The nurses at a North Carolina hospital probably got worried when they tracked the vital signs of one of their patients and heard an uproar from his room.
It really wasn’t anything to be overly concerned about, it was simply drag racing Hall of Famer Roy Hill watching his car speeding to victory near St. Louis on Saturday night. A win was virtually the best medicine Hill could have received, seeing how he had been hospitalized last week. Injuries he suffered while standing behind the burnout box at NHRA’s Charlotte race a month ago required further medical attention.

NHRA Top Fuel racer Josh Hart missed this past weekend’s event at New England Dragway at Epping, N.H., he has seen plenty of action swirling around his Ocala, Fla.-based Fearless Racing team and other companies.

Seven years after he began racing, Peter Xiberras has emerged from the shadow of his better-credentialled rivals after winning the top two prizes on offer for Aussie Top Fuel at the Willowbank Winternationals on June 13.
The Sydney owner-driver scooped the prize pool, winning his maiden Willowbank Winternational crown and also pocketing his first 400 Thunder championship. To cap off a near-perfect weekend, he reset the Australian record not once but twice, first, with a 3.76 and followed up with a sizzling 3.74 on race day.
The 3.76 run was made just hours after Billy Torrence clocked a 3.77 to top qualify at the TascaParts.com NHRA New England Nationals, on the other side of the world.
