Erica Enders took over the Pro Stock lead after a first-round victory combined with a first-round defeat for Jason Line at the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals.
Sunday's rain-out in both the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and the NASCAR Cup Series allowed Kyle Larson to root on his favorite Funny Car racer.
Justin Ashley started his Top Fuel career nearly perfectly. He cut a .041-second reaction time and, more importantly, turned on the win light.
A day later than expected, but welcome again to raceday at the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals. Champions will be crowned today in the four Mello Yello classes, plus Pro Mod, Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car at the third race of the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship at zMAX Dragway.
Due to precipitation throughout the morning and afternoon on Sunday, and despite multiple attempts to get the track dry, eliminations at the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway have been moved to Monday.
The day-to-day pressures of chasing an NHRA Mello Yello series championship is usually more than enough to induce an upset stomach, cold sweats, and sleepless nights. Pro Stock racer Alex Laughlin suffered through all of those symptoms and then some Friday night in Charlotte.
The deed may say that Bruton Smith actually owns zMAX Dragway, but Steve Torrence has occupied the winner’s circle here so often that he ought to be granted residency at least. He's shooting for his fourth straight win at the track and fifth in the last six.
Justin Ashley enters the first eliminations round of his professional career today at the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals after successfully qualifying his and Dustin Davis' Influencer dragster in his Top Fuel debut.
Jack Beckman qualified No. 1 for the second time this season, fending off all challengers for his 26th pole position with his Friday pass of 3.873 holding fast.
Steve Torrence held onto the No. 1 spot for his fourth pole of the season and the 23rd of his career as no one was able to better his Friday best of 3.711, though several people came close to unseating him.
As she pursues her third Mello Yello championship, Enders banked 11 of 12 possible bonus points in qualifying while putting her Melling-backed Chevy Camaro into the top spot for the third-straight event.
In one of the most surprising developments of the year, Steve Johnson will start from the top of a Pro Stock Motorcycle field for the first time since the 2013 Englishtown race.
NHRA National Dragster photographer Marc Gewertz was all over zMAX Dragway on the second day of the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals, providing a gallery's worth of photos from on and off the track.
The start time of Sunday’s final eliminations for the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway has been moved up one hour and will now begin at 11 a.m.
As if tuning four Pro Stock Motorcycles wasn’t enough, reigning world champ Matt Smith decided to increase his work load this weekend by making his national event debut in the Super Comp class.
