We have a great debate about NHRA’s Countdown championship format on our hands here. It’s called KB Racing. Jason Line has won five of eight races so far this season and his teammate Greg Anderson has won the other three. Third driver, Bo Butner, has also seen some final round action.

The last time we touched upon Pro Stock, I said there would be more to come on that subject. Management here at Fronstretch expressed some displeasure that I left the “when” on that open-ended, but I argue it’s not entirely my fault because that story is still very much in play. Many rumors are running …
