2019 Midwest Nationals Flashback: It was an all-Kalitta mosh pit after Shawn Langdon beat teammate J.R. Todd in Funny Car final

“What at incredible day. Going through qualifying, we didn’t have a fast car, but we did have a consistent racecar." —Shawn Langdon, on winning in Funny Car at the 2019 NHRA Midwest Nationals

"After Reading where we smoked the tires a lot and blew the tires off at the starting line, we kind of had to go in a conservative way. It put us behind in qualifying and we ended up qualifying tenth and didn’t give us a good draw in the first round with Tommy Johnson Jr. with a very, very tough car and not an ideal draw to open with. My crew chiefs told me ‘We’re going to get you close. We don’t know exactly what it’s going to do because we made a couple of changes from yesterday. We think it’s going to run well and we’re going to give you the best car we can’. Fortunately, it worked out and we got a holeshot win and gave the guys a little bit of confidence.”—Shawn Landon, on winning in Funny Car at the 2019 NHRA Midwest Nationals
