Rookie Tylor Miller Claims First FuelTech Pro Mod Win

The FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series features the world’s fastest Pro Modified race cars in a dedicated doorslammers division that allows for a host of options in manufacturers, fuels, and engine configurations. Equipped with more than 3,000 horsepower, these suspended door Pro Mod cars travel the quarter-mile in less than six seconds at speeds exceeding 250 mph. Pro Mods are allowed to run on injected nitrous/high octane racing fuel or supercharged with methanol. They are the fastest class of NHRA drag cars with suspended doors that have to work.

For nearly 20 years, FuelTech has been recognized for its line of engine management systems and have been a key partner for several of the NHRA’s top teams. FuelTech-backed teams have earned four NHRA world titles and a number of wins at nationals. Kris Thorne won the season opener in Gainesville to pick up his first victory in the class at the NHRA Gatornationals with FuelTech backing. Then, picked up his second straight win in Charlotte at the zMAX Four-Wide at the series most recent event.

Miller Advances to Third in Pro Mod Series Points

Heading into the third of ten races of the 2022 FuelTech NHRA Pro Mod Racing Series presented by D-Wagon, Kris Thorne was looking to keep his perfect season going with a win at Virginia Motorsports Park on Sunday. After winning two rounds with 250-mph plus runs, Thorne red lighted the tree as a Rickie Smith advanced to his 26th career Pro Mod final with early wins against Sidnei Frigo and Doug Winters.

NHRA Pro Mod rookie Tylor Miller proved he belonged on Sunday by defeating JR Gray, Stan Shelton, and Justin Bond to set the stage for a Final Run matchup against his mentor and multi-time world champion Rickie Smith. Miller had a .028 reaction time and posted a solid pass with a 5.798 ET at 251.92 mph. Although Kris Thorne stills holds an 89 point advantage for the series, Smith and Miller moved into second and third, respectively.
