Brian McClanahan just couldn’t wait any longer to catch up to Jody Lang and red-lighted away his chance in Stock.


Justin Lamb, Jody Lang, and Paul Nero marched to victory and celebrated with their teams in winner’s circle Feb. 25 at the NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ.

Lamb, Henderson, NV, continued the title defense of his 2017 Lucas Oil Super Stock World Championship with a victory over local driver Mike Cotten of Cave Creek. Cotten took a late start and broke out attempting to catch Lamb running 10.025 seconds, 130.99 mph. Lamb notched a victory pass of 8.513 seconds, 149.02 mph.


Stock stand out Lang, Puyallup, WA, captured his 29th national event victory and 20th Stock win as Brian McClanahan, Alta Loma, CA, triggered the red light at the starting line. Lang cruised to victory in his Chevy Malibu at 12.328 seconds, 94.78 mph.
