It's the final day of the 2023 Camping World NHRA Drag Racing Series season, as eliminations begin in just a few hours at the In-N-Out Burger NHRA Finals at In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstrip. It's also the end of the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series schedule for the NHRA Sportsman racers. How's that for a batch of branding in two sentences? Seriously, it's the end of a long season of great racing, and close competition in almost every category. There are numerous champions already crowned, but the top three categories: Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Stock are still undecided.
That will almost certainly change very quickly in Pro Stock, as all Erica Enders has to do to grab her sixth championship is get past Fernando Caudra Sr. in their first round match, or failing that, for her only remaining challenger, Greg Anderson, to not win the event. And there's pretty long odds on that happening. In Top Fuel, there's still five drivers battling for the title, with the top three: Steve Torrence, Doug Kalitta, and Leah Pruett holding the best chances. Where it gets extremely interesting is in Funny Car, as the three racers in the championship hunt are within 20 points of each other. On top is Matt Hagan, but Robert Hight, and Bob Tasca III are less than one round behind him, so the tension will be extreme as each round of racing unfolds today.
We'll be following the action closely on NHRA.tv, FOX Sports Racing, and our stats sources: NHRA.com and DragRaceCentral.com. In addition, we've got three days worth of qualifying photos from our photographer, Bob Snyder, that we're working through, but it's going to take a few days to put them all together with the stories behind them. Check out our progress on the "What's New" page.
