J.R. Todd joined NHRA reporter Lewis Bloom via Skype in the Wally Parks NHRA Studio delivered by Papa John’s to talk about his first ever Funny Car win at the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Todd is the 91st driver to win a race in Funny Car and just the 16th driver to have wins in both of NHRA’s nitro classes. 

Todd spoke about days following his big win, along with some of the defining moments from Sunday's race day, including his wild comeback victory over veteran driver Jack Beckman. Todd also discussed his first season in a Funny Car following many successful years in a Top Fuel seat and the battle for a spot in the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship.
