Scott Palmer preps for this weekend's Four-Wide Nationals by driving his Studebaker

CONCORD, N.C. (April 25) -- Top Fuel driver Scott Palmer's preparation for this weekend's 10th annual NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals included cruising Tulsa in his Studebaker. This comes on the heels of his interesting lead-in to the Houston race, which was highlighted by a cross-country search for mojo. "That Studebaker is my golf game," said Palmer, a drag racing throwback that still tunes his own racecars, including the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent Top Fuel dragster he'll race in Charlotte.

Summoning John Travolta, Top Fuel ace Scott Palmer wants his mojo back in Houston

HOUSTON (April 10) -- Standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona, Top Fuel pilot Scott Palmer didn't summon Glenn Frey and the Eagles, as so many others have in that exact location, but the rather odd combination of John Travolta and the Bee Gees. It all makes perfect sense for Palmer, the driver of the 11,000-horsepower Magic Dry Organic Absorbent dragster, as he explains.
