Two more championships that came down to the last race of the season.
Flawless performance by Matt Smith. He set the fastest run in Pro Stock Motorcycle history, wins the race and most importantly, winning his third championship. Congratulations to Matt on a great year!
JR Todd clinched the Funny Car Championship for the first time in his career and in his 200th start. He deserves it big time and this was something missing in his career. He has experienced glory by winning Indy, but I’m this will top it off.
All four champions won the Auto Club Finals, so that’s a first in NHRA history.... and that concludes the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season.
This season was a good one. We saw great action, first time winners (which makes us smile), and drama (especially in Pro Stock). I’m 100% sure that 2019 will be even better, but now it is time to celebrate, relax, and prepare for the coming season.
