FireAde's Morgan all smiles after semifinal at career race No. 599

(5-25-2015) TOPEKA, KS – FireAde Racing driver Larry Morgan moved up to sixth in points in the ultra-competitive Pro Stock class with a semifinal finish at the NHRA Kansas Nationals on Sunday at Heartland Park Topeka.

Morgan lost to eventual race winner Erica Enders, but after qualifying No. 4 and racing to the semifinals, he was all smiles.

"I'm excited," Morgan said. "We had a good weekend. We run here and we're not used to all this crazy weather. The tune-up was just off. We had a good day and I'm excited for FireAde. We are getting more rounds in and getting more TV time and people are becoming more aware of what FireAde is. Everybody ought to have one in their house."

The No. 4 qualifying position was Morgan's highest since 2007, and his semifinal appearance helped him move up one spot in the... [Read More]
» Gray Motorsports NHRA Kansas Nationals Race Report
Gray Motorsports drivers on their game on raceday in Topeka

(5-25-2015) TOPEKA, KS – The forecast for the 26th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals looked grim, but amazingly, the race concluded on Sunday as scheduled. Gray Motorsports team drivers Shane Gray and Jonathan Gray were unfazed by the gloomy weather reports and persistent threat of rain that stretched racing far into the day. Both drivers were at the top of their game despite the delay and won their respective first-round matches, and both continued to fight right on into the second round.

Although neither driver emerged victorious, both showed prowess and bright promise that can only complement their program as it continues to develop. In the end, Jonathan inched a bit closer to the top 10 in NHRA's Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock standings, and Shane Gray maintained a berth – No. 9 – in the coveted top 10.

» Greg Anderson NHRA Kansas Nationals Final Race Report
Anderson races to fourth final of the season at NHRA Kansas Nationals

(5-24-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Greg Anderson has a great record at Heartland Park Topeka, and this weekend at the 27th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals, he continued his strong string of performances with a final-round finish in his red Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro – his second in a row. Anderson, of Mooresville, N.C., maintained the No. 3 position in the NHRA Pro Stock points and looks to keep steaming ahead into the busy summer, when racing really heats up.

"We had a good day today, but it wasn't the perfect day we had hoped for. Almost, but not quite," said Anderson, who raced Erica Enders in the final round for the fifth time. "We were one peg short last week when Jason won, and this week we were one peg short – but we're going to get my Summit Racing Chevy Camaro back in the winner's circle, and we'll do it again soon. We're still... [Read More]

(5-24-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Funny Car racer Jack Beckman finished off a record-setting weekend of racing at Heartland Park Topeka Sunday by claiming a victory over category icon John Force at the NHRA Kansas Nationals.

Richie Crampton (Top Fuel) and Erica Enders (Pro Stock) also were winners of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.

Beckman used a pair of 3.9-second runs to outrun Courtney Force and John Hale in earlier rounds and then beat Del Worsham in a close semifinal before speeding to another three-second run to oust the 16-time world champ in the final round. Prior to that, Beckman clocked three-second runs in two of the three rounds of qualifying on Friday and Saturday.

Just how quick were the Funny Cars at Topeka? There were 19 three-second runs in the entire 2014 season and just... [Read More]

(5-24-2015) LANCASTER, NY – Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway played host to the first race of the year for the Joe's Transmission TNT Hot Rod Super Series. It was the first of three visits to Lancaster's 1/8-mile IHRA drag strip scheduled by the TNT Super Series.

Paul Young took home the season opening win in his 1966 Ford Fairlane after Jeff Sobczynski red lighted in the final round.

In regular Franco's Pizza Friday Night IHRA Drag Racing action, Jan Winkowski of Cheektowaga bested the field in McGard Top ET in a heads up final against Jeff Sobczysnki. Sobczysnki found himself on the losing end of the final round for a second time as Winkowski beat him with a 7.006 second elapsed time to Sobczysnki's 7.017.

FireAde driver Morgan snares best qualifying spot since 2007

(5-23-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Steaming toward 600 races in his NHRA career, FireAde Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan is showing no signs of slowing down.

In his 599th career race, Morgan snared the No. 4 qualifying spot for the NHRA Kansas Nationals this weekend at Heartland Park Topeka. That's his best qualifying effort since going No. 2 in Gainesville, Fla., in 2007 (he was also No. 4 in Dallas in 2009 and Seattle in 2007). His official qualifying run was a 6.533 at 211.10 mph.

"It does feel good to qualify well because you know that you've got something worth racing," Morgan said. "We have that, with the help of FireAde and all the good people who are behind me with this deal and all the good help I have between my team and the Gray team. It's gratifying for us."

But Morgan, the eternal optimist, was hoping... [Read More]
» Jason Line NHRA Kansas Nationals Saturday Update
Line starting from No. 5 position following rain-halted Topeka qualifying

(5-23-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Jason Line and the Summit Racing NHRA Pro Stock team were pleased to make three qualifying runs at Heartland Park Topeka, and they certainly would have liked a fourth pass to get their final tune-up for raceday, but rain moved into the area and called for a halt to the action. The field was set with Line in the No. 5 position and ready for a first-round match-up with V. Gaines on Sunday at the 27th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals.

Line clocked a clean 6.537-second pass at 210.83 mph in the first session that was fourth quickest, and he came back on Friday afternoon with a 6.535, 210.67. Saturday dawned with an unwelcoming forecast, but rain held off for much of the day. However, conditions weren't quite as conducive to quick and fast passes as the teams had hoped, and no one improved in the third and... [Read More]

(5-23-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Second-generation driver Chad Head will race for his first career Funny Car victory Sunday at the NHRA Kansas Nationals from the No. 1 qualifying position.

Antron Brown (Top Fuel) and Erica Enders (Pro Stock) also remained at the top of their categories based on their Friday qualifying performances and will lead their categories into Sunday’s 11 a.m. eliminations at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.

Head captured his second career No. 1 qualifying position and first since 2013 Saturday at Heartland Park Topeka based on his Friday track record time of 3.967 seconds in his Head Racing Toyota Camry. No one was able to improve on his performance Saturday as teams got one qualifying attempt in before rain washed out the final qualifying session. The time is the... [Read More]

Brown, Head and Enders are Mello Yello Series qualifying leaders at NHRA Kansas Nationals

(5-22-2015) TOPEKA, KS – Top Fuel points leader Antron Brown raced to the qualifying lead Friday at the NHRA Kansas Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka.

Chad Head (Funny Car) and Erica Enders (Pro Stock) also were qualifying leaders at the season’s eighth of 24 events in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

In unseasonably cool conditions, Brown powered his Matco Tools dragster to a track record time of 3.727 seconds at 313.37 mph to lead the class. Brown, who won last weekend in Atlanta, is looking for his second consecutive victory and third of the season.

“When we came in here this track was an unknown variable,” said Brown, who has been the No. 1 qualifier twice at Topeka. “My hat’s off to the NHRA and the Safety Safari for getting this track going. Cars haven’t ran here... [Read More]

(5-22-2015) TOPEKA, KS – The first day of qualifying for the 27th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals has Greg Anderson in a very good position. The driver of the red Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro wheeled his fast racecar to the provisional No. 2 spot on Friday at Heartland Park Topeka, and with an ever-increasing program, he and his KB Racing crew are looking forward to another two shots at the Kansas drag strip before the field is set.

In the first round of qualifying, Anderson was strong and able. He powered down the quarter-mile racetrack to a quick and fast 6.526-second pass at 211.20 mph that brought home two bonus qualifying points and placed him in the No. 2 position in the lineup.

Tommy D’Aprile gets set for PDRA return with new perspective

(5-22-2015) PITTSBORO, NC – For seven years Tommy D’Aprile was the hired gun for Mel Bush Motorsports. When a turn of events sidelined D’Aprile early this year, he quickly turned what could have been viewed as a sour situation into a positive, character-building opportunity.

“You know how racing is: here today and gone tomorrow,” D’Aprile told. “This was a faith-growing tool for me. The focus was not on what was taken away, but being thankful for all that I had. This wasn’t anything that was bad. This was a business decision for Mel to help him afford to run his racing program. Mel and I never had a falling out. I was discouraged and disappointed a bit, but that’s just normal.”

D’Aprile is fully immersed in the sport, not only as a driver, but also as a race chaplain with God Speed Ministry and columnist for Drag... [Read More]
