2011 O'Reilly Winternational Winners

 

 

Congratulations to Jason Line who returned from back surgery, to take the Wally in Pro Stock at the O'Reilly Winternationals. The Summit Racing Pontiac ran a 4.529 @ 211mph, to beat Greg Stanfield with a losing 6.595 - despite Greg being 2/100ths quicker off the line. Top Fuel Funny Car was won with a holeshot by Robert Hight; in a fiercely contested race with Matt Hagan. Hight's better reaction & 4.056 run - enough to see off the faster pass by Hagan. Morgan Lucas was facing his team-mate Sean Langdon, for the Top Fuel title. His tidy pass of 3.835 seconds @ 316 mph was easily enough to take the win, but the Lucas Oils Team are looking very strong with 1st & 2nd at the Gatornationals...

 

 

Historic NHRA win For Micke Gullqvist

 

Many of us have been following the European Racers competing in the USA with great interest. One driver who has certainly been making a name for himself in the NHRA is Micke Gullqvist. The Swedish Pro Modified racer has been competing in Roger Burgess' Blown Methanol Pro Mod Camaro to great effect, consistently running 5.8 second passes. Opposite we see Micke in the Semi Finals at Gainseville where he went on to take the Wally...and become the first European to do so. Congratulations Micke.

FIA Top Fuel - Las Vegas

The FIA Drag Racing Series may be over, but many of Europe's top drives are now in the USA, competing in the NHRA. Stig Neergaard, Thomas Nataas, Lex Joon and Urs Urbacher all competed Top Fuel in Las Vegas last week. With All but Lex qualifying for Sunday's eliminations.

The pick of the qualifying runs coming from Thomas, as he took the superb Lars Goran Ericsson built Lucas Oils Dragster, into the top six. See opposite Thomas and Stig going head to head in Vegas.

As if we didnt know how wonderfully mental Partick and his team were - they've kindly put this video together to remind us. This is a parody of their team boss after round 1 of FIA Pro Mod Qualifying at the Finals, when Mats Ericsson had just broken the 5 second barrier.. Please note - this clip contains bad language.
