Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals Funny Car winner J.R. Todd and Top Fuel-winning crew chief Ron Douglas join Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider.
Todd talks about the offseason and his road to victory in Gainesville, a welcome change from the frustrations of a 2020 season that saw no wins for his DHL Toyota Camry. Todd also talks about the electricity of the crowd, the champagne bath at the end, and how this could be a very special season in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.
Douglas, who tuned Josh Hart to a dramatic victory in Gainesville, talks about the weekend, talks about his career, the things he has learned along the way, and the special group of people who lay their hands on the race car to make it go down the track each time. This is a great perspective from a crew chief who shows up to win, weekend after weekend.
