LAS VEGAS – The three weeks away from the racetrack were put to good use by Larry Morgan and his Lucas Oil Ford Mustang Pro Stock team.
Instead of simply getting ready for the next race, this weekend’s NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Morgan and his team spent time they usually don’t get during the season on a little research and development.
“The break was good for us,” Morgan said. “The break was good for everybody.”
Morgan’s Mustang was examined and re-examined, with small details the focus instead of a simple car tune-up.
“We fixed a lot of things that were wrong with the car that we had overlooked,” Morgan said. “We’ve just been preparing for the last two races. We’re looking forward to it, to be honest with you. It’s all good.”
NORWALK, OH – Scotty Stillings is a five-time IHRA World Champion.
He won his first championships as a kid in the late 90s. His third and fourth titles came in the mid-2000s as he grew into a regular in the ranks of Super Stock. But it is his fifth title, won earlier this year at the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment World Finals at Memphis International Raceway, that stands as the most unique of his championship collection.
While every championship has its own unique set of circumstances, some won in the final passes of a season, others dominated from start to finish, it was Stillings’ championship in Memphis that served as his first taste of victory in the Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions, which has been deciding IHRA’s sportsman champions since 2009.
YORBA LINDA, CA – John Force has one primary focus for the next two races; do whatever it takes to win the Mello Yello NHRA Funny Car championship. He does, however, know that fans have been clamoring to see his 16X celebratory Funny Car paint scheme, which has become a tradition for the winningest driver in NHRA history. Force will unveil and qualify in the 16-time Champion American Made themed Ford Mustang Funny Car. The look of the car was designed to resemble a battle weathered American flag.
“I wanted something that really showed who I am. I am American Made and everything about John Force Racing comes back to that idea. This is a tribute to all my employees who are American Made and work harder than any team out here. I love America and I love NHRA Drag Racing. This was the perfect look for my 16-time championship Funny Car,” said Force.
NORWALK, OH – Sometimes, all it takes is a little motivation.
For more than a year, Jimmie Hutto’s beautiful AA/SA 1967 Camaro sat hidden away in a corner, waiting for just the right moment to be resurrected and returned to the dragstrip. But with each passing race weekend, that time seem to come and go until one day, Hutto found the drive to restore his ride and return to the racetrack. And the motivation? None other than his son, Justin Hutto.
“Justin races in Junior Dragster and he won his local track championship last year and he’s been totally focused on going for a bigger championship in 2014,” Hutto said. “We decided together that we would fix my car when we could do it right. And that is exactly what we did. It has been a great car all year and my new engine combination made all the difference. Once the car hits, all you have to do is kind of not screw up.”
Hawker Racing – Third Place
The journeyman racer, who hails from Corbyville Ontario, qualified for all PMRA events this season with the Hawker Racing Pro Modified, a car which produced numbers in the low six-second range at speeds of 230 mph down the quarter-mile. His best showing in 2014 was a semi-finalist position at US 131 in Martin Michigan.
Power for the Firebird comes from a 526 cubic-inch BAE engine with a PSI D Screw Supercharger and a Billes fuel system. A Lenco three-speed is attached to the powerplant, and all this sits in a Vanishing Point Race Cars product.
LAS VEGAS – Heading to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Hector Arana Sr. feels like he’ll be leaving Las Vegas hitting the jackpot during the NHRA Toyota Nationals, Oct. 31-Nov. 2.
“We went over the engines like usual as a preliminary check,” Arana said. “Other than that we didn’t really change anything. Why change something that was working well at the last race?
“We just want to go to Vegas relaxed, roll the dice, go with the flow, and see what happens.”
With his Lucas Oil Buell running the best it has all season long, Arana is motivated to have the results reflect his hard work. Heading into a track where the entire Arana Racing team has had success, he is confident that this is a weekend that they could dominate.
