(Photos by Wes Allison) – We’re here at the 2017 NHRA World Finals and we spent the day blasting photos during what we affectionately call “Hardcore Thursday”. That’s the day where there’s nothing but wall to wall sportsman racing all day long. From stock eliminator to top alcohol dragsters it is nothing but the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series on full display. It is qualifying in all of those categories with eliminations slated to begin on Friday morning. There are racers here in Pomona from all over the USA which is always a cool thing.
All but one of the sportsman national championships have been decided. The one remaining championship that has yet to be locked up is Super Gas eliminator. The two racers in contention are here on the grounds at Pomona and the rumor is that they are going to settle it like men, lining up next to each other during first round to make it happen. First round is random pairing in the category so as long as they coordinate their entrance to the staging lanes appropriately. It’ll be high drama as the two guys have raced their asses off all year.
This is a great way to kick off the final weekend of the NHRA season and we know BangShifters love sportsman drag racing! Get some!
