ProCharged Racers Dominate the Winner’s Circle

Kris Thorne at NHRA US Nationals

ProCharged vehicles shine on the race track. And 2022 has been another amazing year for ProCharged racers. 2022 has also been super exciting for ProCharger staff, as we’ve resumed our participation in several key race events. Check out all the fun our racers have been having and we’ve been having!

ProCharger Cheers on Racers at Indy, LS Fest

One of the most exciting things for ProCharger in 2022 is resuming our participation in major race events. We so missed the face-to-face connection with fans and racers. In the past few weeks, we attended both NHRA US Nationals in Indianapolis, IN, and LS Fest in Bowling Green, KY.

NHRA US Nationals Had to Be One of the Biggest Ever!

Just wow. We couldn’t believe how many people came out for this event, both the fans and the racers. It was exciting to see how many ProCharged vehicles there were –

  • 5 Pro Mod cars
  • 4 Top Sportsman cars
  • 18 of the 32 Top Dragster cars
  • 1 Comp Eliminator car

The passion pumping from a crowd that size, combined with the massive horsepower from the race cars made this an exciting event. We couldn’t be more proud of all the ProCharged racers. They had huge wins at this event –

Rusty Baxter – Top Dragster

Runners up:
Dane Ward – Top Dragster

LS Fest East and Demolition Matt’s Impala Burnout

Besides the gorgeous green, rolling hills, Bowling Green delivered a huge amount of fun. From autocross to drag racing, LS Fest East was a constant buzz of activity. With multiple events happening every hour, a single person couldn’t see it all. Loads of people stopped by the booth to say hi, which we loved! The crowds, the racers, the enthusiasm and creativity with LS engines – it was an amazing event to attend.

By far, the most fun event had to be the burnout competition. For hours, the crowd cheered for tire shredding action, the pinnacle of which was “Demolition Matt’s” gold Impala. It performed the same rotating maneuvers to produce excessive amounts of smoke, but with the added bonus of a hydraulic, rhythmic dance. It really was next-level. And we couldn’t be more proud, as this is the same vehicle we ProCharged on an episode of OffTheRanch last month.
