» Jeg Coughlin Jr. NHRA Winternationals Friday Update
Jeg Coughlin Jr. off to a fast start with new Dodge Dart GT

(2-12-2016) POMONA, CA – eg Coughlin Jr. kicked off his first season with the Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar/JEGS.com Dodge Dart GT in fine fashion, driving to the provisional No. 4 spot after two rounds of qualifying for the Circle K NHRA Winternationals on Friday at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

Coughlin joined Elite Motorsports for the full 2016 Pro Stock season, and the two-car team of he and two-time champion Erica Enders switched to Dodge. After a whirlwind off-season, Coughlin was pleased with the start to the year.

"I'm pretty fired up, quite frankly," Coughlin said. "We dyno'd our second engine in my car in Phoenix, and that's the one I'm running today. It's really a remarkable effort. We've got to give kudos to the guys at Elite Performance, especially (engine builders) Nick Ferri and Jake Hairston, and to... [Read More]
» Circle K NHRA Winternationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Friday Qualifying Results
Schumacher, Hight and Butner race to qualifying lead Friday at Circle K NHRA Winternationals

(2-12-2016) POMONA, CA – Tony Schumacher raced to the No. 1 qualifying position in Top Fuel Friday at the Circle K NHRA Winternationals at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

Robert Hight (Funny Car) and Bo Butner (Pro Stock) also were qualifying leaders in their respective classes at the season-opening NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.

Eight-time world champion Schumacher was quickest in Top Fuel with a 3.722 second run at 323.66 mph in his U.S. Army dragster.

“The second run was a good run,” said Schumacher, a two-time winner of the tradition-rich Winternationals. “We got the number one spot and earned a few points and I am proud of the guys. It’s a good start. I am excited and my crew chief [Mike Green] is excited. Everything is looking great. I’ve been blessed... [Read More]
» AMSOIL, Dean's Casing Service, Black Diamond Motorsports Team Up For 2016 IHRA Pro Stock Season
AMSOIL, Dean's Casing Service, and Black Diamond Motorsports team up for 2016 IHRA Pro Stock season

(2-11-2016) BRIDGEPORT, WV – AMSOIL, Dean's Casing Service and Black Diamond Motorsports have formed an alliance to win the 2016 International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) Pro Stock Championship. Due to the downtrend in the energy industry and the long lasting relationship between the Goforths and the Bealko family, it was a very easy decision for Dean's Casing Service, AMSOIL, and Black Diamond Motorsports to join forces for the 2016 IHRA Pro Stock Season.

AMSOIL, First in Synthetics, will be continuing its support of Black Diamond Motorsports as it has for the last 2 years. The partnership with AMSOIL provides Synthetic products and support that hold up well in the extreme environment that Mountain Motor Pro Stock engines, transmission and rear gears experience and will continue to expand with this new...

Rested, tested, and ready, Shane Gray begins season with championship aspirations

(2-10-2016) POMONA, CA – This weekend's 56th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals marks the beginning of a new era in Pro Stock. Electronic fuel injection has replaced carburetion, hood scoops are a thing of the past, wheelie bars have been shortened, and rpm is limited. And if popular pro Shane Gray has his way, a new champion will be crowned in the factory hot rod class.

"We have a clear goal this season: We want to win the Mello Yello Pro Stock title," Gray said. "We've got all the pieces in place. I'm surrounded by the best crew in the pits, we have tremendous horsepower, we have wonderful and enthusiastic corporate partners, we've tested a bunch and feel we have a great handle on the new configuration with EFI and everything else, and I feel like I can be steady enough behind the wheel that we can earn a good...

» Erica Enders NHRA Winternationals Preview
Two-time champ Erica Enders hopes good things come in threes

(2-10-2016) POMONA, CA – The more things change, the more they stay the same. At least Erica Enders hopes so.

The Elite Motorsports driver has won the last two NHRA Pro Stock World Championships, with the 2015 title won in dominant fashion. She went to the winner's circle nine times last year, clinching the title at the penultimate race of the season.

But big changes are on tap for 2016, starting with the Circle K NHRA Winternationals this weekend at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona: The class is switching to fuel-injected engines with a 10,500-rpm limit and wheelie bars are shorter. On top of that Enders and her team are switching to Mopar, and she'll be driving a new Dodge Dart along with new teammate Jeg Coughlin Jr.

"I'm excited to get the season started, to get a feel for where everybody's at," Enders... [Read More]

Five-time world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. embracing new-look Pro Stock class approaching Circle K NHRA Winternationals

(2-10-2016) POMONA, CA – It’s a brand new era in the new-look Pro Stock class in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. A class veteran and a five-time world champion, it took Jeg Coughlin Jr. one brief glance at his Magneti Marelli Mopar/JEGS.com Dodge Dart to see an immediate difference.

“It’s a pretty dramatic change to see the hood of a Pro Stock car without that big hood scoop we’ve had for so many years but it sure is a slick-looking design,” Coughlin said. “Then you get a look under the hood and see the intakes and how it all attaches to the top of the motor and you really start understanding that we’re in a brand-new era.

“Personally, I can’t wait to drive this thing. I know all the fellas at Elite Motorsports have been going ’round the clock to figure out... [Read More]

After enormous gains in 2015, Chris McGaha is energized to surpass expectations in 2016

(2-10-2016) POMONA, CA – The 2015 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season for Chris McGaha and his Harlow Sammons Chevrolet Camaro team was a triumph for the one-car team in Pro Stock. Taking the lessons learned from 2015 and testing this week at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park with the new fuel injection, McGaha is looking forward to heading to Pomona for the Circle K NHRA Winternationals.

Since McGaha’s debut in 2011 at the prestigious U.S. Nationals, 2015 was the breakout season McGaha and his team had been working towards. The Odessa, Texas-native powered his Chevrolet Camaro into the final round a total of five times in 2015 and scored three national event wins.

His first national event win of his career came at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway last summer where he took out... [Read More]

Justin Lamb to begin NHRA title defense at famed Winternationals as Lamb Motorsports trio kicks off a new racing season

(2-10-2016) POMONA, CA – When your resume leads with defending series champion, the competition will rise to the occasion anytime you pull into the water box. That’s what Justin Lamb will tackle all season as he looks to add a third NHRA crown to his career racing synopsis.

Lamb and the Lamb Motorsports brigade, consisting of the two-time NHRA champion, sister, Ryen, and Kyle Siepel will begin a new racing expedition this weekend at the season-opening Circle K NHRA Winternationals, Feb. 11-14, at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds.

New technology brings new smiles to Melanie Salemi Motorsports

(2-10-2016) BUFFALO, NY – The Melanie Salemi Motorsports team is happy with recent on track results utilizing Fueltech EFI FT500 engine management system and Atomizer Fuel Injectors. During a test session/race event in Bradenton, Florida we made several runs in the 3.80's with the Melanie Salemi driven G-Force Race Cars built '68 Firebird and worked out what it takes to have an EFI system on a supercharged Pro Mod. The FT500 is a complete management system controlling all of the tuning functions of the engine as well as shifting the car. "We made a total of 12 runs and it worked flawlessly on all of them. We couldn't be more happy with these results," stated Jon Salemi.

Camaro SS Pro Stock - A new era begins

(2-10-2016) DETROIT, MI – Not many things surprise National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Pro Stock veteran Greg Anderson. But something definitely was amiss last month when the Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro SS rolled to the stage beams for the first time during testing in Bradenton, Florida.

“I said to myself, ‘Did they move the ‘Christmas Tree’ back 20 feet at the track? Is somebody playing a joke on me?’ Then it hit me that I wasn’t looking around the hood scoop.’’

Removal of the iconic hood scoop on the Pro Stock is among multiple rule changes instituted by NHRA officials for the 2016 NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series season, which begins this weekend with the Circle K NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California.

Other key changes to the rules package include electronically-controlled throttle... [Read More]

O'Rourke wins Westernationals

(2-9-2016) JOYNER, QLD – Ex-pat West Australian Grant O’Rourke tasted victory in his home-land of Perth on the weekend, taking out the Pro Slammer victory at the 45th Westernationals.

The now Brisbane resident had to beat champion leader John Zappia in the final round of what was a tough weekend of racing, which also included the semi-final and final of the rained-out Nitro Slam from December during qualifying for the weekend’s event.

“It really does feel great to take out the Pro Slammer victory in our home town of Perth, and at none other than the 35th Westernationals,” said O’Rourke.

“This is a special victory, and one that comes after a hard-fought weekend for the entire O’Rourke Motorsport team. It is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our entire crew, and I can’t thank them enough for all of their efforts.”

(2-9-2016) POMONA, CA – With six world championships and 76 national event titles on his résumé, Jeg Coughlin Jr. returns to full-time competition this weekend at the 56th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals as a bona fide challenger for the Pro Stock trophy at the season-opening race.

While it's true Coughlin only raced three Pro Stock events in 2015 -- highlighted by a runner-up finish in Seattle -- he remained active in the sport, scoring his first national event "double" with wins in Super Gas and Stock at the JEGS NHRA Northern SPORTSnationals in Columbus, Ohio.

This year, Coughlin will race a brand-new Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar/JEGS.com Dart GT out of the powerful Elite Motorsports camp as a factory Dodge teammate to reigning two-time world champion Erica Enders. They will be joined in the Elite pit by... [Read More]
