COMINGS AND GOINGS IN THE NITRO WORLD
We are told of at least one driver leaving his current ride and another new face entering the Funny Car ranks this season. A source tells us Jeff Arend will not return in 2015 as driver for Jim Dunn Racing. On the other hand, we hear that past NHRA Heritage Series champion John Hale will be on the tour full time. Although we haven't heard anything official on Hale's situation, our sources indicate it's a dunn deal.
