» ANDRA Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series Westernationals Final Results
Summit Sportsman Series goes off in Western Australia

(2-1-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – The second round of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series saw Western Australia's best drag racers taking on more than a few interstate rivals for ANDRA Gold Christmas trees and valuable national points, with the action coming thick and fast.

Competition eliminator's national champion Al McClure proved unbeatable again in his BB/FCA, taking a win over friend and rival Kyle Putland.

McClure's 6.404 on a 6.65 index was close to the national record and was able to run away from Putland, whose AA/A had clutch issues that saw him out of the throttle early.

“He's a good boy, but I deserve the gold trophy,” laughed McClure.

Despite the victory, McClure said it came the hard way, thanking his wife Natalie for putting up with his antics under stress.

Zappia doubles up, Phillips opens account at 44th Westernationals

(1-31-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – John Zappia is two from two in the ANDRA Drag Racing Series Top Doorslammer Championship following victory in the 44th annual Westernationals at Perth Motorplex, while Gary Phillips returned to the winner's circle of Top Alcohol but not without a serious challenge.

Zappia took the finish line stripe in one of the most thrilling Top Doorslammer finals ever seen. A holeshot at the start line allowed Kapiris to get an early lead but Zappia clawed it back piece by piece until snatching away the trophy in the 5.78 to 5.81 contest.

The margin of victory at the finish was just 0.007 of a second. Zappia said it was awesome to see his Fuchs/Striker Monaro alongside the Kapiris Saratoga throughout the race.

“I knew they (Kapiris' team) were going to step up,” he said. “Craig from... [Read More]
» PDRA Announces Top Sportsman FTI Performance #1 Qualifier Award
PDRA Top Sportsman racers have extra incentive to go for low qualifier in 2015

(1-31-2015) PITTSBORO, NC – The Professional Drag Racers Association is known for its highly competitive eighth mile doorslammer racing. Though considered a sportsman class because of its bracket racing format, Top Sportsman (TS) is arguably one of the toughest and most fascinating classes in the series. Qualifying competition is fierce, requiring the top 16 to run a 4.160 or better to make the PDRA Finals in Virginia last October. Once qualified these men and women must dial their cars in running 4.10s or better, judging the finish line at around 180 MPH.

For 2015, veteran TS racer Bruce Thrift has teamed up with FTI Performance to sponsor a #1 Qualifier Award for each of the 10 events on the tour. The FTI Performance #1 Qualifier Award will present a plaque and $300 to each of the top qualifiers, beginning at the Texas... [Read More]

Kapiris goes back to step forward at 44th Westernationals

(1-30-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – Peter Kapiris has gone from not qualifying at the opening round of the ANDRA Drag Racing Series Top Doorslammer Championship to being top of the pile in round two, as Gary Phillips laid down a surprisingly quick run to lead Top Alcohol on day one of the 44th Westernationals at Perth Motorplex.

Kapiris' 5.87 just edged a 5.89 from John Zappia and for the energetic Victorian it was a case of going back to what he knew.

“We've got the old mojo back,” Kapiris said. “Going back to what we know will get us down the track, even if it doesn't move our times ahead.

“Testing in qualifying kicked us in the butt at the last event, so we have decided now to test when we can and if it doesn't work go back to what we know.”

With delays for clean ups during the night, Top... [Read More]

Ladbrook, Norman among early leaders in Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series

(1-30-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – Leading the way in Competition Eliminator and putting himself in the box seat for the Summit Racing Equipment prize pack was Russell Ladbrook, with the AA/FC racer saying he just wanted to make his veteran crew chief Stuart Rowland happy.

“I heard some rumours he (Rowland) was a bit excited with what we did,” Ladbrook said. “The track was a little bit slippier but all in all it went fine.”


Competition has one round of qualifying remaining tomorrow.

“We will try and go a bit harder, a bit quicker and see if we can keep the crew chief happy,” Ladbrook said.

Although the Westernationals is a prestigious and sought after title, it hasn't always been kind to Ladbrook, a West Australian based driver.

“Our last... [Read More]

Reigning Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders-Stevens remains focused in 2015 heading to Circle K NHRA Winternationals

(1-29-2015) POMONA, CA – Erica Enders-Stevens put together a history-making 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, finishing off her banner year by becoming the first female Pro Stock champion in NHRA history.

With the season-opening Circle K NHRA Winternationals approaching at historic Auto Club Raceway, Feb. 5-8 at Pomona, it might be hard for Enders-Stevens not to look back and re-live all of the magical moments that made up her thrilling 2014 championship season.

But it also serves as motivation as she enters the first race of her Pro Stock career with the “No. 1” on the side of her Elite Motorsports Chevy Camaro.

"We're the defending world champions, and it's a pretty awesome place to be,” Stevens said. “I guess it really hasn't... [Read More]

Sonny's Racing Engines announces Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge

(1-29-2015) PITTSBORO, NC – Sonny's Racing Engines is proud to announce that they will once again be providing support to PDRA competitors with the Sonny's Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge.

Building on the success they had as an integral part of the PDRA's inaugural 2014 season, Sonny's Racing Engines, of Lynchburg, Virginia, has stepped up once again to the tune of $33,000 in contingency and bonus payouts.

This season the Sonny's Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge will pay $500.00 to the No.1 qualifiers in the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous category, regardless of what engine they use.

In addition, at all 10 events Sonny's will pay $1,000.00 to the Pro Nitrous winner and $300.00 to the runner-up if they are running a Sonny's engine.

"The Pro Nitrous class has been growing and we are... [Read More]

Testing times see OMS ready to rock at Westernationals

(1-28-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – Debbie and Grant O’Rourke are ready to tackle the prestigious 44th Westernationals at the Perth Motorplex this weekend (30-31 January), following a strenuous day of testing at their original ‘home track’ Wednesday.

While this is the second event of the year at the West Australian venue for the ex-pats following the season-opening January 9 event in which Grant competed in the Top Doorslammer category, it will be the first competitive outing of the year for Debbie.

“I have a new fuel and clutch combination in my car and am competing in my first event of the year this weekend, so we took the opportunity to complete some testing on-track yesterday,” said Debbie.

“Very hot conditions, data logger issues and the discovery of a broken diff stud after our first pass meant... [Read More]

Top Sportsman to run for first time in the west

(1-28-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – The 44th annual Westernationals will see a brand new category of racing run for the first time at Perth Motorplex when Top Sportsman hits the track.

Nine drivers are looking forward to competing in the class, which is for sedans running quicker than 8.50 seconds, and forms part of the national Summit Sportsman Series.

For long time Super Sedan racer Kevin Hort, the opportunity to try a new type of racing is exciting.

“It’s an unknown because none of us have had the chance to race Top Sportsman yet,” he said. “As the idea takes off I’m sure we’re going to get more and more cars.”

Top Sportsman effectively takes what used to be the quick end of Super Sedan and matches up these high speed vehicles with one another.

“I’ll go from being one of the fastest Super... [Read More]

Marty Dack: “I have been taking archery lessons”

(1-28-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – The Holden versus Ford battle may be on it’s way out in V8 Supercars but it is alive and well in ANDRA Drag Racing as Marty Dack flies the blue oval flag in the face of Holden stalwarts John Zappia and Maurice Fabietti.

At a time when Ford backs away from motorsport as a company it is left to dedicated racers like Dack to take up the mantle and keep the fight alive.

“I have been a Ford man for my entire life,” said Dack. “To drive a Ford in an eliminator where they are quite rare is an honour. We will do our best to run the blue oval high and proud and hopefully you will see the Valvoline Ford Falcon in the winners circle on Saturday night.”

An ANDRA Drag Racing Series win on Saturday in the 44th Westernationals at Perth Motorplex would be just reward for Dack’s team after finishing fourth... [Read More]

(1-27-2015) GLENDORA, CA – The NHRA competition committee today announced a points increase for NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series competitors at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, the world’s most prestigious drag race.

San Antonio Nationals postponed, Baton Rouge added to 2015 schedule

(1-27-2015) NORWALK, OH – The San Antonio Nationals originally scheduled for March 13 & 14, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas has been postponed. Replacing that date on the 2015 Nitro Jam Schedule will be the return of the Mardi Gras Nationals at State Capital Raceway, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

"Time was simply running out for a resolution that the track could reopen in time to host the San Antonio Nationals in March," said IHRA President Scott Gardner. "Our parent company, IRG Sports + Entertainment, have been in negotiations to purchase the facility for the past six months and are still pursuing the purchase of this facility. The only thing IRG was not able to confirm for us was a final timetable for the transaction, which is why we had to make this change in the schedule. We are optimistic we will return to San Antonio this fall once... [Read More]
» Glen Vardy Stepping Up His Effort For 2015 Drag Racing Season
Glen Vardy stepping up his effort for 2015 drag racing season

(1-27-2015) BURLINGTON, ON – Glen Vardy is going to be one busy racer this season.

The Burlington Ontario resident, who has competed in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series for the past five years, is planning to ramp up his racing for the 2015 season.

Not only does Vardy plan to continue racing his Top Dragster in the series, he plans on getting into the ultimate in drag racing, a Top Fuel Dragster.

And if that’s not enough, he will be heading up an effort for girl friend Colleen Cook to compete in the Pro Bike & Sled Series, and spend time with his son Gavin who will enter his rookie year in Junior Dragster.

Racing his big-block supercharged Top Dragster, Vardy placed fourth in points in 2014 with a win during the Series’ opening round at Grand Bend. The car, which is crew-chiefed by... [Read More]

High fives now the standard for Priolo

(1-26-2015) KWINANA BEACH, WA – Fresh off his first full season chasing the ANDRA Drag Racing Series around the country, Top Doorslammer driver Pino Priolo has gone from strength to strength achieving his first sub six-second pass (5.979) two weeks ago at Home Group WA Nitro Slam.

The former Sprint Car driver finished sixth in his first full season of the Australian Top Doorslammer championship including a runner up spot to Stuart Bishop in Perth at the Pro Showdown.

“We were real competitive in the West last year so it was time to hit the road,” said Priolo.

“We had fully covered sponsorship from Watson Transport, could not have done it without Rob and Sandra Watson, they transported my container all the way around Australia by road not rail, and finishing in the top six was great after missing one Sydney round due to my sons... [Read More]

Keith Haney Racing helps educate STEM elementary school students

(1-26-2015) BROKEN ARROW, OK – Keith Haney Racing owner/driver Keith Haney helped plant the seeds of drag racing as a career during a recent visit to an elementary school.

Haney took his Pro Nitrous Chevrolet to Rhoades Elementary School in Broken Arrow last week and interacted with more than 400 students who are studying a science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum at the school.

"We thought it would be a great opportunity to allow them to see how these subjects are applied in the racing world," Haney said. "The kids listened to a brief description about the car and how it works, and then I talked to them about the safety aspects of the sport."

The students were attentive and asked numerous, pertinent questions.

"They asked some great questions about our race team, the car,... [Read More]
