREAKIN RICAN" who? he also had us "set up" to be the "official" ramos apparel spokespeople. Thanks alot you F-in jerk for wasting my time when I could have been looking for real sponsor. why do people play these kinds of games ? he could do some real damage to peoples reputations and credibility. do yourself a favor sal and never get near me. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Just so everyone knows....the above link was previously posted to www.freakingricanracing.com, but since the invoice was never paid to the web developer or sports marketing company, we pulled the site down. This link is only for portfolio use, so at least the designer can get "something" for his 40 hours of work.

    The sports marketing company is not connected to Freakin Rican, as their services are no longer needed since the millions of dollars of funding from Dubai and Shell. LOL

    I was fortunate enough to meet the fabulous one!!

    His car is an old firebird that he had body worked over to look like a corvette ! The motor is a steel block 427 with a 6:71 and he tells everyone it is 4000hp!! Yes I said it ! 4000 HORSE POWER!!! He claims to have billions that last year alone his apparel company made 2.4 billion and that he owns 16 homes has thousands of employees and is a part of the cabinet to the king of Dubai!! I have the emails directly from the horses ass to prove all of this so when he starts chirping about me being a crazy person and how I had no right to contact anyone he used as a reference , feel free to hit me up for the emails I will gladly send or post or both!! Oh yeah he is working on a $250 million dollar deal with WALMART and they are gonna put big cardboard cut outs of him in every walmart and sams club so keep a look out !! HAHAHAHAHAHA:eek:
