Some further updated news from Kalitta Motorsports, including news about J.R. and Troy Coughlin Jr.
Some rumors out of the Kalitta camp in regards to J.R. Todd and a possible move to Funny Car.
Breaking news coming out of the NHRA today, including a crew chief change and change in executives. There is still more to come as well.
There has been an absolute explosion in popularity when it comes to Pro Mod over the last ten years or so. The question arises every now and then about whether Pro Mod is just another passing fad or if it really is a class of the future. It may not be as easy to answer as you'd think though.
At the end of the 2015 season we all sat around and talked about how bad the NHRA Pro Stock class was going to be in 2016 because of the switch to EFI. We talked about who would show up and who would quit. The thing we failed to talk about is how to actually grow the class.
I am sure that most of you have heard the rumors by now and even read the release given on social media about Precision Turbo and WabTec. WabTec is the parent company of Turbonetics as well.
A few weeks ago we saw what will most likely be the drag racing wheel stand that everyone talks about for years, maybe even decades to come. While that image of the Snap-on backed Toyota Camry of Cruz Pedregon is etched in most of our minds, that pass came at a cost. What happens though we losing isn't really losing?
We have pretty much come to the end of the 2016 season and now we look towards PRI and then the 2017 season. There isn't much downtime in our sport either, which as a content provider is just fine with me. It is time that we talk about the future though and who is going to lead it.
As I sit here this morning, on the cusp of Thanksgiving and think about all the things I am thankful for, something again ran across my mind, and that was haters. These internet trolls or people who just love to hate anything that is successful.
Well folks it's been about a week now since the wrap up of the 23rd Annual World Street Nationals held in Orlando, FL and I am here to tell you that it's back. This race is back to being a destination race. Quarter Mile Pro Mods, 10.5 Cars, Radial Cars, 632, and so much more. Folks, this really is a can't miss.
As first reported by Jimmy Biggs at PME (https://www.facebook.com/ProModWarz/), John Mihovetz, owner of Accufab has acquired Lenco Transmissions.
Well, what most of us figured was going to happen has now officially happened. Mopar and Elite Motorsports have parted ways. The Mopars are the NHRA Pro Stock cars driven by two of the most successful drivers in Pro Stock, Jeg Coughlin Jr. and Erica Enders. They have a combined 7 NHRA Pro Stock Championships between them.
When you think of the World Cup race in Maryland every November, what comes to your mind? I am willing to bet if you are an American Muscle Car fan you would think that World Cup is an Import Race, and you could not be more wrong!
As announced, J&A Service, who has been the backbone of the RPM Pro Mod class in the NHRA for the last few seasons will be back in 2017 as the class sponsor. The class will be adding two races as well. The first race added is in Charlotte 1, better known as the 4 Wide race. The second race is yet to be announced.
This weekend we saw Rickie Smith in his IDG sponsored Pro Mod Camaro win the NHRA RPM Pro Mod Championship. While the best ever is tossed around a lot, as it has been this weekend, I think it's safe to say when it comes to door cars, Rickie might be the best ever.
We have all heard about how Stevie Fast took flight at No Mercy VII almost a month ago now. You have all seen the video of Shadow taking flight and wrecking. What you may not pay attention to is the fact that Stevie walked away pretty unscathed.
There is a time and place for everything, and I think right about now is the time and the place to address the lack of respect people have for the motorsports industry as a whole.
Have you ever been to a race where it seems like the stand are pretty empty all weekend? Did you ever wonder why it's like that? Is it poor product, too expensive, bad scheduling, or something else?
It was with great anticipation and bated breath that we waited to see what the PDRA schedule for 2017 would be. This morning we finally got a look at it.
Can you believe that? Pro Mod standout and the one of the most talented drivers in all of drag racing has shocked us all again tonight in Orlando, when he took the FKR Radial Mustang and ran it out the back to a jaw dropping 5.973 at 251.77.
You read that right. We at E3xtreme have learned from our sources that the 2015 Pro Mod standout Troy Coughlin Jr. will be piloting a Kalitta Top Fuel car in 2017.
A little bit of water wasn’t going to stop an amazing day of qualifying yesterday. What seemed to be the longest round ever in RvW qualifying due to sprinkles a couple times, showed that the wait was worth it. A large contingency of X275 cars made it to the lanes last night as well as Nitrous X, Ultra, Outlaw 632, ODR, Pro 275, & Extreme Leaf Spring.
Well it's another day at SGMP in the books here at No Mercy 7 and we saw some amazing numbers already. There were 35 RvW cars that took the tree in Q1, with Daniel Pharris securing the top spot.
Well it's our first full day at No Mercy 7 and to say that there is a cream of the crop car selection would be an understate. Along with some amazing rides and some news along the way.
