NHRA National Tech Director Lonnie Grim and NHRA Medical Director Dr. Phil Surface join host Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider that is TRULY insider!
Grim talks about how the tech department works on race weekend and the process in developing a new class like Factory X, the freshly announced category that has captured the imagination and attention of drag racers across the country. It's a discussion on the inner workings of a side of drag racing few people know anything about.
Surface is not just a racing enthusiast, he is the man responsible for overseeing the NHRA on-site medical services at national events, and his job goes far beyond race weekends. Working hand in hand with NHRA to develop the protocols that allowed the sport of NHRA Camping World Drag Racing to resume so quickly in 2020 and continue in 2021, this is a fascinating conversation about not just health, but the role that a person like Dr. Surface takes in helping to even advance things like chassis safety and more.
Two important guys in drag racing with jobs few know much about!
