Racers Blake Alexander and Aaron Stanfield join host Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast.
Alexander, who races with Jim Head in the Funny Car category, has seen positive successes over the last several races with increasing numbers of round-wins and even a semifinal appearance under his belt. He talks about the road to getting their race car back, the work they have put in, and how the team will approach the rest of the season, especially as they appear a virtual lock to make the NHRA Countdown to the Championship in the 10th position. An enlightening conversation about nitro racing.
The second guest is the winningest Pro Stock driver on the 2021 season so far, Aaron Stanfield. With three victories and four final-round appearances under his belt in 2021, the sky appears to be the limit for the 2020 Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown champion.
Stanfield talks winning, his insane three-class schedule at the Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals, how he will approach a championship run, and the work he puts in between races at the family race engine shop. A smart, driven, young man, Stanfield is a second-generation racer who has applied the lessons his father has taught him with great skill.
Two interesting chats this week!
