Justin Lamb has good news for Stock and Super Stock competitors in the NHRA Lucas Oil Sportsman series.
The winner of four NHRA world championships in the past five years, including two last year, does not plan on competing for another one this year.
But his desire to dominate in competition isn’t waning, and he’ll race this weekend in the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Lynn Ellison has come a long way from rural Kentucky – figuratively.
He still lives in Central City, a small town with a population of about 6,000 where his father, Raymond, still cuts hair at his barbershop. It was at the barbershop, where he grew up shining shoes for clients, that Ellison decided he wanted to go racing.
“I would read the racing magazines at the shop and see all the cool cars and venues they were racing at and thought, ‘I want to do that,’ ” said Ellison. “My dad had an old bracket car that I began racing and began to do well with.”

Aaron Stanfield loves to race.
Stanfield most recently was competing in the Gatornationals in the School of Automotive Machinists and Technology NHRA Factory Stock Showdown during the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals March 15-18 in Gainesville, Fla.
Stanfield was making his debut in the class and advanced to the final round before losing to his teammate Steven Bell.
“It was a lot of fun and it definitely rubbed on me,” said Stanfield, 23. “It was just awesome.”
