Soon the Hedman Performance Group will celebrate its 65th anniversary.
At this weekend's NHRA Southern Nationals the brand will be on grand display emblazoned on the side of the 330-mph Top Fuel dragster driven by third-generation Vandergriff and Rookie of the Year candidate Jordan Vandergriff.

With its 2019 season starter postponed two weeks due to rain, the South East Gassers Association (SEGA) finally opened with a sold-out show Apr. 27, at Shadyside Dragway. An announced crowd of 2,800 fans packed the historic eighth-mile facility in Shelby, NC, to watch nearly 60 entries (though more than 80 were on the grounds) do battle in four official SEGA classes.
When the clutch dust finally settled, visiting the Shadyside winner's circle were Alan Gaulden in A/Gas, Tim Bailey in B/Gas, Tim Hall in C/Gas, and Mark Hackett as the first official winner of the new-for-this-year Super Stock division.

Eight-time NHRA Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher isn't ready to close the chapter of his life story where he races at the highest level for championships. However, he's not opposed to seeing what the future can hold.
Schumacher, sidelined for the foreseeable future as Don Schumacher Racing hunts for a major sponsor, doesn't mind looking ahead at the other options.
Last weekend at zMax Dragway, Schumacher was wired up as part of the FoxSports television crew as a pit reporter for the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide broadcast.
