Sheikh Beats All for Arabian Drag Racing Championship

DOHA, QATAR (Feb. 27, 2010) – In one of the most remarkable rookie seasons ever for a professional race car driver, Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al-Thani of Qatar has won the Arabian Drag Racing League’s 2009-’10 Pro Extreme championship. Driving a 3,000-horsepower, supercharged 1968 Camaro tuned by legendary American drag racer Frank “Ace” Manzo, Al-Thani, 23, qualified first four times and won three of seven events on his way to securing the series title.

Still, entering Round 7 this weekend at the Qatar Racing Club, Al-Thani was joined by defending series champion Von Smith and fellow American Alex Hossler as drivers with a mathematical shot at winning the championship.

When Hossler ousted Smith from the semi-finals, it left Al-Thani facing Bader Ahli of the United Arab Emirates in perhaps the pivotal match-up of his young driving career. The Sheikh didn’t disappoint, running low time and top speed of the event with a 3.71-seconds blast at 207.27 miles per hour over the eighth-mile distance to advance and secure the 2009-’10 Arabian Pro Extreme Championship.

“We were well aware of the different possible outcomes of the points race,” Al-Thani said later. “But we knew the best approach to situations such as these is to rely only on our capabilities and not the actions of others. Winning the race would mean winning the championship, so that was our goal from the start of the event.”

Al-Thani capped the accomplishment with the race win over Hossler, who was disqualified for leaving too soon in the final round.

In victory lane, Al-Thani also received the Arabian Drag Racing League Driver of the Year award and Manzo, a 12-time Top Alcohol Funny Car world champion and 101 national event winner, was named Crew Chief of the Year.

“I couldn’t be happier for him,” Al-Thani said of Manzo. “It was great to see his big smile after we got back to the pits and see the excitement on everyone’s face. It was a big moment, and I believe it is only the beginning for this Al-Anabi Racing team.”

Also joining Al-Thani as an Arabian Drag Racing League champion was his Al-Anabi Racing teammate, Khalid Al-Balooshi, who backed up his 2009 American Drag Racing League Pro Nitrous championship after taking the win in the Qatar Pro Nitrous final over New Yorker Mike Castellana.

"This has been a tremendous season for the Arabian Drag Racing League, one that stands out for its record-setting performances and growth as a series," Kenny Nowling, president and CEO for both the American and Arabian Drag Racing Leagues, said. "I congratulate all the race winners and champions and thank them for providing us with memories to last a lifetime."

Battle of Top Fuel Titans at State Capitol Raceway

Massey returns to take on Lagana, Litton and Cox

NORWALK, Ohio (February 25, 2010) – At the season opening Palm Beach Nitro Jam at Palm Beach International Raceway last month underdog Bobby Lagana Jr. bested the last three IHRA World Champions to stun the field and take home the Top Fuel crown both nights.

In a little over a week Lagana and his team of "giant killers" will get an opportunity to repeat that feat at the Mardi Gras Nitro Jam March 6-7 at State Capitol Raceway in Baton Rouge.

"We took these guys down once already, it will be interesting to see if we can keep that momentum going in Baton Rouge," said Lagana. "All I know is right now this car is an absolute animal and we should be a contender next week and hopefully the rest of the year."

Bruce Litton produced the fastest pass so far this year at Palm Beach International Raceway.

But it won't be easy.

For the second time this season 2008 IHRA World Champion and 2009 NHRA Rookie of the Year Spencer Massey will return to the cockpit of the brand new Mitch King-owned Top Fuel dragster alongside defending World Champion Del Cox Jr. and 2007 champ and winner of this race one year ago Bruce Litton to set up an identical battle of Top Fuel royalty.

Lagana, the proverbial David against a team of Goliaths, will have to be on top of his game to best the last three IHRA Top Fuel World Champions who will all be gunning to knock him from the top.

"I am really looking forward to Baton Rouge. We had a lot of fun down there last year and we finished runner-up to Bruce in a great race," said Lagana. "It is fun to be the underdog, especially when you are able to beat so many incredible competitors like we did in Florida. I greatly respect every one of these guys and I enjoy racing against them.

"But when you really think about, my little team going up against all these world champions and to be able to be competitive, that is a pretty cool deal."

Spencer Massey returns to the cockpit of the Mitch King Motorsports Top Fuel dragster at Baton Rouge.

While Lagana produced solid runs both nights in Florida, both Cox and Massey had trouble battling the quarter-mile earlier this year as did Litton who was halted by mechanical issues Saturday night.

"We broke the front end Saturday night and had an issue with one of our other runs, but we showed what this car is capable of on Friday with the quickest and fastest pass of the weekend," said Litton. "Now we just need to put that all together into four solid runs and we should be able to have a big weekend.

"We won this race last year so we know what it takes to get down this track, we just have to make sure all the pieces come together."

Litton and Cox filled the final round positions Friday and Saturday night respectively alongside Lagana, but neither could get around the POW/MIA dragster of Lagana.

"We had all kinds of problems at Palm Beach which is not like this team at all. Spencer and I both ran into some issues, but we will get those problems fixed and be ready for Baton Rouge," said Cox.

Bobby Lagana proved nearly unbeatable at Palm Beach Nitro Jam earlier this year.

The only person who didn't have a round win at Palm Beach was Massey who returned to IHRA competition for the first time in a little over a year after running his way to a sixth place finish with the NHRA in 2009.

"It was frustrating not being able to get down the track like we wanted to, but we will get that worked out. Del and I have a great crew working on these cars so I am not really worried about it," said Massey. "I just have to thank Mitch and IHRA for everything. I enjoy running over here and I look forward to running a few more races with Mitch and the team this year."

Can Lagana keep his win streak alive? Will Massey return to championship form? Can Litton and Cox return to their dominating ways?

Find out March 6-7 at State Capitol Raceway's Mardi Gras Nitro Jam.

High Speed Motorsports Ready for March Meet

02/24/2010 Anaheim, CA. Even with bad weather shortening testing, the High Speed Motorsports team and their new driver, Brad Thompson, are ready to win their first March Meet. The talent runs deep in this camp as the HSMS team was the 2008 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series Top Fuel Champions and Thompson, in his own car, was the 2007 champ.

Thompson, who was looking at having to park his car for at least part of the 2010 season, jumped at the chance to take over the seat of the potent HSMS fueler after Troy Green announced he was pursuing other ventures. Said Thompson, "Running one of these cars is more than a little expensive and I simply did not have the resources to race how I wanted. This team has the backing and equipment to repeat as champions and I'm proud to be part of it."

Crew Chief Brett Johansen is chomping at the bit to get the season under way. "We had some bumps in the road last year but we feel they are behind us now. Over the winter the car went to Dyda Race Eng. for a new body that is 18 pounds lighter than the old one. We've restocked our arsenal of parts and pretty much kept our winning team in tact.  Brad is an excellent driver so we see no learning curve either way. He'll be just fine."

According to Team Manager Tom Shelar, "Bringing Brad on board not only netted us an experienced driver but also expanded our support from SilverThin Bearings, and RMS Medical to include LG Bless and ProMotive. To me, that's a win win."

The 52nd March Meet will be contested at the Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield on 05/10 to 07/10. If you come out the team invites you to stop by their pit to meet Brad and pick up a cool handout. For more info visit the HSMS website. High Speed Motorsports

All printed tickets will also have the option of upgrading to reserved seating status and pre-purchasing premium parking at a discounted rate.

“This is another service our fans have been clamoring for,” Fortune stated. “With our new reserved seating option they won’t have to worry about losing their seats or not having a seat and advance premium parking will make it easier and faster to get in and out of each venue.

“ADRL is all about grass roots racing and grass roots marketing,” he continued. “We are now taking it to the next level by using the Internet to provide easy access for our fans, teams and sponsors. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to comfortably enjoy the ADRL and the fantastic show our racers put on at every event.”

The ADRL’s new online ticket service arrives just in time for the 2010 season-opening ADRL Universal Technical Institute Dragpalooza VI presented by Safety-Kleen Mar. 19-20, at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas.

Virginia Motorsports Park adds Chevy Extreme Nitro for Super Chevy Show event


KANSAS CITY (Feb. 24, 2010) – As if the 30th anniversary season of the Super Chevy Show series isn't exciting enough, Virginia Motorsports Park is going to feature a new nitromethane-burning class during its show in 2010.

Virginia Motorsports Park will play host to a Super Chevy Show for the 15th time April 16-18 in Petersburg, Virginia. It will be the second of 10 national events on the Super Chevy Show schedule in 2010.

The track's newest category – the Chevy Extreme Nitro class – will be an eight-car shootout of nitro-burning Chevy vehicles.

Virginia Motorsports Park's Bryan Pierce said he thinks the Chevy Extreme Nitro class will quickly become a fan favorite.

"We have such a rich history with the Super Chevy Show and we can't think of a better way of adding even more entertainment to the event than by adding nitro-burning hot rods," Pierce said. "You won't have to be a die-hard Chevy fan to love this racing class, but we know the loyal Chevy fans will really enjoy the thundering speed the category will add to the weekend."

Pierce said the track also wanted to help make the swap meet a more enjoyable experience for the participants. For the first time, swap meet participants will be able to reserve their spot online in advance.

"Participants can go online, pick out a space, purchase it and know exactly where they are going to be without having to get here real early in the morning during the Super Chevy Show weekend," Pierce said. "We worked with participants and tried to figure out a way to make the weekend even better for them and this was one of the biggest requests."

Participants can go online at starting at 8 p.m. (EST) on March 16 to reserve a Swap Meet spot.

"We are thrilled about being able to celebrate the 30th year of Super Chevy Show by hosting an event here for the 15th time and we think this will be our best event yet," Pierce said. "Our fans, vendors, racers, sponsors and participants are all excited about the April event and how the new owners of the Super Chevy Show have worked with everyone to figure out how to make the series even better."

Check out for more information on the 30th anniversary season of the Super Chevy Show series.
