Matt Hagan roared to victory in the Funny Car class during the season-opening NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona on Sunday.
Reigning NHRA Top Fuel champion Brittany Force escaped serious injury after a hard crash in the first round of Sunday’s final eliminations at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
Brittany Force is set to return to Auto Club Raceway at Pomona just three months after winning her first Top Fuel world championship, and the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series star could not be more excited.
For the second time in his career, early-season excitement turned into something even more special for Matt Hagan last season.
The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season will begin with the annual iconic opener, the tradition-rich 58th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com, Feb. 8-11 at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
