Pro Stock driver Alan Prusiensky is taking a break. He announced the decision on Thursday night on his Facebook page.
He said he’ll miss the NGK NTK NHRA Four-Wide Nationals this weekend at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina. Also, he’s re-evaluating his program.
“Just a quick update,” he said in a Facebook post. “Both of our cars will not be running at zMAX (zMAX Dragway) this weekend. At this time we think (we should sit) out and re-evaluate our program and see how we continue in the future. (As) soon as we make a decision, Christine and I will let everybody know. Thank you for the continuous support that you guys have given us through the years.

“I know (as) soon as all the naysayers read this, we’ll be hearing how a HEMI can’t run at 10500. Please do not post anything about why we are not fast enough to compete, please. Thank you.”
Prusiensky did not qualify for the 40th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Southern Nationals two weeks ago at the final national event at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. He was the 19th qualified driver in Pro Stock.
Prusiensky went 6.689 at 206.57 mph in the last national event. John Callahan, who drove Prusiensky’s second car at the final Atlanta national event, qualified 20th with a 7.297 at 184.25 mph.
