Top Fuel Championship Hopefuls Preparing For Wild Ride As World Title Set To Be Decided At Auto Club NHRA Finals


POMONA, Calif. – It is only fitting that an incredible season in Top Fuel, one loaded with a multitude of standout competitors, is slated for an epic finish at this weekend’s 55th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

While a handful of drivers are still mathematically alive heading into the final race of the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs, the world champion will likely be decided by four star participants: reigning NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world champ Steve Torrence, 2017 Top Fuel champ Brittany Force, longtime veteran Doug Kalitta, who is seeking his first championship, and Steve’s father, Billy, who has come alive in the Countdown with two wins.

S. Torrence currently holds the slight advantage with a 16-point lead over Force in his 11,000-horsepower Capco Contractors dragster. He leads Kalitta by 55 points and his father by 86, knowing full well it is shaping up to be a wild weekend in Pomona to close out the 2019 season.

Funny Car's Robert Hight Embracing Pressure To Perform At Home Track With World Title On The Line At Auto Club NHRA Finals


POMONA, Calif. – Robert Hight has been in this situation before and it’s one that never gets old. The Funny Car standout is competing at his home track, at his sponsor’s race with the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world title on the line, and it’s a moment where Hight has often thrived. With a possible third world title in reach, Hight hopes to again come through in the clutch at the 55th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals, Nov. 14-17 at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

He’s been a near wire-to-wire points leader in his 11,000-horsepower Auto Club of Southern California Chevrolet Camaro SS this year, entering the final race of the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship and 2019 NHRA season with a 46-point lead on Jack Beckman. Two other world title drivers – John Force and Matt Hagan – are also title threats to Hight, but this is a moment he has always reveled in throughout his championship career.

2019 NHRA: Jegs NHRA Sportsnationals Moves To July At National Trail Raceway


GLENDORA, Calif. (October 30, 2019) - One of the most widely known and prestigious weekends on the Sportsman racing calendar, the JEGS NHRA SPORTSnationals, will be back at National Trail Raceway on July 18-19, 2020.

After a three-year hiatus from National Trail Raceway, the race made a return to the track, located just outside of Columbus, Ohio, in 2019 following owner and management changes. The race was previously held at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky. during the hiatus.

"We couldn’t be more excited to have the JEGS SPORTSnationals return to National Trail Raceway," said Jay Livingston, owner of National Trail Raceway.

2019 NHRA: Funny Cars Jack Beckman Focused On Strong Finish Heading To Dodge NHRA Nationals Presented By Pennzoil


LAS VEGAS – The plan for Jack Beckman is to have a chance to race for a NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championship at the final race of the season. But for that to happen, the former Funny Car world champion knows he must perform at the penultimate race of the 2019 season, the Dodge NHRA Nationals Presented By Pennzoil, which takes place Oct. 31-Nov. 3 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Beckman heads to the race second in points, 70 behind leader Robert Hight going into the final two events of the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship. The veteran standout has had his share of big moments in this year’s playoffs, advancing to a pair of finals in his 11,000-horsepower Infinite Hero Founder Dodge SRT Hellcat, but rising to the occasion in Vegas will be imperative if Beckman has any hopes of chasing down Hight to end the year.

“Our goal is to win a championship,” Beckman said. “I think it will be a big mistake for any team to look past Vegas and look toward Pomona just because Pomona is going to offer points-and-a-half. If you stumble first round in Vegas, you’re not going to get those rounds. We can’t look past the next run right now. You can’t afford to give away any points.”

2019 NHRA: NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series World Titles On The Line As Exciting Conclusion Nears At Auto Club NHRA Finals


POMONA, Calif. – With points-and-a-half in play and world championships on the line, fans can count on the most intense racing action of the season as the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series closes out its thrilling 2019 season with the 55th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals, Nov. 14-17 at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

It is the last of six races in the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs and the final event of the 24-race season. It’s a definite must-see conclusion at the birthplace of NHRA drag racing, as title contenders will put it all on the line to seek championship glory and put their stamp on history in the fastest motorsport on the planet.

There will be exciting championship showdowns in Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle, and an increased amount of points in play with the points-and-a-half system. The Auto Club NHRA Finals winners will earn 150 points and can earn up to 191 points at the race, setting the stage plenty of memorable performances.

Steve Torrence (Top Fuel), J.R. Todd (Funny Car), Tanner Gray (Pro Stock) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were last year’s winners of the race that will be televised on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), including live finals coverage starting at 4:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, Nov. 17. All four race winners from 2019 earned world titles as well, something the four winners in 2020 would love to see take place again in Pomona.

2019 NHRA: Pro Stock Points Leader Erica Enders Thriving At The Perfect Time Approaching AAA Texas NHRA Fallnationals


ENNIS, Texas – It’s every racer’s goal to be peaking at the right time when the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship arrives and Erica Enders has been the perfect example of that during the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. After an up-and-down regular season, things have come together well for the two-time Pro Stock champ, who is now the points leader heading to this weekend’s 34th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex.

Enders has been dominant during qualifying, racking up three straight No. 1 qualifiers in her Melling Performance/Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, and a victory in St. Louis has her thinking big. The Texas native knows what a win in Dallas would mean to open the second half of the six-race Countdown to the Championship, too, and Enders is ready to take full advantage.

“It’s really exciting,” said Enders, who has 24 career wins. “I would have never guessed we would be in this position with the start we had, so I’m very pleased with where we’re at. My goal going into Charlotte was to leave with the points lead and the second part of that goal is to never give it back. We’ll do our best to keep it. We’ll go to Dallas and it’s a track that’s been good to us in the past. Our goal is to leave with another cowboy hat and belt buckle.”
