2013 NHRA: Four-Wide Again Gets The Best Of Stanfield

2013 NHRA: Four-Wide Again Gets The Best Of Stanfield

MAVTV Pro Stock racer Greg Stanfield would just as soon forget about the Dollar General NHRA Four-Wide Nationals over the last two seasons.

"This Four-Wide has been good to me in the past but not lately," Stanfield said.

Last year, Stanfield was timed out on the Christmas tree before he ever had a chance to let the clutch out in a first-round defeat. This year, he at least got to make a pass down the track but his Chevrolet couldn't advance out of the first round.

"The track just couldn't handle the power of the MAVTV Camaro," Stanfield said with a smile.

Stanfield, the No. 11 qualifier, ran a 6.752 at a slowing 174.87 mph to fall to No. 3 qualifier Shane Gray and No. 6 qualifier Erica Enders-Stevens.

Stanfield was using a new engine combination in his Camaro and there appears to be plenty of horsepower, but now he and his team need to adapt the added power to the track surface. That's an elusive combination for the five-time NHRA Pro Stock national event winner.

"It's disappointing, for sure, but that's just part of it," Stanfield said. "It's a learning curve. We've struggled some the past few races but we've got to figure it out."

Stanfield's three-man crew made it to the semifinals of the season-opening event in Pomona, Calif., but the rest of the season has been difficult.

"We struggle when the air gets good," Stanfield said. "We don't have enough test laps when the air is good. When the air isn't as good at certain tracks, the setup comes to us. We just haven't gotten the setup right."

Up next for Stanfield and the MAVTV team is the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals on April 26-28 in Houston.
