On this episode, Antron Brown's crew chief Brian Corradi and Pro Mod's Jason Lee and Eric Gustafson join host Brian Lohnes for a conversation about how they set about winning their respective categories at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd.
The weekend was a challenge for everyone, and there were some interesting bumps in the road for each team to endure and overcome. They talk about 'em all here.
Corradi joins the conversation at the helm of a very hot Top Fuel team. Maturing through the season, the AB Motorsports group has peaked at the seemingly right time. Like last year, a late regular season win places them in perfect position for the Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals and potential Countdown to the Championship success. This is a great discussion about the approach his team has, how they operate, and what it will take to earn another championship.
Lee won FuelTech Pro Mod in Brainerd, and his car owner and fellow driver Eric Gustafson joins the chat about the weekend, the state of the Pro Mod class, rules parity, how hard the machines have to be run, and what the first season of NHRA competition has been like for these two highly experienced competitors. Both men have been champions in other series and are working hard to add NHRA accolades to their respective résumés. Fascinating deep dive into Pro Mod here!
This show will get you thinking, will get people talking, and will get you ramped up for the massive week that looms for the U.S. Nationals!
