Let’s face it, there is nothing tame about professional drag racing, but just three weekends into the 2018 NHRA season and it’s already been one for the history books.
We’ve seen Clay Millican break his own Top Fuel record twice in one day. Then we saw Tony Schumacher break it the following week. Then Clay broke it again. Then Schumacher broke it again.
On the opening weekend we saw Brittany Force crash badly, only to see her father, NHRA legend John, involved in one of the scariest crashes we’ve ever seen this past weekend at the Arizona Nationals.

However, another member of the Force family, Courtney, won the Funny Car finals that same day at the Arizona Nationals, beating out Tommy Johnson, Jr. with a 3.834-second run at 337.16 mph
It isn’t even March and it has already been a wild and exciting year for drag racing. There’s no telling what the rest of this season has in store for all of us racing fans. Follow this link to the NHRA website to catch the dates for all of this season’s races:
