Record-setting Black Diamond Motorsports Team looking to finish strong in 2014

(7-23-2014) NORWALK, OH – With one win, two finals and a new world record in the books, the Black Diamond Motorsports duo of John DeFlorian and Kevin Bealko are looking to finish the 2014 season strong with only three races remaining. Currently, DeFlorian sits second in the standings behind two-time national event winner Cary Goforth, while Bealko is fifth.

Earlier this year, DeFlorian obliterated the IHRA speed record in Mountain Motor Pro Stock, a record which stood at 223.95 mph since 2008. The speed was topped on two separate occasions by the Arnold, Mo. native, ending with an outstanding 226.70 mph pass in the final. The run not only gave the driver of the BDMS Camaro the record, but it also helped propel DeFlorian to his first victory in IHRA competition at the San Antonio Nationals, as he bested Cary Goforth...

» NHRA Sonoma Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Preview
Pro Stock rookie Jonathan Gray has Countdown on the mind heading to NHRA Sonoma Nationals

(7-23-2014) SONOMA, CA – Jonathan Gray may be a rookie on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series circuit but the Pro Stock driver is also well aware of the situation he is in heading into the second race of the three-week NHRA Western Swing.

By every account Gray has had a banner rookie season, advancing to two final rounds. He is currently 10th in points despite not making his first start until the third race of the 2014 season, but longtime Pro Stock force Greg Anderson trails Gray by just 23 points.

Gray must either hold off the four-time world champion or continue his own climb up the standings to advance to the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship in his first season, which makes this weekend’s 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway that much more important.

IHRA's Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series debuts brand new, modernized website

Ready for Sonoma, Morgan leaves dirty laundry in Denver

(7-23-2014) NEWARK, OH – Lucas Oil Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan left his dirty laundry in Denver -- literally.

The veteran driver headed back to his shop in Newark, Ohio, with cylinder heads in his suitcase instead. He wanted to do some more work to prepare for the NHRA Sonoma Nationals this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

"I'm leaving my dirty clothes in Denver," Morgan said. "We took them out of the suitcase so we could put some cylinder heads in. I was welding all day Monday, fixing heads."

The extra work was needed because Sonoma is at sea level, as compared to Denver's mile-high altitude. That's important because the thin Denver air makes engine builders like Morgan fret, as engines groan without the oxygen they have at sea level.

Morgan, in fact, had a better engine on his hauler in Denver but... [Read More]
» Greg Anderson NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
Anderson returns to capitalize on personal history in Sonoma

(7-23-2014) MOORESVILLE, NC – Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson has a reason to be confident heading into this weekend's 27th annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Just a handful of days ago in Denver, the driver of the white Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro powered to his best qualifying performance of the season, and on raceday he was up to the task as he once again proved his driving capabilities and left his competitors at the starting line. Add to his recent success behind the wheel the fact that he is the winningest Pro Stock driver at Sonoma Raceway and it seems apparent that all of the key ingredients are present.

"We're very, very much looking forward to getting to Sonoma," said Anderson. The Mooresville, N.C.-based driver has won a record four times at Sonoma Raceway, most recently in 2011, and in 2012 he came up just a tad shy... [Read More]
» Jeg Coughlin Jr. NHRA Sonoma Nationals Preview
From a mile high to sea level, reigning champ Coughlin readies for Sonoma

(7-22-2014) DELAWARE, OH – The annual transition from the mile-high altitude of Denver to Sonoma Valley's oxygen-rich, sea-level climes in just four days remains one of the biggest challenges in professional drag racing. But five-time and reigning world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. and his JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge Dart consider the challenge the perfect time to shine.

"Sonoma is a lot like Denver as far as looking out your window and seeing some of the most beautiful terrain in the country," Coughlin said. "The main difference is that Sonoma is 5,000 feet closer to sea level, so our Dodge Dart will be chomping at the bit to unleash some horsepower.

"After feeling that struggle we all have in the thin air up there in Denver, I can't wait to let the clutch out that first run in Sonoma. Most likely, we'll post... [Read More]
» Team JEGS Buckeye Fuel Wars Race Report
Meghan, Kelly Coughlin lead family's race weekend at National Trail

(7-22-2014) HEBRON, OH – Although they were competing for the first time in their respective categories, sisters Meghan and Kelly Coughlin turned in the most memorable performances of the Buckeye Fuel Wars NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at National Trail Raceway.

Making her Sportsman debut in her uncle Jeg Coughlin Jr.'s Chevy II wagon in the Super Street category, Meghan got things started Friday night in the special Moser Shootout, which included competitors from all of the Super classes. The 26-year-old, who last raced nearly two decades ago in a Jr. Dragster, managed to reach the semifinals before rain washed out the remainder of the action. She and the other semifinalists eventually decided to split the pot four ways.

"Just getting a single round-win was my goal for the weekend, honestly," Meghan... [Read More]

Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals most iconic moments: Muldowney triumphant in 1982 Top Fuel final

(7-22-2014) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – On Sept. 6, 1982 at Indianapolis, Shirley Muldowney captured the greatest victory of her outstanding Top Fuel career.

Already a two-time Top Fuel world champion and winner of 15 national events, Muldowney’s history-making victory at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in 1982 against her former companion and crew chief Connie Kalitta was by far the most satisfying win of her career.

It was the first win for a female at Indy, and it would be Muldowney’s only victory at the world’s most prestigious drag race. The win propelled her on to a third world championship title by season’s end.

At the time, Muldowney called the win, “the race of my life.”

During the weeks leading up to the running of the Chevrolet Performance... [Read More]

Flamholc wins at Malmö, clinches Pro Extreme series title

(7-22-2014) MALMÖ, SE – Another great weekend is over, and we are looking forward to the next one!

Four wins in four races so far this season for us! We qualified as number one with a 3.84s 207.5mph (new European speed record for an outlaw car) and ended up winning the race after three really strong runs on Sunday. This means that we won the Pro Extreme series with one race to go!

I'm so happy for the guys in my team, they work hard, and never see a problem, just opportunities!

I'm so fortunate to have a family that understands and supports me, when I'm out racing! I'm so thankful to the companies that support us! Please support them! You are all apart of our success!!!!


But the season is not over yet! Tomorrow evening (Wednesday) we are heading up to Tierp for one of... [Read More]
» Roxboro Motorsports Park B.A.D. Boys July Race Results
Mother Nature puts a halt to the action at Roxboro Motorsports Park Saturday

(7-22-2014) TIMBERLAKE, NC – After battling the rain three times Saturday at Roxboro a fourth storm set in and put a stop to the event. The semifinalists were in the staging lanes when skies opened up.

The staff worked vigorously all day to keep the track well prepped. Track co-owner Jr. Ward commented, "We fought it all day. We tried as hard as we could. Our track crew come and work on this place during the week to get it ready. We live two hours away so it’s hard for us to come here. I come here on Thursday night to get everything ready and they are already here working. I couldn’t do it without these guys and their hard work."

There were thirteen Pro Modified doorslammers on the grounds at the start of the day. For one of the competitors his day didn’t even get started. When Darrell Williams and crew fired... [Read More]
» Vincent Nobile Mile-High NHRA Nationals Final Race Report
After tough Denver outing, Nobile already thinking ahead

(7-22-2014) MORRISON, CO – Vincent Nobile’s plans to sweep all three races of the annual NHRA Western Swing through Denver, Sonoma, and Seattle will have to wait another year after the NAPA/Mountain View Tire & Auto Service team dropped a second round battle against KB Racing teammate Jason Line in last weekend’s Mopar Mile-High Nationals in Denver.

Racing in Denver’s notoriously thin air, Nobile and his Nick Mitsos-led team struggled a bit in qualifying and landed in the No. 8 spot, which led to a tough round one battle against No. 9 qualifier Jonathan Gray. Nobile managed to win that battle when Gray fouled out by a thousandth of a second but the Mountain View Camaro wasn’t able to get past low qualifier Line’s Summit Chevy in round two. Nobile was first off the starting line but soon surrendered the lead and dropped a 6.93 to... [Read More]
» Allen Johnson Mile-High NHRA Nationals Final Race Report
Johnson rules event, seizes third straight win

(7-21-2014) MORRISON, CO – In the game of thrones to decide the king of Thunder Mountain, Team Mopar driver Allen Johnson once again proved that he is the undisputed ruler at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. The “Magneti Marelli Quality Auto Parts Offered by Mopar” Dodge Dart NHRA Pro Stock driver claimed his sixth event crown in eight years at Bandimere Speedway, located in the picturesque Rocky Mountains, and his third straight win at sponsor Mopar’s headline event, defeating J&J Racing teammate Jeg Coughlin Jr. in an all-Mopar final fight. The triumph is the 24th of Johnson’s career and fourth of the season, and comes during Mopar’s marking of the 50th anniversary of the 426 HEMI engine, as well as the celebration of 100 years of the Dodge brand.

Johnson also continued another amazing streak, advancing to the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals... [Read More]
» Greg Anderson Mile-High NHRA Nationals Final Race Report
Anderson encouraged as a corner is turned in Denver

(7-21-2014) MORRISON, CO – Greg Anderson had a weekend to remember at Denver's Bandimere Speedway at the 35th annual Mile-High NHRA Nationals. Anderson didn't walk away with the win at the picturesque facility, but the 74-time NHRA national event victor did leave the event with a fresh infusion of optimism following a collection of runs that marked his best performance of the season to date. He also gained more valuable points towards breaking into the top 10 in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series standings.

During qualifying, Anderson was a top player as he raced to a start from the No. 5 position based on a 6.937-second run at 198.44 mph that was surrounded by a collection of pleasing passes down the water-cooled quarter-mile dragstrip. It was his best start of the season and came with lane choice in a first-round meeting with Matt Hartford on... [Read More]

Gray Motorsports takes first bite out of tough Western Swing at Mile-High Nationals

(7-21-2014) MORRISON, CO – With one race down in the strenuous Western Swing and two to go before the three-in-a-row tour out West is in the books, the Gray Motorsports Pro Stock team is just warming up. The 35th annual Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway brought warm temperatures and bright sunshine to an event held at high altitude, providing a unique puzzle that teams face only once a year. Raceday was an early ending affair for Jonathan Gray and Shane Gray, while Charter Communications Chevrolet Camaro driver Dave Connolly led the Gray Motorsports team to the semifinals. All three of the Mooresville, N.C.-based drivers remain in NHRA's Mello Yello Drag Racing Series top 10 as the tour returns to sea level next week at Sonoma Raceway in California.

» Jason Line Mile-High NHRA Nationals Final Race Report
Line elevated by overall performance at Mile-High Nationals

(7-20-2014) MORRISON, CO – The 35th annual Mile-High NHRA Nationals moved to the top of favored races this weekend for Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Jason Line. The Mooresville, N.C.-based driver was in command of a very powerful car as he put his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro on the pole and then blasted through eliminations en route to a semifinals finish. The ending to the weekend was a bit earlier than he had hoped, but Line could hardly hang his head over the powerful performance at one of the most challenging racetracks on NHRA's Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour.

Line had a fearsome car in qualifying and dropped a bomb in the final session as he unseated Allen Johnson to take over the No. 1 qualifying position with a deafening 6.924-second run at 198.70 mph. The feat was particularly notable as Line was competing in territory... [Read More]
