This episode of the NHRA Insider podcast features interviews with Mark Ingersoll, who serves as crew chief for Erica Enders' car in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Pro Stock category, and ace Sportsman racer Johnny Labbous Jr., who has been racking up national event wins and is chasing another world championship.
Ingersoll talks of the challenges the team has been working through this season and the attack they took at Norwalk, which led them to a victory over Greg Anderson, who had a very strong race car. The talk turns to tech, Ingersoll's decorated history in the sport, and a whole lot more.
Labbous has been on one heck of a streak lately. A Super Gas win in Epping followed by a Super Comp win in Norwalk have rekindled Labbous in many ways, and he talks about it here. He also talks about the difficulties of racing for a living, how tight the competition is, and how "doing homework" is one of the hidden strategic points of bracket racing that premier racers like him focus on.
Great stuff from inside the world of drag racing here!
