Can anyone catch Johnny Pluchino? 2019 PDRA Fall Nationals preview

The air might be cooling down but the PDRA racing season is quickly heating up. The Fall Nationals at Darlington Dragway marks the beginning of 2019’s crunch time.

The Fall Nationals take place October 3rd-5th in Darlington, South Carolina. The races are the last stop before the World Finals. This means it is a critical time in the season to pick up points as they look to secure a top 10 spot.

Darlington Dragway is a legendary drag racing venue, beloved by drivers and fans alike. Known for its beautiful setting and fast surface, the track is sure to be a racing fan’s dream in the first week of October.

Heading into the Fall Nationals, Johnny Pluchino has a massive lead in the new Pro Outlaw 632 class. He’s been scorching tracks all year long in his Mustang, with drivers Christopher Holdorf and Wes Distefano trailing.
