The second Pro Stock driver has withdrawn from the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park near Phoenix, Arizona. Jeff Isbell joins Shane Tucker on the sidelines. 

Isbell, like Tucker, were planning to run all 18-race during the 2019 season. However, now both drivers, will miss the second event of the season.

While Tucker said he’s missing the event due to much-needed parts, Isbell did not say what exactly is causing him to miss the event. He said something came up. 

Despite the loss of both drivers, the NHRA Arizona Nationals still have a full field. If no other driver withdraws from the event, there will be 16 Pro Stock cars. 

In the first event of the season, Erica Enders-Stevens defeated Isbell in the first-round of eliminations at the 59th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California. The Houston, Texas native went 6.517 at 212.39 mph to best the Salt Lake City, Utah native, who did not register a time. 

All four Elite Performance cars — Jeg Coughlin Jr., Erica Enders-Stevens, Alex Laughlin, and Rodger Brogdon — will be in the field. Team Summit will have its five cars in the field in Greg Anderson, Bo Butner III, Jason Line, Deric Kramer, and Fernando Cuadra.  

That’s nine of the 16 cars. KD Racing will have two of the cars in Kenny Delco and Val Smeland. New Jersey native Alan Prusiensky will also be there. 

Matthew Hartford, Joey Grose, Steve Graham, and Chris McGaha are also slated to compete at this event.
