SCHUMACHER, BROWN RECALL GETTING FIRST NHRA WIN AT MOTORPLEX

ENNIS, Texas (Sept. 1, 2014) – Ask an NHRA driver to name his or her favorite track and more often then not they’ll mention the place they’ve had the most success. The other factor that makes a particular dragway a favorite with the drivers is if he or she managed to snare their first NHRA win there. When it comes to Texas Motorplex, that’s the case for several drivers, including Tony Schumacher, Antron Brown and Bob Vandergriff, just to name a few. When the 29th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals, the second of six races in NHRA’s Countdown to the Championship, takes place at the famed all-concrete track Sept. 18-21, there’s not a chance Schumacher won’t remember his 1999 Top Fuel victory. “Hey, it was my first win ever and that says it all,” said the seven-time NHRA Top Fuel champion who owns five wins at the Motorplex, the [...]

FORCE SISTERS LOOKING TO MAKE HISTORY AT 29th ANNUAL AAA TEXAS AAA FALL NATIONALS

ENNIS, Texas (Aug. 28, 2014) – When your job entails driving super fast cars and your last name is Force it goes without saying that expectations for success are rather lofty. That tends to happen when the reason for those expectations is the legendary John Force, who owns 16 NHRA Funny Car championships and also just happens to be the proud patriarch of drag racing’s most famous and successful dynasty. The fact that the family dynasty consists of all daughters, well, that just makes it all the more remarkable. While oldest daughter Ashley was the first to follow in dad’s footsteps, earning four NHRA Funny Car wins before stepping away from the sport to have a family, Courtney and Brittany are currently making plenty of waves on the racing circuit. And that’s exactly what they hope to continue doing when they take on Texas Motorplex at the 29th annual AAA [...]
