» Drew Skillman Feature Story
Skillman takes Brainerd win momentum into Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals

(8-30-2016) DETROIT, MI – Drew Skillman inched the Chevrolet Camaro SS toward the staging line without hesitation just as he had done dozens of times the previous two years in Super Stock and Stock Eliminator. This time, though, it was two-time National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Pro Stock champion Jason Line’s car lined up parallel to Skillman.

There wasn’t time to be nervous and barely enough time for a prayer. In 6.5 seconds, the Pro Stock final of the 2015 season opener was finished, and a new chapter in Skillman’s racing career had begun with a blur.

The Indiana native recounts with a hearty laugh the experience of being the first driver in 41 years to reach the finals in his Pro Stock debut at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California.

“I thought, ‘I’ve got this. I’m fixin’ to wear... [Read More]

Enders fulfilled lifelong dream with 2015 U.S. Nationals title

(8-30-2016) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Two-time Pro Stock champion Erica Enders was drained after the U.S. Nationals in 2015, and understandably so, because she put everything she had into the race. Having won it, fulfilling a lifelong dream, Enders was physically and mentally exhausted.

Enders, driver of the Elite Motorsports/Mopar Dodge, returns as defending champion of the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, held this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

"That was probably, aside from the championship, the coolest racing accomplishment that I've ever had," Enders said. "To try to accomplish something for 25 years and to finally get it done was one of those culmination moments.

"I think my crew chief, Rick Jones, put it in perspective. We have to be tough out here, especially being a girl, and it's... [Read More]

Scruggs claims $10,000 Outlaw Pro Mod paycheck at Street Car Super Nationals III

(8-29-2016) MADISON, IL – Jason Scruggs of Saltillo, Mississippi, scored a $10,000 payday by defeating Brandon Lewis of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, in the final round of Flying A Outlaw Pro Mod eliminations. To reach the final, Scruggs defeated Jon Stouffer in the first round of eliminations, then trailered Texan Frankie Taylor in the semi-final.

Thomas Eddie Rogers of Berryville, Arkansas, took home $7,500 after winning the Precision Turbo Pro Nitrous vs. Pro Boost final over Canadian Jim Bell. Rogers defeated Brazil’s Sidnei Frigo in the first round of eliminations, then won the second round after opponent Terry Barkley crashed. Rogers ran a single in the semi-final to meet Bell in the final. Surprise entry Justin “Big Chief” Shearer of Street Outlaws TV show fame was eliminated in the second round by Bell.

Johnson eyeing top spot at U.S. Nationals

(8-29-2016) GREENEVILLE, TN – The 62nd annual U.S. Nationals is the most prestigious race on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour, and Marathon Petroleum Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson is looking to ink his name in the history books with a win this weekend.

The Adam Hornberger-lead team has undeniably stepped up their game in their engine program when Johnson qualified No. 3 at the last event in Brainerd, Minnesota – the highest qualifying position of their 2016 season. The upswing in performance has come at the right time as they head into the last event of the regular season.

“Having a fast car in Brainerd really helped build confidence going into Indy,” Johnson said. “We’re going to test this week in St. Louis and we’re going in a good direction with the motor so I think we’ll be even a little bit better in Indy.”

Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals marks five year anniversary of Pro Stock debut for McGaha

(8-29-2016) ODESSA, TX – The Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals is not only the biggest race of the year but it also will be the fifth year anniversary since Harlow Sammons driver Chris McGaha let out the clutch for the first time in Pro Stock competition. Five years later, McGaha has solidified himself in the class as a true competitor and is now a force to be reckoned doing double-duty as a driver and tuner of his own operation.

Chris McGaha and his Harlow Sammons team made their Pro Stock debut at the U.S. Nationals in 2011 where he qualified No. 11. Although no round wins came to fruition that day, it was just a few races later that McGaha got his first round win at the AAA Fall Nationals in Dallas, Texas.

“Going back to Indy five years later definitely brings up a lot of memories of... [Read More]

In addition to steering her Mopar Performance Dodge Dart Pro Stocker, Enders will also compete in a Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak vehicle in the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology Factory Stock Showdown at Indy. She’ll take the wheel of a supercharged 354 cubic-inch Gen III HEMI engine-powered Mopar Dodge Drag Pak prepped by the Joe Welch Racing organization and outfitted in official Dodge and Mopar graphics.
