Shane Tucker has withdrawn from the 2019 Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals this weekend near Phoenix, Arizona. The Australian Pro Stock driver will not be racing at the event due to a delay in the delivery of some badly-needed back-up parts for his Chevy Camaro, according to spokesman Elon Tucker. 

Tucker was planning on racing a full-season. However, he will not be able to do that, as he will miss the second event of the season.

“We found an issue that was hurting the motor,” Tucker said. “We ordered the necessary parts, but just ran out of time before the race at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. We intend to make the race as early as yesterday, but rather than head West and maybe be competitive, we decided to regroup and put our best foot forward at the 50th annual Gatornationals in a few weeks. 

“We plan on doing some testing before then to make sure we are squared away.” 

Tucker is working with his father Rob and engine builder Nick Ferri to be a force in the NHRA Pro Stock category. He has been racing in the NHRA tour since the 2014 season. 

“I am disappointed to miss Phoenix especially since there will be a Pro Stock exclusive Fox broadcast on FS1 after the race,” he said. “Everyone on the team is focused on performing at a high level, but pulling everything together just takes time. I have the highest confidence in my team and crew chiefs that we will be in great shape heading into Gainesville for the Gatornationals.”
