KAREN STOFFER RETURNS TO ACTION WITH WHITE ALLIGATOR RACING

In her first season with Jerry Savoie’s White Alligator Racing in 2019, Karen Stoffer was happy with the results. She finished a career-best fourth in the points standings on a Suzuki.

“We’re back and we have the same setup, everything is the same (for 2020),” Staffer said. “(Last year’s finish in the points) was probably some of the motivation to come back. We definitely had a good season. I’m hoping to improve upon that. I’m focusing a little bit more on my riding and continuing to support Tim (Kulungian, Stoffer’s crew chief) and anything I can do as a rider to help him be able to tune the bike. Jerry (Savoie, who finished second in the points) obviously had a fantastic year as well and he’s going to be gunning for a championship and anything I can do to assist I will do, but I will still try and win one myself.”

DRAG RACING STUDY GIVES TRUE MEANING TO GROUND-POUNDING

 

The best education isn’t one conveyed in the classroom, but one that’s useful, and applicable, in real-world situations.

That’s what a handful of students from the University of South Carolina have experienced at the past three NHRA national events at zMAX Dragway near Charlotte. Heading up a project to measure the energy produced by nitromethane-powered vehicles is Dr. Tom Owens, a professor at USC’s School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment since 1989. His area of specialty is seismology.

Attempts to measure the seismic effects of drag racing’s top classes isn’t something new, and stories about such things date back at least 15 years. In one account, the National Seismology Center reportedly measured an NHRA event at “1.5 to 2.0 on the Richter Scale.” Another report, published two years later, “measured the movement of the earth with a mobile seismograph” at “an astounding 3.9.”
