PSCA kicks off summertime racing with MagnaFuel Shootout at the Strip

(5-26-2016) LAS VEGAS, NV – The Premier Street Car Association is warding away any summertime blues for drag racing fans with back-to-back national-level events. The MagnaFuel Shootout at the Strip Presented by Mickey Thompson Tires kicks off PSCA’s trek of the West at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 3-4, with the Rocky Mountain Summer Series returning to the legendary Bandimere Speedway the following weekend for its fifth-straight year of drag racing excitement.

Women in the IHRA - Meg Grzeskiewicz

(5-25-2016) NORWALK, OH – You don’t often hear of a pageant contestant referencing her drag racing career during the talent portion of a competition but for Meg Grzeskiewicz, that is just one of her hobbies. The 24-year-old New Yorker was the 2014 Lancaster track champion in the street class and is also starting her own grass fed beef business.

It Only Took One Win Light

Growing up in rural New York, it’s not unusual that Grzeskiewicz became involved in motorsports or farming. “An ex-boyfriend got me into racing. I started thinking it would be kind of fun to race my truck in Street just to see how I did. My very first IHRA Street race I entered at Lancaster National Dragway, I won. All it took was seeing that win light one time and that was history. That was back in 2010.”

While Lancaster is where Grzeskiewicz got her... [Read More]

Teleconference with NHRA Pro Stock points leader Jason Line

(5-25-2016) GLENDORA, CA – The following excerpt is from a teleconference featuring NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series guest Jason Line.

THE MODERATOR: Jason, we've talked to you and Greg a lot this year about the success. After every weekend, do you still kind of look back not in wonderment but think, Man, I can't believe this just happened again?

JASON LINE: Well, to be honest, I hadn't given it a whole lot of thought. After the last two races, I started to think about it a little bit more. Obviously it's an incredible run for our team and for me personally. I've never had a start like this, obviously, which I guess not many folks have. It's one of those things where I'm starting to think about it a little bit. But the truth is, you know, at this point it doesn't matter. It's what's coming up next.... [Read More]

(5-25-2016) STOWE, OH – Mickey Thompson-sponsored Pro Mod racer and long-time Team M/T member, Bill Glidden (2015 NHRA Summernationals Pro Mod champion), is set to compete in the upcoming NHRA Summernationals driving the Precision Turbo & Engine (PTE) 2014 Pro Mod Chevrolet Camaro.

"This relationship brings the best of the best together to create an NHRA Pro Mod dream team," said Tom Kundrik, Motorsports Manager for Mickey Thompson. "Billy has been racing with our tires for many years. With this incredible car and additional support from PTE, the sky is the limit."

Owned by Harry Hruska of PTE, the Camaro was previously named the Best Engineered Car in Pro Mod, and is now backed by Mickey Thompson, driven by Bill Glidden, and racing with Mickey Thompson's legendary ET Drag... [Read More]

» Shirley Muldowney Diagnosed With Lung Cancer, Will Undergo Surgery Wednesday In Charlotte
Shirley Muldowney diagnosed with lung cancer, will undergo surgery Wednesday in Charlotte

(5-24-2016) CHARLOTTE, NC – Drag racing legend Shirley Muldowney has been diagnosed with lung cancer and will undergo surgery at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in downtown Charlotte early Wednesday morning to remove her right lung, where a Stage II tumor has grown. Renowned thoracic and cardiac surgeon Dr. Harold Howe will lead the team performing the five-hour-long procedure.

"I urge everyone to keep up with their health and get chest X-rays as often as possible to make sure they are OK," the 75-year-old Muldowney said. "I'm a fighter, always have been, and I'm going to fight this as best I can with everything I got. Dr. Howe is the No. 1 guy in the business, and he's as ready as I am to get this thing out of me.

"I'm ready for the pain to stop. It's been getting worse the last... [Read More]
» Jimmy Ålund FIA European Championship The Main Event Preview
9-time FIA Pro Stock champion Jimmy Ålund ready for new season

(5-24-2016) NORRKÖPING, SE – This upcoming weekend signals the beginning of Jimmy Ålund's 14th year of racing in the FIA Pro Stock Drag Racing Championship Series.

The European Championship season starts with the FIA Main Event held at historic Santa Pod Raceway in the United Kingdom. Santa Pod Raceway was also the scene of the final race of the 2015 season. A race where Ålund dominated by qualifying in the number one spot and winning the event.

Mid-season 2015 was more troublesome and Ålund finished the championship in second place. Less than one round win separated the top two teams after a whole season of racing. "Pro Stock leaves no room for margins, we reset the European ET- and speedrecords twice but that did not help. 2015 was a real tough season for the racers but an excellent show for the fans," says Ålund, "And I...

Russ Pavey’s aggressive setup

(5-23-2016) MELBOURNE, VIC – It’s been a while between “hits of the throttle” for Russell Pavey and his RPMotorsports Pro-Slammer Corvette. “Russ” and wife Caroline took some time away from the sport recently to regroup & reorganise, and to build a solid infrastructure on which to launch their comeback to drag racing.

They now feel they’re in a great place to return to competition at this year’s 400 Thunder City of Ipswich Winternationals at Willowbank next month.

With less than 3 weeks to go before the big event, we caught up with Russ to get a little further insight into the RPMotorsports team.

His career in racing all started like it does for many drag racers. He was hooked the first time he went to a drag race. “It all started as a young bloke hanging over the fence at Surfer Paradise International Raceway, watching the Ampol New... [Read More]

The Main Event kicks off a thrilling 2016 FIA European Championship season

(5-23-2016) WELLINGBOROUGH, NORTHANTS, UK – Less than a week to go and the 2016 FIA European Drag Racing Championship kicks off with The Main Event at Santa Pod Raceway. All drivers will have to start from zero again and will do their very best to get their names on top of the championship standings after race one. In Top Fuel, reigning champion Micke Kågered will face some strong competition, but the same can be said about champions Thomas Lindström and Michael Gullqvist in Pro Stock and Pro Modified. Santa Pod’s 50th Anniversary will be celebrated in style with a fantastic opening of the 2016 FIA European Championship.

Last year’s FIA European Top Fuel Championship was decided in the last race of the season in favor of Micke Kågered. The Swede won his second consecutive championship by defeating a very strong Anita Mäkelä.... [Read More]
» Chevrolet Wins Eighth Pro Stock Race In A Row
Chevrolet wins 8th NHRA Pro Stock race in a row

(5-22-2016) TOPEKA, KS – The 13th time was a charm for Jason Line. Line, who had not reached the final round or qualified No. 1 at the National Hot Rod Association Kansas Nationals in his 12 previous starts, defeated KB Racing teammate Greg Anderson to win the Pro Stock class at Heartland Park Topeka.

Line, the No. 1 qualifier in the Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro SS, recorded his fifth victory in eight Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events this season. He has reached the final round in every race.

“Nobody really knows what a big deal this is to me. I’ve waited 13 years, but finally got it right. It was an exciting day for our whole team,” said Line, the Pro Stock points leader who earned his 42nd career win.

Anderson, who has won the other three races and twice been the runner-up, had a slight starting line... [Read More]
» NHRA Kansas Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Final Results
Kalitta, Hagan and Line race to victories at NHRA Kansas Nationals

(5-22-2016) TOPEKA, KS – Doug Kalitta raced to his third consecutive Top Fuel victory of the season Sunday and had to navigate Heartland Park Topeka’s dragstrip in an ill-handling racecar to turn on the win light in the final round at the NHRA Kansas Nationals.

Matt Hagan (Funny Car) and Jason Line (Pro Stock) joined Kalitta in the winner’s circle at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.

Kalitta’s Mac Tools dragster lost traction at the hit of the throttle and got sideways two times as he worked the steering wheel to cross the finish line in front of fellow finalist and rival Antron Brown.

“It’s one of those deals you take what you can get as quick as you can do it,” said Kalitta, who extended his series points lead to 95 over second-place Brown with the victory. “I don’t think my car... [Read More]

Gray excited about future after semifinal finish in Topeka

(5-22-2016) TOPEKA, KS – Valvoline/Nova Services Pro Stock driver Shane Gray was all smiles after the NHRA Kansas Nationals on Sunday at Heartland Park Topeka.

The four-time Pro Stock winner wasn't happy he lost in the semifinals, of course, but he was more than pleased with the performance of his Gray Motorsports team -- led by co-crew chiefs Jim Yates and Dave Connolly -- in Topeka.

"The car is running great," Gray said. "I'm so happy with all the guys, happy with the Gas Monkey team, happy with everything we've got going on. The car is good, our customers are happy, so life is good."

Gray's performance also helped him inch closer to ending the domination of KB Racing this season, which won on Sunday for the eighth time in eight races in 2016. Gray's Camaro was within six-thousandths of a second of the... [Read More]

Third consecutive semifinal appearance leaves Johnson wanting more

(5-22-2016) TOPEKA, KS – Allen Johnson made it to the semifinals for the third consecutive race this weekend at the 28th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals in his Marathon Petroleum/J&J Racing Dodge Dart. After qualifying in the No. 7 spot, Allen Johnson took out Aaron Strong and Bo Butner on his way to the semifinals.

In the first round, Johnson had a first round matchup against Aaron Strong. Johnson cruised right down the boulevard and clocked in with a 6.655-seconds at 208.20 mph; Johnson took the win over Strong’s 6.692, 205.19.

With lane choice over Bo Butner in the second round, Allen had a .013-second reaction time at the starting line and with that huge advantage on the tree and his consistent horsepower, Johnson took the win with a 6.676, 207.02 over Butner’s 6.716, 199.37.

Hullinger honored as Cavalcade of Stars Grand Marshal

(5-22-2016) NORWALK, OH – NHRA North Central Division 3 director Jay Hullinger was named grand marshal during pre-race ceremonies at the 10th Annual Cavalcade of Stars presented by Budweiser at Summit Motorsports Park on May 22, 2016.

During an impassioned speech delivered on the starting line just before drivers fired their engines for first round of eliminations, Summit Motorsports Park president Bill Bader, Jr. spoke of his longtime friendship with Hullinger, and how he has had a profound impact on members of the racing community on personal and professional levels.

He went on to talk about how Hullinger was introduced to the sport as a child, as his family operated Bunker Hill Drag Strip in Bunker Hill, Indiana, and how he literally - not figuratively - spent his mornings, afternoons and evenings there as he and his family... [Read More]
