An interview with Funny Car champion ROBERT HIGHT, JOHN FORCE RACING, AUTO CLUB OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CHEVROLET CAMARO SS (second career title):
Q: CRAZY THINGS CAN HAPPEN, AND THAT WAS ONE.

ROBERT HIGHT: Del Worsham came over to me before first round and said, ‘I don’t think I can outrun him, but I’m not going to give it to him. I’m going to make sure my car goes down the track.’ Del Worsham did the right thing by making it go down the track. It’s pretty cool; it’s been 10 years since Chevrolet has won a championship in Funny Car and we’re back. Continue reading Chevy Racing–NHRA–Pomona Post Race

Austin Dillon Drives No. 3 Realtree Chevrolet to 14th-Place Finish at Phoenix Raceway

“We had a really fast Realtree Chevrolet today. We struggled with a tight-handling condition on the front end, but Justin Alexander and everyone on the team did a good job making adjustments. We made an unscheduled pit-stop for a flat left-rear tire during a caution and ended up losing a little bit of track position. Later in the race, we ended up with a little bit of damage during a late-race restart that got pretty crazy and I think it hurt us a little bit. We ended up finishing 14th. Still, a pretty good day at Phoenix Raceway.”

Richard Childress Racing–Ticket Galaxy 200

Austin Dillon Closes Out His 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Season with Top-10 Finish in the Ruud Chevolet
“I️ was a little bit worried to start the race after qualifying the Ruud Chevrolet 16th and racing in 14th during Stage 1, but Nick Harrison made an air pressure adjustment that really helped and the pit crew gained us a bunch of spots on pit road. I️ thought we were going to be okay for a while there, especially when we were racing in second. The handling of the Ruud Chevy started to get tight again in the final stage and we lost track position. I️ felt like the right front was just gone. We have some work to do on the XFINITY program at RCR, but I️ know we will get there. I️ am proud of my teammate, Daniel Hemric, for making it to the Final Four. That will be fun to watch him go for the champsionship at Homestead. Also, congrats to Chevrolet for winning the Manufacturer’s title. They clinched that up today, which is pretty awesome so congrats to everyone at Team Chevy on that accomplishment.”

“Our task at hand is pretty simple, we have to win the race to move on next week, everybody in here knows that. We know that and we are going to try to attack the weekend as best we can. Hopefully, give ourselves a chance to do that Sunday afternoon and see what happens. That is pretty straight forward what we have to do with the situation we are in now. It’s not the most ideal situation, but if you were able to pull it off it would be a lot of momentum moving into next week.

TALK ABOUT YOUR APPROACH COMING INTO PHOENIX
“It’s a pretty easy approach for us. We’re in a must-win-situation. We wish we were in a better points scenario, but that’s not the case. This team thrives on pressure and adversity and we’re certainly in the position right now. When we look at the last two or three races here, we’ve had very competitive cars and the effort was made this week to make sure we brought the best bullet, second to none, and I’m really proud of my team and the way that all of Hendrick Motorsports is working together to make sure that the No. 24 car (Chase Elliott) and the No. 48 car have their best chances to win here and move on and stay alive for the championship. We’ll find out Sunday afternoon. I’m just excited to get out there and get to work.” Continue reading Chevy Racing–NASCAR–Phoenix–Jimmie Johnson

Fitzpatrick Racing Updated

We attended the NHRA Division 7 race in Las Vegas this past weekend and broke another import dragster record 5.88 et at 239 mph. I wanted to personally thank you for all of your support of our race team over the years we truly could not have achieved what we have without ARP. There is a lot left in it and we look forward to breaking more records with ARP in 2018.

Martyn Henry Time Attack

Unfortunately 2 engine failures in a row ment we lost out on winning the UK Time Attack championship, but we still managed to retain 3rd place in the end.

The year started off so well Too, we were winning the championship by a good chunk, but round 5 at Oulton Park during qualifying I ran wide on a corner pulling a piece of the front aero off which hit the sump starving the engine of oil, resulting in big end failure, we did manage to take the two wheel drive lap record tho before the engine failed 🙂
