ENCORE - HOW PRO GAS REVOLUTIONIZED NATIONAL EVENT SPORTSMAN RACING

The indexed-pro tree classes competing in NHRA’s Super classes weren’t always part of the regular menu of sportsman drag racing. In fact, before 1980, it didn’t exist on the national scene.

Many consider the “Super” style of racing as one style which revolutionized sportsman drag racing. This style of heads-up sportsman racing can be traced back to 1971.

On a sunny day in March 1971, promoter Dave Dorman sat down with his tech officials at Redding Dragway.

ENCORE: REMEMBERING MODIFIED ELIMINATOR

In the 1970s, there was no mistaking this sound. The high-winding, heaving flywheel grinding, gear-jamming symphony made up the orchestra of Modified eliminator. Called blue-collar class racing, Modified thrived in NHRA competition until it was disbanded and divided between Competition and Super Stock. This informative CompetitionPlus.tv video,  tells the Modified story through the eyes of Mike Edwards, Vinny Barone, David Nickens, Gene Fulton and Jerry Coley.

INAUGURAL SOUTHERN SPORTSMAN SHOWDOWN TO SPOTLIGHT STOCK AND SUPER STOCK RACERS

A trio of drag racers with roots deeply entrenched in the Sportsman ranks have come together to put on a spectacular, three-day event catering solely to Stock and Super Stock racers. The unique Johnson's Horsepowered Garage Southern Sportsman Showdown is the brainchild of veteran Sportsman racers Dave Connolly, Jason Line, and Bo Butner. The Stock and Super Stock extravaganza is scheduled to take place March 19-21, 2021 at South Georgia Motorsports Park.
 
"We're so excited about this. It is truly an event made for racers by racers," said Butner, who has competed successfully in a variety of Sportsman and Professional categories for over two decades. "All three of us – Dave Connolly, Jason Line, and myself – we have roots in Sportsman racing, so this means a lot to us," continued Butner. "We want to put on the most awesome race for these Stock and Super Stock guys. They deserve it, and we're going to treat them right, feed them right, and make sure they have a good time."

‘FLINGS’ ADD LOHNES, PERIVOLARIS, AND LAZZARI FOR 2021

The Spring and Fall Fling Race events, a brainchild of Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel in 2010, are gearing up for a busy 2021. Brian Lohnes, NHRA Announcer, will join Nate Hirschi in 2021 at three of the four ‘Fling’ events.
 
“Listening to Brian call a drag race reminds me of the days of the great Bob Frey," said Biondo. “His voice mirrors his passion for the sport and his knowledge is off the charts.” Cars have always been part of Lohnes' life growing up and he looks forward to the opportunity. “Peter and Kyle have done such an amazing job building The Fling brand that it's a big honor to be a small part of it in 2021," added Lohnes. “I have long loved working with Nate, Mike, and the rest of the squad that I will be with at these events, so saying yes to the invite was a no-brainer. I love every form of drag racing I have ever come across and the high stakes nature of this competition gives it a totally different feel from other facets of the sport. I'm looking forward to the action already." Mike Eames will finish off the 'Fling' star-studded announcing staff by teaming up with Nate Hirschi at the Spring Fling Million at Las Vegas in late March.
