Pro Stock Rookie Tanner Gray Thinking Big At Dodge NHRA Nationals After Impressive Start To The Countdown To The Championship

Pro Stock Rookie Tanner Gray Thinking Big At Dodge NHRA Nationals After Impressive Start To The Countdown To The Championship


In terms of a blueprint for starting a critical juncture of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season well, Tanner Gray came about as close as possible to a perfect one at the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship opener in Charlotte.

The rookie phenom continued to roll at his first playoff race, qualifying No. 1 and winning his fifth race of the season heading to this weekend’s 33rd annual Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway. It has Gray in a prime position to contend for a world championship, but the 18-year-old rising star is well aware that plenty of work remains if that is to be a possibility.

“It is really important to stay focused,” Gray said. “This is what we race for all year, the opportunity to race in the Countdown and ultimately to contend and win the championship. My team is in the driver’s seat. They have a great handle on the car, our dynamic as a team is on point and we are all having a lot of fun. Coming off of a win in Charlotte increases the focus and proves that our team has what it takes to be champions. There is a lot of racing left and this class is so competitive, we have to continue to collect round wins to make this championship possible.”

After Slow Countdown Start Funny Car Veteran Jack Beckman Faces Pivotal Weekend At Dodge NHRA Nationals

After Slow Countdown Start Funny Car Veteran Jack Beckman Faces Pivotal Weekend At Dodge NHRA Nationals


MOHNTON, Pa. – A first-round loss to open the NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship hasn’t changed Jack Beckman’s mindset heading into this weekend’s 33rd annual Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway.

The sense of urgency and goal of winning is always the same for the former Funny Car world champion. But the veteran also knows he can’t have a repeat of what happened in Charlotte if he wants to remain in contention for another NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world title in his 10,000-horsepower Infinite Hero Foundation Dodge Charger R/T.

“We were on our first drive and we fumbled the ball,” said Beckman, who fell to seventh in Funny Car points. “We can’t do what we just did (in Charlotte). We can’t afford to do that anymore. We have to be realistic about this. It takes 12-15 round wins (in the Countdown) to be a bonafide championship contender. For us, that means on average we have to make the finals every race. It’s a pretty tall order, however, if we go win at Maple Grove, and (Robert) Hight and (Ron) Capps go out early, we’re back in it. We just can’t have them put any more daylight on us.”

NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series Jonathan Gray Taking Advantage Of Opportunities Approaching NHRA Carolina Nationals

NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series Jonathan Gray Taking Advantage Of Opportunities Approaching NHRA Carolina Nationals


CONCORD, N.C. – Jonathan Gray wasn’t expecting a call from one of the biggest names in NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series history earlier this season. But when Rickie Smith called and asked Gray to drive, he jumped at the opportunity.

With back surgery limiting the three-time NHRA Pro Mod world champ earlier this season, Smith asked Gray to drive his nitrous-powered IDG Chevrolet Camaro until he returned. When Smith came back, Gray stayed with the longtime standout, driving another car, with Smith making the tuning calls. The results have been impressive, as Gray is eighth in points despite missing one race heading into this weekend’s NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway.

From not even expecting to race this year to getting to drive under Smith, Gray has been thrilled with what has transpired during his NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series season.

“I’m very grateful that (Smith) called and asked me to drive and I’ve really enjoyed it,” Gray said. “I’ve learned a lot, not just about racing but about life and how he’s been able to race for four decades. He’s a hardcore racer and the most intense person I’ve ever been around. I don’t know anybody out there who can get a car down the track any better than he can. Every time he brings the car to the starting line, you know it’s going to run fast for the conditions.”
