» Chris McGaha NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Chris McGaha and Harlow Sammons team forging their own path in second half of 2014 season

(7-25-2014) SONOMA, CA – NHRA Pro Stock driver Chris McGaha truly is in the midst of a banner year as the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series digs into the second half of the season, and it hasn't been without challenge. The future, though, is something that is becoming even brighter for the Odessa, Texas-based competitor as he finds his own way.

"It has been bittersweet – not just for me, but for the whole team, the original crew," said McGaha. "Would we do it all over again if we could? Sometimes, we don't think we would."

The focus on McGaha's team has been tremendous since his acquisition of former Pro Stock world champion Mike Edwards' very decorated car and equipment, with big question marks hovering around their camp while speculation ran wild as to whether or not McGaha and the Harlow... [Read More]
» Drag Racing Best News Back To School Pro Mod Shootout Preview
Drag Racing Best News ready to bring Pro Mod action to Colonial Beach Dragstrip

(7-25-2014) COLONIAL BEACH, VA – Last August Drag Racing Best News put on the Back to School Jam event featuring a $5,000 winner-take-all Pro Mod Shootout. During the event, K&S productions decided to cover the event, which forged a new partnership between Drag Racing Best News & K&S Productions.

To be honest it's turned into a good friendship because we talk at least 3 or 4 times a week. Shawn Kelly and I respect the guys at DRBN's determination to put on the best show possible.

"We have always set our goals extremely high at giving the fans, tracks and racers the very best show possible, so working with Dean has been easy. We have plans for the future, and look forward to continuing this successful partnership," said Shawn Kelly from K&S Produtions.

Mike Janis Racing heads to PDRA Virginia

(7-24-2014) ELMA, NY – Pro Mod Driver Mike Janis and his Mike Janis Racing (MJR) racing team will be headed to the PDRA event in Richmond, Virginia July 25-26. Currently, Janis is sitting 2nd in the NHRA Pro Mod Championship points, only 11 points out of 1st. Janis is very excited to head over and race with all the great PDRA teams, but he will be taking a little different approach headed into the weekend.

“To say we plan on heading to Virginia in a conservative manner is far from the truth,” said Mike Janis Jr., GM/Crew Chief at MJR. “Other than the car and driver, I don't think there is a single component on the car that is the same as we have been running all year. We have a new Jan-Cen Racing Engines/Mike Janis Superchargers engine between the rails which we have worked very hard on in-house. The converter is different, the fuel pump is different, the...

Line on a roll as NHRA tour blasts into Sonoma

(7-24-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Last weekend, Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Jason Line made incredible gains in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro and saw reward for many hours of hard work put in at the race shop in Mooresville, N.C. This weekend, the two-time Sonoma winner will be looking to continue the steady upswing at the 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals in the heart of Northern California's wine country.

Qualifying in the No. 1 position last week in Denver – at one of the most challenging facilities on the tour due to high altitude, horsepower diminishing conditions – ramped up Line's confidence and that of the Summit Racing team. It was their first low qualifier award in a season that, for Line, has so far included a win and two additional final-round finishes.

"Last weekend was very encouraging for the KB Racing crew, so we're... [Read More]

Richmond race may rearrange PDRA points chase this weekend

(7-24-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – With four races left in its inaugural eight-race season, the all-eighth-mile Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) heads to Virginia Motorsports Park, near Richmond, this weekend (July 24-26), for the NAS Racing PDRA U.S. Drags. With 100 points available for each round win, each event continues to take on significance.

After winning all four previous events this year, though, it probably won’t concern Jason Harris, who has a stranglehold on the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous lead. At 2,211 points, the Pittsboro, NC-based racer has nearly double the points of his closest rival, Tommy Franklin (1,150), who is closely followed by Pat Stoken, class rookie Lizzy Musi and Tim Savell.

A trio of past world champions with a prior organization head up the star-studded NAS Racing Pro Extreme points list,... [Read More]
» Gray Motorsports NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Gray Motorsports seeking resurgence in Sonoma

(7-24-2014) DENVER, NC – This weekend's 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals should be time for resurgence for the Gray Motorsports NHRA Pro Stock team and drivers Shane Gray, Dave Connolly and Jonathan Gray. Last weekend in Denver, the mile-high thin air provided a tremendous challenge for the Pro Stock teams, but this weekend the tour returns to sea level Sonoma Raceway – and the conditions at the scenic facility nestled in the Northern California's wine country have been receptive to the Gray Motorsports group in the past.

Last season Shane had the fastest car on the property, and Dave has twice before seen the inside of the final round in Sonoma, once racing to victory. For top rookie of the year contender Jonathan, this season's event will mark his first time racing in California – but he arrives with confidence as he recalls his father... [Read More]
» Record-Setting Black Diamond Motorsports Team Looking To Finish Strong In 2014
Record-setting Black Diamond Motorsports team looking to finish strong in 2014

(7-23-2014) NORWALK, OH – With one win, two finals and a new world record in the books, the Black Diamond Motorsports duo of John DeFlorian and Kevin Bealko are looking to finish the 2014 season strong with only three races remaining. Currently, DeFlorian sits second in the standings behind two-time national event winner Cary Goforth, while Bealko is fifth.

Earlier this year, DeFlorian obliterated the IHRA speed record in Mountain Motor Pro Stock, a record which stood at 223.95 mph since 2008. The speed was topped on two separate occasions by the Arnold, Mo. native, ending with an outstanding 226.70 mph pass in the final. The run not only gave the driver of the BDMS Camaro the record, but it also helped propel DeFlorian to his first victory in IHRA competition at the San Antonio Nationals, as he bested Cary Goforth...

» NHRA Sonoma Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Preview
Pro Stock rookie Jonathan Gray has Countdown on the mind heading to NHRA Sonoma Nationals

(7-23-2014) SONOMA, CA – Jonathan Gray may be a rookie on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series circuit but the Pro Stock driver is also well aware of the situation he is in heading into the second race of the three-week NHRA Western Swing.

By every account Gray has had a banner rookie season, advancing to two final rounds. He is currently 10th in points despite not making his first start until the third race of the 2014 season, but longtime Pro Stock force Greg Anderson trails Gray by just 23 points.

Gray must either hold off the four-time world champion or continue his own climb up the standings to advance to the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship in his first season, which makes this weekend’s 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway that much more important.

» IHRA's Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series Debuts Brand New Website
IHRA's Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series debuts brand new, modernized website

(7-23-2014) NORWALK, OH – The International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) and IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG) unveiled a brand-new website this week for the series' popular Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series.

With a fresh, modernized look, the new www.NitroJam.com features news, stats, photo galleries and more from IHRA's popular national drag racing series. In addition to a new, easy-to-use interface, the new Nitro Jam website is also smart phone and tablet compatible and includes a number of new features which makes following your favorite drag racing series easier than ever.

"As we continue to grow the IHRA and the Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series, we need a website and supporting media that represent that growth and excitement," said Scott Gardner, President of... [Read More]

Ready for Sonoma, Morgan leaves dirty laundry in Denver

(7-23-2014) NEWARK, OH – Lucas Oil Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan left his dirty laundry in Denver -- literally.

The veteran driver headed back to his shop in Newark, Ohio, with cylinder heads in his suitcase instead. He wanted to do some more work to prepare for the NHRA Sonoma Nationals this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

"I'm leaving my dirty clothes in Denver," Morgan said. "We took them out of the suitcase so we could put some cylinder heads in. I was welding all day Monday, fixing heads."

The extra work was needed because Sonoma is at sea level, as compared to Denver's mile-high altitude. That's important because the thin Denver air makes engine builders like Morgan fret, as engines groan without the oxygen they have at sea level.

Morgan, in fact, had a better engine on his hauler in Denver but... [Read More]
» Greg Anderson NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Anderson returns to capitalize on personal history in Sonoma

(7-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson has a reason to be confident heading into this weekend's 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Just a handful of days ago in Denver, the driver of the white Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro powered to his best qualifying performance of the season, and on raceday he was up to the task as he once again proved his driving capabilities and left his competitors at the starting line. Add to his recent success behind the wheel the fact that he is the winningest Pro Stock driver at Sonoma Raceway and it seems apparent that all of the key ingredients are present.

"We're very, very much looking forward to getting to Sonoma," said Anderson. The Mooresville, N.C.-based driver has won a record four times at Sonoma Raceway, most recently in 2011, and in 2012 he came up just a tad shy... [Read More]
» Jeg Coughlin Jr. NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
From a mile high to sea level, reigning champ Coughlin readies for Sonoma

(7-22-2014) DELAWARE, OH – The annual transition from the mile-high altitude of Denver to Sonoma Valley's oxygen-rich, sea-level climes in just four days remains one of the biggest challenges in professional drag racing. But five-time and reigning world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. and his JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge Dart consider the challenge the perfect time to shine.

"Sonoma is a lot like Denver as far as looking out your window and seeing some of the most beautiful terrain in the country," Coughlin said. "The main difference is that Sonoma is 5,000 feet closer to sea level, so our Dodge Dart will be chomping at the bit to unleash some horsepower.

"After feeling that struggle we all have in the thin air up there in Denver, I can't wait to let the clutch out that first run in Sonoma. Most likely, we'll post... [Read More]
» Team JEGS Buckeye Fuel Wars Race Report
Meghan, Kelly Coughlin lead family's race weekend at National Trail

(7-22-2014) HEBRON, OH – Although they were competing for the first time in their respective categories, sisters Meghan and Kelly Coughlin turned in the most memorable performances of the Buckeye Fuel Wars NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at National Trail Raceway.

Making her Sportsman debut in her uncle Jeg Coughlin Jr.'s Chevy II wagon in the Super Street category, Meghan got things started Friday night in the special Moser Shootout, which included competitors from all of the Super classes. The 26-year-old, who last raced nearly two decades ago in a Jr. Dragster, managed to reach the semifinals before rain washed out the remainder of the action. She and the other semifinalists eventually decided to split the pot four ways.

"Just getting a single round-win was my goal for the weekend, honestly," Meghan... [Read More]

Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals most iconic moments: Muldowney triumphant in 1982 Top Fuel final

(7-22-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – On Sept. 6, 1982 at Indianapolis, Shirley Muldowney captured the greatest victory of her outstanding Top Fuel career.

Already a two-time Top Fuel world champion and winner of 15 national events, Muldowney’s history-making victory at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in 1982 against her former companion and crew chief Connie Kalitta was by far the most satisfying win of her career.

It was the first win for a female at Indy, and it would be Muldowney’s only victory at the world’s most prestigious drag race. The win propelled her on to a third world championship title by season’s end.

At the time, Muldowney called the win, “the race of my life.”

During the weeks leading up to the running of the Chevrolet Performance... [Read More]

Flamholc wins at Malmö, clinches Pro Extreme series title

(7-22-2014) MALMÖ, SE – Another great weekend is over, and we are looking forward to the next one!

Four wins in four races so far this season for us! We qualified as number one with a 3.84s 207.5mph (new European speed record for an outlaw car) and ended up winning the race after three really strong runs on Sunday. This means that we won the Pro Extreme series with one race to go!

I'm so happy for the guys in my team, they work hard, and never see a problem, just opportunities!

I'm so fortunate to have a family that understands and supports me, when I'm out racing! I'm so thankful to the companies that support us! Please support them! You are all apart of our success!!!!

THANK YOU ALL!

But the season is not over yet! Tomorrow evening (Wednesday) we are heading up to Tierp for one of... [Read More]
