Zappia hoping for more Nationals success

(10-30-2014) EASTERN CREEK, NSW – Seven times back-to-back Australian Top Doorslammer Champion John Zappia has his eye on some quick times this weekend at the ANDRA “Blow Your Mind” Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway. The pressure is off after he claimed the championship last meeting in Adelaide, and the country’s quickest Top Doorslammer driver is all fired up.

“Sydney is a special place for the team,” said Zappia. “We have often gone quick there and the Fuchs/Striker Crushing Monaro likes the track. Running the world’s first five-second pass is a great memory for the crew, as were the Nationals wins in 2007 and 2013. So we are keen to do well here this weekend to cap off a great season.”

The team comes off the back of some solid testing in Perth recently, where Zap rattled off a 5.778 in testing.

“We have continued testing... [Read More]

Mike Janis Racing ready to beat all odds in Vegas; Winning is the only option

(10-30-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – When Mike Janis and his MJR Team roll through the gates for the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals this weekend, there is only one option: WIN. It's plain and simple: Janis sits 3rd in the NHRA Pro Mod Championship points standings. Sitting only one point out of 2nd, and 77 points behind leader Rickie Smith, Janis and team will need to go the distance by winning the event and hoping for Rickie Smith to make an exit in the first round.

“It's very plain and simple for us this coming weekend, we need to win the event and hope Rickie Smith goes out first round,” said Mike Janis, Owner/Driver at MJR.

“We plan on being the biggest thorn in the side of Rickie that he has ever felt. Rickie and I are good friends at the track, but it's time we take the Championship away from the South and bring it... [Read More]
» Jim Bell NHRA Toyota Nationals Preview
Bell's goal is to end NHRA season on a high note

(10-30-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – The final NHRA Pro Mod race is this weekend at Las Vegas and Jim Bell and the JB's Power Centre Pro Mod team hope to end the season on a high note.

The 2014 season was full of 'Highs and Lows' for Jim and the team, from the opening event at Gainesville where Jim qualified with one of his quickest et's all season, to the low point where he had to miss the Houston event due to a crash the week earlier in Rockingham. The new Camaro that replaced the Mustang (due to the crash) performed well on many occasions, but it also threw them a few curve balls. Englishtown was a highlight, including a round one win and a career best 5.92. Unfortunately there were four DNQs along the way. No one said it was going to be easy especially when you consider that Jim has been going up the best in the business in Pro Mod racing typically 24-30... [Read More]

Stanley & Weiss Racing year end review

(10-30-2014) HAGERSTOWN, MD – Another year has gone by in the latest racing career of Stanley & Weiss Racing. It has seen a myriad of changes take place for our team that have been good for all but have set us off on a new path. We made the conscious decision last winter to change our motor combination over to something similar to what the "hitters" are using.

We also upgraded our great record setting NRE Blackhawk heads to the new NRE Superman heads along with their new matching billet intake. This combination created a whole lot more bottom end power than our old combination and threw us out into left field with all these changes.

We persevered through the first half of the season seemingly slowly making gains. The fact that we had connecting rods falling into the oil pan over no apparent reason on several different occasions did not... [Read More]

Blown Money 'Mob Edition' on display at Mirage Hotel and Casino during NHRA Toyota Nationals

(10-30-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – The history of Las Vegas’ connection to organized crime has been the subject of many books and feature films. Alleged 'Mobsters' Bugsy Siegal and Meyer Lansky sometimes received credit for creating the 'Modern Day Vegas'. If you leave their 'connections' aside and look at their dreams of a paradise in the middle of a desert; you will see what was the drive within them that became VEGAS!

The drive and dedication shown by the men who chose to invest in early Vegas is what gave NHRA Pro Modified team owner, Mike Knowles, the idea to create the 'Mob Edition' Mustang. The 'Mob Edition' Mustang, built by Tim McAmis race cars and HAND PAINTED by Jeff Hoskins, features many famous scenes and people including it’s driver, Al Capone. The attention to detail on this car is... [Read More]

Rickie Smith hoping to hold off Coughlin, Janis to claim second straight world championship at NHRA Toyota Nationals

(10-30-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – Rickie Smith knows what he needs to do to wrap up a second straight NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series world championship. Mike Janis and Troy Coughlin also know that a major upset is still possible, and Coughlin has his own incredible comeback story to prove it.

Combined, it makes for a pair of thrilling storylines heading into the final event of the 2014 NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series this weekend’s NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Smith currently leads Coughlin by 76 points and Janis by 77 points and only needs a first-round win to lock up a second straight title in the highly-competitive NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series.

“We just have to treat it like a normal race, make sure we go everything... [Read More]
» Larry Morgan NHRA Toyota Nationals Preview
Break gave Morgan time to fine-tune his Lucas Oil Mustang

(10-29-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – The three weeks away from the racetrack were put to good use by Larry Morgan and his Lucas Oil Ford Mustang Pro Stock team.

Instead of simply getting ready for the next race, this weekend's NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Morgan and his team spent time they usually don't get during the season on a little research and development.

"The break was good for us," Morgan said. "The break was good for everybody."

Morgan's Mustang was examined and re-examined, with small details the focus instead of a simple car tune-up.

"We fixed a lot of things that were wrong with the car that we had overlooked," Morgan said. "We've just been preparing for the last two races. We're looking forward to it, to be honest with you. It's all good."

2014 IHRA Super Stock champion - Scotty Stillings

(10-29-2014) NORWALK, OH – Scotty Stillings is a five-time IHRA World Champion.

He won his first championships as a kid in the late 90s. His third and fourth titles came in the mid-2000s as he grew into a regular in the ranks of Super Stock. But it is his fifth title, won earlier this year at the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment World Finals at Memphis International Raceway, that stands as the most unique of his championship collection.

While every championship has its own unique set of circumstances, some won in the final passes of a season, others dominated from start to finish, it was Stillings' championship in Memphis that served as his first taste of victory in the Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions, which has been deciding IHRA's sportsman champions since 2009.

"It is completely different, that is for sure,"... [Read More]
» Dan Ferguson Beats The Odds To Clinch PDRA Top Sportsman Championship
Dan Ferguson beats the odds to clinch PDRA Top Sportsman championship

(10-29-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – Dan Ferguson is a college student who took to the sport of drag racing a few short years ago. In that span of time, he’s worked his way up to the top level of sportsman door car racing. For the most part, Ferguson is a self-funded and self-taught racer. For a college student on a shoestring budget, even attempting to compete with a national-level racing series is a lofty goal. But Ferguson did more than just compete this season. He won the 2014 PDRA Top Sportsman World Championship.

Ferguson used a semi final finish at the first race of the series in Rockingham, N.C. and a final round appearance at the second stop on the PDRA’s inaugural tour in Valdosta, Ga. to jump to the TS points lead. Although fellow young gun of the class, Dylan Stott, gave Ferguson a run for his money, Ferguson never relinquished... [Read More]

Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson not holding anything back heading to NHRA Toyota Nationals

(10-29-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – After a slow start to the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship, Allen Johnson knows he is a longshot to claim his second career Pro Stock world championship.

But thanks to a strong turnaround and final round appearance at the circuit’s most recent event in Reading, that glimmer of hope is all Johnson needs to get fired up for the final two events of the 2014 NHRA season.

The first of those comes at this weekend’s 14th annual NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Johnson enters the event in fifth place, 106 points behind Jason Line. It also means Johnson remains alive in the championship hunt in his Team Mopar/Magneti Marelli Dodge Dart, which is all he needs to hear.

“It puts a... [Read More]

Fabietti to race new look Holden Top Doorslammer

(10-29-2014) EASTERN CREEK, NSW – One of the most iconic cars in ANDRA Top Doorslammer will be attracting even more attention with Maurice Fabietti’s Holden Trade Club Monaro sporting new colours for this weekend’s Australian Nations at Sydney Dragway.

The aggressive new styling of the Holden Monaro now represents the most contemporary evolution of the Holden Trade Club branding.

“The Holden Trade Club is about Holden being at the forefront of the parts industry, ensuring customers get the best product, support and price,” explained Fabietti.

“It’s a modern approach to supplying parts and this is a modern and fresh look to the race car. We have had some good media in the lead-up to the event and now we have one thing left to do – make sure it goes as good as it looks!”

With an oversubscribed field,... [Read More]

2014 IHRA Stock champion - Jimmie Hutto

(10-29-2014) NORWALK, OH – Sometimes, all it takes is a little motivation.

For more than a year, Jimmie Hutto's beautiful AA/SA 1967 Camaro sat hidden away in a corner, waiting for just the right moment to be resurrected and returned to the dragstrip. But with each passing race weekend, that time seem to come and go until one day, Hutto found the drive to restore his ride and return to the racetrack. And the motivation? None other than his son, Justin Hutto.

"Justin races in Junior Dragster and he won his local track championship last year and he's been totally focused on going for a bigger championship in 2014," Hutto said. "We decided together that we would fix my car when we could do it right. And that is exactly what we did. It has been a great car all year and my new engine combination made all the difference. Once the car hits, all you have... [Read More]

Gray Motorsports reaching for first championship trophy as Countdown continues in Las Vegas

(10-29-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – With just two races left in NHRA's 2014 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship, the Gray Motorsports Pro Stock team is in full-battle mode as Chevrolet Camaro pilots Shane Gray, Dave Connolly and rookie of the year contender Jonathan Gray suit up to stand out. For Connolly, there are only 51 points separating him from first place, and Shane Gray is mathematically still in the game as he is 99 points out of the lead position.

The Gray Motorsports team closed out the regular season with a win at the venerable U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis and charged into the Countdown, winning the first three races and keeping Shane Gray and Connolly within reach of the largest, most coveted trophy in the series. Pro Stock newcomer Jonathan Gray strengthened his... [Read More]
