K&N SPRING FLING COMES TO A PRESTIGIOUS CONCLUSION

 

Day Last of the K&N Spring Fling GALOT presented by Optima Batteries was upon us and it was a sort of weird event.

What was originally scheduled as four separate races paying $15K-$25K-$100K-$25K to the winners had to be curtailed when Mother Nature threatened to intervene. As has been reported in earlier race results, the entire purse from the two $25K races were combined and paid $50K to one winner who ended up being Josh Luedke from Boonville, Indiana. Due to heavy storms on Thursday, that race was completed yesterday after which the Strange Engineering Friday $100K race began.

Because of the late start on that race, only one round along with the buyback round was completed last night with the balance of the rounds completed today.d.

STEVE COLLISON: THE MAN WHO LOVED DRAG RACING TO DEATH

01_22_2010_collisonGifted writer, talented photographer, innovative editor – Steve Collison was all of that and so much more.

He passed away at age 54 nearly a decade ago, on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2000, fittingly while hard at work at his desk, pounding out the latest issue of Drag Racing USA.

Collison, who was inducted into the Drag Racing Hall of Fame in 2003, left behind a legacy as one of the premier photojournalists in drag racing history. More important were the relationships he forged with others in the industry – photographers, writers, manufacturers, and, especially, racers. With him, it was always about the racers. Collison – "Stevie" to his friends – may have been on a first-name basis with every pro driver in the sport, but he valued his relationships with no-name little guys at least as much.

JEGS ALLSTARS COMPETITION WILL TAKE PLACE AT PRESTIGIOUS U.S. NATIONALS IN 2020

The JEGS Allstars competition, one of the most intense NHRA Sportsman competitions of the year, will take place this year at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. The special event, originally scheduled to take place at its traditional site at the NHRA Route 66 Nationals, was moved after that event had to be canceled for this season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have the most prestigious Sportsman race of the year at the most historic track on our sport’s biggest stage,” said Scott “Woody” Woodruff, JEGS Director of Media & Motorsports. “Having the JEGS Allstars race as part of the NHRA U.S. Nationals is huge for everyone involved. We know the racers, sponsors, crew members, families, and fans will all be excited for the JEGS Allstars race more than ever this year.
