Multitime Pro Mod winner Lyle Barnett and drag racing suspension guru Mark Menscer join host Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast. The guys talk about their careers in the sport, how they have achieved their success, and what the future holds for premier doorslammer straight-line competition.
Barnett was one of the breakout stories of the 2021 NHRA Pro Mod season. His transition from the world of radial drag racing into quarter-mile Pro Mod racing was swift, and while the team had their struggles, two late-season wins after swapping cars had them flourish among tough competition. The conversation about the season, the NHRA Pro Mod class, rules, screw blowers, and more is a must listen.
Menscer came to the world of drag racing from dirt track competition, and it was purely accidental. That happy accident has resulted in performance gains in drag racing that many people never saw coming. Menscer talks about his evolution in drag racing, his approach, the science of suspension, and what his own personal interests in the sport are.
A couple of great conversations as well as breaking news, rumors, and more!
