There's no doubt drag racing down in Australia is very entertaining.

The Outlaw Fuel Altered Association, presented by Good Vibrations Motorsports and Lone Star Forklift, charged into San Antonio Raceway on Saturday, June 3rd with twelve cars on the property set to rock the grandstands in the Alamo City. This was only the second points race of the season after a rainout in May and Donny McSwain's "Wild One" held the points lead coming in hot after his win at the season opener in April.

The pace Jonnie Lindberg keeps falls in line with what you might expect from someone who gets their thrills driving a 325-plus mph Funny Car.
But that torrid pace also matches up with how quickly success has come his way over the past three seasons.

Putting together a winning streak in the ultracompetitive Top Alcohol Funny Car category requires a fast hot rod, the ability to adapt to different conditions, mistake-free performance from the entire team, a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of Know How. John Lombardo Jr. and the NAPA Filters/Lucas Oil Chevrolet Camaro team have had all of those during three consecutive victories that have Lombardo atop the NHRA Lucas Oil championship standings for the first time this season.
Coming off wins at the Lucas Oil Series West Region event at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (April 7-9) and the Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals presented by Minties (May 19-21), Lombardo was eager to return to Route 66 Raceway near Chicago for Lucas Oil Series North Central Region competition on June 2-4. The facility with stadium seating had been host to career highlights such as winning the prestigious JEGS Allstars special even during consecutive seasons in 2014 and 2015.
