Off the Wall With: J.R. Todd

Welcome to Off the Wall With…, where we ask your favorite drivers five questions that are…well, off the wall! We’ll check in with a different driver each week to get a peek into life outside the race car. This week, NHRA Top Fuel driver J.R. Todd answers our questions.

What’s fun besides racing?
Todd: That’s a tough one. Racing is all I do. I enjoy hanging out with my buddies back home that I went to high school with. We just go out to a local dive bar every now and then. That’s a good time.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?
Todd: To win a championship out here racing. I still haven’t done that so it’s definitely at the top of my list.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Todd: I went and saw Get Hard (recently).

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?
Todd: Water.

Most memorable fan interaction?
Todd: Every race you meet interesting fans. It seems like there’s always one oddball that will stick out at every race.
