(6-13-2012) Kernersville, NC – For the first time ever, Doug Winters and the Winters Racing team will field an entry at an NHRA event. They will be taking their Lucas Oil / MAVTV ’57 Chevy Pro Mod to compete at the Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in the Pro Mod Series by ProCare Rx this coming weekend. Over many years of racing, dating back to the early 1990s, Winters Racing has competed in series like IHRA, ADRL, and Super Chevy Shows to mention a few. But this is the first time they will take the tree at an NHRA national event. “We are so excited to be going to Bristol to compete at an NHRA national event,” stated Doug. “This has been a long time in the making. With the help of Lucas Oil and MAVTV we were able to invest in our car to upgrade it to meet the rules for NHRA Pro Mod. We still have some work to do on the performance side. We have not ran quarter mile events very often since back in the day with IHRA and Super Chevy Shows. So we have a steep learning curve ahead of us, but we are up to the challenge.”
Even though this is the first time that Winters Racing has entered an NHRA event, this is not the first time Doug has driven at one. “When NHRA added Pro Mod in 2001, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to drive for Dave Wood and the AMS ’57 Chevy. That was a fun time. Bringing Pro Mod to NHRA at that time was very exciting. It was new to everyone including the fans. I’m happy to see it still around with NHRA and happy to be able to return and compete in my own car.”
If you are at the track this weekend, please stop by and give them your support. If you can’t make it to Bristol, you can keep track on Doug’s performance this weekend on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.
As always, Winters Racing would like to thank it’s partners, Lucas Oil, MAVTV, Optima Batteries, Mickey Thompson Tires, NGK Spark Plugs, Gates, King Engine Bearings, Hedman Hedders and Jet Hot High Performance Coatings.
Mar 11, 2014 0Good winter day DC readers! My goodness what a tough and long ‘off’ season it has been. I’m 42 years old and although I didn’t keep up with the weather as a youngster, I am 97.29% sure this is the hardest winter I’ve seen. Snow and ice are a drag racer’s enemy and we’ve had […]
