The VIPsports.com Dodge Stratus Top Alcohol Funny Car spent the winter buffing up for what is expected to be a starring role in the ESPN2 series.

The National Hot Rod Association and ESPN announced that ESPN Regional Television will produce a series of one-hour shows covering select NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series national events in 2006. ESPN2 and ESPN2 HD will showcase the racing action on a tape-delay basis.

Sportsman racing fans will also be able to see their favorite racers on NHRA2day, NHRA’s newsmagazine that airs each Sunday on ESPN2. Each of the forty-one half-hour programs will run a Sportsman Spotlight segment featuring the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.

The VIPsports.com Dodge Stratus Top Alcohol Funny Car spent the winter buffing up for what is expected to be a starring role in the ESPN2 series. The ParkerTech Racing Services crew, led by Frank Parker, carefully analyzed all their data from 2005, sought out new technology and parts at the PRI Show and massaged the car for its 2006 season. As this is written, the car is in the staging lanes, for its first qualifying round of 2006, at the 37th Annual NHRA Gatornationals, in Gainesville, Florida.
