» ANDRA Fuchs Spring Nationals Preview
Zappia can clinch Top Doorslammer title in Adelaide

(9-29-2014) VIRGINIA, SA – Aussie Drag Racing legend and Top Doorslammer Champion John Zappia could add lucky number #7 to his six consecutive titles since 2008 this weekend at the Fuchs Spring Nationals in Adelaide.

The Fuchs/Striker Monaro has been a dominant force yet again this season coming off three successive ANDRA Drag Racing Series victories to hold a 138 point lead over his nearest rival Stuart Bishop.

Zappia is confident progression through the first round on Sunday should be enough to clinch the title or at the very least heap more pressure on Bishop.

“I’m pretty sure we only need to go past the first round,” says Zappia.

“We’re 138 points ahead. If we both get through the first round, then he can only gain 140 more points if I lost there and went out in the first round in Sydney (at the... [Read More]
» O’Rourke Motorsport ANDRA Spring Nationals Preview
O’Rourke ready to 'Spring' into action at AIR

(9-29-2014) BRISBANE, QLD – The O’Rourke Motorsport show will soon be on the road to Adelaide International Raceway, where Grant O’Rourke and his Pontiac Firebird Top Doorslammer will compete in the Spring Nationals across October 4 and 5.

The 44 year old is currently locked in an intense battle with Peter Kapiris for third position in his first full Top Doorslammer season in nine years, leading Kapiris by just 15 points with two rounds of racing still to be held.

In preparation for the Spring Nationals, it has been a busy Winter break for the husband and wife O’Rourke Motorsport outfit, with a new workshop built and a new sponsor welcomed to the team in QCS Group.

“Since racing in Darwin in July, we have been hard at work having a new workshop built to house our transporter, both of our race cars and supply an ample... [Read More]
» ANDRA Benaraby Nationals Preview
Barbagallo confident of big show in Benaraby

(9-29-2014) GLADSTONE, QLD – Pro Stock gun John Barbagallo will make his debut at Benaraby Raceway in the penultimate round of the Australian Pro Stock Championship next week.

The excitement Barbagallo shows for the Benaraby Nationals is infectious as he gears up to face his mates Aaron and Tyronne Tremayne who are attempting to close in on the ANDRA Drag Racing Series title.

“Aaron and Tyronne are great racers and friends of mine,” he said.

“Their heart and soul are into this category. The best thing about those guys running fast is that it has lit a fire in my belly. Now I have a goal again, to go faster! Bring on Benaraby!”

Aside from another excuse to get out on track, Barbagallo sees this event as an ideal opportunity to promote the sport and the Pro Stock bracket in an area largely patronised by grass... [Read More]

(9-29-2014) TALLMADGE, OH – European Pro Stock racer Jimmy Ålund won his ninth championship at the season-ending FIA European Drag Racing Finals held September 4-7 at Santa Pod Raceway in the United Kingdom.

This championship highlighted a wild year for Ålund. He began the season driving the Summit Racing/KB Racing Pro Stock Camaro in NHRA competition while Greg Anderson was recuperating from surgery. Ålund steadily improved during the five events he competed in, culminating with a win at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in April.

Ålund returned to his native Sweden to run the FIA European Drag Racing Series. His J&J Performance team had a new Camaro, engines from KB Racing, and associate sponsorship from Summit Racing. However, the team had issues matching all of its KB Racing horsepower to race tracks that varied greatly in... [Read More]

» Pete Farber Racing NHRA Midwest Nationals Final Race Report
Wild ride ends with race-endin​g wreck, Farber walks away unhurt

(9-29-2014) BALDWINVILLE, MA – Pete Farber Racing's weekend at the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals Pro Mod race at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, IL came to an unfortunate end on Friday, September 26, 2014 after a wreck sidelined the team.

Starting the weekend off with high hopes, Farber and his crew prepped their supercharged CRC Automotive Brākleen ‘69 Dodge Daytona and were ready to go when the call to the staging lanes was made for the first round of Pro Mod qualifying.

Set to run in the left lane, Farber pulled through the water box and completed his burnout without an issue. He staged his car, and when the green light lit, he dropped the hammer and got started on what should have been a flawless run. Farber encountered unexpected severe tire shake almost immediately after leaving the starting... [Read More]
» Mike Knowles NHRA Midwest Nationals Final Race Report
Mike Knowles takes first career Pro Mod win at AAA Midwest Nationals

(9-29-2014) MADISON, IL – Mike Knowles’ Blown Money team is one of the highest profiled teams on the NHRA Pro Mod circuit. Their dedication to excellence is evident to anyone who gets just a quick glimpse of their operation but, for many a year the winner’s circle at an NHRA event has evaded them. That was until this past weekend.

Knowles advanced to the finals of the NHRA Pro Mod class at the AAA Insurance Midwest Nationals held at Gateway Motorsports Park near St. Louis, Mo. from the 14th qualifying position. He was able to defeat Steven Whiteley in round one, followed by a win over Kevin Fiscus in round two, and then Todd Tutterow in the semi-finals.

As if heading into only your second career wasn't drama enough; Knowles had to stop his wife and children from catching their flight home to ensure they... [Read More]

Line has maintained his grip on the points lead in each of the first three races of the Countdown to the Championship and has been to two final rounds in the six-race playoffs.

On Sunday in St. Louis, Line started from the No. 3 position and began his pursuit of the title with a first-round victory over second-generation drag racer Aaron Stanfield. Line clocked a 6.556-second pass at 211.76 mph in an automatic win over his red-lighting... [Read More]
