November 27, 2008

On Thanksgiving morning, Matt Krueger will climb into the family car feeling sick, his stomach still tender from 14 skin staples used to close a painfully long incision.

As the family begins a day-long journey headed south, the 19-year-old Wisconsin farm kid won’t feel much like eating the traditional turkey dinner. His appetite is suppressed from the toxic chemicals pumping through his bloodstream.

NHRA Drag Racing’s Tim Wilkerson Looks to 2009

November 26, 2008

Wilkerson looks back with no regrets and looks forward with confidence

Tim Wilkerson may not have won the POWERade world championship, but if there were a people’s champ, he’d surely wear the crown.

Tim Wilkerson came into the 2008 NHRA season with five victories and left the season with 11. He entered the campaign having just come off a 15th-place finish in 2007 but finished the 2008 season in second place after a storybook run. To all who were witnessing this remarkable “arrival,” the Levi, Ray & Shoup driver seemed fully capable of turning everything around, including the startling ability to erase the memory of seven DNQs from the year before by recording absolutely none in 2008. He also improved his round record from a pedestrian 14-16 in 2007 to an astounding 42-18 this year, a mark no other Funny Car driver could match. In the end, though, it was the final day and the ever-so-close but narrowly missed chance at a championship that far too many people remember.

KERRY ALEXANDER TAKES THE ARRC

November 26, 2008


Machavern, Amico & Arnold are Class Champs
 
The American Road Race of Champions was a fitting finale to the 2008 V8 StockCar season.  The cool but clear weather, the incredibly challenging Road Atlanta circuit and thirty five very competitive race teams ensured big noise and big excitement.  Racer’s like California’s Rudy Revak, travelled from all over the country to test the North Georgia track that can quickly humble even the most talented of drivers.
 
After two rounds of qualifying on Friday, former Trans Am competitor and SCCA A Sedan national champ Kerry Alexander stood a top of the overall order at a fast 1:24.8 clocking.  Alexander’s effort was just one tenth off of Jeff Emery’s track record.  Alexander’s ride was the Larry Beebe Racing Mustang prepped and sometime driven by Tony Ave.  In all three Ave Racing race cars were in the top six on the grid.  Bill Smith was second in his winged stockcar with Zach Monette third.
