2014 NHRA: Goodyear, NHRA Sportsmen at 4 Wide

2014 NHRA: Goodyear, NHRA Sportsmen at 4 Wide

“I am very well aware that this does not happen,” Corey Michalek said.

The 26-year-old New Yorker was celebrating making a dream come true and then gold-plating it. He was right. It just doesn’t happen.

Michalek won the final round of Top Alcohol Dragster at the NHRA 4 Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway. It was his first race at any level in the category and the win came on Goodyear tires.

The TAD category is part of the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series for sportsman teams.

Michalek won a contest sponsored by Champion Spark Plugs where the prize was an opportunity to drive a TAD car. His only previous experience in the Alcohol categories came as a crewman. He was a clutch specialist for Mark Thomas when Thomas won the International Hot Rod Association’s Top Alcohol Funny Car championship in 2007. Even as a Super Comp racer, Michalek had never competed in a national event before coming to zMAX.

“Everything is so new,” said Michalek.

He adapted very quickly. At the 4 Wide Nationals, Michalek drove a dragster owned and campaigned by Jared and Randy Dreher.

Goodyear’s history of success in TAD racing was reflected by the starting field, where 13 of the 16 starters raced on Goodyears. In the Lucas Oil series, competition is open among tiremakers.

Goodyear employs about 69,000 people at manufacturing plants and facilities in 22 nations. Based in Akron, Ohio, Goodyear is among the largest tiremakers in the world and is the worldwide leader in race tire innovation.
