Pro Stock returns to the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park this weekend. Harlow-Sammons Pro Stock driver Chris McGaha will attempt to win back-to-back races at this facility.
This was one of two wins on the season for McGaha. He also won the NHRA New England Nationals on July 8th in Epping, New Hampshire.
The Odessa, Texas native went 6.529 at 211.59 mph to claim the Wally. Summit Racing Equipment’s Jason Line was the runner-up after he went 6.538 at 210.14 mph.
This was McGaha’s first win at the facility.
On the entry list, there are 18 Pro Stock cars entered. However, since the entry list closed on Monday, Shane Tucker and Jeff Isbell had to withdraw from competing at this race.
Tucker said he withdrew due to not having much-needed parts. Isbell said that something came up in a social media post, which led to his withdraw from the event.
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.
With 16 Pro Stock cars, every one of them will make the show on Sunday.
The late Bob Glidden has the most wins all-time at this facility in Pro Stock with five. He won in 1990, 1988, 1987, 1986, and 1985.
The current driver with the most wins at the facility is Greg Anderson, who has two wins. He won in 2017 and 2003.
