For 34 years, the JEGS Allstars has brought together the top racers in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series to face off in a battle of the best of the best. The 2018 JEGS Allstars event will take place Saturday, June 2, at Route 66 Raceway during the JEGS Route 66 NHRA Nationals. The $124,000 race within a race will pit the top points earners from NHRA’s seven geographic divisions and four Top Alcohol regions against each other in the culmination of a yearlong points battle.

Competitors in Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Alcohol Funny Car, Comp, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Dragster, and Top Sportsman will compete for team and individual honors and a share of the $124,000 purse. Event sponsor JEGS High Performance has also offered a double-up bonus to racers. Any Allstars representative who wins the Allstars event and goes on to win the national event will have their Allstars prize money doubled.

The JEGS Allstars Top Alcohol regional team championship was introduced in 2013 with the best Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car drivers from each of the four regions going head to head as the West Region took home the championship in 2017. They were joined in victory by the North Central Division team, who scored their eighth win in the JEGS Allstars team championship competition.

There are three drivers pulling double duty for their team this year. The Northeast Division has a pair of drivers looking to double as Joe Santangelo and Nick Willard are both competing in two classes — Santangelo in Super Stock and Stock and Willard in Top Dragster and Top Sportsman. The Southeast Division has Jeff Strickland looking to double up in Stock and Top Dragster.

The defending JEGS Allstars winners are Joey Severance (Top Alcohol Dragster), Andy Bohl (Top Alcohol Funny Car), Brian Browell (Comp), James Antonette Jr. (Super Stock), Andrew Hill (Stock), Nick Folk (Super Comp), Ken Mostowich (Super Gas), Josh Dalrymple (Super Street), Steve Furr (Top Dragster), and Mark McDonald (Top Sportsman).

Pro Stock driver Jeg Coughlin Jr. has been an Allstars representative for the North Central division six times, winning the Super Gas class twice. Several of today’s NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series stars are past Allstars participants, including Funny Car driver Shawn Langdon (Super Comp participant in 2005-07, winner in 2005-06) as well as Tim Wilkerson (Top Alcohol Funny Car participant in 1995) and Jack Beckman (Super Comp participant in 2004-05, runner-up in 2004).
