When everything is coming your way, your probably in the wrong lane.

Both TJ and Beckman lost there funding so I am sure the crews were told by DSR to look for employment else where. Cruz has funding and saw an opportunity to get a quality crew chief and entire crew and did.

If things keep going at this rate it's going to be hard to find enough quality cars to fill an 8 car field next year.

I agree Joe, Pro Stock is in the same boat. Now that Harley is out might be less than full fields in Pro Stock Bikes. If it is left at 16 car fields it will be "all run" in the Pros. Beckman, TJ and others will have to get real jobs like the rest of us.....Yikes!

Didn't/doesn't TJ have a mail order parts business? With today's drivers having to bring sponsorship with them, most are well connected and driving is just a stop gap career while it last. But some are not.

Beckman worked for Frank Hawley. Before that he was an elevator repairman. Who knows at this point. Not a lot of companies out there looking to give away money to sponsor race teams. I think TJ is in good shape, the racing parts business seems OK.

This is a perpetual event for as long as people submit, in a year from now we'll be on this same program. How you figure parts sales are normal is beyond my comprehension!! With 700,000 jobs being destroyed weekly, how do you come to these conclusions?!

Eventually this will catch up with everyone 99.99%, it'll be a camping world literally speaking!!

Maybe the dark messiah will pull the plug on this media, who've declared war on reality.

Save this place.

I think the future of drag racing is brighter than ever.

Joe Biden is under pressure to eliminate $50,000 of student debt for each student.

$50,000 can buy A LOT of race parts!

They turned these University's into four year summer camps to keep young adults busy because they had offshored their jobs to china!!

Both Jack and TJ lost sponsorship at the end of the season however Schumacher has been looking for sponsorship.

Harleys lost the corporate sponsorship but I haven’t read that they weren’t going to run next year

If NHRA doesn't find a replacement source of money for the HD revenue they lost to sponsor the class, Pro Stock Bike may very well go the way of the PS Truck class.

I can believe that it’s beyond your comprehension, but in the Classracer thread linked above, a Holley employee commented that their companies are having a banner year and orders are way up industry-wide.

I believe it we gave up on hold with racepak on a issue. Turned out to be a bad cable. Holley is MSD and racepak, they better hire some phone techs.
