The 2020 racing season is starting to wind back up again during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Randy Meyer Racing Team is eager to return to the winner’s circle at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, OH. Defending event winner, Julie Nataas, will join the defending World Champion Megan Meyer, in her NGK Spark Plugs/Lucas Oil Top Alcohol Dragster, to take on the rest of the competition for the team’s fourth race of the year.
“It’s been four long months without racing, so I’m really looking forward to go to National Trail Raceway where we won last year to restart the NHRA season,” Julie said. “We will do a test run before the race to make sure everything is where we want it to be. It’s going to be hot this weekend, but I’m hoping to defend my win from last year. I’m excited to be back racing with my team!”
Julie scored her first Regional event win at this event last year over Chris Demke that led to her first Regional Championship. This will be Megan’s first time racing in Columbus, and she is looking forward to the challenge.
“It’s been almost 2 months since my last race where we had a great outing being number one qualifier and picked up the win, which is our second of the season. I’m hoping to collect as many points as possible this weekend, and at our race in Topeka next weekend, to continue the chase for the 2020 championship with the limited schedule. We collected good data here last year, so I have a really good feeling going into qualifying on Friday that we will both perform our best,” said Megan.
The team will get one qualifying session Friday at 6pm ET, with two more on Saturday at 12 and 3pm ET followed by the opening round of eliminations at 6pm ET. The semi-finals and final round will be held on Sunday at 12 and 3pm ET at National Trail Raceway.
