Shawn Langdon, Al-Anabi Racing Top Fuel Dragster (silver):
Reigning NHRA Mello Yello Top Fuel world champion Shawn Langdon enters the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals, the second of six races that comprise the Countdown to the Championship NHRA Playoffs, in third place in the NHRA Mello Yello Top Fuel Point standings – the same position in which he started the Countdown last week in Charlotte. Langdon lost to his teammate, Khalid alBalooshi, in the first round of Charlotte eliminations, but since the race was suspended and will be completed this weekend, the point standings are unchanged.
DALLAS, TX – One of the Pro Stock Motorcycle competitors favored to earn the Wally at the Pep Boys NHRA Carolina Nationals, Lucas Oil rider Hector Arana Jr. now has a chance to double up when Charlotte eliminations continue this weekend during the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex.
The No. 2 qualifier was geared up to take on No. 15 Shawn Gann in the first round of eliminations before deteriorating track conditions and rain postponed the entire event. While Arana isn’t concerned about the makeup race, a compacted schedule does throw a few wrenches into the team’s weekend plans.
“You know, it’s a completely different scenario now,” Arana said. “Normally we have four runs of qualifying any given weekend, and we were able to try all different kinds of things. Now we’re going to be racing during qualifying. That takes out some of the testing we would normally do during qualifying.

DALLAs, TX – Even though the Pep Boys NHRA Carolina Nationals in Charlotte were postponed until this weekend’s AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Adam Arana welcomes the challenge of running two full races at Texas Motorplex.
While he was ready to line up his ProtectTheHarvest.com/MAVTV Buell against Chaz Kennedy in the first round of eliminations in Charlotte, the youngest Arana thinks that the makeup rounds in Dallas might fit his riding style even better.
“It’s not going to be any different having two races in one weekend really,” Arana said. “If anything, I think the Charlotte races running during qualifying may be a little easier mentally because it won’t have the same atmosphere.
