2017 NHRA: Goodyear, NHRA at Brainerd


NHRA drag racers took turns tossing world records aside as though they were paper plates at a barbecue dinner party during the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway. Then four drivers racing on Goodyear tires won their categories at the end of the weekend.

Leah Pritchett (in Top Fuel), Alexis DeJoria (Funny Car), Tanner Gray (Pro Stock) and Justin Ashley (Top Alcohol Dragster) all won with Goodyear tires.

Two-Time Pro Stock Motorcylce World Champ Matt Smith Expects To Keep Torrid Pace At Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals


BRAINERD, Minn. – After not qualifying five races ago, two-time Pro Stock Motorcycle world champion Matt Smith has come remarkably far in a short time. The only thing left for him is to break through for his first victory of the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season.

Since the low point of the season – not qualifying in Englishtown – Smith has been impressive on his Victory Magnum, advancing to three final rounds and grabbing two No. 1 qualifiers in the past four races. Smith appears to be setting up for a spectacular finish to his 2017 season and plans on continuing his red-hot pace at this weekend’s Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway, where he is also a two-time winner.

Pro Stock Points Leader Bo Butner Looking To Build On Standout Season At Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals


BRAINERD, Minn. - It has already been a banner NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season for Bo Butner. The Pro Stock driver has enjoyed a breakout year with three wins and the points lead heading to this weekend’s Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway.

But as the spotlight grows and the season closes in on its most important stretch, Butner has no plans of slowing down. He’s fighting off a slew of worthy challengers in his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevrolet Camaro, including KB Racing teammates Jason Line and Greg Anderson, but Butner believes his team is living up to the potential he saw a year ago.

"We’ve been very blessed," Butner said. "It’s really the same routine and the same team that we had last year, I just didn’t drive as good last year. I’m not shocked by how the car is running. We still do this to have fun and I’m lucky enough to be with a team where it is their living. That’s a good spot and the perfect storm for me."

After Early Exit Popular Funny Car Driver Tim Wilkerson Ready To Get Back On Track At Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals


BRAINERD, Minn. - In a matter of back-to-back races veteran driver Tim Wilkerson experienced just how fine a line there is between success and disappointment in the loaded NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Funny Car class.

Wilkerson went to his second final of the year in Sonoma, seemingly building strong momentum in his 10,000-horsepower Levi, Ray & Shoup Ford Shelby Mustang. But Wilkerson suffered a hard-luck, first-round loss a week later in Seattle to finish the Western Swing. It wasn’t an ideal ending to the rigorous stretch, but heading to this weekend’s Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway, Wilkerson is well aware of the competition level in the class.

Top Fuel Veteran Terry Mcmillen Has Eyes On Countdown To The Championship Berth Heading To Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals


BRAINERD, Minn. – After racing to his second career final round, Top Fuel veteran Terry McMillen is closer than ever to his first-ever appearance in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship. It also means the next two races, including this weekend’s Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway, are more important than ever.

McMillen’s runner-up in Seattle solidified his spot in the Top Fuel points, as he currently sits in eighth, 154 points ahead of 11th-place Shawn Langdon. It has McMillen feeling good in his 10,000-horsepower AMALIE Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR dragster, but also cognizant of the fact his team must continue to build on their recent strong performances.

“The true ingredient is just keep doing what we’ve been doing,” McMillen said. “(Crew chief) Rob Wendland is doing a tremendous job of racing the racetrack. The car is running well and there’s no reason it shouldn’t continue to do well. The car will do the talking for us if we go up and use the same game plan. I feel more confident than ever about getting into the top 10, and I feel like we’re peaking at the perfect time. It’s refreshing and definitely a confidence-booster.”

Mopar Hemi Challenge Returns For 17th Season At Chevrolet Performance US Nationals


The Mopar HEMI® Challenge is set to return for its 17th consecutive season at the prestigious Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Brownsburg, Ind., Aug. 30-Sept. 4. Mopar-powered Super Stock/Automatic-HEMI (SS/AH) Sportsman class competitors will go head-to-head on the quarter-mile at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis in original Mopar package cars — 1968 HEMI-powered Dodge Dart and Plymouth Barracuda machines.

The winner of the specialty event earns a $15,000 prize and a unique HEMI Challenge trophy. The Mopar HEMI Challenge also provides a cash prize payout to the top 16 finishers competing in elimination rounds. All entrants will receive special Mopar HEMI Challenge decals, hats and posters.

The Mopar HEMI Challenge made its debut at the 2001 Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals showcasing the classic muscle cars that contributed to the brand’s legendary reputation and success at the drag strip. The 1968 Dodge Dart and Plymouth Barracuda “package cars” were factory-built for the strip and the precursors to the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak vehicles that compete today in the NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes.

Top Fuel Scott Palmer Channeling Inner Rocky Heading To 30th Annual NHRA Northwest Nationals


KENT, Wash. – With each passing race, the magnitude of the situation grows a little bit bigger for Scott Palmer. But that appears to be just fine for the Top Fuel driver determined to make his first career appearance in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship.

A first-round win in Sonoma on Sunday over eight-time world champion Tony Schumacher in his 10,000-horsepower CatSpot/Marck Industries/Tommy Thompson Motorsports dragster kept Palmer in ninth and stretched his lead over 10th-place Troy Coughlin Jr. Heading to this weekend’s NHRA Northwest Nationals at scenic Pacific Raceways, the final stop of the famed Western Swing, Palmer knows he must continue to push forward to keep his spot in the top 10.

“This is a big opportunity,” Palmer said. “Getting into the Countdown would be like winning a championship for us. It’s the most important thing ever right now and it’s the most important thing racing-wise that’s happened to anyone on this team. This team is Rocky Balboa and we’re fighting Apollo Creed. There’s some incredible teams out here, but we’re still going to keep fighting.”

Funny Car's JR Todd Plans To Put On A Show At 30th Annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals At Sonoma Raceway


SONOMA, Calif. - J.R. Todd knows the importance of winning at Sonoma Raceway, doing it in 2016 in Top Fuel. While the Kalitta Motorsports driver is in a different class heading to the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals this weekend, the sentiment remains true for the now Funny Car driver.

Still looking for his first career Funny Car win in his 10,000-horsepower DHL Toyota Camry, Todd is looking to break through with the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship looming. Doing so at the Toyota-sponsored event would provide a big boost in that regard, and Todd has plans to put on a thrilling show this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

"It's nice to go back to a track where you've had success in the past," said Todd, who is currently ninth in Funny Car points. "Sonoma is one of my favorite tracks. Steve Page and his staff are the best in the business and do everything first class. You always want to show off for your sponsors and winning last year's event being sponsored by Toyota was great. A lot of the top guys show up for this event so it's important to us to run well and put on a good show for them."
