Months before the championship was clinched, the Wolfe Racing team began evaluating their plans for 2015 and made the decision to begin the search for a new ride.  The right situation presented itself and the build process began while the team was still battling it out for points.  Now, early into the off-season, the new Camaro rolling chassis is complete and already sitting in the team's shop in Moorefield, WV.

Written by Administrator.

 

PRIDrag racing plays a prominent role with the PRI Trade Show, as the search for maximum horsepower matches up so well with all the displays of all the latest new horsepower parts..  That role has grown with the show’s return to Indianapolis, the heart of the drag racing world, last year.  This year’s 27th annual PRI Trade Show will take place at the Indiana Convention Center from December 11–13.
 
“The industry has evolved so much from those grass-roots days,” said John Kilroy, PRI Trade Show producer.  “The latest in innovation and technology draws drag racers from all over the world to the show, but everyone from the local racing parts retailer to the biggest Top Fuel teams still come looking for the same thing – to find the means to go faster.”

FALL FOOTBRAKE FRENZY VII COMES TO CHILLY CONCLUSION

Written by Administrator.

 

flood wc cbWhile Mother Nature turned a cold shoulder on the Fall Footbrake Frenzy VI initial kickoff at Piedmont Dragway in Julian, NC, warmer fortunes prevailed, and history was made on multiple fronts. Friday's Summit Racing Equipment $5K Warmup was cancelled due to steady temps below 40 degrees, but promoters Anthony Walton and Michael Beard of Loose Rocker stacked the $5K on top of Saturday's NitroPlate $20K Main Event, along with all of the round money and prizes.
 
Cold temps forced a similar combining of races last year, with Adam Davis of Eva, Ala. capturing Loose Rocker's first $25,000 payday, but with the substantial purse increase offered this year, Saturday alone bulged with a staggering total cash payout of over $50,000! Because of the loss of Friday, the $50 weekend entry discount was offered to the $25K entrants, and buybacks were not raised at all, remaining at just $100. Third round winners received $300, with an additional $250 per round after that.
