Bond stays perfect in FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Action with victory In Charlotte
Justin Bond stayed perfect during the 2023 season in the FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by Type A Motorsports, picking up his second straight win on Sunday as part of the Circle K NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway.
The event, which was powered by Culp Lumber Company, was the second of 10 races during the 2023 season in the FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by Type A Motorsports, with Bond rolling to another victory. In the final quad at Charlotte, Bond drove past J.R. Gray, Rickie Smith and Jason Lee in his Bahrain 1 Racing Camaro, going 5.747-seconds at 243.37 mph to earn his fifth career victory.
"We've changed some personnel this year, and it's made a big difference,” Bond said. “Those guys are at the track when it's pouring rain, they'll take the car apart to make sure it's perfect. That's what I’ve got, I’ve got a perfect car."
Bond won both of his first two quads, going 5.706 at 252.05 in the semifinals. A round later, Bond was the only driver to make a full run, rolling to an impressive victory at zMAX Dragway. Gray finished as the runner-up, with Smith taking third in the final round.
With the win, Bond also extended his points lead, which now stands at 38 points over Gray after two races.
The FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by Type A Motorsports returns to action May 19-21 as part of the Gerber Collision & Glass Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by PEAK Performance at Route 66 Raceway in Chicago.
