Pro Mod racing teams are eager to put cars and drivers on track for the launch of the 2020 E3 Pro Mod NHRA Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service. Currently, the NHRA Mello Yello Schedule has the popular doorslammer class on the lineup for the July 18-19 event at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. That will be the second of back-to-back weekends slated for the relaunch of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing 2020 schedule. Drivers in the E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Drag Racing Series will contest a 12-event schedule in 2020 as originally planned. However, due to a scoring change requested by the race teams and approved by the National Hot Rod Association, racers will only earn points towards the season championship at just nine of the 12 events scheduled. According to the latest RACER...

Drag Racing Maybe Missing a NHRA Legend at Indianapolis

Drag Racing Maybe Missing a NHRA Legend at Indianapolis Image

After four and a half months without NHRA drag racing, the biggest stars in the National Hot Rod Association 2020 Mellow Yello Drag Racing Series are set to return to action this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. Nonetheless, with COVID-19 cases on the rise in every state that is set to host an event based on the current revised schedule, uncertainty remains at the center of the “New Normal” for everyone associated with the NHRA. Completing the 2020 season could still prove difficult as new coronavirus cases continue to climb in Florida, Texas, Tennessee, California, North Carolina, and Georgia. Rather than gamble, several drivers and top tier teams are noticeably absent from preregistration for the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA National scheduled for July 11-12. The...

Drag Racing Is Back at E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals Image

National Hot Rod Association is set to restart the 2020 drag racing season with back-to-back national events at Lucas Oil Speedway in Indianapolis. The COVID-19 reboot begins with the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals, which is the first of two events scheduled at the historic track. The pressure is on for drivers and crew to quickly find the speed they need with only two qualifying passes allowed on Saturday before drivers perform under fire in elimination rounds. Of the seventeen events remaining on the NHRA Mello Yello calendar, 16 of the world championship events on the revised schedule will also be condensed to two-day competition schedules to help compensate teams and promoters dealing with economic and logistical factors. The “New Normal” for the top tier teams at NHRA...

A little over a year ago life could not get any better for NHRA Drag Racing fans in Florida. Record crowds attended the traditional track walk for a stroll down the newly repaved Gainesville Raceway and mingled with the world’s fastest race car drivers and teams.

No Fans as NASCAR Returns to Racing

No Fans as NASCAR Returns to Racing Image

After realizing drivers and most crew members already wear a mask, gloves, visor, and a fireproof suit, the next step in reopening the most successful racing franchise in motorsports history was to find a track. Not just any track but one that is uniquely located close to most North Carolina-based racing teams but far enough away from everything else to minimize human exposure. The most obvious track… Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. There’s more Spanish Moss surrounding the track than people living there. Plus, why not choose the original superspeedway known as the Lady in Black. Although the sanctioning body had to restrict fans gathering anywhere on track property, everyone was quick to accept the fact that returning to racing must be in accordance with the CDC...

Gate Scheduled to Drop on Monster Energy Supercross Season

Gate Scheduled to Drop on Monster Energy Supercross Season Image

Due to the spread of coronavirus, officials at Monster Energy Supercross were forced to suspend championship racing following the tenth round at Daytona Bike Week in early March. Restrictions on domestic and international travel as well as federal, state, and local governments prohibiting large group gatherings, put one of the best championship point races on an indefinite hold. Team Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac and Team Honda’s Ken Roczen shared the red plate (denoting the Monster Energy Supercross series leader) with both riders deadlocked at 200 points. Midway through the Daytona Supercross, Roczen led the main event ahead of 2019 SX Champion Cooper Webb, Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson, and Tomac. Known for his ability to mount a late-race charge, Tomac reeled in Anderson and...

iRacing Captures Fans During COVID-19 Pandemic

iRacing Captures Fans During COVID-19 Pandemic Image

Sim (or simulated) racing games have been around for gaming consoles for more than two decades with all the major manufacturers like X-box participating in the growth and development of indoor racing. With stay-at-home mandates issued by governments around the globe, major sporting event organizers began to suspend games, races, and tournaments on a scale that had never been seen before. Suddenly, sports fans found themselves obeying “Stay at Home” orders but with very limited options for entertainment on television. That’s not to say there aren’t plenty of reruns being broadcast, but unless you’ve been living off the grid, you probably already know the outcome. Fortunately for racing fans worldwide, eRacing has emerged as a viable alternative for...
