Color and Motion in the NHRA

 The big-time drag racing season begins and ends each year at Pomona—site of the National Hot Rod Association Auto Club Finals. 2014 was the 50th annual running of this event, drawing the best in Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Motorcycles to compete for the biggest prize available on the quarter mile. Maximum Drive was on hand to document the drama.

The heat from Matt Hagan’s funny car turns the raceway scene into an impressionist painting as he prepares to win his second national championship in Funny Cars.
Eighteen-time Funny Car champion John Force was edged out for the championship this year, but his Castrol GTX Mustang was there for the show.
Erica Enders-Stevens made history as the first woman to earn a championship in her Pro Stock Camaro.
Courtney Force carried on the family tradition in Funny Cars with her Mustang, finishing 4th in points for the year.
If you could see through his helmet, Bob Bode’s face would show the intense concentration necessary to stay on top of 7000 bhp in a Funny Car.

Tommy Johnson Jr. drives his Funny Car, and also drives a special two-seat dragster to give rides to kids through the Make-A-Wish foundation.
John Force has been the leading drag racer of the last 20 years, winning 18 NHRA championships.

Erica Enders-Stevens is pleased with her “Wally.” Each championship trophy is a statue of NHRA founder Wally Parks.
Drivers get the glory, but drag racing, like all motorsports, is a team effort.
