2023 NHRA MILE-HIGH NATIONALS - EVENT RESULTS
SUNDAY FINAL - WINNERS CROWNED AT THE FINAL NHRA MILE-HIGH NATIONALS BEFORE A SELLOUT CROWD
Funny Car points leader Matt Hagan picked up the victory for Tony Stewart Racing at the final NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series race at Bandimere Speedway, powering past Alexis DeJoria in the final round on Sunday in front of a sellout crowd at the 43rd Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals.
Clay Millican (Top Fuel), Troy Coughlin Jr. (Pro Stock) and Gaige Herrera (Pro Stock Motorcycle) all won the 10th of 21 races during the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season. It was also the third straight sellout crowd to close out racing at Bandimere Speedway.
After winning the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge specialty race on Saturday, Hagan made it a memorable clean sweep on Thunder Mountain, going 4.135-seconds at 304.25 mph in his 11,000-horsepower Dodge Direct Connections Charger SRT Hellcat to defeat DeJoria. It is Hagan’s fourth victory this season and 47th in his career, as well as his second career win at Bandimere Speedway.
Hagan knocked off Chris King and defending world champ Ron Capps to reach the final round, getting past DeJoria – which was the same string of opponents he beat in Denver in 2021 – to finish off a truly incredible weekend for the points leader. At his sponsor’s race, Hagan picked up his 50th No. 1 qualifier, won the specialty race on Saturday and made the final winning run down Thunder Mountain on Sunday.
“I guess I need to go buy a lottery ticket honestly, it's one of those weekends that's just magical,” said Hagan, whose points lead grew to 45 over Capps. “I've been up here close to 15 years racing a fuel Funny Car, and to think that you're not going to come back here – and then walk away with the Wally and the extra special trophy from the Bandimere family, to have the #2Fast2Tasty check, my 50th No. 1 qualifier. Just so many milestones and things to remember.
“It’s amazing and such an emotional weekend. Just being here and seeing all these fans every time we make a run, it’s something I’ll never forget. It’s just a super special weekend and just incredible. I’m very, very blessed to be here.”
DeJoria reached her third final in 2023 and 15th in her career by defeating Chad Green, Cruz Pedregon and J.R. Todd.
In Top Fuel, Millican held off Doug Kalitta in the final round, earning his second victory of the season in his 11,000-horsepower Parts Plus/Rick Ware Racing dragster with a run of 3.872 at 299.60 in the final round. Sunday was only the second time Millican advanced out of the first round this season, but the veteran has won both races he’s done so, picking up his first win earlier this season in Chicago. He replicated that in Denver in front of a massive crowd during eliminations, starting the Western Swing off with his first career victory at Bandimere Speedway.
Millican got past Tony Schumacher, Mike Salinas and Shawn Langdon to reach the final round, scoring his fifth career victory and one that will stand with him for a long time. He also moved to 10th in points.
“When you race Doug Kalitta, you can't leave anything on the table,” Millican said. “Man oh man, what this group has done. We had not won a single round until Chicago. What do we do, we win the race. So when we won first round here, I'm like, we're winning the race.
“It's pretty amazing what (crew chief Jim Oberhofer) has done. When he gets it, he just does it over and over and over. I just can't believe how good this was. It was exactly like Chicago – the only way for me to lose this race was for me to do something wrong. Thank the man upstairs, I didn't do anything wrong. It's just incredible what happens when the first-round win light comes on. You hold a Wally.”
Kalitta, who was seeking his 50th career win, reached his first final round of the year thanks to round wins against Terry Totten, Josh Hart and Steve Torrence. Justin Ashley stayed in the points lead with a 54-point advantage over Torrence.
Like Hagan, Coughlin also swept the final weekend in Pro Stock at Bandimere Speedway, thrilling the capacity crowd on Sunday and defeating points leader Dallas Glenn in the final round with a pass of 6.933 at 196.64 in his JEGS.com Chevrolet Camaro. Coughlin won the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge on Saturday, following it up with a dynamic performance in eliminations, defeating Aaron Stanfield, Greg Anderson and reigning world champ Erica Enders to reach the finals.
He posted an impressive .015 reaction time against Glenn, slipping past him for his second win this season and fourth in Coughlin’s career.
“What an exciting day to come out here and get a win,” Coughlin said. “You just take it one run at a time. We’ve got the best people in the industry at Elite Motorsports. They all work together and we have excellent power. I just had to stay focused. This is one of my favorite facilities and it’s an absolute honor just to be here.
“The fun part of NHRA championship drag racing is the excitement level like that final, that's what packs the stands and makes you come back. You hope for situations like that and you practice all the time and it's an obsession, you love it and you can't stop.”
Glenn reached his sixth final round this year by driving past Chris McGaha, Kyle Koretsky and Camrie Caruso. His points lead stands at 202 over Matt Hartford.
Herrera returned to form on Sunday in Pro Stock Motorcycle, picking up his fourth win of the year on his Vance & Hines/Mission Foods Suzuki with a run of 7.103 at 187.73 to beat Angie Smith in the championship round. After struggling on Friday, Herrera performed at a high level the rest of the weekend, beating Chris Bostick, defending world champ Matt Smith and rookie Chase Van Sant to reach the final round. A. Smith went red in the finals, but Herrera would have been difficult to beat with his second straight run of 7.10 on Sunday.
After a dominant start to the season, the points leader struggled – at least by his standards – in back-to-back races. But Herrera made another strong statement in his first race ever at a packed Bandimere Speedway.
“I’m glad we bounced back here, especially in front of all these fans at Bandimere Speedway,” said Herrera, who now leads Arana Jr. by 219 points. “These fans are incredible and this whole weekend has been amazing. I’m glad I’m able to add my name to the list of people from Vance & Hines who have won here. It was an adjustment for sure, but the bike was running good all weekend. It makes my job a little easier when you have a bike like that.
“To be able to bounce back from (the last two races) here, of all places, it's an amazing feeling. It's a shame to see it go but I'm just glad to put my name as part of the last to ever win here in Pro Stock Motorcycle.”
A. Smith reached the finals for the second time this year and seventh overall by defeating Jianna Evaristo, Eddie Krawiec and No. 1 qualifier Hector Arana Jr.
The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series returns to action July 21-23 with the second race of the famed Western Swing, the Flav-R-Pac NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Seattle.
SATURDAY QUALIFYING - BRITTANY BLASTS HER WAY TO BANDIMERE TRACK RECORD AS HAGAN, ENDERS, ARANA SECURE NO. 1 QUALIFIERS
Bandimere Speedway witnessed a thrilling final qualifying session in its history as Brittany Force showcased an extraordinary performance, setting a track record and securing the No. 1 qualifying effort. In the 10th race of the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season,
Force (Top Fuel) was joined at the top of the leaderboard by Matt Hagan (Funny Car), Erica Enders (Pro Stock), and Hector Arana Jr. (Pro Stock Motorcycle) as the top qualifiers. The event in Denver marked the second consecutive sellout crowd.
Force left the audience in awe during the final qualifying session with a remarkable run. Piloting her 11,000-horsepower Monster Energy dragster, she blazed through Bandimere Speedway, completing the fastest run ever recorded at the track with a pass of 3.724 seconds at 337.33 mph. This extraordinary performance not only set a new track record but also marked Force’s fourth No. 1 qualifier this season and the 46th of her career.
Doug Kalitta secured the second spot in qualifying with a time of 3.779 at 322.42 mph, while Antron Brown secured the third spot with a pass of 3.783 at 327.90 mph.
Reflecting on her exceptional run, Force expressed her pride and love for the racetrack.
“We’re really proud of our run,” Force said. “I love this racetrack, and I’ve been coming here since I was a kid. We want to leave our mark here and to run 337; I’m proud of this entire Monster Energy team. We want to turn on four win lights tomorrow; that’s what we really want to do.”
In the Funny Car category, Hagan rose to prominence with an impressive run on Friday, securing the No. 1 qualifier for the first time this season and the 50th time in his career with a time of 3.895 at 324.59 mph.
Hagan acclaimed his team’s performance.
“I think we’re putting on a pretty good show for Dodge – No. 1 qualifier, 50th No. 1 for me, and winning the (Mission) #2Fast2Tasty Challenge,” Hagan said.
Hagan also expressed gratitude towards his team and shared his confidence for the upcoming race, saying, “Rolling into race day, I feel very, very confident about tomorrow.”
John Force followed closely behind Hagan, securing the second qualifying spot with a time of 3.920 at 323.74 mph from Friday’s run. Tasca claimed the third spot with a time of 3.943 at 315.12 mph.
In the Pro Stock category, Enders moved one step closer to her first career victory on Thunder Mountain. Her pass of 6.919 at 195.70 mph on Friday in her Johnson’s Horsepowered Garage/Melling Performance Camaro landed her the No. 1 qualifier. With this achievement, Enders secured her second No. 1 qualifier this season and the 31st of her career.
Enders expressed her satisfaction, acknowledging the challenges of competing on the mountain track.
“I’m feeling really good,” Enders said. “It’s always challenging to come up here on the mountain. Pro Stock cars, we’re down quite a bit of horsepower, and our shift points come at different increments than normal. Having said all of that, I feel like we performed pretty awesome this weekend, and we’re going to try to continue that tomorrow.”
Matt Hartford, the defending event winner, reserved the second spot with a time of 6.919 at 195.34 mph, closely followed by Dallas Glenn in third place with a time of 6.921 at 195.19 mph.
The Pro Stock Motorcycle category saw Arana Jr. confidently maintain the No. 1 spot due to his record-breaking run of 7.047 at 189.36 mph on Friday, riding his GETTRX Buell. This marked Arana Jr.’s first No. 1 qualifier of the season.
Expressing his excitement, Arana Jr. hailed his bike and the upcoming elimination rounds.
“I feel awesome,” Arana Jr. said. “We have a great bike. Our GETTRX Buell is mean; she’s bad to the bone. We should be good. We’re going to take it one round at a time and enjoy our last passes we get down this beautiful track here at Bandimere Speedway. What an awesome way to end it.”
Rookie Chase Van Sant secured the second qualifying spot with a time of 7.121 at 188.52 mph, while Gaige Herrera, the points leader, moved up to third place with a time of 7.123 at 187.39 mph.

ASHLEY CONTINUES #2FAST2TASTY DOMINATION; HAGAN, COUGHLIN, M. SMITH ADD VICTORIES
Top Fuel points leader Justin Ashley extended his winning streak by claiming victory in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge for the fifth consecutive time. The specialty race, held as part of the 43rd and final Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway, saw Ashley emerge as the champion, defeating Austin Prock in front of a sold-out crowd.
Joining Ashley in victory at the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge were Matt Hagan in Funny Car, Troy Coughlin Jr. in Pro Stock, and Matt Smith in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
Ashley’s victory came after a thrilling final round, where he clocked a time of 3.883 seconds at 313.95 mph in his 11,000-horsepower Phillips Connect/Toyota dragster. This win marks his fifth triumph in the 2023 season, earning him 15 bonus points for the Countdown to the Championship. As the current points leader, Ashley now sets his sights on achieving a third double-up weekend this year.
Reflecting on his success, Ashley expressed his delight at the ongoing dream season he has been experiencing.
“It has been a dream season so far,” Ashley said. “It’s been unbelievable, and we’ll take a win any way we can get it. It’s such a fun event, and it really helps us get ready for raceday. It’s packed here, and the fans are excited.
“You try not to think about the championship this early in the year, but how can you not? These championship points are so critical. Now that we’re at 15, it really is like a dream come true. When they reset the points, everything starts from scratch, but those 15 points are critical. We’re ecstatic with all these Mission #2Fast2Tasty wins.”
Hagan became the fifth different Funny Car driver to secure a win in the specialty race, defeating Bob Tasca III in the finals.
“I think we’re putting on a pretty good show for Dodge – No. 1 qualifier, 50th No. 1 for me, and winning the (Mission) #2Fast2Tasty Challenge,” Hagan said. “It’s so much going on; it’s incredible. It’s just super special. It’s a real emotional day, and I’m proud of my guys, proud of (crew chief) Dickie Venables and all the work they put in. This cannot be done without the team that I have. We have a special team at (Tony Stewart Racing). They just do a great job.
“(Our combination) has proven itself again up here, and I feel like we have a great combo again for tomorrow. Rolling into race day, I feel very, very confident about tomorrow.”
Coughlin Jr. claimed his second victory in the specialty race category, achieving a perfect start with a .000 reaction time in his JEGS.com Chevrolet Camaro to beat a red-lighting Aaron Stanfield.
Coughlin won the first specialty race of the season in Phoenix and picked up the second in front of a capacity crowd in Denver, earning three playoff bonus points and the bonus purse. Coughlin beat points leader Dallas Glenn in the opening round and then got past his Elite Motorsports teammate to finish off a memorable day on the mountain.
“Being triple-zero, that’s not something I’m really set up to be,” Coughlin said. “It’s fun, don’t get me wrong – it’s a cool stat afterwards. But when it clouds up, you just get in there, and you can really crush the tree.
“Winning this gets you into race mode. You win, and it’s exciting, but you almost have to get over it pretty quickly and get back into race mode just like you were this morning. You really have to know when to turn it on and turn it off. It’s mental toughness, but that’s exciting.”
Smith, the defending Pro Stock Motorcycle world champion, displayed his dominance on Thunder Mountain, triumphing over Steve Johnson to take home the victory.
Smith, reveling in his first appearance in the specialty race, took the opportunity to shine. Competing on a new Suzuki bike, he praised the performance improvements and expressed his satisfaction with the result.
“We came up here with a new bike this year, a Suzuki, and I’ve never run one in my whole life up here,” Smith said. “But we made our best time of the weekend last run, and I’m very happy with everything. We’ve got it running better – still not where I want it to be, but we are close to where it needs to be.
“It’s kind of been frustrating because I’ve had Angie in it, I’ve had Jianna (Evaristo) in it, I’ve had Chip Ellis in it, but I was never in it. I had everybody around me in it, but I never got to be in it. So for me to get in it and win it on the first time is pretty good.”
The elimination rounds for the 43rd and final Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals will begin on Sunday at 11 a.m. MT at Bandimere Speedway, promising an exciting conclusion to the event.

FRIDAY QUALIFYING - SELLOUT CROWD SEES HAGAN, BROWN, ENDERS & ARANA JR. GRAB DENVER PROVISIONAL NO. 1 SPOTS
Matt Hagan, the current Funny Car points leader, came close to breaking a track record on Friday at the 43rd annual and final Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway. With a sold-out crowd in attendance, Hagan secured the provisional No. 1 qualifier position, thrilling fans and setting the stage for an exciting weekend of racing.
Hagan, piloting his 11,000-horsepower Dodge Direct Connections Charger SRT Hellcat, blazed down the track with a time of 3.895-seconds at 324.59 mph. This stellar run not only positioned Hagan for his first No. 1 qualifier spot of the season but also marked his monumental 50th career No. 1 spot. With the race being sponsored by Dodge, Hagan expressed his gratitude for the support and promised the fans an unforgettable show.
“It’s a lot going on in there, but Dickie Venables is a hell of a crew chief,” Hagan commended. “That’s what we’re supposed to do. It’s a Dodge race and we’ve got the car in the No. 1 spot. We want to keep that up and see what we can do tomorrow. A big thank you to all the fans that came out here today and this weekend. It’s such an emotional weekend, but we’re going to put on a heck of a show for these fans."
Hagan also reveled in the power of his car, expressing his excitement about coming so close to resetting the track record. He expressed gratitude for every lap and every moment on the track, emphasizing his determination to make them count this weekend.
In the Top Fuel category, Antron Brown emerged as the provisional No. 1 qualifier with a lightning-fast run of 3.783 at 327.90 mph in his 11,000-horsepower Matco Tools/Toyota dragster. This marks Brown's second top qualifier of the year and the 51st in his illustrious career. The dust at Bandimere Speedway couldn't contain Brown's stellar performance as he electrified the capacity crowd, leaving them in awe.
Brown acknowledged the unique challenges posed by the mountain track and celebrated the power of his run. "Everything is different on the mountain," he explained. "When you leave the starting line, you know don't have the power you do at all the other tracks we go to. But that run there, it felt real good. We got to half-track, and I felt that thing was lit on all eight (cylinders), and I felt it arch up, and I was like, oh, we're on a run. I looked at the scoreboard and saw that 3.78 and I said, oh, there we go. That's the run we've been looking for."
Doug Kalitta and Steve Torrence claimed the second and third spots in Top Fuel qualifying, setting the stage for an intense battle on the track.
In Pro Stock, Erica Enders dominated the qualifying rounds, delighting the crowd with her outstanding run of 6.919 at 195.70 mph in her Johnson's Horsepowered Garage/Melling Performance Chevrolet Camaro. The defending world champion is aiming for her second No. 1 qualifier of 2023 and her first-ever victory at Bandimere Speedway. Enders expressed her satisfaction with the progress she and her team have made, overcoming early-season struggles and positioning themselves for a strong performance this weekend.
“It’s definitely better off than where we started the season,” Enders noted. “We knew if we put our heads down and went to work, nobody could hold us down for too long. This mountain has been a true challenge and continues to be. We have never won here, and that obviously is our goal this weekend. There’s a lot of tough competition, but we’re off to a good start, and tonight we’re on the pole. It's super challenging up here on the mountain, but I'm really excited for our performance so far."
The second and third positions in Pro Stock qualifying went to Matt Hartford and Dallas Glenn, respectively, setting up a fierce battle on the mountain track.
Hector Arana Jr., fresh off his Pro Stock Motorcycle victory in Norwalk, continued his winning streak, smashing the track elapsed time (E.T.) record with a blazing run of 7.047 at 189.36 mph on his GETTRX Buell. Arana Jr., currently second in points, showcased his prowess and displayed his enthusiasm for the sport, leaving spectators awestruck.
“The second I popped the clutch, it smacked me in the butt, and I knew we were going to make a killer run,” Arana Jr. exclaimed. "I thought we could go in the 7.00s, and we went deep in the 7.00s. That was just an awesome, awesome run, and I'm just so excited to be able to run that number. To get that (timing) ticket, I
feel like there's a little more left in it, so we'll see what we can do."
Rookie Chase Van Sant is currently qualified second with a 7.121 at 188.52, and Angie Smith is third after going 7.133 at 189.42.
Qualifying continues at 2:30 p.m. MT on Saturday at the Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.
