Lamb Reflects On 2012 Comp ChampionshipFebruary 13, 2013 · 0 Comments
Justin Lamb had a nice year in 2012. The Henderson, Nevada racer won the Division 7 Championship in Comp Eliminator. Lamb only picked up one win in his home division that year but he consistently went rounds every race. Lamb won the divisional at Top Gun Raceway which was held in Fallon, Nevada. This put him in the lane to win the divisional championship, and also helped him to finish ninth in the world in the Comp Eliminator class.
“It feels great to be divisional champ again,” Lamb said. “I won the title in 2011 and to do it is amazing. The points really mean a lot to my father so it was nice to make him happy.”
Every racer believes in different things for success. Some are superstitious, some are not. Lamb is not one of those. Anybody that follows drag racing knows that Comp Eliminator is a very performance based class. You have to get to the finish line first without going to fast and getting hit by the CIC. You have to have the right setup, and you have to have the right setup consistently.
Lamb got to Sonoma for the NHRA national event , and won in the event in the Super Stock class. “That was my most special race of the year.” Lamb stated. “I ended up winning the event in the Super Stock class. I haven’t won a national in a while up to that race, so it was nice to get back into the winner’s circle there.
Each racer has their keys to success. For Lamb, like most racers, this is a family sport. His family is with him at most, if not all races. Lamb said, “Everything and everyone who has helped me over the years is the key to my success. My wife, and parents are a big part of it. Also V. Gaines has helped me a lot. He is a partner in my racing program. There are so many people and companies that have helped me with this racing opportunity.”
