GLENDORA, Calif. (Nov. 26, 2007) - NHRA POWERade Series world champions Tony Schumacher, Tony Pedregon and Jeg Coughlin headline the Drag Racing nominees for the 2007 American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association (AARWBA) Auto Racing All-America Team.
Two drivers from each of seven categories - Drag Racing, Open Wheel, Stock Car, Road Racing, Short Track, Touring Series and At Large - will be selected to the first team by the members of the motorsports press association. Two second team drivers from each category also will be named.  The remaining drivers in each category receiving five percent of the vote will receive honorable mention status.
In addition to Schumacher, Pedregon and Coughlin, Pro Stock runner-up Greg Anderson also was nominated in the Drag Racing category and Top Alcohol Funny Car world champion Frank Manzo was nominated in the At Large category.
The driver receiving the most votes overall will be presented the prestigious Jerry Titus Award, recognizing AARWBA’s Driver of the Year. Schumacher won the coveted award last year, while 14-time NHRA Funny Car world champ John Force is a four-time winner (1996, 1999, 2000 and 2002). Shirley Muldowney (1982) and Don Prudhomme (1976) are the only other drag racers to ever win the Titus Award.
Schumacher won the final round of the final race of the season in his U.S. Army dragster to claim his fifth Top Fuel world championship and an NHRA-record fourth consecutively. Among Schumacher’s six victories on the season, he won the prestigious Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis for the fifth time.
Pedregon claimed his second Funny Car world championship behind the wheel of his Q Horsepower Chevy Impala SS. Pedregon set a national record elapsed time in Phoenix and earned four victories in five final rounds. An emotional victory at Las Vegas in October during the Countdown to 1 positioned Pedregon to clinch his first POWERade championship as a team owner.
Coughlin earned his third Pro Stock title in his Chevy Cobalt with four victories in eight finals, including an NHRA-best 7-1 eliminations record in the Countdown to 1.
Anderson drove his Summit Racing Pontiac GTO to a second place finish in Pro Stock with eight victories in 12 final round appearances and a national record elapsed time performance at the famed ACDelco Gatornationals in Florida. 
Manzo received a nomination in the At Large category for securing his 11th NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car world championship in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series. He raced to four national event wins and six divisional event wins to take the crown.
IRL champion and Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti and CART champion Sebastien Bourdais lead the Open Wheel category, while NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon pace the Stock Car category.
AARWBA members have selected an All-America Auto Racing Team since 1970.  Drivers selected to the first team will be honored at the 38th annual All-America Auto Racing Team banquet, held Jan. 12 at the Hyatt Regency in Indianapolis. For tickets and other information about the AARWBA All-America banquet, call (818) 842-7005 or write to AARWBA, 922 North Pass Ave., Burbank, CA, 91505.

The Rock Spring Blast presented by Richmond County Tourism slated for February 21-24

Huge annual test session gives drivers a leg up on Knoll Gas Nitro Jam and Summit Pro-Am seasons

Every spring racers travel from across the country to Rockingham Dragway with a definite purpose in mind…to see how their engine combinations and off-season work will pay off once the racing starts for real. The Rock Spring Blast presented by Richmond County Tourism is expected to be one of the largest organized test sessions in the country and will bring drivers from all over the United States and Canada.

“The Rock Spring Blast is a great opportunity for drivers and crew chiefs to see how their off-season work will pay off,” IHRA president Aaron Polburn said. “You can run on the dyno all you want, but you are not ready for the season until you make a few laps on a national event-level prepped racing surface. This event will tell you a lot about where you stand, what you need to work on and what you have done that will be successful.”

The Spring Blast is a four day feast designed with the most ardent gearhead in mind. The top doorslammers in the country will be joined by new and established sportsman cars to give the race fan everything he or she could want. Feb. 21-22 will feature testing in the Pro Stock and Pro Modified classes while all other pro entries will be welcomed to take a shot or two at the racing surface at Rockingham Dragway. Feb. 23-24 will be a free bracket race for all sportsman competitors as well as a Chicago Style race in the professional classes.

“This is what it’s all about, running at this track where we have some of the quickest fields in IHRA history,” Rockingham Dragway owner Steve Earwood said. “This is also the site of the second event on the 2008 Knoll Gas Nitro Jam schedule and our Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am event is tentatively scheduled for the next weekend, so you will do yourself a big favor by getting a few passes under your belt.”, the official website of the Knoll Gas Nitro Jam, secured title sponsorship for the Rock Spring Blast prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Everyone knows the Spring Blast is the top test session in the country,” webmaster Jeff Lee said. “This event is the one everyone keeps their eye on. Last year the drag racing world wanted to see what Scott Cannon had coming for the Pro Mod class in the 2007 season and I remember the anticipation to see Robert Patrick’s Mustang in action. We are proud at to secure our name to this prestigious event.”

Earwood always looks forward to getting a sneak preview of who will be swinging for the fences during the Knoll Gas Nitro Jam season.

“You get to see people dealing with new equipment, refreshed motors and new combinations,” Earwood said. “And this is not just an event to break in new things, it is a chance for the drivers to shake some of the cobwebs off in a very competitive, professional setting.”

Tickets for the Rock Spring Blast presented by Richmond County Tourism will be $20.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids age 6-12. Children under 6 will be admitted free with a paid adult admission. The box office at Rockingham Dragway will also be open during the Spring Blast to sell tickets for the Nitro Jam Spring Nationals, scheduled for April 18-20 at Rockingham Dragway.

Thoughts racing about things to be thankful for ... or not
I’m most thankful for the latest resurgence in drag racing. If ever there truly was a grassroots way to race, this is it. Always was and still is. Even with the megabuck owners and teams putting on the big show, there’s still plenty of room for Jack, Jackie and Mike and Michelle to climb into their cars and race.

Jennifer Greenberg Named RMMRA Rookie of the Year

Eighteen-year-old Jennifer Greenberg, daughter of Top Alcohol Funny Car racer and long time friend Lyle Greenberg, capped a very successful season by winning the Rookie of the Year title at the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association (“RMMRA”) 2007 Awards banquet Saturday night in Denver. Greenberg competed in RMMRA events in Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico during the 2007 season, finishing 4th in the season points championship. Her best main event finish was 2nd at Colorado National Speedway in Denver and she won a preliminary heat race at I-25 Speedway in Pueblo.

“The beginning of the season was tough for my team as we struggled with mechanical difficulties”, said Greenberg. “Fortunately we kept plugging away and started to run ok by the middle of the year. We then ran very well at the end of the year. I have to thank my Dad, Lyle Greenberg, for his commitment to our racing program. There were a few times where the easiest route would have been to park the car, but we continued to push forward all year. In addition, I want to recognize Butch Blackberg, Scott Baron and my sister Rachel for their help all year. I can’t wait to start the 2008 season, though our plans are very uncertain. We have several different opportunities, including stock cars and sprint cars. Hopefully we will know what our 2008 program will be by the first of the year. In the meantime we are preparing our midget to run it when we can.”


Jennifer Greenberg represents marketing partners Amsoil, Cabinet Concepts, SunCo Equipment and Supply, Andrews Motorsports, M&J Signs, Synergy Coatings and TIS Fitness Systems.

In the finals at Phoenix, Zoë took the win light with an .048 light and a 330 foot ET of 4.355 as George's great 4.303 ET and .130 reaction could not quite catch her.
