400 Thunder Pro Stock champion: Lee Bektash

(7-26-2016) MELBOURNE, VIC – “It’s the adrenaline. The thrill and the rush. The competition. I’m addicted to the speed!” lists 400 Thunder Champion Lee Bektash as we ask what keeps him engaged with Drag Racing, and Pro Stock. Rising up through the Sportsman ranks, Bektash has been racing Pro Stock for nine seasons now, though admits he and Drag Racing have had an affair stretching back some twenty five years.

“Coming out on top shows that we had the best car on the track,” begins Bektash confidently; “however we know we can improve on it. For starters, we were racing on our spare motor for the whole season which is around 70 horsepower down on our more developed drivetrain. We didn’t do everything perfectly, no one in the field did,” he admits, alluding to exciting racing ahead for fans tuning in to the 2016/2017 season.

“We made the finals... [Read More]

Zappia takes lead in ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship

(7-26-2016) BIBRA LAKE, WA – The second leg of the “Northern Swing” was held last weekend at the Alice Springs Desert Nationals held by the Central Australian Drag Racing Association, where Round 2 of the ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship was run over the eighth mile.

» Erica Enders NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Enders on a season-long high as Sonoma race approaches

(7-25-2016) NEW ORLEANS, LA – Fresh off her most encouraging outing of the year, back-to-back and reigning Pro Stock champion Erica Enders is anxious to get to Northern California for this weekend's Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.

Enders qualified a season-best second on the Denver elimination ladder and logged an elimination round-win before parts failure cost her just enough time to lose her second-round race against Allen Johnson. Nevertheless, the huge uptick in performance has the entire Elite/Mopar Dodge Dart race team feeling better about themselves.

"I think with the gains we made in Denver we can definitely carry those to Sonoma and continue to work on making the car better, making better runs, and me driving awesome," Enders said. "That definitely is the goal in Sonoma: To pick up where we left off in... [Read More]

Coughlin says Pro Stock could hit season records in Sonoma

(7-25-2016) DELAWARE, OH – If weather conditions are agreeable when the NHRA tour arrives at Sonoma Raceway this weekend for the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals, five-time Pro Stock world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. says the record book could have a couple of new entries.

"It really comes down to what Mother Nature deals the Pro Stock cars," Coughlin said. "We typically get very high pressure there barometer-wise. On those cool days, the track is tight and the air is crisp and clean. If we get that this time it's likely we see the modern-day national record fall for Pro Stock, with the new 10,500 rpm and fuel-injection rules coming into play. I'm looking forward to this happening, and maybe we can give it a poke."

Prior to the 2016 season, NHRA mandated several rule changes for Pro Stock, including the switch from carburetion to... [Read More]

Force, Schumacher, Johnson and Hines earn historic victories at Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals in Denver

(7-24-2016) MORRISON, CO – The two winningest drivers in their respective classes in NHRA history, John Force and Tony Schumacher, scored historic victories Sunday at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway near Denver.

Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) and Andrew Hines (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also were winners at the first NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series finals in history to be televised live on a national broadcast network.

It was the first win of the season for both legendary drivers, who have earned the most world championships and victories in Funny Car and Top Fuel, respectively. They gave epic performances to the national television audience watching the finals live on FOX.

» Shane Gray Mile-High NHRA Nationals Race Report
Gray falls in Denver first round

(7-24-2016) MORRISON, CO – In the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, everything has to work perfectly in order to win a race or even a round.

Valvoline/Nova Services pro Shane Gray found that out the hard way in the first round of the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Bandimere Speedway.

His Gray Motorsports Chevrolet made a solid pass in the first round against Chris McGaha, 6.992 seconds at 198.12 mph. That was the fourth-quickest run of the round, so clearly the car, crew, and engine performed well. But Gray had a misstep behind the wheel and ended up losing on a holeshot.

"The driver just didn't get the job done today," Gray said. "No excuses. Chris just did a better job today, and congrats to him. We'll try again next week."

McGaha pulled a strong .008-second reaction time, getting an immediate... [Read More]
» Jeg Coughlin Jr. Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals Race Report
Untimely exit for Coughlin at Mopar Mile-High Nationals

(7-24-2016) MORRISON, CO – What happens on Friday and Saturday definitely affects what happens on Sunday in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, and it may have contributed to an early ouster for five-time Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Bandimere Speedway.

Coughlin qualified No. 8 for the 16-car field, but he could have been much higher with his Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar/JEGS.com Dodge Dart. The best weather conditions came Friday and Saturday night after rain delays pushed qualifying later into the evening, but Coughlin and his team couldn't take advantage and get a quicker elapsed time and higher qualifying spot, so on Sunday he had to face a tough opponent in No. 9 qualifier Vincent Nobile, and it cost him.

"That was definitely not the result we were looking... [Read More]
» Erica Enders Mile-High NHRA Nationals Race Report
Enders holds head high after performance gains in Denver

(7-24-2016) MORRISON, CO – No one in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series hates losing more than two-time Pro Stock champion Erica Enders, but she can smile after the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Bandimere Speedway knowing her Elite Motorsports/Mopar Dodge team made strides toward the top of the Pro Stock charts.

Enders lost in the second round after an unfortunate parts failure slowed her pass, but she knows her Dodge Dart is now a contender.

"We're certainly pleased with our performance gains this weekend," Enders said. "It shows that our hard work is paying off. Having said that, we still have a long way to go."

Enders qualified No. 2 in Denver, the best qualifying effort of the year for her and her team, which switched to Mopar for the 2016 season.

She beat Alan Prusiensky with... [Read More]

The King of the Mountain Allen Johnson earns seventh Mopar Mile-High trophy on national television

(7-24-2016) MORRISON, CO – When it seems all the cards are stacked against you, that is when some of the most incredible outcomes come to fruition. Coming from the bottom half of the field in the No. 10 spot, Johnson and his Marathon Petroleum/J&J Racing team pulled together and became the first non-KB Racing team to take home the Wally in the 2016 season. This win marks his 10th straight final and seventh win at this race located at Bandimere Speedway.

In the first round, Johnson had a matchup against Drew Skillman. Johnson and Skillman were identical on the tree with .032-second reaction times and Johnson was able to outpower Skillman to take the win. Johnson clocked in with a 7.000-second pass at 196.59 to Skillman’s 7.047, 197.74.

Second round, Johnson raced fellow Mopar... [Read More]
