Rivalries in sports are common.
There’s the bad blood between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.
The hatred between Michigan and Ohio State in college football –and who could forget the battles between Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier.
The Professional Drag Racing Association has a feud brewing of its own between Pro Nitrous racers – Stevie “Fast” Jackson and Travis “The Carolina Kid” Harvey.

In drag racing, Nitro is king.
Down Under in the midst of a power struggle between ANDRA and a conglomeration of tracks that have broken away and formed an independent series, the tracks revealed today they have plenty of nitro in their pits.

Once upon a time there were facilities a third the quality and size of stunning Route 66 Raceway in Joliet that were slam-packed with race fans who couldn’t get enough straight-line action. It was roughly the 10-year period from the early 60s through the early 70s, and the place was “Chicagoland,” an area that roughly encompassed not only the Windy City itself, but the surrounding environs. From northern Indiana on the south, all the way to Cordova in the distant southwest, to Rockford directly west on I-90, and even into Wisconsin north of the city, this was the region that locals knew as Chicagoland.

Oh, the irony.
Exactly one year ago, veteran tuner Jimmy Prock was tuning John Force to a victory at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio. On Sunday, Prock found himself on the other side of an intense rivalry between Force and his chief rival, Don Schumacher Racing, as he helped tune DSR driver Jack Beckman to a win at the very same track.
