The conclusion of the 2023 NHRA Drag Racing season is fast approaching, with just four national, and four regional events remaining on the calendar. So it's time to get caught up on where things stand in the championship chases at this juncture. The Countdown to the Championship in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series is well underway, with the first two, of six, events completed, and a third one happening this week. Meanwhile, the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series for sportsman racers, including Top Alcohol, is rapidly nearing it's finish with some seriously close, championship battles happening in those categories.
While the Funny Car Chaos, and Nitro Chaos series have ended their 2023 season, with season and final event champions crowned in the past two weeks, there's still one major series to be decided in just over two weeks at Bakersfield's Famoso Dragstrip. The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage series will close it's six-event season (for FC), and five races for TF, at the re-branded Wally Parks NHRA Nostalgia Nationals with the Nostalgia Funny Car championship clinched for the Bucky Austin team with Bobby Cottrell at the wheel. In Nostalgia Top Fuel, it's all but decided in favour of the defending champions, the "Great Expectations II" team with second-generation racer Tyle Hilton driving, and father Bobby tuning. And, if all goes well, we will have Bob Snyder shooting for us at Famoso.
