» Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Preview
Defending Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders hopes to turn the corner at Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals

(7-28-2016) SONOMA, CA – Erica Enders saw the makings of a turnaround to her 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season begin to unfold last weekend in Denver. The two-time defending Pro Stock world champion knows that not building off that momentum surge would not only be a huge disappointment, but also a huge blow to her chances of competing for a third straight world title.

Enders qualified a season-best second in Denver in her Mopar Performance/Elite Dodge Dart GT, and also earned a round win at the first race of the famed Western Swing.

It was a major step forward in what has been a frustrating year in the redesigned Pro Stock class for the Houston native and her Elite Motorsports team, but Enders knows plenty of work remains beginning at this weekend’s 29th annual Toyota... [Read More]

Gray readies for another trip to the Winner's Circle

(7-28-2016) SONOMA, CA – For the last eight NHRA races in a row, Pro Stock driver Shane Gray has wheeled his Valvoline/Nova Services Chevrolet Camaro to a top-half qualifying berth, signifying he has a racecar fully capable of winning the race. But so far victory has remained just beyond his grasp, a situation he'd like to correct at this weekend's Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals.

"We've had our chances, and I think we're showing now, at times, that we can run up front and take on anybody," Gray said, "but we haven't been able to punch one through yet. That just proves how tough it is at the top level of the sport. Wins and losses are measure in thousandths of a second and you have to be perfect.

"In the past when we've won races, you know it gets hectic right afterwards with media obligations and winner's circle photos and all... [Read More]

400 Thunder Pro Slammer champion: John Zappia

(7-27-2016) MELBOURNE, VIC – Right back at the very birth of Door Slammer racing in Australia, when the class was nothing more than a demonstration support category, was a much younger John Zappia who’s HQ Monaro had already been through an evolutionary process from mild street car, all the way through to a radical, blown race car. John remembers it like it was yesterday – not bad for a man whose career, spanning over two decades, boasts more Championship wins, titles and records in Pro Slammer than any other racer in the country.

“I started racing when I was 17 and by 21 I’d built the very first ‘Zap’s Rat’,” begins the wild Western Australian, whose racing career has seen him dragging various evolutions of his Monaro to all corners of the country to race.

“I inherited an injected big block, then stuck a blower on it and that started the... [Read More]

Johnson hopes to go two for two at Sonoma Nationals

(7-26-2016) GREENEVILLE, TN – Marathon Petroleum/J&J Racing Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson has one Western Swing race win under his belt and as this weekend’s race at Sonoma Raceway approaches, being the first non-KB winner of the season is giving his team some serious propulsion.

“After a few days of rest at home, we are ready and excited about going to the wine country in Sonoma,” Johnson said. “We’re going to repair some parts we hurt in Denver and try some new combinations at this race so I’m looking forward to seeing the results from that too.”

Since his win at the end of the 2015 season and the last race with carburetors, the Pro Stock class has only seen two winners that both belong to the KB Racing team. It is only fitting that Allen Johnson was the first to take home the win in Denver and claim his spot as the first... [Read More]
» Chris McGaha NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
McGaha returns to site of first Pro Stock win

(7-26-2016) ODESSA, TX – Harlow Sammons Pro Stock driver Chris McGaha took home his first Wally in his Pro Stock career just one year ago at the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Returning to Sonoma Raceway this weekend in the second of three races in the Western Swing, McGaha has turned a corner with his fuel injection tune-up just in time to defend his title.

Since his Pro Stock debut at Indy in 2011, McGaha and the Harlow Sammons team has been gunning for their first win. After years of trial and error, McGaha finally put himself in a competitive position when he qualified for the Countdown to the Championship for the first time in 2014. Just one year later, McGaha found himself in the winner circle after defeating V. Gaines, Erica Enders, Jeg Coughlin and Jonathan Gray on his way to his first victory. McGaha qualified No. 1 at the event to secure a... [Read More]

400 Thunder Pro Stock champion: Lee Bektash

(7-26-2016) MELBOURNE, VIC – “It’s the adrenaline. The thrill and the rush. The competition. I’m addicted to the speed!” lists 400 Thunder Champion Lee Bektash as we ask what keeps him engaged with Drag Racing, and Pro Stock. Rising up through the Sportsman ranks, Bektash has been racing Pro Stock for nine seasons now, though admits he and Drag Racing have had an affair stretching back some twenty five years.

“Coming out on top shows that we had the best car on the track,” begins Bektash confidently; “however we know we can improve on it. For starters, we were racing on our spare motor for the whole season which is around 70 horsepower down on our more developed drivetrain. We didn’t do everything perfectly, no one in the field did,” he admits, alluding to exciting racing ahead for fans tuning in to the 2016/2017 season.

“We made the finals... [Read More]
» John Zappia ANDRA Desert Nationals Race Report
Zappia takes lead in ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship

(7-26-2016) BIBRA LAKE, WA – The second leg of the “Northern Swing” was held last weekend at the Alice Springs Desert Nationals held by the Central Australian Drag Racing Association, where Round 2 of the ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship was run over the eighth mile.

The event was a clean sweep for 9 times Champion John Zappia – Top Qualifying and winning the event, while picking up Low ET and Top Speed and resetting the track ET and MPH records.

“I feel like I am living the dream after this weekend” said an elated Zappia, “After a tough month of racing the Zappia Racing team finally got back to our winning ways. This weekend was all about managing horsepower and getting down this regional track, and we have plenty of data to draw on from years of regional track racing – and luckily we got most of our settings right.”

» Erica Enders NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Enders on a season-long high as Sonoma race approaches

(7-25-2016) NEW ORLEANS, LA – Fresh off her most encouraging outing of the year, back-to-back and reigning Pro Stock champion Erica Enders is anxious to get to Northern California for this weekend's Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.

Enders qualified a season-best second on the Denver elimination ladder and logged an elimination round-win before parts failure cost her just enough time to lose her second-round race against Allen Johnson. Nevertheless, the huge uptick in performance has the entire Elite/Mopar Dodge Dart race team feeling better about themselves.

"I think with the gains we made in Denver we can definitely carry those to Sonoma and continue to work on making the car better, making better runs, and me driving awesome," Enders said. "That definitely is the goal in Sonoma: To pick up where we left off in... [Read More]

Coughlin says Pro Stock could hit season records in Sonoma

(7-25-2016) DELAWARE, OH – If weather conditions are agreeable when the NHRA tour arrives at Sonoma Raceway this weekend for the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals, five-time Pro Stock world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. says the record book could have a couple of new entries.

"It really comes down to what Mother Nature deals the Pro Stock cars," Coughlin said. "We typically get very high pressure there barometer-wise. On those cool days, the track is tight and the air is crisp and clean. If we get that this time it's likely we see the modern-day national record fall for Pro Stock, with the new 10,500 rpm and fuel-injection rules coming into play. I'm looking forward to this happening, and maybe we can give it a poke."

Prior to the 2016 season, NHRA mandated several rule changes for Pro Stock, including the switch from carburetion to... [Read More]
