J.R. Todd won the first four-wide event of the season, the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Las Vegas, and can go back-to-back in the four-wide format in Charlotte. The NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals kick off Friday at zMAX Dragway and the defending Funny Car world champion is looking for his second win of the season in just the sixth race.
Todd joined Lewis Bloom in the Wally Parks Studio to talk about the season so far, what has made him so successful in four-wide racing and his teammate Doug Kalitta. Todd has been to final rounds in nearly every one of the four-wide races he's contested during his admittedly brief Funny Car career, and he's picked up multiple wins. You can see if he picks up another victory in person by grabbing tickets or by checking out the coverage on FS1 beginning Friday.
