2014 NHRA: Spencer Massey NHRA SpringNationals Event Preview

There couldn't be a better place for Spencer Massey to score his first victory of the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season than in his home state of Texas.

For the first time since 2011 Spencer and the Battery Extender Powered by Schumacher team haven't made a trip to the Winner's Circle at any of the first five races in an NHRA season.

Spencer has many memories at the track Royal Purple Raceway near Houston but none of them are from the winner's circle. He's ready to change that.

"I've been to Royal Purple Raceway a lot, going back to when I was a kid and working on my friend's dragsters and even now helping out my Division 4 buddies," he said. "I've actually already made one stop there this year, back in March, so it'll be good to get back.

"There's nothing quite like racing somewhere that you consider home so I'm really looking forward to it. You try not to put any extra pressure on yourself but I really want a Wally trophy from Texas. It would be unbelievable. I really don't think I can describe what I think it would feel like. It would be huge for me."

Spencer is anxious to get some momentum going before the first of three consecutive events takes place on May 16 near Atlanta.

"We have a great car. I would just say that we've had a little bit of bad luck to start the season. Phil (Shuler) and Todd (Okuhara) have really got a handle on this car and we just need to get some momentum going.

"It's almost to that stretch of three and four events in a row and you definitely need to be on your game for that so to go out in Houston and get four round wins in on Sunday would be great."

Spencer has never reached the final round at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston in the NHRA Top Fuel category.

"I definitely haven't had as much success there as I've hoped. Maybe this will be our year."
