“We want to give every racer the best possible conditions to race for their championship,” said Rollie Miller, general manager of the NMRA Keystone Drag Racing Series. With all categories, except for two, wide-open the NMRA has added Tyler Crossnoe of Dream Team Traction Consulting and Total Venue Concept’s Kurt Johnson to its highly-acclaimed event staff for the Nitto Tire NMRA All-Ford World Finals, held September 29 through October 1, 2016 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
This isn’t the first time the two track prep gurus have worked together on the pre-race track chores and throughout the weekend. Miller secured their services for the NMCA All-American Nationals and the NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing earlier this year. Miller explained, “Tyler has handled pre-race track preparations before every single NMCA race and a few NMRA events, too. We brought Kurt in for the race at Indy and Joliet and signed them up for the NMRA World Finals. They are both very busy working with a lot of facilities, so we were lucky to have locked them in earlier this year for these marquee events.”
The two track prep gurus will be joining NMRA’s TJ “El Prepe” Bailey and the newest members to the NMRA starting line staff, Jake Green, who is on loan from Maple Grove Raceway and Dwayne Lang of Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. This all-star staff will also have some of the best equipment available to perform their task in keeping track conditions consistent for the racers. Total Venue Concepts is bringing its tractor, static drag box, and tire rotator along with an assortment of sprayers to ensure the traction compound is applied to a great racing surface.
Crossnoe and Johnson are arriving early to scrape and clean the track to prepare it for Thursday’s test session before racing begins on Friday. Miller said in closing, “The whole season comes down to Bowling Green for some racers and we want them to have the fairest shot at racing for their championship or top-ten finish. Adding Tyler and Kurt to our staff shows our commitment to providing those conditions.”
