LAS VEGAS – Justin Lamb began the 2017 season with hopes of winning a second NHRA Super Stock national championship in his trusty Silverstate Plumbing Cobalt. He also planned to make a mid-season debut in his new Redback Boots ’17 COPO Camaro in Stock. By the time all the points were counted at the end of the season, Lamb earned the NHRA Lucas Oil Series national championships and Division 7 titles in Super Stock and Stock. Teammate Kyle Seipel also scored a Top 10 finish in NHRA Top Dragster national standings.
“What we accomplished this year really hasn’t set in yet, but there are times that really make it feel real,” Lamb said. “We went to the Division 7 banquet over the weekend. I’m going to say if 15 people spoke at the banquet, 10 of them mentioned our season. When others start noticing, it almost makes it more real – makes me realize maybe it’s bigger than I think it is.”
LAS VEGAS – Two-time NHRA Lucas Oil Series national champion Justin Lamb secured the 2017 NHRA Super Stock national championship while racing at the NHRA Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas Friday morning. He’s also a serious contender for the Stock national championship.
“We set out this year with several goals, and one of them was to win a championship in Super Stock,” Lamb said. “We brought out a new Stocker and we weren’t sure how that would go, but we thought we had a good chance in Super Stock. It’s very rewarding and it’s nice that it’s done now. Both times I won championships in the past, it went down to the wire and there was a ton of pressure. It’s cool that we get to enjoy this one, especially here in Vegas at our home race.”
