Former champ preps new car for ultra-fast Pro Mod class

(10-22-2014) FONTANA, CA – It's been a year since we last saw Garrett Turbo Pro Mod racer Mike Bowman. As reported earlier in the season, Bowman had ordered a new Jerry Bickel Chevelle during the off-season in hopes of getting to the track before the end of this year. That became a reality as Bowman took delivery of the car from the paint shop two weeks ago and is now trying to get the car ready for its debut at this weekend's 3rd Annual Unlimited Products NMCA WEST World Finals at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana.

"It's been a thrash since I got the car," Bowman said. Other than new twin 88 turbos, the Brad Anderson 522 cubic-inch HEMI and Rossler transmission in the car came from his former ride. Bowman says it's been somewhat of a struggle getting everything working in sync. "We've run into a couple of issues but you always do with a new car.... [Read More]

2014 IHRA Mod Champion - Mark Pressey

(10-22-2014) NORWALK, OH – It is amazing how one seemingly insignificant decision can have such a profound impact on a person's life. Or, in the case of IHRA Mod ET World Champion Mark Pressey, an entire racing season.

For Pressey, the 2014 racing season simply wasn't supposed to happen. Pressey finished last season with a broken car and, following a trying winter, the veteran racer out of Newport, Michigan had no intention of getting his car ready for the season. But one man changed all of that, encouraging Pressey to fix the car and get it ready for racing.

Just a few months later, that motivation led to Pressey earning the IHRA Mod ET World Championship at the Summit Racing Equipment World Finals at Memphis International Raceway.

"We ended last year with the car smoking and not running well at all. To be honest with you, I didn't... [Read More]

(10-22-2014) REYNOLDS, GA – After recent double wins in both Top Dragster and Top Sportsman at a NOPI Nationals event, the Spradlin Motorsports team was back in familiar territory at the last NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Southeast Division event of the season at Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA. The Southeastern Hose backed team carried high momentum into the event and reached the final round in Top Dragster.

Spradlin entered eliminations qualified 4th in Top Dragster with a 6.51 at 212 MPH and 14th in Top... [Read More]

Records fall in tightly contested drag racing season-opener at BIC

(10-22-2014) SAKHIR, BH – Two new class records and a pair of hotly contested finals decided by a mere two-hundredths-of-a-second were among the many highlights during an electrifying opening round in the 2014/2015 Bahrain National Drag Racing Championship.

A total of 105 participants from Bahrain and across the GCC flocked to Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) in Sakhir on Friday night to battle for victories in the region’s most competitive racing series.

» Dwayne Wolfe Claims 2014 NEOPMA Championship
After a battle down to the wire, Dwayne Wolfe emerges as 2014 NEOPMA champion

(10-21-2014) HUNTINGTON, NY – It’s been a long journey filled season, but one team persevered and emerged a champion after battling the tough competition that race the quarter mile Pro Mod series, and it came down to the final points event of 2014 to determine the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Champion.

» Maurice Fabietti ANDRA Australian Nationals Preview
Fabietti focused on Australian Nationals win

(10-21-2014) SYDNEY, NSW – In the face of John Zappia’s continued dominance of the Top Doorslammer bracket, Holden Trade Club Monaro driver, Maurice Fabietti will be looking to take on Zappia and take home ANDRA gold at the Sydney Dragway’s Australian Nationals.

“Zap (John Zappia) has just been so strong but we saw in Adelaide that he can be beaten.”

Queenslander Grant O’Rourke defeated Zappia in the final at the Springnationals event.

Fabietti continued, “Obviously, Zap has this year’s Championship all sewn up but we want this Australian Nationals title.”

Luke Bogacki: 2014 NHRA Super Gas National Champion

(10-21-2014) CARTERVILLE, IL – 33-year-old Luke Bogacki has clinched his second NHRA national championship in as many years, following his 2013 Super Comp title with the Super Gas crown this season. Although his 2014 title just became official last weekend, Bogacki had seemingly put it out of reach months ago. He started his Super Gas season with four final round appearances in his first five events, and continued to tack on more points throughout the summer. Although he was challenged by several worthy adversaries, including Trevor Larson and Troy Coughlin (both of whom posted a higher points total than 2013 champion Rick Beckstrom), Bogacki was able to fend off all challengers. His massive 731 point score marks the highest points total in the 33-year history of the Super Gas category, eclipsing John Vineyard’s mark of 729 that had stood for 18 years.

Biondo closing in on 7th NHRA National Championship

(10-21-2014) MASPETH, NY – After a blistering start to his 2014 season that included a combined 4 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series wins in Stock and Super Stock and a rare double victory at the SummitRacing.Com NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas, 6-time NHRA Champion Peter Biondo took some time away from the NHRA tour. He spent most of the summer months at home alongside his wife Emily, as the coupled anticipated the arrival of their first son, Saverio Michael Biondo who was born on August 15.

“All of my friends ask where the name Saverio came from,” Peter explained. “It originated in Italy and has been passed down through my family starting at my great grandfather, all the way down to my father and my brother. They shortened my brother’s name from Saverio to Sal somewhere along the way. Emily and I thought it would be meaningful to continue this... [Read More]

Pro Modified Racing Association Countdown to the 2014 Championship: Kalso Motorsports – Fourth Place

(10-20-2014) CAYUGA, ON – Driving the Kalso Motorsports 1971 Barracuda Pro Modified in 2014, Jason Kalso recorded his best season finish to date in Pro Modified Racing Association competition, taking fourth in the championship points race.
