Normally when Terry Haddock Racing shows up to an NHRA race, he has both his Funny Car and Top Fuel Dragster in tow. However, when he shoes up this weekend, Haddock will not have the Top Fuel Dragster with him.
As a result, Cameron Ferré will have to watch the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis from home. He would love to be suited up and in the cockpit of the dragster; however, the coronavirus has caused a change of plans.
“I’ve had a lot of people ask about my racing plans over the next few weeks so I thought I’d fill you all in. It pains me to say, but unfortunately, I won’t be at the race in Indy this weekend. As we all know, life looks a lot different these days, which has had a significant impact on many racing teams plans, including mine. We race on a shoe string budget and due to these trying times of the pandemic and cuts all around, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to sit out the next few races with the dragster. This does not mean I am finished racing Top Fuel. No way! I’m confident I will be back doing what I love so much sooner than later.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Terry and team for continuing to believe in my dreams and giving me the opportunities they have. I’d also like to thank the current partners I do have that keep the dream alive, big or small. It takes a village and I’m most grateful for you all. Until I get back, best of luck to Haddock Racing (in the funny car) and the rest of the NHRA family. Stay safe, and like my good pal Clay Millican says, “I’ll be stomping on that loud pedal soon!”
Ferré has attempted to qualify for two races this season. He was only successful in one attempt, as he was 17th at the NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.
In February, Ferré failed to qualify with a 14.887 at 44.61 mph.
The California native did qualify for the season-opener Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com. He qualified 13th with a 4.321 at 208.65 mph pass before being eliminated by Austin Prock in the first-round.
