This weekend at the famous Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg Indiana, we are going to be able to crown the champions in every single class. The points races in some of the classes and as tight as my pop's wallet.
Yep. Once again the NHRA has made the decision to ding the turbo combos in Pro Mod. Since directly after Bristol last season the turbo combos have been at 38lbs. Well not anymore.
We received word from Kalitta Motorsports today that Richie Crampton will be taking over driving duties starting at the U.S. Nationals this weekend.
You did in fact read the headline correctly. Rookie, if we can call him that, Troy Coughlin Jr. has decided to leave the seat of the SealMaster backed Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel Dragster.
It appears as though we have some real battles on our hands in the NMCA this season, and with only two races left before crowning a champion, almost every class is still up for grabs.
There are days that evil hides behind a gun, or days that evil hides behind a keyboard, and there are even days where evil hides behind a political office desk, but this weekend evil showed it ugly face in the worst of places, and that is our home away from home.
So, unfortunately I find myself having to write yet another article in regards to information that was misleading or outright wrong. The incident last night appears to be no different.
While some saw it coming and to say I am a tad disappointed would be an understatement, yet again the Bruder Brothers have been punished and theircombo for the 2018 season has been banned.
Over the last couple of days on social media I have seen quite a number of people playing keyboard quarterback in regard to Wes Buck’s World Series of Pro Mod. And yes, I wasn’t there, but it’s about time to address some things.
The time has come for the NMRA and NMCA to invade the upper midwest and show everyone how racing during the summertime is done. We will see hundreds of cars fighting it our for summer supremacy.
In the past it has always been a fear that if you move an event that has had success you will hurt the event. Tyler Crossnoe decided this week that it was time for his event to make that move and help the event grow.
PDRA Racing rolled into the legendary Lucas Oil Raceway last weekend for their fifth stop on the 2017 tour. While there was a great turnout of competitors, it wasn't without some angst on the part of not only the PDRA staff, but the drivers, fans, and everyone else there.
It's Friday, time to go racing. E3xtreme is on the property at the historic Lucas Oil Raceway for the PDRA Mid America Indy Showdown. This is the first time that the PDRA has brought their show to Indy.
For the last 9 months or so there has been quite a chasm when it comes to the ADRL. You are either on one side of the fence or the other.

We live in a world of absolutes. A world where everything became too big to fail almost ten years ago, yet we in motorsports apparently never got the memo. No, instead we continue to build super teams that have gotten to the "Too Big to Fail" point in Nitro racing.
In a world where it has become inherently easier to just follow the crowd, Chris Matters, Kevin Fiscus, and the team over at JPC have proven that following the crowd isn't their style.
Someone had to say it, so I guess I will go ahead and say it. It's time that the decision makers actually leave a successful class alone. Watch it grow instead of messing with it every other race.
Everyone knew that this was only a matter of time, but the record that had stood since June of 2011 has finally fallen. To no ones surprise it was Troy, Steve, Mikey, and the rest of the Jegs.com team pulling it off.
