GOLD COAST, Australia (November 8, 2017) – After running a Gray Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro two weekends ago at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Shane Tucker will be returning to his trusty steed as he competes at the 53rd annual Auto Club NHRA Finals in his Hot Wheels™ Car Care Products Camaro.
“I’m looking forward to getting back into my car this weekend in Pomona,” Tucker said. “Tommy Lee [co-crew chief] tested the car on Monday after the nationals in Las Vegas but it didn’t exactly go as planned. We had to take out our good engine and test the spare. We had an electrical issue that potentially could’ve been playing havoc on us since the Dallas race so it’s good to be able to find something that’ll help us out this weekend in Pomona.”
Tucker made his professional NHRA Pro Stock debut in 2014 at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona but has not competed at the track since.
“I made my debut there but haven’t made it back until now so I’m excited to get back there,” he added. “Obviously, this track is where it all started for the sport and they always get a great crowd. Since this is where I made my debut, it will always be special to me. I think Pomona is different than anywhere else NHRA goes.”
Qualifying at the 53rd annual Auto Club NHRA Finals will begin on Friday, November 10th with two qualifying sessions at 12:00 and 2:45 p.m. (PT). Two more qualifying sessions will begin on Saturday, November 11th at 12:00 and 2:45 p.m. (PT). Eliminations begin on Sunday, November 12th at 11:00 a.m.
