hogue 01In general drag racing has always been a hotbed of innovation and experimentation, and with that in mind the Professional Drag Racers Association has announced that a bold new step forward will be taken when diesel motorsports pioneer Greg Hogue enters the Top Dragster wars in 2015 with his unique diesel-powered dragster.

For the last decade Hogue has been a leader in the rapidly expanding diesel motorsports arena as an engine builder and components manufacturer, as well as a highly successful racer. His credentials include, among many accomplishments and accolades, being the first to push a diesel-powered truck through both the 9 and 8-second barriers, and also being the first to compete with a diesel-powered vehicle in NHRA’s Super Street, Super Gas, and Super Comp categories.

hightFive events collectively don’t add up to 20 percent of the National Hot Rod Association's Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. But that's how many Auto Club Funny Car driver Robert Hight won.

That was more than anyone else in his class won, yet he finished fifth in the final standings. So as he prepares for the 2015 season, the President of John Force Racing understands just how difficult it is to earn a championship.
