The July 2023 issue of NHRA National Dragster, featuring complete coverage from the NHRA England Nationals, NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, and Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals and Sportsman-racer features, is now online in digital format and in the mail in its traditional print format to NHRA Members around the world.
In addition to our in-depth coverage from the trio of national events — including the completion of the rain-delayed Epping event that turned into a big Bristol weekend for Justin Ashley — we’ve got tons of photos from those events plus an interview with Top Fuel points leader Ashley.
Readers can also find an intriguing trio of feature stories inside, including an up-close look at Greg Stanfield’s new Factory X Camaro, which made its debut in Norwalk as the first of its breed in the new class. We also take a close look at Lauren Freer’s historic Norwalk double. Also in Norwalk, Funny Car winner Blake Alexander became just the 18th driver to win in both nitro classes, and we turn back the pages of history to look at the others who have accomplished the feat.
Luke Bogacki's "Science of Winning" column discusses the similarities and the differences between Super-class racing and bracket racing, while Brian Lohnes talks about career decisions and when to take that leap of faith in his "Unsolicited Opinion" column. Our monthly Race Tech column shares some great insights on how to improve your cylinder-head flow for added performance.
We’ve also got NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series coverage from Divisions 1, 3, 5, and 6, NHRA National Open reporting from Divisions 1 and 7, plus NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series action from Redding, Calif.
