How is the Atlanta Dragway configured?Atlanta Dragway was built in 1975 on the site of a planned airport northeast of Atlanta, Ga. It operated as a red clay dirt dragstrip until 1980. It then became sanctioned for competition by the NHRA. It has been continuously updated by several owners, including Pro Stock driver Gary Brown. The NHRA has owned the facility since 1993. With its 660-foot launch pad and 1,002-foot elevation, the track is considered a special challenge for NHRA crew chiefs. Under the NHRA's "Every Ticket's a Pit Pass" program, fans are invited to visit the teams and cars as they perform service between rounds of competition.
Which categories will run in the Southern Nationals?The NHRA Southern Nationals feature a full slate of action. Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle categories head the schedule. At 10,000 horsepower, the nitromethane-burning Top Fuel dragsters are considered the quickest-accelerating vehicles on earth. They are capable of going from zero to 100 mph in less than one second. The Funny Car category will feature short-wheelbased, carbon fiber replicas of production autos. Pro Stock cars resemble their counterparts in automotive showrooms but are extensively modified for performance. Pro Stock Motorcycles look like production bikes and burn gasoline through either carbureted or fuel injected engines. Sportsman and Factory Stock categories are also featured on all three days of the event's schedule.
Who are the leading Top Fuel drivers for the 2020 Southern Nationals?The Southern Nationals draw the top talent in NHRA Top Fuel drivers. Brittany Force, Austin Prock, Terry McMillen and Antron Brown are among the entries for the 2020 race. In 2019, Force finished second to event winner Steve Torrence. Her 3.989-second, 274.00-mph run fell short of Torrance's 3.863-second, 320.20-mph pass. You can expect her to make her best effort to finish one position better next time.
Who are the leading Funny Car drivers for the 2020 Southern Nationals?Ron Capps is expected to return to defend his 2019 Funny Car Southern Nationals title. Capps beat Shawn Langdon, John Force and Tommy Johnson Jr. on the way to his 2019 win. He turned in a 4.068-second run at 315.34 mph to beat Tim Wilkerson in the final. Along with Capps, Wilderson, Johnson Jr. and Force return to re-create the drama. You can count on Cruz Pedregon, Alexis DeJoria and Matt Hagan to figure in the Southern Nationals Funny Car category, too.
Who are the leading Pro Stock Motorcycle drivers for the 2020 Southern Nationals?2019 winner and five-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Andrew Hines is slated to run in the Southern Nationals. Hines ran a 6.865-second, 195.05-mph pass to defeat Jerry Savoie in 2019. He beat Melissa Surber, Ryan Oehler and Hector Arana Jr. on the way to the finals. Savoie and Arana Jr. will be back with a mission to deny Hines a repeat win.
