Halfway through the Nitro Chaos series 2023 season, the Randy Meyer Racing Team sits in second place with flagship driver, Megan Meyer in the GUNK-sponsored “Nitro Queen Bee” injected nitro dragster after winning the previous event in Eddyville, Iowa. Teammates Rachel Meyer and Matt Sackman, with only 1 race appearance each, currently sit 14th and 22nd out of 30 entries before their second race competition this weekend for the return to Nitro Chaos at historic Mo-Kan Dragway.
Mo-Kan, a home track for the Meyer sisters who grew up racing junior dragsters at the eighth-mile dragstrip, hosted their first Nitro Chaos event last year where the Randy Meyer Racing Team swept the event scored the top qualifying spots and the win and runner up. “This was our first time racing with our big, 4,000-horse power dragsters at a smaller track like this, and growing up I didn’t think that would be possible,” said Megan. “But Carl and the Mo-Kan team did a great job improving the safety and facility to have a great race for us. Winning the 2022 Nitro Chaos race planted a seed in my head to continue with the series as it grows. I hope we can score another win here this weekend and solidify my championship chase.”
This year, her little sister, Rachel, will have her first chance to compete at her home track in the powerful nitro-injected dragster, also sponsored by GUNK cleaners and engine degreaser, when she’s not removing and installing the clutch system in her dragster. “I’m really excited to be out at my home track in the big car; I’m hoping we have a good weekend with some solid A to B passes, and hopefully I can pick up a Nitro Chaos win over my sister,” Rachel claimed. This will be Matt Sackman’s first time racing at Mo-Kan Dragway as he will be behind the wheel of the OTG dragster previously driven by Julie Nataas. Matt will also be the clutch mechanic on his dragster when he’s not driving.
Before the chaos begins, the team will be visiting Pittsburg State University’s Bicknell Family Center for the Arts for a display with Megan’s dragster for fans to come see up-close and explore the “Full Throttle In Print” art gallery on Thursday, July 13th from 5-7pm CT. The art gallery will be open to the public through September.
