At this moment, it isn't a return to their former championship-winning stomping grounds. We hear Jason Line will likely be racing at the NHRA U.S. Nationals in one of the marquee sportsman showcase events. Apparently, he's racing in a Super Stock/AH entry. Line does have significant ties to the division, so this isn't exactly an unbelievable rumor.

One of the more interesting rumors floating around Sonoma Raceway has been a pending sale of Don Schumacher Racing's fuel operation. We are told the sale could be finalized today with one of the entities already involved with the team. If this deal is secured, Tony Schumacher will remain as the team's driver. The rumor gained more legs when it was mentioned on the Fox Broadcast on Sunday.

Word has it that Bachelorette-star Jordan Vandergriff will soon be married to a Top Fuel dragster. We are told he will be aligned with a crew chief who has championship and milestone experience, but nothing is official. Rumors suggest the team is gunning for a U.S. Nationals debut. They reportedly haven't made it to the track yet but parts are being purchased.

This is the kind of news we like. The rumor mill is churning in certain circles, and the talk seems to be around a Comp Eliminator race who plans to give Top Fuel a try. From what we hear, this racer could put in about five races this season, with a possible debut at the NHRA U.S. Nationals over the Labor Day weekend. We'd float the name out there but there are some details which need to be worked out before its a done deal.

From what we hear from reliable sources, the NHRA's schedule will take on a new look in 2023, at least from the start. We are told NHRA will begin the season at Gainesville in March before heading to the west coast for Phoenix, Pomona, and Vegas. With rising fuel costs, the game plan allows the teams to test on the east coast before the season-opener and then head west.

The absence of Route 66 Raceway from the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series creates a big void in the Chicago market. We are told the NHRA's Div. 3 sportsman event scheduled on the weekend of August 5 - 7, 2022, is a test run for possibly returning the stadium-style facility to the big show. Unfortunately, this return is not likely to happen before 2024, but things can change quickly.
