It will be fun seeing if the NHRA's 2012 champions can put up a title fight in 2013. But that's far from the best story heading into the season opener in Pomona this weekend.
Juan Pablo Montoya's jet-dryer crash ... Shoe-gate at Montreal ... Tony Stewart goosing DeLana Harvick ... the brawl at Phoenix. Yes, it was one memorable year in motorsports.
Antron Brown and teammate Jack Beckman pulled through Sunday with championships in Top Fuel and Funny Car, respectively. Emotions on this day were intense.
Top Fuel driver Antron Brown started Sunday with a losing effort and burned hands. He ended the day as the NHRA Top Fuel champion, the first African American driver in history to win a major auto racing title.
Antron Brown understands why his winning an NHRA title -- the first for an African-American -- would be such a big deal, but he doesn't see it that way. He just wants to own that trophy.
Don Schumacher has known greatness as a team owner. He's on the verge of it again as his drivers vie for the Top Fuel and Funny Car titles at Pomona.
NHRA officials gave final approval Monday evening for Don Schumacher Racing to use the new enclosed capsule on Tony Schumacher's Army-sponsored Top Fuel dragster, DSR officials confirmed Tuesday.
If all goes as planned, Don Schumacher Racing will unveil a cutting-edge, enclosed cockpit on two of its Top Fuel dragsters Aug. 16-19 at Brainerd. It's about time, writes Terry Blount.
Antron Brown could become the first driver to ever sweep the NHRA's three-race Western swing twice if he can win on Sunday. And he says winning is his sole focus, not the sweep.
Don Schumacher Racing's all-star Top Fuel lineup of Spencer Massey, Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown ranks 1-2-3 in the NHRA standings. And the bad news is?
Tony Schumacher, the most decorated driver in Top Fuel, hasn't won an event in 17 months. One consolation: The Sarge, winless in his past nine finals, is on top of his game.
Multiple drivers are within striking distance of an NHRA championship in either Top Fuel or Funny Car. Who's got the inside track with two events to go? Well, got a dartboard?
The NHRA Countdown playoffs are set to begin in a little over a week. Top Fuel ace Antron Brown has the momentum, but as past seasons have proven, anything can happen. Terry Blount handicaps it all.
John Force and Cory McClenathan were the big winners on the track in the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, but the biggest winner may be zMax Dragway itself.
Antron Brown called zMax Dragway the Disneyland of drag racing. Welcome to the theme park's marquee ride: four-wide, side-by-side racing at more than 300 mph.
The NHRA has had more than its fair share of fatalities in recent years, but the death of a fan Sunday raises new questions. The NHRA is working feverishly on answers.
