Russell Completes NHRA License

It's official, the Russell Motorsports crew showed up at Lebanon Valley Dragway in September to make the last two required runs to earn an NHRA License. With a slow day of "test and tune" at the strip, the team put 4 passes on the car. The first pass of the day was also Jami's very first full trip down the drag strip. In addition to that, it was also the quickest run of the day at an 8.63 second pass at over 150 MPH. There are a few changes to be made with the car before the next test session. Stay Tuned, the team is planning to attend another test session in October before calling it a season and re-building for 2016!

Funny Car Debut A Success!
It has been 3 years, almost to the day, since the Russell Motorsports team made the decision to add a Nostalgia Funny Car to the line-up. Building a brand new funny car from the ground up has been an up-hill battle from day 1, and has presented a totally different list of challenges than the team is used to.

This past weekend, the team was able to enjoy the rewards of their hard work when the 1976 Mustang II Funny Car made it's first ever trips down the drag strip as a part of the Annual Dover Drags Nostalgia Reunion at Lebanon Valley Dragway.

Top 10 At Fonda Speedway

Russell Motorsports came out swinging in their first event of 2015. Jami posted an impressive 2nd place in his heat race, and hung on for a top 10 finish in the A-main. The team was happy to be in the mix after being away from the track for a number of seasons. With a few small adjustments, the crew is definitely feeling like they can build on these results.

Congrats to Josh Pieniazek on his first win of 2015. Jami and Josh worked closely over the winter to dial in his new chassis and it appears to be paying off!
