JUSTIN ASHLEY GETS A SHOT WITH NEWLY ANNOUNCED CO-PRIMARY SPONSOR VITAC SHOT

 

Justin Ashley has been proficient when it comes to bringing in sponsorship for outside of the mainstream companies. Friday at zMax Dragway, the 2020 Rookie of the Year introduced another new marketing partner. 

Ashley announced VitaC Shot, an energy-boosting supplement mixture of Vitamin C, caffeine, magnesium, and Zinc, to provide sustained energy with zero sugar. 

"I could not think of a better company for our program to partner with, than this company right here, and we're grateful for the opportunity, and we're looking forward to it," said Ashley. "The great part about it is, it has the caffeine in it, it has the energy, but it's more about the vitamins. It's more about the minerals that are going to provide you with good health and make you healthy the right way, which is something that I absolutely love. 

MILLICAN UNVEILS NEW SPONSORSHIP, PARTNERSHIP IN CHARLOTTE

 

For the second time this season, Top Fuel driver Clay Millican has unveiled a medical industry-related sponsor. 

Millican is racing at the DeWalt Tools NHRA Carolina Nationals with sponsorship from Nurtec ODT, a medication for the acute treatment of migraine headaches. However, the connection to the medical industry, is just a coincidence. 

BRITTANY FORCE KNOCKING ON THE DOOR OF BECK'S HISTORIC NO. 1 QUALIFIER RECORD

Growing up in drag racing, Brittany Force is aware of the legends and their great accomplishments. The second-generation drag racer entered this weekend's DeWalt Tools NHRA Carolina Nationals knocking on the door of a nearly 30-year old Top Fuel record. 

In the 1982 and 1983 seasons, Gary Beck drove the Larry Minor Top Fuel dragster to nine consecutive No. 1 qualifiers. Friday night, Ms. Force pulled to within one race, at least provisionally, of Beck's longstanding mark on the strength of a 3.662 elapsed time at 331.85 miles per hour.  

JUST LIKE MOSES, 70-SOMETHING JOHN FORCE ON THE EDGE OF THE PROMISED LAND

One could easily conclude that 16-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force is on a mission. 

Force, in Friday's lone qualifying session at the DeWalt Tools NHRA Carolina Nationals, drove his way to the provisional top spot with a 3.860 elapsed time at 332 miles per hour. If the run holds through Saturday's heat of the day sessions, it will mark the third time this season that Force has gone into Sunday as the No. 1 seeded driver. 

JERRY BICKEL RACE CARS CRANKS OUT ANOTHER BEAUTY

 

The team at Jerry Bickel Race Cars, known for their talents in cranking out top-notch Pro Modified cars, recently rolled out a Top Sportsman entry worth showcasing. This Camaro belongs in Artesia, New Mexico's Craig Liles and is destined for NHRA Div. 4 competition. 

JOHNSON RIDES BLINDLY TO PROVISIONAL PSM NO. 1 IN CHARLOTTE

When Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Steve Johnson pulls off something spectacular, tempering his enthusiasm isn’t an option. However, after riding his four-valve Suzuki to the provisional No. 1 Pro Stock Motorcycle run during opening day qualifying at the DeWalt Tools NHRA Carolina Nationals, he was a bit more subdued than usual. 

Johnson, who entered zMax Dragway as the leader in Pro Stock Bike pits, was someone confused by what had transpired during the 6.807 seconds it took him to reach the finish line stripe while speeding along at 196.47 miles per hour. 

STANFIELD ON THE CUSP OF FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK NO. 1

It’s hard to imagine a driver who has already achieved so much success in Pro Stock by winning four races in his relatively sho rt career may have finally gotten around to scoring his first career No. 1 qualifying effort. The action took place during first-day competition at the DeWalt Tools NHRA Carolinas Nationals. 

“If it holds, this would be the first pole position,” Aaron Stanfield said with a smile. “I guess I haven’t been holding the throttle down hard enough. But I held it down good that time.”
