MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR TEAM

This is our favorite time of the year. It's the time of the year that we get to spend time with our families in the spirit of peace on earth and good will to our fellow man. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. May your blessings be great.

Christmas should be the time that brings out the best in us, although our best days should be everyday we get to live. 

During this special day let's all stop and reflect on the true significance of Christmas, the day we celebrate the birth of Christ. Jesus went on to transform the world, and as individuals we can transform things in our communities and in our circle of friends simply by embracing the spirit of the season.

RACE COMPLETE - NITROUS SUPPLY SUPER NATIONALS, LIONS DRAG STRIP

 

It's race day at the Lions Drag Strip located in Long Beach, Ca. Qualifying is complete, now it's time to begin the process of eliminating down for a winner at the Nitrous Supply Super Nationals, Race 3 of 9 in the Virtual Reality Hot Rod Association. 

It's all fun in fantasy land to get away from the troubles of what is happening in the real world. 

For those new to this fantasy world, this is how it works. The race with the most votes advances to the next round. We had two days of voting to seed the eight-car fields. 

First-round ends tonight at 8 PM EST. 

CAPPS, MILLICAN HEADLINE VIRTUAL REALITY WINNERS FROM LIONS DRAG STRIP

 

Ron Capps loves nothing more than to deliver for his massive fan base. As Santa Claus prepared to embark on his journey to deliver Yuletide cheer around the world, Santa Capps had his sleigh firing on all eight cylinders and delivered a present his supporters have longed for.

Capps scored the TruHarvest Funny Car crown at the Nitrous Supply VRHRA Super Nationals, beating a determined Paul Lee in the final round. The final round was the first for the finalists in the history of the fan-vote series.

Joining Capps was Clay Millican (McLeod Top Fuel), Bruno Massel (Quartermax Pro Stock), Steve Johnson (Denso Pro Stock Motorcycle), and Todd Tutterow (Jerry Bickel Race Cars Pro Modified).

Just how close was the match between Capps and Lee? Ultimately ONE vote decided the win at 6 PM EST, on Christmas Eve.

CHRISTMAS VIDEO TREAT: DRAG RACER, THE MOVIE

As part of our CompetitionPlus.com holiday tradition, we've searched the YouTube.com site for rare and entertaining videos to pass the time during your time away from work.

A MUST WATCH VIDEO - A JOHN FORCE CHRISTMAS

Christmas time is about family, and for one storied drag racer, a metal toy log truck.

Sixteen-time NHRA champion John Force opens his heart about a five-year old's Christmas, and the challenges of growing up poor in the 1950s. This 20-minute video will tug at your heart, and if you are not careful, will have you shedding a tear or five.

A very emotional video where Force talks about his youthful lesson of learning the real meaning of Christmas.

QUALIFYING COMPLETED - VRHRA RACE 3 OF 9, 2020 NITROUS SUPPLY SUPERNATIONALS AT LIONS DRAG STRIP

 

Fire up your computers, call your friends. It's time for the second season of the Virtual Reality Hot Rod Association; the race series created out of a pandemic.

So, how does this work?

Each event features the top 20 finishers of the previous season in a ballot where your votes determine qualifying and race results, and inevitably series championships. Since we are fantasy drag races, we can stage the events at any facility we choose, regardless of whether the track exists or not.

The top eight qualifiers advance to final eliminations, where your votes determine the race winners.

This week we are at the legendary Lions Drag Strip, once located in Long Beach, Ca. 

 

INAUGURAL NITRO CHAOS EVENT SET FOR JULY 2021

Tally up another white knuckle, never been done before drag racing creation from the mind of promoter Chris Graves as the announcement was made in a partnership with Gerald Kramer and Iowa’s Eddyville Raceway Park to host the Inaugural Nitro Chaos event, set for July 30-31st. From the Funny Car Chaos series to the Pro Mod vs. Fuel Altered Showdown event in Texas each summer, Graves adds another unique entertainment minded drag race to the calendar for next year at a facility known for its nitro-themed spectator draw. It’s an all nitro affair and it should be thrilling as the ‘run whatcha’ brung’ format from Funny Car Chaos is carried into this event with only one rule, you must run a minimum of 80% nitromethane in the fuel tank.

“I’ve had this race outlined on paper for a few years, but couldn’t find the time to dive into making it happen," said Graves. "Gerald Kramer (owner of Eddyville Raceway Park) called one day this summer about doing a similar event and thirty minutes later we had a deal. A well-managed facility is critical to an event’s success, and Gerald and his son Kyle and the team at ERP bring years of experience to the table, which made this decision an easy one. We get requests all the time from racers wanting to add a class for their style car to the Funny Car Chaos series, but that takes a lot more than most realize. This event caters to anything, and we mean anything, on nitro. Fuel altereds, Funny Cars, rear engine dragsters, front-engine dragsters, door slammers, whatever. If it's tippin’ 80% or better in the tank, it's game on at Nitro Chaos.”
