» Jason Line NHRA U.S. Nationals Final Race Report
Jason Line leaves U.S. Nationals as No. 1 seed heading into Countdown

(9-2-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The 60th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals only served to add fuel to Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Jason Line's fire. He came into raceday with three consecutive wins in a row on his scorecard and was hoping for a fourth, but the final outcome was still an extraordinary accomplishment as he will enter the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship as the top seed. The six-race playoffs will begin in just two weeks in Charlotte.

The drawn out Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis saw Line qualify at the top of the pack with a series of dominating passes, and at the heart of the Indy race was the completion of the rain delayed Nationals that were supposed to be held two weeks ago at Brainerd International Raceway, Minnesota-native...

Jonathan Gray earns spot in Countdown

(9-2-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – There is no denying the electricity surrounding Indy, and the 60th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals certainly did not disappoint, particularly for the charging Gray Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro Pro Stock team. The long Labor Day weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway was chock full of ups and downs and came to a dramatic conclusion on Monday as rookie of the year contender Jonathan Gray fought his way back into the top 10 to join his teammates and lock into a spot in the Countdown to the Championship playoffs while older brother Shane Gray scored his first win of the year in a final-round battle with their Gray Motorsports teammate Dave Connolly.

Jonathan Gray accomplished what many would have considered the unthinkable when he unseated multi-time Pro Stock world champ Greg Anderson to claim the 10th and final spot in the Countdown... [Read More]

Johnson ready to move on to Charlotte

(9-2-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Allen Johnson, racing out of the No. 6 position in his “Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar” Dodge Dart, reeled off a 6.640/208.52 to begin eliminations and dispatch Chris McGaha. Johnson’s bid for his first U.S. Nationals victory ended in the quarterfinals, where his car shook and bounced shortly after launch, resulting in a losing 7.064/169.25 run to winner Shane Gray’s 6.634/208.36. Gray went on to win his first U.S. Nationals Pro Stock title and first victory of the season.

“We have never quite learned how to overcome being first out after a fresh drag (of track prep), and the virus we’ve been battling in the car got us again,” Johnson said. “No way to simulate that behind the fuel cars, because it’s just not consistent. It’s something we’ve got to get better at. Normally we’re the faster car so we’re not first out and that’s... [Read More]

Son's U.S. Nationals victory eases Troy Coughlin's pain from Pro Mod loss

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The pain from losing in the semifinals of the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals washed away after JEGS.com Pro Mod driver Troy Coughlin watched his son win a few moments later.

The elder Coughlin had just lost to Rickie Smith in the Pro Mod semifinals on Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, but then he was able to be with son T.J., who won in Super Gas.

"We definitely want to win, no doubt," Coughlin said. "But to see any one of the Coughlin family win is awesome. It's such a great feeling, and it eases the pain from the issue that we had tonight."

Coughlin was the No. 2 qualifier for the U.S. Nationals and marched through the first two rounds Monday, but against Smith he had a problem with his Corvette as he neared the finish line, enabling... [Read More]

Shane Gray wins Chevrolet Performanc​e U.S. Nationals

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Shane Gray and the Gray Motorsports team accomplished something truly remarkable today at Lucas Oil Raceway by winning the 60th anniversary Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, and they did so in dominating style as each of the three Gray Motorsports Chevrolet Camaros advanced to the semifinals and two moved ahead to square off for the most prestigious title in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

Gray, of Mooresville, N.C., claimed the fourth NHRA Pro Stock trophy of his career in his 12th final round with a defeat of teammate Dave Connolly. Connolly launched with a .013-second reaction time to Gray's respectable .034 but soon got into trouble and shook the tires just as he was leaving the starting line. Gray sealed the win with a 6.641-second pass at 208.42 mph to Connolly's troubled 28-second run.

(9-1-2014) BROWNSBURG, IN – Reigning NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series world champion Rickie Smith raced to the NHRA Pro Mod Series victory Monday at the 60th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, the world’s most prestigious race. Pro Mod racing was presented by JEGS at the event.

Smith ran his ’68 IDG Camaro to a 5.901-second pass at 245.72 mph, defeating Pete Farber in the final. It was Smith’s second win of the season and sixth of his career. Smith, the runner-up at Indianapolis last season, defeated Danny Rowe, Jeff Naiser and Troy Coughlin on the way to the final.

Farber drove his CRC Brakeleen Dodge Daytona to the final round with victories over Steven Whiteley, Steve Matusek and Billy Glidden. It was his second final round appearance of the season, following a victory in Bristol. Farber was appearing... [Read More]

DeJoria, Crampton, S. Gray and Krawiec race to victory at Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals

(9-1-2014) BROWNSBURG, IN – Alexis DeJoria raced past 16-time Funny Car world champ John Force Monday to win the 60th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, the world’s most prestigious drag race.

Richie Crampton (Top Fuel), Shane Gray (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also were first time winners at the tradition-rich NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, the last race of the regular season.

DeJoria crossed the finish line in 4.038 seconds at 310.34 mph in the Patron XO Cafe Toyota Camry to defeat the current Funny Car points leader, who won the Traxxas Nitro Shootout Sunday. It was the third win of DeJoria’s season and her first at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. With the victory, DeJoria became the fourth female winner of... [Read More]

Coughlin looks ahead to Countdown after bowing out early at Indy

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Defending Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. is looking forward to a run at the championship after the JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge driver lost in the first round of the U.S. Nationals on Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

Coughlin won two races in the six-race Countdown to the Championship in 2013 en route to his fifth Pro Stock title. He also started off the Countdown with a victory at zMax Dragway in Charlotte, N.C., and hopes to get off to a similar start this season.

"We'll turn our attention now to the Countdown," Coughlin said. "It's what we work the entire year for, to be in the elite top 10 and to be able to run for this championship. We'll finish somewhere in the top five and go from there."

Coughlin, gunning for his fourth U.S. Nationals victory in Pro... [Read More]

Brogdon's Owens Corning Camaro wins Best Appearing Car at U.S. Nationals

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Rodger Brogdon and his Owens Corning Chevrolet Camaro were winners even before final eliminations for the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals began.

Brogdon's Camaro was voted Best Appearing Car at the U.S. Nationals, and he and his team were honored before driver introductions Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway.

"That's pretty cool," said Brogdon, who later dropped a first-round match to Jason Line. "The ol' Pink Panther car looks pretty sweet, and we're proud to win that award. Thanks to all the guys who designed the paint scheme; they did a helluva job."

Brogdon debuted the car this weekend thanks to a title sponsorship deal with Owens Corning, the world's largest manufacturer of fiberglass and related products and a Fortune 500 company.

Tucker continues to build momentum after weekend in Indianapol​is

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – With only six total professional passes at Lucas Oil Raceway in his career, Pro Stock driver Shane Tucker had a solid weekend at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals despite a first-round loss.

A slight issue on his burnout couldn't faze Tucker, who ran his fastest speed of the weekend in round one of eliminations at 208.71 mph. With almost identical reaction times, .052 to .050, Tucker's Auzmet Chevrolet Camaro was just one-hundredth off from upsetting No. 3 seed Shane Gray.

"We were prepared for the track today for sure," Tucker said. "I haven't been able to look at the speed we ran but we really haven't found the sweet spot of the car yet. That's going against us a little bit but it's getting better. I felt good heading into the first round today.

"We had... [Read More]

Enders-Ste​vens is the No. 2 seed for Countdown after U.S. Nationals

(9-1-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – A Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals victory may have slipped through Engines Inc. Pro Stock driver Erica Enders-Stevens' fingers, but she still leaves Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis on Monday very proud.

Enders-Stevens dropped a second-round match to Dave Connolly, but she will be the No. 2 seed when the Countdown to the Championship begins in two weeks at zMax Dragway in Charlotte, N.C.

"Even though we didn't win the U.S. Nationals, and that was our goal, we can leave here with our heads held high," Enders-Stevens said. "We've got a good car and the best team in the sport. It would've been nice to win here, but it starts to matter at the next event."

Enders-Stevens has had a dream season, winning four national events and the K&N Horsepower Challenge.... [Read More]
