NHRA and NDRA Drag Racing - Strip Club

Feb 22, 2007


NHRA Roundup
In 2006, Jeremy Lookofsky broke through a crowded All-Motor field to capture his first Xpld NHRA Sport Compact Series championship. He drove his DVS Drag Cartel Civic to two wins (in Denver and Las Vegas), five runner-ups and three number one qualifiers. He also set the Honda Tuning All-Motor national speed record with a 141.89 mph run in Atco, N.J.

"Winning the championship is a huge honor," Lookofsky said. "It hasn't really sunk in yet. We have a pretty tough field in All Motor."

Lookofsky is one of the pioneers in the All-Motor class, which has become the most competitive in the series. The rise of young drivers, such as Team Clutch Masters' Saul Salceda, who finished third in the championship, and the continued success of veterans like Lookofsky and Norris Prayoonto, Salceda's teammate, have pushed engine development at a rapid pace.

"Next year it's 9.50s or die," Lookofsky said. "The 2007 motor program with ERL Performance is huge. We should come out hitting hard."


Record For Eggum Racing
Stephanie Eggum is the first FWD Honda driver to break into the 7s
In the final round of qualifying at Englishtown, Stephanie Eggum ran a 7.957 at 179.52mph, making her the first Honda in the Hot Rod class to run 7s. By backing it up in the first round of eliminations with a 7.926 at 181.26, Eggum did what other Honda tuners-including names like Kenny Tran and Gary Gardella-could not. Even more shocking is the fact that her silver Civic racecar is unsponsored. But that should change. In the finals at Englishtown, Eggum lowered her mark down to a 7.90 at 184.25 against GM Racing's Ron Lummus.

"We've been racing everybody," Eggum said. "But to beat Garrett and Lummus is another thing. Beating them was huge."

Eggum closed out the season strong, taking the final two rounds and finishing a close second in the championship, behind Lummus. "The nobodies are taking down the titans. Can someone please sponsor us now-please?"


NDRA Roundup
At the NOPI NDRA World Finals, Team ClutchMasters gave the drag racing world a glimpse of the future. Norris Prayoonto and Saul Salceda ran 9.50s all weekend in taking their season-long competition up another notch.

Prayoonto kicked things off by running a 9.519 at 142.32mph in qualifying, establishing a new NDRA world record. But that didn't last long. Salceda reset the record with a 9.510 at 142.24 in the final round, beating Prayoonto in the process and winning the NDRA Pro Stock championship.
