» Danny Rowe Racing NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Rowe & Matusek feeling the momentum heading into NHRA SpringNationals

(4-23-2014) LAGUNA HILLS, CA – For Danny Rowe and Steve Matusek, drivers of the popular Agave Underground Tequila Pro Mod Camaros, it seems like forever since the last time they took to the quarter-mile, but that’s not the only reason they’re so excited about this weekend’s O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals at Houston’s Royal Purple Raceway.

Rowe and Matusek’s combined enthusiasm stems from the team’s track record at Royal Purple Raceway – namely Rowe’s two victories and three final round appearances over the course of the last four seasons.

“We are motivated,” says Rowe, emphatically. “It’s been a little while since Gainesville, so we’re thrilled just to be going racing, but we are motivated headed into Houston – it’s a race where we’ve had a lot of success over the years. Based on how we started the... [Read More]

ProtectThe​Harvest.co​m driver Brogdon gives back to hometown fans

(4-23-2014) TOMBALL, TX – ProtectTheHarvest.com Pro Stock driver Rodger Brogdon will arrive at his hometown track this weekend with a few extra special guests. In fact, one lucky winner and her guests scored the trip of a lifetime to the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals thanks to the Tomball, Texas, native.

Numerous fans entered for a chance to win a VIP experience as an honorary crew person on Brogdon's race car through his Facebook page and/or by calling into The Rod Ryan Show, on the No. 1 local radio station in Houston, throughout last week.

"The contest was my way of giving back to my community," Brogdon said. "It's all about giving back to those who support you. It's an honor and a blessing to be able to do something I love and call it a job. I love being a professional drag racer, and I... [Read More]
» Larry Morgan NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Lucas Oil racer Morgan looking for brighter weekend in Houston

(4-23-2014) NEWARK, OH – Shaking off a difficult race in Charlotte, Lucas Oil Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan is optimistic things will turn around at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals this weekend.

Morgan was forced to use three engines in Charlotte, and problems forced him to miss two qualifying sessions, a rarity for the veteran campaigner, but Morgan and his team spent the time between Charlotte and Houston repairing engines and adjusting their Ford Mustang's tune-up.

"We've got it all back together and we're good, so we're headed to Texas," Morgan said. "We're back to normal, and we'll have one car in my pit, so we're good to go."

One of the areas of concern for Morgan was broken valve springs, but the root cause of the breakage bothers Morgan, too.

"We have been tearing... [Read More]
» Greg Anderson NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Anderson back in the seat of Summit Racing hot rod in Houston

(4-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Four-time NHRA Pro Stock world champion Greg Anderson has been as patient as possible, and this weekend he will finally be back where he belongs: behind the wheel of the Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro for the 27th annual O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals at Houston's Royal Purple Raceway.

For Anderson, missing the first five events of the 2014 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series was a necessary evil as he recovered from heart surgery to repair a bicuspid aortic valve. A man whose belly burns with such a fierce competitive fire could not easily swallow the bitter pill of watching from the sidelines, and although the original prescribed time off was to be six races, Anderson worked hard to return to form and will return one race earlier than expected.

A panel of doctors officially cleared his... [Read More]
» Chris McGaha NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Texas-bred McGaha plans triple threat at NHRA SpringNati​onals in Houston

(4-23-2014) ODESSA, TX – Texas born-and-raised Chris McGaha isn't a big fan of kicking back and putting his feet up. This weekend, at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals at Houston's Royal Purple Raceway, that will be particularly true, as the second-generation drag racer will have cars competing for trophies in three categories.

McGaha will continue to run the decidedly quick Harlow Sammons Racing Chevrolet Camaro in the Pro Stock category while George McMillan, who drove for McGaha last fall in Dallas, will again be behind the wheel of the Harlow Sammons Stock COPO Camaro. Don Alexander will drive a unique D/D (dragster) in Comp Eliminator.

"I think this weekend is going to be a lot of fun," said McGaha, a two-time low qualifier in 2014, just five events into the Mello Yello Drag... [Read More]

Travis Harvey looking for #1 in 2014

(4-23-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – Maybe it had something to do with a certain Texas Longhorn hat. Or maybe it was fueled by coming in second too many times. One thing is certain, Travis Harvey had what it took to claim the first ever PDRA Top Dragster victory at the Inaugural Spring Open at Rockingham Dragway, April 4-6 . Being behind the wheel is second nature to Harvey and he’s no stranger to the winner’s circle, but being crowned champion for such a historical event is something the humble North Carolinian simply says was “pretty awesome.”

“The guys [on his crew] have been teasing me about my hat,” told Harvey after the event. “I got this Texas Longhorn hat this year, even though I’m not much of a Longhorn fan. I liked the ‘T’ on the back for Travis. Every race I’ve worn this hat this year, I’ve won.”

Although the “Carolina Kid” is admittedly not a... [Read More]
» Shane Gray NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Shane Gray plans to pick up right where he left off in KYMCO Camaro

(4-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – A week and a half ago, Gray Motorsports Pro Stock driver Shane Gray wheeled the swift KYMCO Chevrolet Camaro to his best qualifying performance so far in 2014 and left the grounds as runner-up of the challenging Four-Wide Nationals. This weekend, at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals at Houston's Royal Purple Raceway, the Mooresville, N.C.-based driver plans to stoke the fires.

Gray, now competing in his fifth season in the professional factory hot rod category, is enthusiastic as the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series returns to Houston; last season at Royal Purple Raceway he and final-round opponent Jason Line clocked identical 6.589 elapsed times, both at over 211 mph – but Line's quicker reaction time was the decider.

"That was a tough loss, but I like that we get another... [Read More]

Yvonne Lucas Racing special guest at Boy Scout Pinewood Derby

(4-23-2014) MAPLE VALLEY, WA – Boy Scout Troop #767 held their annual Pinewood Derby in Maple Valley, WA on April 22nd. A fun night was had by all as these young Scouts raced their pinewood derby cars in fierce and spirited competition!

“It was an honor for me to be asked to participate in this event and spend some time talking with the boys about the sport of drag racing,” reported Lucas. “We discussed many of the safety items involved in racing including my fire suit, Hans device and helmet.”

A long history of involvement in the Scouting program, Yvonne’s father showed by example what an outstanding influence the program is in a young boy’s life. “Having watched my dad work many years with the Scouts, it was a great opportunity for me to add to that legacy in my own community. Like any racer, I love to talk about our... [Read More]

Jonathan Gray to race in Houston with revitalized program

(4-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Pro Stock driver Jonathan Gray is still new to the world of competing in NHRA's premier factory hot rod category, but with two races under his belt, he is quickly finding his comfort zone. This weekend at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, the second-generation driver is ready to continue his freshman venture in the class with a bright and brand new paint scheme for his Gray Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro.

"It was a neat car being matte black, but I just felt like it was time for a change and decided to put a little color in it," said Gray, who is keeping the car under wraps until the event. "The folks at Fine Line came up with a design, and I think it's going to look really nice on the racetrack."

In addition to a brand new look for the Gray... [Read More]

Pro Stock’s Enders-Ste​vens hopes hot start leads to first win at O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Springnati​onals at Royal Purple Raceway

(4-23-2014) BAYTOWN, TX – There is a new car and a new team but the one thing that didn’t change for Erica Enders-Stevens heading into the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season was the belief in herself.

That mental fortitude coupled with the strong performance of her Elite Motorsports Pro Stock team has formed a lethal duo and led to a blazing start to the season. Enders-Stevens has posted one win, two final round appearances, a victory in the K&N Horsepower Challenge and takes the points lead into her home event, this weekend’s 27th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals presented by Super Start Batteries at Royal Purple Raceway.

All in all, Enders-Stevens could not have asked for a better start to a season that... [Read More]
» Gary Phillips ANDRA Santo's Super 3 Extreme Drag Race Final Race Report
Gary Phillips' Lucas Oil TA/FC has dream weekend

(4-23-2014) HILLCREST, QLD – At last weekend's Santo's Super 3 Extreme Drag Race, Gary Phillips swept the board by claiming wins on both nights and setting a new elapsed time record in his Lucas Oil Products Top Alcohol Funny Car.

On night one of the event, after struggling during the lone qualifying session, Gary came back to defeat John Cannuli with a 5.60 shutting off early to run only 245mph. The Lucas Oils team then faced Debbie O'Rourke in the final, which saw a super consistent 5.61 come up on the scoreboards, along with the much sought after win light.

"After day one, we felt the combination was extremely close to being right. The track was fantastic, the air was ok, and the car was close. We knew that only small tweaks had to be made, because the ET's were still quick despite pedalling the car and shutting off early on both... [Read More]
» Dave Connolly NHRA SpringNationals Preview
Dave Connolly ready to bounce back in Charter Communicat​ions Camaro in Houston

(4-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – A visit to Royal Purple Raceway this weekend could be just what the doctor ordered for Charter Communications Chevrolet Camaro driver Dave Connolly. One of three Pro Stock drivers in the Gray Motorsports stable, the Mooresville, N.C.-based competitor was halted frustratingly early at the Charlotte race a week and a half ago, but if this weekend follows past history, Connolly should emerge with a much brighter outcome at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals in Houston.

In 2012, Connolly was a crew chief for Erica Enders-Stevens, but his history as an exceptional driver was taken into account when an opportunity was presented, and the now 23-time victor was able to both tune and drive a Pro Stock car at select events.

The first race of seven for Connolly in... [Read More]
» This Week On WFO Radio
Greg Anderson, Larry Dixon, Scotty Richardson, Spring Fling winners, and Alan Reinhart on WFO Radio

(4-23-2014) HOLLYWOOD, FL – Greg Anderson, Larry Dixon, Scotty Richardson, and the Vegas Spring Fling winners all join host Joe Castello, along with the NHRA's Alan Reinhart, on WFO Radio Nitro. To listen now, go to www.wforadio.com or click "latest show" button.

4-Time Pro Stock Champion, Greg Anderson, stops by WFO to discuss his return to the cockpit of his Summit Racing Camaro.

3-Time Top Fuel Champion, Larry Dixon, makes his return to NHRA competition behind the wheel of Bob Vandergriff's second car. Dixon, discusses his excitement to race again,... [Read More]
» Allen Puglia Wins Sixth Perth Motorplex Super Comp Track Championship
Puglia dedicates win to sponsors

(4-22-2014) WANNEROO, WA – The Big Rock Tyre Centre Probe has carried Allen Puglia to a shock grand final win at the Perth Motorplex last Saturday, sowing up a sixth Super Comp Drag Racing track championship for the Wanneroo based stonemason.

Puglia entered the final round of the 2013-14 series in third spot behind two young guns in Kyle Putland and Andrew Katavatis, who were expected to fight it out to the death, but a pair of start line blunders eliminated the two championship hopefuls early in the event, leaving Puglia with the unlikely opportunity to claw back the championship if only he could win the event.

With the track crowded by nervous stakeholders, Puglia saved his best for last staking a 7.18 second pass at 307kph to take out an ailing Brett Glover to win the Grand Final and claim the series in the process.

“With such a hard... [Read More]

Pete Farber Racing CRC sponsored Daytona looks to make a move up the points ladder at NHRA SpringNationals

(4-22-2014) BALDWINVILLE, MA – After a disappointing start of the season on the newly build Dan Page 69’ Dodge Daytona Pro Mod at the NHRA Gatornationals in March, the team decided to regroup and visit Pete Farber’s old stomping grounds, the NEOPMA (Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association) Door Wars event April 11-13 at Maryland International Raceway.

“We had chassis setup issues at the Gators and did not have a lot of testing time prior to the Gators as we just completed the car a few weeks earlier.” Farber said. “Going to the NEOPMA Door Wars event which is quarter mile and similar rules to NHRA gave us a chance to get the chassis right and compete with some great Pro Mods.”

After struggling in Fridays test sessions and the first two qualifiers on Saturday, the team felt... [Read More]
