2018 Top Sportsman & Top Dragster National Champions

Eugene, OR is where the TD #1 went back to as Paul Nero started the season out with a bang and had his championship score wrapped up by mid July. Starting in Pomona, CA with a rd2 loss, Nero then went on to “double-up” at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, AZ 2 weeks later grabbing 241 points and 2 wins in his 1st 3 events. After a somewhat disappointing outtingRead More

Devin Isenhower Brings the Super Gas Championship to D3

Slow and steady was the name of the game for newly crowned Super Gas World Champion Devin Isenhower, as he steadily racked up points from the beginning of the D3 season in May to the very end in October to earn the #1. Throughout the year Isenhower swept the NHRA events at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis including the covenant Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, while also adding a pair of finalRead More

Top Sportsman/Top Dragster now 6.10 Max ET

While racecars are always evolving, slowing them down or getting engine builders and drivers to literally stop making them faster is NEVER going to happen. The days of turning off the throttle stop on your .90 car to run wide open in these classes have been gone, blowers, nitrous, and pro chargers are a must to compete with these guys and thats why the cut to get into these 36Read More

Brian McClanahan Completes his Families Championship Trio

The biggest sportsman point total of the season was in Stock Eliminator, by not only 1 but 3 different drivers had the rest of the categories covered and would have won championships. Jeff Taylor put up a stout 654 but was only good enough for 3rd place, putting up a whopping 689 was Justin Lamb and would have captured his 6th World Title but Brian McClanahan came out on topRead More

Justin Lamb Is #1 Again

The reigning Stock & Super Stock world champ Justin Lamb entered the 2018 season as a 4-time NHRA Lucas Oil World Champion, with little to no plans of pursuing another anytime soon. Instead running his usual national schedule and taking time in-between events to spend with his wife and kids, but his 5th world title kind of fell into his lap when he won 3 of his first 4 nationalRead More

Frank Aragona Jr. 2018 Comp National Champion

Winning a World Championship in any driver’s career would have to be his or her biggest accomplishment, Frank Aragona Jr will now have the #1 on his car for the 2nd time in his career. Aragona started his season off in Orlando, FL as many drivers from the north do when we want to ditch the snow for a few weeks and relive the bright thing in the sky. HeRead More

Like It or Not 2018 Has Come To a Close

End of the season blues may have already started for some drivers (like myself), while others may be glad its over and looking forward to 2019 to bounce back, regardless of what the feelings are the Auto Club NHRA Finals are now again in the books. Only a few Championships were still up in the air coming into the event, with 1 being Competition Eliminator and when registration closed onRead More

Las Vegas 2.0

Back on the left coast for the 2nd trip to Las Vegas, NV (this one only being 2-wide) for the Toyota Nationals, which turned out to be a beautiful place for all racers entered to spend their Halloween weekend with warm weather and absolutely no rain.

“Take 2”-wide at ZMAX

The last east coast race of 2018 has now come and gone as we visited the beautiful ZMAX dragway for the 2nd time at the Carolina Nationals. What looked to be an event that would have a lot of D1&D2 racers excited for, turned into somewhat of a chore to attend, thanks to Hurricane Florence & Michael. With 3-4″ of rain forecasted on stacking day and people already recovering fromRead More

AAA Insurance Texas Fall Nationals Recap

The 21/24 stop on the 2018 NHRA Mellow Yellow tour brought us to Texas Motorplex in Dallas, TX for the final AAA Insurance sponsored event, the Fall Nationals. This event always has great racing temperatures with some of the best competition you can have coming out of D4, until we jinx it with this years forecast. The racing itself was ran smooth and went right along start to finish, butRead More

AAA Insurance Midwest Nationals Recap

The 20th stop on the 2018 NHRA Mellow Yellow tour brought us to Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis, MO for the 1st half of the AAA Insurance sponsored events.

With only 4 races left, every driver is looking to get in theirRead More

Another Typical National at Maple Grove Raceway

Can anyone disagree? Another typical Maple Grove, rain, mud, potentially finishing on Monday, 1 time trial and go, those are things that are associated with this race for an far as I can remember plus some. I’m just going to have to say that last year was a complete fluke when the forecast did not have a drop of rain in the area and we had one of the more pleasantRead More
