RUMOR MILL - NHRA PRO STOCK CHANGING AGAIN?

 

RUMOR MILL - WJ GUNNING FOR 300 MPH?

A story is likely forthcoming but we have heard rumblings which suggests The Professor Warren Johnson could be headed into the land speed arena. Yes, WJ on the Bonneville Salt flats. The rumor suggests he's going for 300 mph with a 300-cubic inch engine in a project with Dart Heads' Dick Maskin. We're shaking the tree, and we'll let you know what shakes out. 

RUMOR MILL - NEW FUNNY CAR BODY COMING SOON?

Looks like there's a new Funny Car body headed to the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Word has it the 2019 Dodge Charger body will make its maiden runs on Monday following the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk. Ohio. If all goes well we understand the new body could make its competition debut at the Mopar NHRA Mile High Nationals in July.

Bob Vandergriff Racing driver Jordan Vandergriff, whose father Kevin runs the family business Hedman Hedders, could be climbing the ladder of nitro stardom before the end of the season.

RUMOR MILL - MORE CO-CREW CHIEF TURNOVER?

It was just last week that Tommy DeLago was released from his role as co-crew chief for Kalitta Motorsports. Word comes to us today, another co-crew chief on a prominent nitro team was also let go from their role. Expect news of this to break in the next few days.
