After finishing runner-up at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Concorde, NC, Todd Hoerner sealed the deal at the next race. Hoerner, driving the TT Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro sponsored by Sonny’s Racing Engines, beat Frank Gugliotta in the final round of the Mountain Motor Pro Stock division in Bristol, Tenn.
Hoerner has reached the final round in two of the three Mountain Motor Pro Stock events contested in NHRA history.
When Frank Tamez arrived in Boise, Idaho, the first weekend of May for an NHRA Division 6 race, he didn’t know what to expect.
