In this episode, the guys dissect the NHRA points chase following a big weekend of divisional action.  Did you hear that the Top Dragster bump in Bowling Green was 6.342?!?!  That’s not a typo: 6.343 DID NOT get in!  Jed and Luke discuss and get deeper into the 32 vs. 48 car Top Dragser/Top Sportsman debate.  Plus they recapped a busy weekend of bracket action from coast to coast that featured another pair of bottom bulb racers scoring big wins in Top Bulb/Combo events.  All that plus the usual shenanigans: two new “Racer Confidential” stories, Chance from BTE (not from the roof of a motorhome), and shoutouts for days.

In this episode, the guys catch up with Nick Duty fresh off of his big win at the Windmill Nationals.  They discuss his emotional triumph, his life as a track operator who gets to race every once in awhile, and the year of the Chevette.  The NHRA points picture got a little bit clearer after a big weekend of events across the country; and some pockets got a little fatter following a number of big dollar bracket events from coast to coast.

In this episode, Luke & Jed start off talking about ducks, pylons, and kamikaze racers before smoothly transitioning into the week that was in sportsman drag racing - and it was a big one!  They highlight results from the SFG event at Dragway 42, along with the Nightfire Nationals in Boise, ID and big bracket action from Virginia, South Carolina, and Illinois.  Plus they recap the lone NHRA event of the weekend and the points implications attached to it.  The guys closed the show with the first edition of “Racer Confidential” a fun format to tell anonymous (and entertaining) stories about the folks that we (and you) race with!

This episode of the podcast is jam packed with guest appearances from our lead (only) correspondent, JJ Pennington (JJ’s Top 10) and recently crowned World Super Pro Challenge $50,000 winner Chris Stine.  Also:

Are we understating the accomplishments (and greatness) of Justin Lamb?  

The weekend brought a memorable father-son final round (and nearly two)

And it’s the year of the No Box racer and the No Split Final!

In this NHRA heavy episode of the Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast, Luke gets all nerdy talking numbers and details in the NHRA sportsman title chase.  The guys get deeper into the 32 vs. 48 car field debate for the NHRA Top Dragster and Top Sportsman classes.  And the guys introduce a new (to the show) sponsor with a cameo appearance from Chance Lykens of BTE Performance.  They close this week’s show where they opened last week’s episode: on the topic of some nasty turns in the “drama” surrounding the current big dollar bracket scene.
