Before last month, veteran NHRA Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson had never been to an NHL hockey game.
Now, he has been to a couple and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Johnson’s most recent NHL adventure came Jan. 24 when he attended a Nashville Predators home game against the Buffalo Sabres at Bridgestone Arena.
Johnson was in attendance as part of a promotion giveaway from Marathon Petroleum Corporation – the primary sponsor on his Dodge.

Fan-favorite NHRA Top Fuel driver/owner Terry McMillen is optimistic 2017 will be his best year yet on the national circuit.
“We are starting out the year with a new front half/back half DSR chassis,” McMillen said. “It’s a good car and everything is right about it. We just had to put some new tubing underneath it and I think it’s going to be great. Looking forward, with the items that we changed the last four races of the year (in 2016), the car started picking up. Even though that car didn’t want to 60-foot at all, the first car prior to Houston was a good car and that thing would 60-foot, but didn’t have what this car has. I think now we have the combination. We started running a few more 70s and we just need to get the thing to run 72, 73 down the track all the time and put ourselves with an opportunity to go win.”

For the last few years, T.J. Zizzo has competed on a limited NHRA Top Fuel schedule.
Zizzo confirmed to CompetitionPlus he will be doing a handful of races in 2017, but he’s not happy with the state of the sport – especially for part-time teams.
