Finds First Career Winner's Circle with HP 8.90 Sniper Jr.
Gage Rachford has been
racking up the round wins since becoming a Jr. Racer. He
hadn't quite been able to break through for his first
victory, but that all changed Saturday night!
Gage drove the wheels
off his hotrod Saturday to grab his first ever race win. A
string of great lights and consistent finish line driving
helped him to earn a trip to the Winner's Circle. In the
finals, Gage had a nice .078 light, and was right on his
dial to get past the competition and earn his first race
winning hardware with his
2016 HP Sniper Jr. Package!
We want to send a HUGE
congrats out to Gage and his entire team on grabbing one of
the most memorable wins of any Jr. Racers career!
Grabs Wally at Music City Raceway with HP Turn-Key Assassin
Taylor Phann has been
collecting race wins left and right since jumping in her
2015 HP Assassin Turn-Key Car.
Mostly racing at Middle Tennessee Dragway, Taylor and her
team branched out to Music City Raceway this past weekend to
try to bring home a Wally.
When the dust settled
that is exactly what they did! Taylor marched through a
tough field of racers, including her brother Trent Phann and
HP 7.90 Turn-Key Car in the
semi finals. In the finals Taylor put on a driving show for
the competition. She knocked the tree over with a nice .034
light, then paired that with a dead on run to leave no room
for the competition!
Taylor and the entire Phann Team on a great outing, and
earning a Wally!
Continues Winning Ways, Grabs Victory at Royal Purple
Raceway with HP Turn-Key Car
Most drivers need a
period of adapting when they move from 8.90 to 7.90
competition. That has not been the case for Mia Schultz in
2016, as her move up has been seamless thus far!
Mia has already
continued to find the Winner's Circle a number of times
early on this season. This past weekend she found it yet
again, even while fighting tricky weather conditions! A
string of great lights, great top end driving, and the right
calls by her crew chief allowed her to park her
2015 HP 7.90 Lite Turn-Key Assassin
in yet another Winner's Circle!
We want to congratulate
Mia and her team on yet another hard fought race win.

kicked things off by grabbing yet another win Saturday. He
put together a day full of strong runs to find the Winner's
Circle. In the finals, he was first off the starting line
and pedaled his way to victory. His 9.01 on an 8.91 was more
than enough to earn another piece of hardware for his
older age group, Jr. Lightning, it was Clayton McGinnis
putting on a clinic yet again. In the finals he was first
off the starting line, and did a perfect driving job as he
closed the finish line down to just .035 for the race win!
This marked the second week in a row for Clayton to find the

great crew chiefing, and outstanding hardware continued to
