The NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing season always begins here with the O’Reilly NHRA Winternationals from the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, CA. Racers from all around the world arrive with hopes of performing well and at least taking home some memories. The weather played a role this year. Thursday & Friday was near perfect with blue skies and temperatures in the mid-70’s. Pesky rain caused delays Saturday and Sunday but, after moving the Sportsman classes to Monday, the Pro part of the event was completed.
With 22 more races to go in the 2012 Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, Mondays final results were as follows;
TOP FUEL – Spencer Massey, 3.750 sec @ 325.77mph beat Antron Brown, 3.794 sec @ 320.43mph.
STOCK ELIMINATOR – Brad Burton, Kirkland WA, 10.816, def. Don Keen, Palmdale CA, 10.750.
Thanks for the Show!
