(May 5) -- Ever since Scott Palmer went searching for a little mojo about a month ago, his Magic Dry Organic Absorbent Top Fuel dragster team has been on an encouraging upward trend, which continued this weekend at the 39th annual Arby's NHRA Southern Nationals. "We're gaining a little mojo back each weekend," Palmer said. "Ever since I realized we'd lost our mojo in Las Vegas, we've been on the search for it and I think it's working because we’ve won rounds at the last three races in a row. We've working hard to gain this momentum and...

COMMERCE, Ga. (May 4) -- On-and-off rain showers made qualifying for the 39th annual Arby's NHRA Southern Nationals a little more taxing than normal, but Scott Palmer and his Magic Dry Organic Absorbent dragster crew still managed to earn the No. 10 starting spot in the talent-laden Top Fuel class. “We are happy with the performance of the car,” Palmer said. “It did exactly what it was supposed to do.

Scott Palmer comes within a whisper of his first final-round showing of the season

CHARLOTTE (April 28) -- After a problem-plagued two days of qualifying where he failed to get his Magic Dry Organic Absorbent Top Fuel dragster down the track under full power, Scott Palmer came to life when it mattered most, racing to a fifth-place finish at the 10th annual NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals.  Coming from the No. 10 qualifying position after mustering only a best of 4.103 seconds at 273.05 mph during three rounds of time trials, Palmer upset heavyweights Antron Brown and Brittany Force to lead his quad of racers in the opening round of eliminations with a...

Shane Conway keeps on slaying giants in his Magic Dry Top Alcohol Dragster

Shane Conway keeps on slaying giants in his Magic Dry Top Alcohol Dragster

CONCORD, N.C. (April 25) -- Third-year driver Shane Conway probably will not be a threat to the Top Alcohol Dragster world championship again this year simply because his business endeavors in Houston keep him from running a full-time schedule. But that's not to say he won't influence the outcome of the title chase, or any race he enters for that matter. Tuned by his accomplished father, longtime NHRA standout Tom Conway, Shane has made a habit of knocking off some of the biggest names in the category in the handful of races he runs each year. That was the case...
