39th Annual

Nov. 6-9
Pomona Raceway
Historic Pomona Raceway at Fairplex, the oldest venue on the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series circuit, has been home to NHRA’s season opener since 1961 and to the season-ending Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals since 1984. In 2001, the Top Fuel championship wasn’t decided until the semifinals of this event. Last year, it was the Funny Car title that came down to the semifinals. John Force defeated teammate Tony Pedregon to clinch the championship, then beat Tommy Johnson Jr. in the final round for the event win. Cory McClenathan, in Top Fuel, and Kurt Johnson, in Pro Stock, ended the season with their first wins of 2002. Matt Hines won Pro Stock Bike.
