October 28, 2016 Madison Ill: In all forms of racing, it’s common knowledge to expect the unexpected, on and off the track. One of the most unexpected off track events of the 2016 drag racing season is the inclusion of NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Cars in the newly resurrected American Drag Racing League Series. The Alcohol classes are one of 5 Professional Classes that the ADRL is offering as an alternative racing platform, not a replacement platform to the existing format available.
The Guardian for Heroes Foundation – Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield Legacy Funny Car team piloted by Nancy Matter is taking on this new opportunity in St Louis for the Inaugural American Drag Racing League Series set to debut on November 4 and 5th, 2016 at Gateway Motorsports Park named Dragstock XI.
“We are extremely excited and grateful for this opportunity that Larry Jeffers and Kenny Nowling have put together. Their team has spent hundreds of hours restructuring and rebuilding this series” noted Matter. “With the PDRA having an additional platform for the NHRA J&A Pro Mod Series, now the Alcohol Class has an alternative racing platform as well.”
“We were looking for to head out to Vegas and Pomona, however, with everything new and newly installed on the Guardian For Heroes Foundation Funny Car, our testing data at Ennis was close to the numbers we were looking for, however, we were just a little shy without any data accumulated for our comfort level to travel west. We are testing again before the event and really looking forward to our first ADRL Race as a Professional Team.”
Matter’s Team will roll into St Louis on November 2nd for the PreRace Party where there is an anticipated 1500 fans to join in at Chuck a Burger and remain at Gateway Motorsports Park through Saturday, November 5th, until the conclusion of the event.
