» Melanie Salemi Motorsports Successful In 2016 Pre-Season Testing
New technology brings new smiles to Melanie Salemi Motorsports

(2-10-2016) BUFFALO, NY – The Melanie Salemi Motorsports team is happy with recent on track results utilizing Fueltech EFI FT500 engine management system and Atomizer Fuel Injectors. During a test session/race event in Bradenton, Florida we made several runs in the 3.80's with the Melanie Salemi driven G-Force Race Cars built '68 Firebird and worked out what it takes to have an EFI system on a supercharged Pro Mod. The FT500 is a complete management system controlling all of the tuning functions of the engine as well as shifting the car. "We made a total of 12 runs and it worked flawlessly on all of them. We couldn't be more happy with these results," stated Jon Salemi.

Melanie Salemi Motorsports is pleased to announce Big Sky Motorsports as our newest marketing partner for the 2016 season. Big Sky Motorsports is based in Bozeman... [Read More]
» Team Chevy Racing News: Camaro SS Pro Stock - A New Era Begins
Camaro SS Pro Stock - A new era begins

(2-10-2016) DETROIT, MI – Not many things surprise National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Pro Stock veteran Greg Anderson. But something definitely was amiss last month when the Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro SS rolled to the stage beams for the first time during testing in Bradenton, Florida.

“I said to myself, ‘Did they move the ‘Christmas Tree’ back 20 feet at the track? Is somebody playing a joke on me?’ Then it hit me that I wasn’t looking around the hood scoop.’’

Removal of the iconic hood scoop on the Pro Stock is among multiple rule changes instituted by NHRA officials for the 2016 NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series season, which begins this weekend with the Circle K NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California.

Other key changes to the rules package include electronically-controlled throttle... [Read More]

O'Rourke wins Westernationals

(2-9-2016) JOYNER, QLD – Ex-pat West Australian Grant O’Rourke tasted victory in his home-land of Perth on the weekend, taking out the Pro Slammer victory at the 45th Westernationals.

The now Brisbane resident had to beat champion leader John Zappia in the final round of what was a tough weekend of racing, which also included the semi-final and final of the rained-out Nitro Slam from December during qualifying for the weekend’s event.

“It really does feel great to take out the Pro Slammer victory in our home town of Perth, and at none other than the 35th Westernationals,” said O’Rourke.

“This is a special victory, and one that comes after a hard-fought weekend for the entire O’Rourke Motorsport team. It is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our entire crew, and I can’t thank them enough for all of their efforts.”

Jeg Coughlin Jr. returns to Pro Stock as an automatic title contender

(2-9-2016) POMONA, CA – With six world championships and 76 national event titles on his résumé, Jeg Coughlin Jr. returns to full-time competition this weekend at the 56th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals as a bona fide challenger for the Pro Stock trophy at the season-opening race.

While it's true Coughlin only raced three Pro Stock events in 2015 -- highlighted by a runner-up finish in Seattle -- he remained active in the sport, scoring his first national event "double" with wins in Super Gas and Stock at the JEGS NHRA Northern SPORTSnationals in Columbus, Ohio.

This year, Coughlin will race a brand-new Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar/JEGS.com Dart GT out of the powerful Elite Motorsports camp as a factory Dodge teammate to reigning two-time world champion Erica Enders. They will be joined in the Elite pit by... [Read More]

» EPA Seeks To Prohibit Conversion Of Vehicles Into Racecars
EPA seeks to prohibit conversion of vehicles into racecars; SEMA to oppose action as threat to modified racecars and parts suppliers

(2-8-2016) WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a regulation to prohibit conversion of vehicles originally designed for on-road use into racecars. The regulation would also make the sale of certain products for use on such vehicles illegal. The proposed regulation was contained within a non-related proposed regulation entitled “Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles—Phase 2.”

The regulation would impact all vehicle types, including the sports cars, sedans and hatch-backs commonly converted strictly for use at the track. While the Clean Air Act prohibits certain modifications to motor vehicles, it is clear that vehicles built or modified for racing, and not used on... [Read More]

Allen Johnson wraps up testing with positive mindset for Pomona

(2-8-2016) GREENEVILLE, TN – This week marks the beginning of the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. The first of 24 events will bring competitors back to Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. With numerous changes to make to his Pro Stock car in the off season, Allen Johnson is ready to take what he learned from testing in Bradenton, Florida and translate it to the track in Pomona.

“We started out very very conservative in testing,” said Johnson. “Our team worked our way through the process and we’re just trying to learn this new EFI. We had to make a few bad moves to learn that they were bad moves.”

The Marathon Petroleum Corporation/J&J Racing Dodge Dart showed progress throughout their test sessions in Bradenton and Johnson left testing energized for the season opening race in Pomona.

Statement from Larry Morgan and Larry Morgan Racing

(2-8-2016) NEWARK, OH – The following is a statement from NHRA Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan on the state of his Larry Morgan Racing team for the 2016 season:

We are currently involved in securing additional sponsorship so we can continue our efforts in being a viable contender in Pro Stock. We were notified Feb. 3 by our 2015 major sponsor that they would not be able to support us like they had previously, so we have had to plan a different strategy at LMR for 2016.

Along with securing additional sponsorship for our race team, our other objective is to concentrate on our custom CNC machine shop.

I have not missed a Pomona race since 1984 and definitely want to continue that streak. We went to three finals last year and won two races, and I believe, "It's not the size of the man in the fight, it's the size of the... [Read More]
» John Zappia 400 Thunder Home Group WA Westernationals Race Report
Zappia sets Australian Pro Slammer National Record – 5.683

(2-8-2016) BIBRA LAKE, WA – The Home Group WA 45th Westernationals were run this weekend at the Perth Motorplex under the IHRA sanctioned 400 Thunder Australian Professional Drag Racing Series and John Zappia stamped his authority in the Pro Slammer class by re-setting the Australian National Record at 5.683, getting to the final, and maintaining his lead in the series.

Qualifying on Friday night between thirteen teams saw Zappia Top Qualify with an off the trailer 5.71 @ 252.96mph in his Fuchs HQ Monaro, from Mark Belleri on 5.84 in the Holden Trade Club Monaro, and Grant O’Rourke 5.89 in the O’Rourke Motorsport Camaro. Bump spot for the field was a modest 6.217 as the top three teams seemed to be two and three tenths quicker than the rest of the field.

“The Fuchs Monaro ran well in that first round,” said the champ Zappia,... [Read More]

Pro Slammer king John Zappia sets new National Record before being dethroned

(2-6-2016) KWINANA BEACH, WA – The Pro Slammer king, John Zappia may have set a new national record at the Perth Motorplex last night, but Grant O’Rourke was ultimately crowned the Home Group WA Westernationals champion.

Zappia had earlier made 400 Thunder history by posting the quickest ever pass in class history, a stunning – a 5.683-second run at 408.39km/h from his Fuchs Holden Monaro.

But the hometown hero’s run at the Westernationals title came to a sudden halt on the startline of the final round with a broken valve, leaving O’Rourke unchallenged in taking a popular win with a 5.942-sec/394.94km/h pass.

“Zappia’s the king of the kids, so any time you face him in the final you have to be prepared,” O’Rourke said.

“It’s just awesome to take out the Westernationals.... [Read More]

(2-5-2016) KWINANA BEACH, WA – Local underdog Pino Priolo finally broke through for his maiden 400 Thunder Pro Slammer victory at last night’s rescheduled Home Group WA Nitro Slam eliminations at the Perth Motorplex.

Priolo beat Sydney’s Mark Belleri with a 6.023-second/385.72km/h run from the Watson’s Express Transport ’37 Chevy Pro Slammer to his rival’s 6.078 in the Holden Trade Club Monaro.

In the rescheduled Top Bike eliminations, Perth’s Mark Drew continued his reign on his nitro-fuelled Harley Davison V-Twin by defeating the turbocharged Kawasaki of Greg Durack in the Nitro Slam final.

“I’ve been runner-up twice before, so [tonight] was third time lucky!” Priolo said.

“I had a really good feeling today on my way to the track, and I knew I just had to race hard.

Aruba Airport excited to partner with Team Aruba Racing

(2-5-2016) ORANJESTAD, AB – Few drag racing teams truly fit the description of international racers. Only select number of teams compete professionally on an international level, and of those that do, few follow an entire circuit, competing for World Championships. The fact that the Pro Stock team from Aruba has done so for 13 years puts Team Aruba Drag Racing in a league all their own. Once more, Team Aruba is stepping up their game, this time by partnering with Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (www.airportaruba.com).

Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) is the sole international airport for the ‘One Happy Island’ and is, therefore the first impression international travelers and vacationers receive of Aruba. The airport has often been commended for their welcoming efforts, winning the Highly... [Read More]
