Just two short years ago if you had of told, then NHRA Top Alcohol Drivers, John Bojec and Diana Harker, that a Nitro Funny Car was in their future you would have heard them laugh and reply ‘in our wildest dreams’.
Its been 40 plus years that veteran racer Steve Harker has been competing in the ultra competitive sport of drag racing and in 2014 Harker finally lived his dreams of winning the coveted title of NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car World Champion. Making history, Harker is the first non-north American to win the title and the first in the categories history to win five NHRA National events in a row.
Performance parts retailer Speed City has officially announced their commitment to a three race Nitro Funny Car program in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. The Speed City NHRA campaign will debut at the NHRA Nationals in Reading, Pennsylvania October 3-5.
From Top Qualifier to Event Winner, Steve Harker swept the Top Alcohol Funny Car Class in his Speed City-CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Motor Oil and new sponsor, Crane Trucking, Monte Carlo at this past weekend’s Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, July 3-6 in Norwalk, Ohio.
