Torrence hits Ferre in the face after 2019 NHRA Finals Round 1

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Capco Contractors Top Fuel Dragster pilot Steve Torrence is in the Championship hunt for the second straight year. In his first round matchup, Torrence would advance to Round 2 at the Auto Club NHRA Finals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Pomona, California.

Torrence defeated Cameron Ferre in their 1 vs. 16 matchup. However, before the start of the race, Ferre deep stagged Torrence.

This made Torrence go bunkers after the race. He said, as clear as day on NHRA TV, “if you act like a b*tch, you get treated like a Ferre.”

This led to both men having an altercation at the top end of the track. Things were civil, then Torrence shoved Ferre in the face.

This led Torrence to put up a fist as Ferre went after him. Team Capco had to separate Torrence and Ferre.

“NHRA I hope you’re happy with your potential Mello Yello Champion that has to come out and punch someone that is trying to chase the dream and be just like him,” Ferre said. “I used to be a huge fan of his and I just lost all respect for him. Just because I went in deep … we’re undergunned and I thank Terry [Haddock, team owner] and our sponsored and Strutmasters, Lou Fosz, all these guys, my parents, everybody. We’re out here just trying to do our thing. Just because I went in deep, you have to come out here and punch me? Like I told the Fox Group, I’m just the same size as him. Let’s rattle. He’s from Texas, I’m from HB [Huntington Beach], let’s go. HB Bad Boys, here we come.”
