Funny Car racer Terry Haddock and Scott Woodruff of JEGS join host Brian Lohnes on this wide-ranging episode of the NHRA Insider.
Haddock tells the story of his incredible weekend in Epping, where he appeared in a first career semifinal round. Haddock's story is one of grinding hard work and the relentless pursuit of drag racing success despite all the odds being stacked against him. He is truly a regular-guy Funny Car hero, and he talks about running his operation on a small budget with limited help and making his way in the world of NHRA Camping World Drag Racing.
“Woody" is JEGS’ Director of Media and Motorsports, meaning that if you see the JEGS logo on a car — at an event or being worn by someone — he likely had influence on that decision. In a discussion that ranges from the business of motorsports to the inside baseball of working with a sanctioning body like the NHRA, Woodruff gives great insight into an element of racing that the general public usually doesn't spend a lot of time talking about.
Two interesting conversations with two interesting people!
