nhra news and rumors 2020

According to sources close to the situation, Camping World Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis is set to announce a partnership between his massive RV and RV parts sales company and the National Hot Rod Association as soon as tomorrow – at some point during the Fox Sports 1 broadcast of the Mopar Express Lane NHRA Midwest Nationals in St. Louis. He’s certainly not Force, but he has a Texas attitude and edginess bordering on cockiness – in a good way – that could propel him to become the next face of the NHRA. Notice I didn’t use the word “replace” because there is no way you can ever replace someone like Force. Moves like those have also drawn the ire of car manufacturers. Written by Susan Wade, photos by NHRA Mon, 2020-10-26 19:00 When Steve Torrence formed his family-centric Capco Contractors Top Fuel team, his aim was to become a dominant force in the NHRA’s headliner class like Tony Schumacher was for the drag-racing empire his father built. We at E3xtreme just received word this afternoon that NHRA sent a letter out to competitors laying out their payout plan for the remainder of 2020. @CampingWorld https://t.co/HXSMg0o2ig, — Marcus Lemonis (@marcuslemonis) October 3, 2020. Maple Grove Raceway saw Jack Beckman score his first Funny Car win in over a year, while Richie Crampton captured Top Fuel, Jason Line conquered Pro Stock and Jerry Savoie took Pro Stock Motorcycle honors. Third on the NHRA’s list of priorities for the new decade should be addressing the schedule, which has grown stale and lackluster. The fourth race of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season is set for March 27-29 at zMAX Dragway in Concord, N.C.

Todd moved into the NHRA Funny Car points lead with his second straight victory of 2018 at Maple Grove Raceway, as Steve Torrence, Vincent Nobile and Hector Arana Jr. also won at the first of six playoff events in the Countdown to the Championship. In fact, 100 percent of the Top 10 drivers in 2019 all drove Chevrolet Camaros. General Motors confirmed on Thursday a restructuring of the administration of its motorsports programs, including a new director of its NASCAR efforts. We had a context to fit it in. Bob Tasca III powered to his first Funny Car win in nearly seven years, beating John Force in the final round of the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway, while Mike Salinas also picked up the victory in Top Fuel. If the news does come to pass, it could, in the end, prove wise on Force’s part — the NHRA has already lost its Seattle, Washington event, and rumors have been persistent over the last two weeks regarding the fate of the August 14-16 race at Brainerd, Minnesota. I'd suggest Capco provide some sponsorship dough to Cameron's team. From Small Tire to NHRA Nitro, we are the place to find the best news, rumors, features, and drag racing coverage. Former NHRA champion Tanner Gray’s next NASCAR venture will take him to the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. NHRA should have penalized you, Steve, with a (5)- point infraction giving the title to a well deserved winner in the form of Doug Kalitta. There are a number of positive signs in the sport, but there are also some grey – if not dark – clouds on the horizon that the NHRA must weather if it hopes to have future growth. Sure, some of that has to do with Chevy’s superior aerodynamics and performance, but it doesn’t make NHRA look good – especially when, like NASCAR, the sanctioning body is trying to attract more manufacturers to the sport. Robert Hight finished off a standout weekend by racing to his 50th career Funny Car win at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway, as Billy Torrence won Top Fuel, Greg Anderson took Pro Stock honors and Andrew Hines prevailed in Pro Stock Motorcycle. Ten years from now, it’s safe to say the NHRA we know today, to paraphrase an old slogan, will not be your father’s NHRA anymore. I’d be hard-pressed to believe Capps (54 years old) and Hight (50) will still be piloting a Funny Car in 2030.
Another Force daughter, Courtney, was well on her way to becoming the second-most popular driver behind her father, but she stepped away from the sport prior to the 2019 season. It appears Steve still doesn't get it. At least the NFL has the sense to suspend a player from Cleveland. In consideration of the COVID-19 global pandemic, NHRA officials announced today revisions to the 2020 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule. Rather than continue to try and prop up Pro Stock’s flagging fortunes both from a dollar and competitive standpoint, NHRA made yet another unpopular move in 2018 when it cut the category’s schedule from 24 to 18 races (NHRA originally wanted to cut the slate to just 16 races, but faced a driver backlash). Steve Torrence took over the Top Fuel points lead in the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship with victory, as Robert Hight, Deric Kramer, and Andrew Hines also won in their respective categories in the North Carolina Nationals. #NHRA is expected to announce new title sponsorship with Camping World tomorrow.

Sep 20, 2020 Chad Reynolds 2.
