SPORTSMAN FINALS RESULTS FROM NHRA WINTERNATIONALS, POMONA, CA.

 Monday's final results from the 59th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. The race is the first of 24 in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series:

CUADRA PART OF PRO STOCK’S NEXT GENERATION

 

There is an unfamiliar face in Top Sportsman this weekend at the NHRA Winternationals, but the name is strikingly familiar. Fernando Cuadra Jr., son of Pro Stock driver Fernando Cuadra Sr., is entered and competing in the Sportsman door slammer category driving a 2008 Pontiac GXP formerly owned by Pro Stock champ Mike Edwards. The engines are Cuadra Racing’s own, tuned by Fernando Sr., and were purchased from the Gray Motorsports arsenal. 

Fernando Jr. finished No. 2 in Mexico in 2018 in Pro Competition, a category that is the equivalent of NHRA’s Top Sportsman, and licensed in the American version of the category last year. It’s only the beginning, though, for the young driver. He plans to make his Pro Stock debut at the NHRA Virginia Nationals this season and race each event thereafter.

COWIE, GORDON LEAD FIRST-DAY NHRA WINTERNATIONALS QUALIFYING

 

The first day of qualifying for the 2019 season is in the book, with a familiar face as the quickest sportsman drag racer on the property.

Shawn Cowie, the 2018 NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster series runner-up, started off the new season the same way he did last year with a first-day, provisional No. 1. Cowie laid down an impressive 5.166, 280.25 mile per hour run.

HUGE INFLUX OF CASH COMING TO NHRA DIV. 4 COMP ELIMINATOR

 

Rodger Brogdon might have a substantial investment in racing Pro Stock but hasn't forgotten his straight-line heritage. And, the successful business owner from Tomball, Texas, is all too willing to put his money where his fond memories are. 

Brogdon is providing an influx of $150,000 to the NHRA Div. 4 Competition Eliminator program with the hope it will stimulate growth in a division near and dear to his heart. 

"It’s always been my favorite class, and it’s still probably my favorite class even though I race Pro Stock," Brogdon said. "Just through the years, I didn’t like some of the rule changes. I don’t participate anymore but I love all the guys out there. 

SACKMAN BROTHERS TO RACE AT NHRA WINTERNATIONALS TOGETHER

 

Brothers Matt and Zach Sackman will race together at an NHRA national event for the first time this weekend at the 59th annual Lucas Oil Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. With primary sponsorship from Hangsterfer’s Metalworking Lubricants, Matt will compete in Top Alcohol Dragster and Zach will race in Top Dragster. 
 
“This is a very cool opportunity,” said Matt Sackman, 25. “Zach and I are both going to be running the Hangsterfer’s colors, so to have two shots to win at the Winternationals for Hangsterfer’s is a big deal.”
 
The Winternationals will be Matt Sackman’s third race driving one of Randy Meyer Racing’s championship-caliber A/Fuel dragsters in the loaded Top Alcohol Dragster class. The effort will be supported by Hangsterfer’s, Gemini Farms and TMS Titanium. 

THE SOUTHEAST DIVISION OPENS WITH THE RPM WINTER WARM-UP

 

The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Southeast Division arrives at Orlando Speed World Dragway for the Winter Warm-Up on February 1st-2nd. The event is one of 44 scheduled across the country where drivers earn points leading to divisional and national championships as well as a chance at a share of the year-end purse of more than $519,000. Categories include Comp Eliminator, Super Stock, Stock Eliminator, Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street. Stott’s Ford Top Sportsman Series and Hickory Enclosed Trailer Sales Top Dragster Series will also be run in conjunction with the event.

DFS PRACTICE TREE RACE WAS A SUCCESS

 

Mother Nature didn’t want to cooperate with a snowstorm.

However, in the end the 5th annual DragstersForSale Practice Tree Race Jan. 19 in Evansville, Ind., was a success according to event organizer Don O’Neal.
