The 2011 NHRA Countdown to the Championship has begun and Nitro Rewind continues to talk with the contenders and the spoilers. This week’s episode talks with the Top Fuel and Funny Car winners from the O’Reilly Auto Part Nationals at zMax Dragway and looks to the Lone Star State and the AAA Texas Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex. The show, an internet based broadcast, is hosted by Bill Stephens and features interviews from Top Fuel and Funny Car NHRA competitors, is available on the NHRA’s YouTube channel after every NHRA national event.
“The Countdown got started in Charlotte and it was a record setting weekend. Viewers will get a great description from Matt Hagan of his record setting 3.995 second pass as well as his thoughts on eventually winning his first race of the season,” said Ashley Force Hood, John Force Entertainment president.
“One thing Nitro Rewind will not do is forget about the drivers not in the Countdown. This week we talk with TJ Zizzo one of the up and coming Top Fuel teams that is running strong against the mega teams. We also check in with fan favorite Antron Brown.”
