Antron Brown Powers to Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge Win at Las Vegas Four-Wide Nationals

LAS VEGAS – NHRA Four-Wide Nationals defending Top Fuel event champion Antron Brown raced his Matco Tools dragster to victory on Saturday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, picking up his first Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge win of the 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Series season.

Brown qualified for the Las Vegas running of the Mission Foods-backed ‘race within a race’ when he advanced to the quarterfinals a week prior at the NHRA Arizona Nationals near Phoenix where he came up short against Toyota teammate Shawn Langdon. Brown didn’t have to wait long for redemption as he lined up against Langdon as well as Shawn Reed and Steve Torrence in the first #2Fast2Tasty elimination quad a few days later during day two of qualifying for the Las Vegas four-wide event. Against his first three opponents, Brown clocked a 3.816 E.T., the quickest run of the group, to advance. Langdon recorded the second-quickest pass to advance alongside Brown, pitting the two world champions against each other once again in the final elimination quad. Continue reading

JERRY TUCKER PUTS OUTLAW MILE HI LIGHT BEER NO.1; JEG COUGHLIN JR. WINS MISSION FOODS #2FAST2TASTY AT NHRA FOUR-WIDE NATIONALS IN LAS VEGAS

LAS VEGAS – It was a pair of firsts for Elite Motorsports Saturday at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Jerry Tucker and the Outlaw Mile Hi Light Beer / SCAG Power Equipment team earned their first No.1 qualifying position while Jeg Coughlin Jr. and his SCAG / Mile Hi Light Beer team won their first Mission Foods #2Fast2Tasty Challenge.

Tucker stole the top spot from teammate Jeg Coughlin Jr. with a 6.612-second pass at 206.61 mph in the third qualifying session. In just his sophomore season, this is the first No. 1 qualifying position of Tucker’s career.

“It’s pretty difficult to get these cars down the track. I’m just really barely past being a rookie. There’s some added pressure, I’ve got Erica Enders’ car from last year, so it’s used to winning and we’ve had some trouble getting down the track. Everything just kind of lined up and we made three good hits this weekend so far,” Tucker said. “Really, from No. 1 to 16, they’re all tough competitors. I’m not sure there’s much difference from being one or 16. We made a good run down the track right of the trailer, that took a lot of pressure off. We got some luck, made a good pass, it hooked up and went straight and I halfway did my job right, so it just makes the whole weekend just a little bit better.” Continue reading
