» Jason Line NHRA Sonoma Nationals Final Race Report
Jason Line wins Sonoma, scores 200th for Chevrolet in NHRA Pro Stock

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – Jason Line made history on Sunday at the 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Line, of Mooresville, N.C., locked in a spot in NHRA's Countdown to the Championship and earned the 33rd Pro Stock victory of his career at Sonoma Raceway, and in doing so he earned the 200th NHRA Pro Stock win for Chevrolet driving the Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro. The spectacular accomplishment came on the heels of a low qualifier award last week in Denver.

Line, who started from the No. 2 spot in Sonoma, had the quickest and fastest hot rod on the property on raceday at a facility where he has twice before seen the inside of the winner's circle (2006 and 2009). Dominating at Sonoma Raceway once again, Line clocked low elapsed time in each round of eliminations and crossed the finish line with a remarkably stout 6.520 at... [Read More]
» Jeg Coughlin Jr. NHRA Sonoma Nationals Final Race Report
Semifinal finish helps Coughlin clinch Countdown to the Championsh​ip berth

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – A strong semifinal run in Sunday's NHRA Sonoma Nationals resulted in reigning Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. earning his ticket to this year's six-race Countdown to the Championship, which begins in mid-September.

Coughlin drove his JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge Dart to victories against Deric Kramer and four-time world champion Greg Anderson before bowing to veteran Vieri Gaines when Coughlin's car got squirrelly a few hundred feet into his run.

"It wasn't a bad weekend at all; actually it was a very good weekend," Coughlin said. " We made it to the semifinals, which was better than a bunch of the others here. Qualifying went well in all but one session and it was more of the same today, so we continue to feel like we have a great race car."

Coughlin gave up a... [Read More]
» NHRA Sonoma Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Final Results
Courtney Force becomes winningest female Funny Car category driver in NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series; alBalooshi, Line and Krawiec also victorious at Sonoma Raceway

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – Courtney Force beat father John Force in the final to become the winningest female in Funny Car history at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals on Sunday.

Khalid alBalooshi (Top Fuel), Jason Line (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also were winners at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Sonoma Raceway.

Force, who won the 100th race by a female driver in the NHRA professional classes at Topeka, outran her father with a 4.253-second pass at 296.24 mph in her Traxxas Ford Mustang to claim her fifth career victory. With the win, Force broke a tie with sister Ashley Force Hood for the most all-time wins by a female in Funny Car.

“It’s cool to reach number five,”... [Read More]
» Larry Morgan NHRA Sonoma Nationals Final Race Report
Morgan can't overcome Anderson's fast start in Sonoma

(7-27-2014) SONOMA, CA – Lucas Oil Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan knew he was in trouble right at the Christmas Tree.

In the first round of the NHRA Sonoma Nationals on Sunday at Sonoma Raceway against four-time Pro Stock champion Greg Anderson, Morgan watched Anderson immediately pull away.

"When I let the clutch out, it didn't go anywhere," Morgan said. "I watched Greg Anderson put five car lengths on me -- five. He drove around me like I was stopped."

Morgan and his team had installed a new engine in their Ford Mustang for Sunday's eliminations after the race motor burned a piston Saturday during the third qualifying session.

The backup engine had not been run, which meant Morgan had to use an untested tune-up, too. He recorded a 6.693 at 206.64 mph, but Anderson ran away to victory with a pass... [Read More]
» NAS Racing PDRA U.S. Drags Final Results
Musi gets breakthrou​gh PDRA win at Richmond; Snider, Goforth and Rivenbark also victorious

(7-27-2014) DINWIDDIE, VA – Lizzy Musi, the 23-year-old daughter of doorslammer drag racing legend Pat Musi, earned her career-first win Saturday night in the inaugural Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) U.S. Drags at Virginia Motorsports Park (VMP), near Richmond. Musi beat points leader Jason Harris in the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous final, ending Harris' undefeated streak from all four PDRA races previously held this year.

Also picking up pro class wins were Brandon Snider in the NAS Racing Pro Extreme class, Cary Goforth with his third Aruba.com Extreme Pro Stock victory of the season, Kevin Rivenbark in Precision Turbo/Proline Pro Boost and veteran rider Billy Vose with his first PDRA win in Pro Extreme Motorcycle.

Sportsman class victories went to Bruce Thrift in Magnafuel... [Read More]

A. Hines defeats Pollacheck to win MiraMonte Pro Bike Battle at Sonoma Raceway; B. Force, C. Force, S. Gray and Savoie earn No. 1 qualifying positions

(7-26-2014) SONOMA, CA – Andrew Hines drove to victory in the inaugural MiraMonte Records Pro Bike Battle, closing out an action packed Saturday at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.

In other racing on Saturday, Brittany Force (Top Fuel), Courtney Force (Funny Car), Shane Gray (Pro Stock) and Jerry Savoie (Pro Stock Motorcycle) earned No. 1 qualifying positions and will lead their categories into Sunday’s 11 a.m. eliminations at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event in Northern California.

Hines, the current points leader in Pro Stock Motorcycle, defeated Scotty Pollacheck in the specialty bonus event final with a 6.835-second run at 196.02 on his Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson. He beat John... [Read More]
» Hot Rodders Of Tomorrow Completes Sixth Regular Season Of Inspiring Young Automotive Enthusiasts
Hot Rodders of Tomorrow completes sixth regular season of inspiring young automotive enthusiasts

(7-26-2014) JOLIET, IL – Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is a powerful tool in shaping the next generation of car enthusiasts. This nonprofit organization hosts “Engine Challenges” across the country in which high school teams compete against each other in complete engine rebuilds. With their sixth regular season under their belts, Hot Rodders of Tomorrow has impacted over 3,114 students, encouraging their automotive passion and skill.

"Growing up in this industry in a family business in the 1970's, I have been disappointed by the lack of the ‘next generation’ getting excited about our industry,” expressed John DeBlaso, Vice President of Purchasing for AAM. “Of course there is much more to occupy young folks attentions today than we had 30-40 years ago. The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow program is just what we need... [Read More]
» NAS Racing PDRA U.S. Drags Friday Qualifying Results
Stanton, Musi, Gahm and Tutterow lead day one of qualifying for PDRA at Richmond

(7-26-2014) DINWIDDIE, VA – Past class champion Bubba Stanton stepped up July 25, to lead the top-ranked Pro Extreme class after two qualifying sessions for the inaugural Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) U.S. Drags. Stanton covered the eighth mile at Virginia Motorsports Park, near Richmond, in 3.535 seconds at 217.18 mph with his supercharged 1969 Camaro.

Also leading the PDRA pro classes with one more round of qualifying scheduled for Saturday (July 26) before elimination rounds begin that afternoon, was Lizzy Musi in Pro Nitrous, Brian Gahm in Extreme Pro Stock, Todd Tutterow in Pro Boost and Travis Davis in Pro Extreme Motorcycle.

B. Force, C. Force, Line and Hall top qualifying leaderboards Friday at NHRA Sonoma Nationals

(7-26-2014) SONOMA, CA – Courtney Force raced to the current No. 1 qualifying position in Funny Car during Friday qualifying at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals.

Brittany Force (Top Fuel), Jason Line (Pro Stock) and John Hall (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also were qualifying leaders at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event in Northern California.

Courtney Force ran a 4.045-second pass at 319.22 mph in her Traxxas Ford Mustang to claim the top spot after the first day of qualifying. Force, who claimed the 100th win by a female driver in NHRA history at Topeka, is looking for her third top starting spot of the season.

“It’s always a good day for me if I’m paired up to next to my dad and I can turn on a win light,” said Force, who has five career No. 1 qualifiers. “I don’t care if... [Read More]
» Chris McGaha NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Chris McGaha and Harlow Sammons team forging their own path in second half of 2014 season

(7-25-2014) SONOMA, CA – NHRA Pro Stock driver Chris McGaha truly is in the midst of a banner year as the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series digs into the second half of the season, and it hasn't been without challenge. The future, though, is something that is becoming even brighter for the Odessa, Texas-based competitor as he finds his own way.

"It has been bittersweet – not just for me, but for the whole team, the original crew," said McGaha. "Would we do it all over again if we could? Sometimes, we don't think we would."

The focus on McGaha's team has been tremendous since his acquisition of former Pro Stock world champion Mike Edwards' very decorated car and equipment, with big question marks hovering around their camp while speculation ran wild as to whether or not McGaha and the Harlow... [Read More]

Drag Racing Best News ready to bring Pro Mod action to Colonial Beach Dragstrip

(7-25-2014) COLONIAL BEACH, VA – Last August Drag Racing Best News put on the Back to School Jam event featuring a $5,000 winner-take-all Pro Mod Shootout. During the event, K&S productions decided to cover the event, which forged a new partnership between Drag Racing Best News & K&S Productions.

To be honest it's turned into a good friendship because we talk at least 3 or 4 times a week. Shawn Kelly and I respect the guys at DRBN's determination to put on the best show possible.

"We have always set our goals extremely high at giving the fans, tracks and racers the very best show possible, so working with Dean has been easy. We have plans for the future, and look forward to continuing this successful partnership," said Shawn Kelly from K&S Produtions.

Mike Janis Racing heads to PDRA Virginia

(7-24-2014) ELMA, NY – Pro Mod Driver Mike Janis and his Mike Janis Racing (MJR) racing team will be headed to the PDRA event in Richmond, Virginia July 25-26. Currently, Janis is sitting 2nd in the NHRA Pro Mod Championship points, only 11 points out of 1st. Janis is very excited to head over and race with all the great PDRA teams, but he will be taking a little different approach headed into the weekend.

“To say we plan on heading to Virginia in a conservative manner is far from the truth,” said Mike Janis Jr., GM/Crew Chief at MJR. “Other than the car and driver, I don't think there is a single component on the car that is the same as we have been running all year. We have a new Jan-Cen Racing Engines/Mike Janis Superchargers engine between the rails which we have worked very hard on in-house. The converter is different, the fuel pump is different, the...

Line on a roll as NHRA tour blasts into Sonoma

(7-24-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Last weekend, Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Jason Line made incredible gains in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro and saw reward for many hours of hard work put in at the race shop in Mooresville, N.C. This weekend, the two-time Sonoma winner will be looking to continue the steady upswing at the 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals in the heart of Northern California's wine country.

Qualifying in the No. 1 position last week in Denver – at one of the most challenging facilities on the tour due to high altitude, horsepower diminishing conditions – ramped up Line's confidence and that of the Summit Racing team. It was their first low qualifier award in a season that, for Line, has so far included a win and two additional final-round finishes.

"Last weekend was very encouraging for the KB Racing crew, so we're... [Read More]

Richmond race may rearrange PDRA points chase this weekend

(7-24-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – With four races left in its inaugural eight-race season, the all-eighth-mile Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) heads to Virginia Motorsports Park, near Richmond, this weekend (July 24-26), for the NAS Racing PDRA U.S. Drags. With 100 points available for each round win, each event continues to take on significance.

After winning all four previous events this year, though, it probably won’t concern Jason Harris, who has a stranglehold on the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous lead. At 2,211 points, the Pittsboro, NC-based racer has nearly double the points of his closest rival, Tommy Franklin (1,150), who is closely followed by Pat Stoken, class rookie Lizzy Musi and Tim Savell.

A trio of past world champions with a prior organization head up the star-studded NAS Racing Pro Extreme points list,... [Read More]

Gray Motorsports seeking resurgence in Sonoma

(7-24-2014) DENVER, NC – This weekend's 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals should be time for resurgence for the Gray Motorsports NHRA Pro Stock team and drivers Shane Gray, Dave Connolly and Jonathan Gray. Last weekend in Denver, the mile-high thin air provided a tremendous challenge for the Pro Stock teams, but this weekend the tour returns to sea level Sonoma Raceway – and the conditions at the scenic facility nestled in the Northern California's wine country have been receptive to the Gray Motorsports group in the past.

Last season Shane had the fastest car on the property, and Dave has twice before seen the inside of the final round in Sonoma, once racing to victory. For top rookie of the year contender Jonathan, this season's event will mark his first time racing in California – but he arrives with confidence as he recalls his father... [Read More]
