Toledo Speedway Opening Day wins go to Campbell, Needles in Spring 200

Toledo, Ohio-April 22, 2017: Steve Needles and Brian Campbell grabbed the wins in Saturday’s Spring 200 at Toledo Speedway. The season opener at the Glass City oval saw both drivers go to victory in their respective 100 lap contests on a cool, yet sunny afternoon.
Despite the short field, a very competitive event ran caution-free in 30 minutes and 10 seconds for the Spring 100 for the ARCA Super 6 Gold Cup Late Model Series. Harold Fair Jr., who spent much of the night before putting together another car after destroying his primary machine in practice, took the lead at the start. Fair jumped out to a sizable lead, while Frankie Jiovani grabbed second spot on lap 6 from Dave Stehouwer. Needles, starting 7th, gradually moved his way to the front, taking 3rd spot by lap 18 and stayed glued to Jiovani’s bumper for the next 29 laps. Steve sailed around Frankie on lap 47 and reeled in the leader at lap 62, going to the high side to get around Fair Jr. for the lead. But the next dozen laps were quite exciting and entertaining as leader Needles encountered Phil Bozell and Scott Hantz, both battling to stay on the lead lap.
Bozell would nose ahead in the outside lane, Needles would move up and Hantz would slide back door to door with Phil on the bottom groove. Things got dicey as Fair Jr. and then Jiovani closed in, setting up some great racing for the fans. Needles proved to be patient enough to wait for a clean opportunity to get by both Bozell and Hantz, but everyone kept their calm as Needles finally slid around that duo to put them a lap down as the laps also wound down. Steve would build up a solid lead as he scored the victory.
Fair Jr., Jiovani, Brandon Lyons, Johnny Belott, Hantz, Bozell, Scott Pemberton, Dennis Strickland, Dave Stehouwer, Tommy O’Leary IV and Kevin Stahl Jr. completed the finishing order. The top 5 cars finished on the lead lap. Lyons set fast time at 14:894.
2-time Toledo race winner Brian Campbell nosed under race leader Johnny VanDoorn in the final 30 circuits on his way to the win in the Spring 100 for the ARCA/CRA Super Series Late Models presented by Jeg’s. VanDoorn held on for second at the stripe, Chad Finley was third, Stephen Wallace fourth and Tyler Ankrum fifth, followed by Christian Eckes, Dalton Armstrong, Cole Rouse, fast qualifier Josh Brock (15.423) and rookie Kyle Krump.
Toledo’s next event is the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards superspeedway-style stock cars Saturday-Sunday, May 20-21.

Pritchett, Capps, Butner win NHRA categories at Springnationals near Houston

 

BAYTOWN, Texas – Leah Pritchett piloted her Papa John’s dragster to the Top Fuel victory Sunday at the 30th annual NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway.

 

Ron Capps (Funny Car) and Bo Butner (Pro Stock) were also winners in their respective categories at the fifth event of 24 on the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.

 

Pritchett raced a 3.781-second pass at 321.96 mph to defeat Steve Torrence who ran a 3.787 at 322.11 in his Capco Contractors dragster. This is Pritchett’s fourth career victory and third of the season.

 

“Our goal was to leave as the points leader and that was not easy at all,” said Pritchett, who takes over the points lead with the victory. “Going into the final we said this is our bounce back and we’re going to keep it interesting. Never been in a position to really be counting points and I know it is early in the season, but I’m definitely enjoying that.”

 

Pritchett raced past Scott Palmer, Doug Kalitta and defending champion Antron Brown en route to the victory. Torrence faced Shawn Reed, Troy Coughlin Jr. and No. 1 qualifier Clay Millican before seeing Pritchett in the final round.

 

Defending Funny Car champion, Ron Capps, claimed his first victory of the season when he outran Robert Hight with a 4.004 pass at 284.33 in his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger R/T. Hight pushed his AAA Texas Chevy Camaro to a 4.107 at 202.88 in his first runner-up effort this season. It is Capps’ 51st career win and third at Houston.

 

“These things become so hard to win these days,” Capps said. “But you take things for granted where I felt like we should’ve won at any of those first three races of the season. NHRA Mello Yello Funny Car division has to be the most competitive thing in the world right now; its cut-throat.”

 

Hight experienced engine problems and crossed the center line before the finish line while Capps’ engine violently exploded as he reached the finish.

 

Capps pushed past Todd Simpson, 16-time world champion John Force and teammate Jack Beckman before facing Hight in the finals. Hight defeated Jim Campbell, J.R. Todd and fellow John Force Racing teammate Courtney Force before falling to Capps.

 

Butner obtained the first Pro Stock win of his career when he raced his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevy Camaro to a 6.550 pass at 212.26 to defeat No. 1 qualifier Jeg Coughlin Jr. Coughlin Jr. raced his JEGS.com / Elite Performance Chevy Camaro to a 6.562 at 212.03 in his first final round appearance since Seattle in 2015. This was Butner’s seventh final round appearance.

 

“Any win that you stand on that stage, Super Stock, Super Street or whatever it is (the feeling) never gets old. It’s a great feeling and you can’t explain it unless you experience it,” Butner stated. “To make four consecutive win lights is very tough and a lot harder than I expected.”

Butner defeated Allen Johnson and Greg Anderson before facing Coughlin Jr. in the finals. Coughlin Jr. lined up against Chris McGaha and Tanner Gray en route to his finals appearance.

 

The 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season continues at the Eighth annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals April 28-30 at zMax Dragway.

NHRA Saturday Qualifying from Saturday’s Springnationals in Greater Houston area

C. FORCE, MILLICAN AND COUGHLIN JR. EARN NO. 1 QUALIFYING POSITIONS SATURDAY AT NHRA SPRINGNATIONALS

 

BAYTOWN, Texas – Courtney Force secured the Funny Car No. 1 qualifier Saturday at the 30th annual NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway.

 

Clay Millican (Top Fuel) and Jeg Coughlin Jr. (Pro Stock) were also No. 1 qualifiers in their respective categories at the fifth event of 24 on the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.

 

Defending race winner, Force, set both ends of the track record with a pass of 3.851-seconds at 330.23 mph in her Advance Auto Parts Chevy Camaro during Friday’s qualifying to earn her 12th career No. 1 qualifier.

 

“It definitely feels good to come back to a track that we were able to win at last year,” Force said. “I feel like we’ve got a more consistent race car which was a goal coming off of Las Vegas testing. I feel like we’re heading in the right direction.”

 

In the first round of eliminations Force, who will be in pursuit of her first victory this season, will face Jeff Diehl. Ron Capps is qualified second with a 3.884 at 326.56 in his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger R/T and will race Todd Simpson and John Force and his PEAK Chevy Camaro are in third and will line up against Del Worsham.

 

Millican piloted his Parts Plus / Great Clips dragster to the fifth No. 1 qualifier of his career with a track elapsed time record of 3.722 at 328.22. He will face Steve Chrisman in the first round.

 

“It is really cool for me to qualify No. 1 by a thousandth,” Millican stated. “Since we did qualify No. 1, my plan is to go out there and stomp on that loud pedal four times and turn on that win light four times. These races are getting harder and harder, but we have a good car.”

 

Defending world champion, Antron Brown, is qualified second with a 3.723 pass at 322.50 in the Matco Tools dragster and will face Terry Haddock. Doug Kalitta is in the third qualifying position.

 

In Pro Stock, Coughlin Jr.’s 6.557 pass at 210.70 in his JEGS.com / Elite Performance Chevy Camaro held up from Friday to clench his first No.1 qualifying position since 2014. He won his first race here in the fall of 1997 after only two starts in Pro Stock.

 

“Car feels great and the track is really holding up nicely,” Coughlin Jr. said. “This is the site where I started my Pro Stock career 20 years ago. To get my first professional win here was extremely special. This was like the Disney Land of race tracks for Pro Stock as I was coming into the class.”

 

Bo Butner is second with a 6.560 at 210.80 in his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevy Camaro and will line up against Alan Prusiensky in the first round of eliminations. Veteran Greg Anderson and his Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro are qualified third and race Richie Stevens, husband of two-time world champion Erica Enders, in round one.

Qualifying from Saturday’s NHRA J&A Pro Mod Series Springnationals at Houston

CASTELLANA EARNS NO. 1 QUALIFIER, WINS FIRST ROUND AND SETS NATIONAL ELAPSED TIME RECORD DURING NHRA J&A SERVICE PRO MOD DRAG RACING SERIES EVENT AT NHRA SPRINGNATIONALS

 

BAYTOWN, Texas – Mike Castellana maintained the qualifying lead and ran the quickest elapsed time in NHRA Pro Mod history during eliminations Saturday at the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing, presented by Real Pro Mod Association, is the second of 12 events this season.

 

Castellana’s 5.759-second pass at 250.46 mph in his Al Anabi Racing ’17 Camaro during Friday’s qualifying sessions secured him the No. 1 qualifier. During eliminations, Castellana defeated Michael Biehle II with a national elapsed time record run of 5.722 at 251.77.

 

“It’s great,” Castellana said. “First I gotta thank Khalid Hamad for giving me the opportunity to drive this car this year. I gotta thank Frank Manzo and my crew. It’s unbelievable what they do. Right now, I feel like I’m in Wonderland or something right now.”
