Pro Modified Racing Association Countdown to the 2014 Championship: Kalso Motorsports – Fourth Place

(10-20-2014) CAYUGA, ON – Driving the Kalso Motorsports 1971 Barracuda Pro Modified in 2014, Jason Kalso recorded his best season finish to date in Pro Modified Racing Association competition, taking fourth in the championship points race.

After a pair of first-round finishes early in the season, Kalso, from Clarkston, Michigan, motored to semi-finalist positions later in the season. The Cuda is capable of running in the low six-second range with speeds of about 230 mph down the quarter-mile.

The G-Force Race Cars product is powered by 521-cubic inch BAE Hemi, supercharged, with a DMPE fuel system and Kobelco 14-71 M5 supercharger. A Lenco three-speed sits behind the engine.

NHRA Funny Car world champion Raymond Beadle: 1943-2014

(10-20-2014) DALLAS, TX – Raymond Beadle, a three-time NHRA Funny Car world champion and driver of the famed Blue Max Funny Car, died Oct. 20 at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. He was 70.

Beadle, who got his start in NHRA in the early 1970s driving for team owners Prentiss Cunningham, Mike Burkhart and Don Schumacher, started his own team with Harry Schmidt in 1974 and the duo raced to 13 NHRA national event victories in 28 final round appearances and won world championship titles in 1979, 1980 and 1981. He was a two-time winner of the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, claiming victories at the world’s most prestigious drag race in 1975 and 1981.

The Spur, Texas, native’s first world championship title in ’79 ended Don “The Snake” Prudhomme’s four-year reign of Funny Car dominance. Beadle is one of only four... [Read More]

Quick 32 Sportsman Series Countdown to the 2014 Championship: Glen Vardy and his Top Dragster – Fourth Place

(10-20-2014) CAYUGA, ON – After starting in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series in 2012, Glen Vardy and his Top Dragster entry were a force to reckon with this past season.

For the first race of 2014 Vardy qualified number two at the Grand Bend Motorplex and went all the way to take the event, beating Toronto’s Tony Positano in the Top Dragster final and eliminating Top Sportsman driver and 2013 series champion Bill Wilson in the event final.

The team always qualified well in the field with a car capable of passes just over the six-second mark at speeds of over 230 mph.

A year unlike any other for Jason Harris, Pro Nitrous champ

(10-18-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – The majority of drag racers feel lucky to win one or two races a year, sometimes even just one or two races in a career. This year, PDRA Pro Nitrous driver, Jason Harris, did the unthinkable. He went to every final of the PDRA inaugural tour, winning six of eight races. Needless to say, this feat crowned him the first PDRA Pro Nitrous World Champion.

“I never looked at the points all year,” the North Carolina native confessed. “We won the first one and, I thought, okay, we won one. It wasn’t that big of a deal. We won the second one, okay well I got lucky. We won a third one and I thought maybe I got a lot of luck on my side. By about the fourth one I began to think there was a good chance I could win the World Championship, but I didn’t want to think about. If you start looking at points and paying... [Read More]

(10-16-2014) LAS VEGAS, NV – Before his first season as an NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel driver, Richie Crampton put together a list of goals. Crampton was not afraid to aim high and at the forefront of those goals was winning the Auto Club of Southern California Road to the Future Award, which annually recognizes the season’s top rookie performer.

The big hopes have brought out the best in Crampton, as he has already posted two victories, including winning the prestigious Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals and qualified for the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship in his 10,000-horsepower GEICO/Lucas Oil dragster.

But Crampton, along with the rest of the rookie candidates who are eligible for the coveted award, is hoping to make a late push... [Read More]

Bubba Stanton Pro Extreme king once again

(10-16-2014) PITTSBORO, NC – While the name Bubba Stanton has become nearly synonymous with the Pro Extreme class it’s been eight long years since his reign as World Champion. But now Bubba is back on top as the newly crowned 2014 PDRA Pro Extreme World Champion. His reign really began in April of this year at the PDRA opener in Rockingham, N.C. There Stanton took a brand new, untested car and engine program to the winner’s circle and the points lead. Stanton never relinquished his lead, winning again at the second and sixth stops on the inaugural tour, and racking up a fourth final at Memphis Drags in May. Add to that a handful of number one qualifiers and top speed awards and it was Stanton’s year from start to finish.

“It feels pretty good to be Champ,” Stanton said with the same calm and collected manner that he takes to the strip. “It’s a tough series,... [Read More]

» Shane Tucker Update
Tucker regroups for better battle against his Yankee counterparts

(10-15-2014) DALLAS, TX – Popular driver Shane Tucker wants to experience sustained success at the highest level of drag racing -- the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series -- and he has a firm plan in place to reach that goal.

The 29-year-old native of Gold Coast, Australia, whet his appetite in 2014 with a part-time slate of 10 Pro Stock races, highlighted by a semifinal finish in Chicago. Racking up thousands of frequent-flyer miles along the way, Tucker's toe dip in the shark tank that is the factory hot rod class made him realize very quickly that NHRA drag racing is serious business.

"It had been a dream of our family for a long time to come to the United States and race against the best drivers in the world," said Tucker, an accomplished driver in Australia. "A few years ago we thought it was going to happen but... [Read More]
