Sonoma Pro Stock Motorcycle winner Joey Gladstone and NHRA Funny Car points leader Robert Hight join host Brian Lohnes for this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast. After an incredible race in Sonoma, Lohnes recaps the event and its highlights and provides some insight into not only Sonoma but this week's Seattle race before settling down with the show's guests.
Gladstone captured his first national event win in his third straight final round by nailing a holeshot against Eddie Krawiec in the final. Lohnes talks to him about that event, the weeks leading up to it, and how his career has formed him up to rise to this occasion. This is a very personal conversation with the brightest rising star in this class of drag racing.
Hight is having one of his greatest seasons ever, and it shows no signs of letting up. While he was eliminated in the semifinals in Sonoma, he had been on a streak of finals and wins that have made him the points leader by a wide margin. Hight talks about the lessons learned in 2021 and how they have translated into the successes of 2022. It's a cool conversation and one that will take you inside the current successful season for JFR.
Big-time stuff happening at this time of the year, and Seattle is coming in hot!
