DSB 9171The last time Robert Hight won four races in a season [2012], he didn’t win another for almost sixteen months. Hight entered the NHRA Mopar Mile High Nationals with four wins and a dry victory spell dating back to May.

Success rained down on Hight in the final round over the weekend, his seventh of 2014, when, following a rain-delay at Bandimere Speedway he defeated his boss and father-in-law John Force.

ENDERS-STEVENS MAKES IT OFFICIAL: SKIPPING SONOMA, SEATTLE RACES

Written by Administrator.

ps winner 2Pro Stock points leader Erica Enders-Stevens will skip the NHRA national events in Sonoma, Calif., and Seattle in order to better prepare for the rapidly-approaching Countdown to the Championship, Elite Motorsports team owner Richard Freeman announced Sunday at Bandimere Speedway. Enders-Stevens has led the points since March, making her the most prolific racer in the pro classes this season.

"This has been the game plan for us from the start," Freeman said. "The fact we've had such a great year and Erica has been driving so well is bringing more attention to this move but we never intended to run the entire schedule. We don't have a major sponsor, so there are no commitments to fulfill. The rest of our supporters are totally onboard.

"We've got some things we want to work on to prepare for the last few regular-season races and especially the Countdown. I really believe we'll still be in the points lead, even skipping Sonoma and Seattle, or we'll be close enough to get that No. 1 ranking back in the two races before the Countdown starts."
