COMP Cams®-Powered Cars Sweep 2010 NHRA Competition

COMP Cams®-equipped professional class racers leave mark on 2010 NHRA Funny Car, Pro Stock, Super Stock and Super Comp points chases

As the 2010 NHRA drag racing season came to a close, it was abundantly clear that racers running COMP® components dominated the competition with more major event wins, consistent performances and faster times, proving once again that COMP Cams® is the absolute leader in valve train technology.

John Force picked up his 15th NHRA Full Throttle Funny Car championship title in his COMP®-powered Ford while ending the season on a high note with an 8-0 streak in eliminations that began at the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals where he beat second place points finisher, Matt Hagan, in the final.

In the Pro Stock category, Greg Anderson claimed his fourth championship title at the Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, California. Anderson took over the points lead in October and held off the competition long enough to claim his first championship since the 2005 season with a total of 2,591 points.

Ryan McClanahan clenched the points lead and Super Stock Championship title with a runner-up finish at the Pacific Division NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in Las Vegas, Nevada. McClanahan fought to bring home the championship title after briefly moving to second place behind Division 1 racer Lincoln Morehead.

Finally, after battling tight competition in the final weeks of racing, COMP Cams®-equipped Gary Stinnett came out ahead and took home the Lucas Oil Super Comp Series Championship with 630 points, just 8 points ahead of the second place winner Luke Bogacki.

Racers running COMP Cams® components set the pace during the 2010 season by winning championships in four different classes – unheard of dominance in an organization that continues to bring out the tightest field of competitors in drag racing.
