Perry Maxwell celebrates 20 years with O'Rourke Motorsport

(11-26-2015) JOYNER, QLD – O'Rourke Motorsport's Perry Maxwell has this year celebrated 20 years with the team - celebrating the milestone at the same time as his 56th birthday during the 2015 Fuchs Winternationals.

"I think I have celebrated around twelve birthdays at the Winternationals," laughed Maxwell.

While Maxwell's involvement with the O'Rourkes is long, his participation in drag racing as a whole is even longer - spanning some 39 years.

"I had a panel van which I drove at Ravenswood Raceway when I was 17 years old, and then I played around with some street cars with Wayne Keys and it progressed from there," said Maxwell.

"In 1994 I met Grant at the Australian Nationals. I had never met him before, and I had heard that a young guy had broken his engine pretty badly on his first pass, and... [Read More]

Drag racing icon Shirley Muldowney resigns from B.R.A.K.E.S. board

(11-25-2015) HUNTERSVILLE, NC – Drag racing legend Shirley Muldowney has resigned from the Board of Directors at B.R.A.K.E.S., a North Carolina-based charity that promotes safe driving among teenagers.

"An opportunity has come up with another entity that will be a really wonderful deal for me personally, so I have resigned from B.R.A.K.E.S. effective immediately," Muldowney said. "I appreciate and cherish the time I had with board members Wanda Miller, Dave Dobson, and Mickey Aberman and I believe in the mission of B.R.A.K.E.S.

"I'm thrilled about the future, which has many possibilities that I will be at more NHRA races throughout the year. I've always enjoyed spending time with my wonderful fans, and the chance to see more of them has me very excited. Stay tuned for more good news coming very soon."

Family race rivals to clash at Spring Nationals this weekend at Meremere Dragway

(11-24-2015) MEREMERE, NZ – Two family racing teams are to dispute 6-second bragging rights when the new drag racing season hits full throttle this weekend.

The Hay family Evil II roadster and the Alsop brothers Pro Mod-style Willys Coupe are contenders for competition class honours at Sunday’s Spring Nationals at Meremere Dragway.

Fierce racing rivals — and good friends off the track — the two teams are now more closely matched than ever following a supercharger and fuel system upgrade for the car campaigned by Christchurch’s Johnny and Nigel Alsop.

As well as North-South needle and a “battle of the sexes” behind the wheel it’s a quarter-mile rivalry between two crowd-pleasing Altereds, which are different concept but similar in performance.

The ’27 T roadster of Rotorua’s... [Read More]

Keith Haney Racing ready for next year after fast close to 2015 season

(11-23-2015) TULSA, OK – There's an old adage in racing that's apropos for the 2015 season of Keith Haney and his Keith Haney Racing team: "It's not how you start, it's how you finish."

Haney's Lucas Oil/RacingJunk.com Pro Nitrous Chevrolet Camaro closed out the year with quick elapsed times and high speed, capping a second-half surge that made him a consistent contender in the Professional Drag Racers Association.

"I could not be any happier with the way things ended, other than I wish I would've won," Haney said. "I wish we would've found the last half of the year at the beginning of the season. We would've won some races then."

Early in the year, Haney struggled with an older-version engine, and his team didn't perform at a high level, but after upgrading to a Reher-Morrison Racing... [Read More]

"Las Vegas has been very, very good to us," Coughlin said. "I should pick up gambling because we always seem to do well in this town. On second thought, I'll save all my good fortune for the drag strip. That's much more enjoyable for me.

"We had about a perfect weekend out there, and more importantly we had a bunch of fun with all the other drivers. The pressure of... [Read More]

(11-20-2015) ELMA, NY – Mike Janis and his Mike Janis Racing (MJR) Team have nothing to hang their heads about as the 2015 season has come to an end on the track. Janis finished second in the 2015 NHRA Pro Mod World Championship points standings, a mere fourteen points out of first place which is less than one round. Janis, who is also referred to as “The People’s Champ” because of what he brings to the sport, could not be more proud of his organization and what it stands for.

“What an incredible year,” said Mike Janis, Owner/Driver at MJR. “To be able to finish second in the world is just awesome. Obviously if we would’ve walked away with the championship that for sure would’ve been better, but there are a lot of other guys behind us who would have loved to be in our spot.

(11-20-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – The world-class Perth Motorplex will move to full International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) sanctioning from 1 December 2015.

The venue’s management will make the switch to the internationally renowned IHRA with long-term sustainability and growth at the forefront of its decision making process.

The car is headed to Vito Antonocelli Race Cars in Buffalo, NY for some updates and the team is looking to make their 2016 debut this coming January at Bradenton Motorsports Park for pre season testing.
