2017 NHRA: Whitely Wins Career First NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series Victory At Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals


GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Steven Whitely raced to his first NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series event win at their portion of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals Sunday at Gainesville Raceway. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing was presented by Jerry Bickel Race Cars, Inc. and is the first of 12 races on the season.

Whitley in his ’14 Cadillac faced series veteran Mike Castellana in the final round. Whitely was able to post a winning time of 5.791 seconds at 253.52 mph to the trailing run of 10.192 at 87.94 of Castellana.

The Whiteley family was able to celebrate the victory in style as his mother Annie won the Top Alcohol Funny Car event on Sunday as well.

"It doesn’t get any better than this. It’s such a blessing being in the winner’s circle with my mom," Whitely said. "I can’t express how thankful I am. Not only for J&A Service on a couple of accounts. They sponsor this series, but it’s more intimate than that, at least for me. You know, J&A Service, that’s Jim and Annie Whiteley, that’s Mom and Dad. These guys don’t understand how much more this hits me. I just let the clutch petal go. My guys make this happen. I cannot thank them enough."

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Steven Jackson held on for his first career No. 1 qualifying position in the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing, presented by Jerry Bickel Race Cars, Inc., is the first of 12 events on the season. His qualifying pass of 5.781-seconds at 251.58 mph on Friday secured the No. 1 position.

Jackson, in his Jerry Bickel Race Cars built Camaro, was unable to parlay the No. 1 qualifying position into success in eliminations as he was defeated by Eric Latino in the first round. Latino posted a winning time of 5.779 at 256.45 to Jackson’s losing run of 6.664 at 146.30. Latino will face Troy Coughlin in his JEGS.com Chevy Corvette when eliminations continue on Sunday.

Also in eliminations, Rickie Smith the defending event winner and 2016 NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series champion was ousted by Michael Biehle in his ’13 Ford Mustang. Smith’s IDG ’15 Camaro lost traction early in the run and Biehle was able to get the round win.

Top Fuel Standout Brittany Force Hoping History Repeats Itself At 48th Annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornational

Top Fuel Standout Brittany Force Hoping History Repeats Itself At 48th Annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornational


Brittany Force’s first career Top Fuel win came a year ago at the AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, a NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series win preceded by a runner-up finish the race before in Phoenix.

Coming off a second straight final round in Phoenix in 2017, Force wouldn’t mind history repeating itself one more time in her 10,000-horsepower Monster Energy dragster at the AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, March 16-19 at Gainesville Raceway.

“That’s what we’re hoping for, that’s what we’re going for,” said Force, who finished sixth in points a year ago. “We’re still looking for our first win of the season, and we’d love to repeat last year and bring home that first win at the Gatornationals. Going to the final round in Phoenix shows how close we are. We’re in a different place than where we started last year. We didn’t come into this year still looking for that first win. We’ve already done it, and we know we can do it again. It’s a whole different attitude going into this season.”

Robert Hight (Funny Car), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were also last year’s winners of the event that will be televised on FOX Sports 1, including live finals coverage on Sunday at 1 p.m. (ET). The NHRA’s traditional East Coast opener is the third race in the 2017 season and was where Force’s Top Fuel career turned a major corner a year ago.

She posted seven final round appearances before finally breaking through in Gainesville, but that win opened the door for much more success. Force won two races later in Charlotte and then posted a third win in Brainerd en route to the best season in her young Top Fuel career. Force, the daughter of Funny Car icon John Force, recalled the boost the first career win in Gainesville provided and how it continues to push her.
