» NHRA Toyota Nationals Pro Mod Drag Racing Series Friday Qualifying Results
Walsh takes qualifying lead during NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series qualifying Friday at Las Vegas

(10-31-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – Don Walsh raced to the qualifying lead in the NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the NHRA Toyota Nationals Friday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Pro Mod racing at this event is presented by Aeromotive, Inc.

Walsh’s Precision Turbo ’13 Camaro powered to a top performance of 5.915 seconds at 252.19 mph. Walsh is looking for his second No. 1 qualifier of the season and first win of the season.

“It was a good run,” said Walsh, who is in his third race with a new car. “We did a lot with the car with it being relatively new. We’re just trying to make it better and better each run. Hopefully we have a consistent race car on Sunday.”

Crampton, J. Force, Enders-Stevens and Savoie top leaderboard after Friday qualifying at Las Vegas

(10-31-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – In the thick of the battle to earn another NHRA Funny Car world championship, John Force raced to the qualifying lead Friday at the NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Force powered his Castrol GTX High Mileage Ford Mustang to a 4.039 second pass at 318.54 mph to top the field, completing the pass alongside championship rival Matt Hagan, who entered this event with a 36-point lead over the 16-time champ. Jack Beckman, whose car is now tuned by former Force crew chief Jimmy Prock, was the top qualifier until Force’s run knocked him off.

“We got down there so we feel good about the run,” said Force, whose 10,000-horsepower machine is now tuned by John Medlen. “You’ve got to get every point you can. Hagan picked up points too. When... [Read More]

2014 IHRA Top Sportsman champion - Mike Koontz

(10-31-2014) NORWALK, OH – Don't be late. Those three words were the only words being muttered by Top Sportsman racer Mike Koontz as he pulled into the staging lanes for the finals of the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions presented by AMSOIL.

Last year, Koontz lost in the finals of the IHRA's championship tournament with a sleepy .092 reaction time in a loss to Graham Foster. This year, Koontz was determined not to let that happen again.

"What can I say? I messed it up last year by being late on the tree. I knew I wasn't going to let that happen again," Koontz said. "I just kept telling myself 'don't be late, don't be late.' I knew if I could hit the tree, I was in the race."

Fortunately for Koontz, he accomplished his goal with a championship-worthy .013 light in the Top Sportsman final of the 2014 edition... [Read More]

Enders-Ste​vens named to Board of Directors for Serving Orphans Worldwide

(10-31-2014) BRISTOL, TN – Furthering a successful partnership that began at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, Serving Orphans Worldwide (SOW) has invited Pro Stock driver Erica Enders-Stevens to fill a seat on its Board of Directors.

"After being introduced to Richard Baker and Serving Orphans Worldwide earlier this year in Indianapolis and learning the significant impact they have on kids around the world, I was honored when they asked me to serve on the Board of Directors," Enders-Stevens said. "This charity has really touched me and Richie (Stevens, husband and fellow driver). We've been able to learn so much from them and how they help kids.

"It's very humbling to be chosen to represent such a great endeavor as SOW. They already do so much and I only hope this opportunity brings more... [Read More]

Pro Stock's Jonathan Gray heavy in the hunt for Rookie of the Year title

(10-31-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – When Jonathan Gray made his Pro Stock debut at the NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville earlier this year, having a shot at NHRA's acclaimed Rookie of the Year title – formally the Auto Club Road to the Future Award – wasn't on his radar. To be honest, Gray wasn't even sure Pro Stock would be the right fit. Right away, however, the youngest son of veteran drag racer Johnny Gray and brother to fifth-year Pro Stock competitor Shane Gray settled in and found his groove. Now, with just two races left in 2014, the second-generation heavy hitter is nearing completion of a season marked by head-turning accomplishments.

"I think it probably helped that I drove dirt cars before this," said Gray, who raced late model dirt track prior to joining the Gray Motorsports Pro Stock team. "You didn't steer those... [Read More]

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]
