NHRA officials have announced the formation of a Nitro Technical Advisory Council. The Nitro Technical Advisory Council will be chaired by NHRA Vice President-Technical Operations Glen Gray and will provide input on rules and other technical matters.
The Nitro Technical Advisory Council members represent a cross section of the current Professional nitromethane teams and include Mike Green, crew chief, U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster; Alan Johnson, owner, Alan Johnson Racing; Mike Neff, driver and crew chief, Castrol GTX Ford Mustang; Tim Wilkerson, owner and crew chief, Levi, Ray & Shoup Ford Shelby Mustang; and Del Worsham, crew chief, Tequila Patron Funny Car.
“We believe this group of seasoned and experienced participants in the Top Fuel and Funny Car categories can assist NHRA in both the short- and long-term,” said Gray. “The group understands the intricacies of the fastest-accelerating vehicles on the planet, and their knowledge could serve to help NHRA in rule making and technical matters that are in the best of interest of the entire sport.”
The first meeting of the Nitro Technical Advisory Council is set for this weekend during the 24th annual Dollar General NHRA Summernationals at Heartland Park Topeka.
