KRAWIEC TAKES NO. 1 SPOT ON VEGAS PSM LADDER

Eddie Krawiec keeps inching closer to his fourth NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle world championship.

After qualifying was complete, Krawiec held down the top spot with his 6.936-second lap at 191.76 mph on his Vance & Hines Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson at the Toyota Nationals at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

ANDERSON DRIVES TO TOP SPOT IN PRO STOCK AT VEGAS

Greg Anderson is in the midst of trying to win his fourth career NHRA Pro Stock world championship.

Anderson arrived at the Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a 15-point and 30-point lead over his teammates – Bo Butner and Jason Line.

BO KNOWS . . . HOW TO PROTECT HIS ASSETS

 

Bo Butner might be a used-car salesman from Floyds Knobs, Ind., but he’s as sharp as any Wall Street lawyer. Take, for instance, his recent . . . ahem . . . business acquisition.
 
After partnering with Kenny Koretsky and his Nitro Fish line of T-shirts, Butner had a lovely idea that seemed to backfire on him . . . and ended up backfiring more on the NHRA.

SCHUMACHER, BECKMAN, ANDERSON AND KRAWIEC CLENCH NO. 1 QUALIFYING POSITIONS AT LAS VEGAS

Jack Beckman set both ends of the track record for the Funny Car class during the final qualifying session to secure the No. 1 position at the 17th annual NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Tony Schumacher (Top Fuel), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also clenched No. 1 qualifiers in their respective categories at the fifth of six events on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship.

MOLINARI QUALIFIES NO. 1, WINS FIRST ROUND OF PRO MOD ELIMINATIONS AT VEGAS

Shane Molinari raced to his third No. 1 qualifying position of the season and was able to parlay the position into a first round win during eliminations at the J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing, presented by Real Pro Mod Association, is the final event on the 2017 schedule.

TORRENCE GETS SETTLED IN WITH NEW CAR

 

Steve Torrence is such a master at playing mind games with his competition, using his dragster to back up his words. Two weeks ago, in Dallas, his dragster turned on him. At least for a moment, in his mind.

Torrence had a comfort zone with the dragster which had propelled him into a point lead, and eight wins in eleven races, but this engineering marvel was reduced to a bundle of twisted tubing when a tire failed as he approached the finish line at the Texas Motorplex.

The cause of the crash is believed to be a tire failure. An unnamed source close to Goodyear's investigative process confirmed the tread of the tire was in good condition, but it appears something punctured the inner sidewall of the left rear tire.
