» Larry Morgan NHRA Northwest Nationals Preview
Morgan's continued improvemen​ts could change Seattle outcome

(7-29-2014) NEWARK, OH – With a new engine that will arrive in time for this weekend's O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Northwest Nationals, Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan is ready to turn his luck around this season at Pacific Raceways.

"We've done pretty good up there over the years," Morgan said. "I've been to some semifinals a few times. I'd just like to get past the first round this time. I need to have a little luck."

While the Lucas Oil Ford Mustang has had its share of crazy rides during the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, Morgan is hoping that things will finally look up for him and his team when they unload for qualifying in Seattle.

"We haven't really recovered since some problems we had in Topeka (Kan.)," Morgan said. "Once you get behind, man, it's hard to get it back with how... [Read More]

Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals most iconic moments: Mongoose finally beats The Snake

(7-28-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen and Don “The Snake” Prudhomme were two of the fiercest rivals in NHRA Funny Car history. However, for most of the time, Prudhomme came out on the winning end in their legendary side-by-side races.

It was a different story, however, in the 1978 Funny Car final at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Indy.

This time, the Mongoose finally got the Snake.

Spurred on by sheer emotion following the passing of his 14-year-old son Jamie weeks earlier to Leukemia, McEwen had what he called “the race of my life” and was able to defeat Prudhomme to earn his only victory in the world’s most prestigious drag race.

“It was a sad situation,” McEwen has said. “I was really bummed, but one of the last things (Jamie)... [Read More]

(7-28-2014) SONOMA, CA – Greg Anderson saw this weekend's 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals as a time to make up ground in his quest to break into the top 10 in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock standings, and the driver of the Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro continued to close the gap with his best qualifying start of the year that came with a set of bonus points.

» Jeg Coughlin Jr. NHRA Sonoma Nationals Final Race Report
Semifinal finish helps Coughlin clinch Countdown to the Championsh​ip berth

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – A strong semifinal run in Sunday's NHRA Sonoma Nationals resulted in reigning Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. earning his ticket to this year's six-race Countdown to the Championship, which begins in mid-September.

» Larry Morgan NHRA Sonoma Nationals Final Race Report
Morgan can't overcome Anderson's fast start in Sonoma

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – Lucas Oil Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan knew he was in trouble right at the Christmas Tree.

In the first round of the NHRA Sonoma Nationals on Sunday at Sonoma Raceway against four-time Pro Stock champion Greg Anderson, Morgan watched Anderson immediately pull away.

"When I let the clutch out, it didn't go anywhere," Morgan said. "I watched Greg Anderson put five car lengths on me -- five. He drove around me like I was stopped."

Morgan and his team had installed a new engine in their Ford Mustang for Sunday's eliminations after the race motor burned a piston Saturday during the third qualifying session.

The backup engine had not been run, which meant Morgan had to use an untested tune-up, too. He recorded a 6.693 at 206.64 mph, but Anderson ran away to victory with a pass... [Read More]
