NHRA on FOX analyst Tony Pedregon and NHRA National Dragster's Phil Burgess join host Brian Lohnes on this final episode of the offseason before the 2022 Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com. The triumvirate talk about the major stories of the winter, one of which is how many major stories there has been this winter!
From the wild performance of John Force at the preseason test to the emergence of new team owners and teams, the notable drivers coming back, and a whole lot more, there's so much to talk about it's hard to keep all the storylines straight.
Pedregon digs in from the owner and driver perspectives to talk about the level of competition that the biggest names in the sport will have to confront. In Top Fuel, it is nearly unrivaled in modern drag racing history and early stumbles will not bode well for long-term season success. In Funny Car, it is more of the same and TPed breaks down all of it for the audience.
Burgess brings his years of NHRA experience to bear in this conversation and takes an in-depth look at the major headlines leading to Pomona. From the looks of the Pro Stock rank and file to the large contingent of Funny Car racers, Top Fuel insanity, and more, Burgess has the stories. There is also a chat about the state of media in drag racing and how teams are amping up their efforts to create interesting and cool content that fans both new and old love.
A HUGE episode before a HUGE race!
