Scott McKinstry Battling to Win Two Championships

It's been a very busy 2016 NHRDA Diesel Drag Racing season for Texas Driver Scott McKinstry. Scott currently leads all drivers in the Sportsman Category, and is currently in the #2 spot in the Super Diesel Category. His main competition is none other than Verlon Southwick, one of the toughest drivers in the NHRDA.

Scott's Chevy Duramax is also pretty unique to others in the two classes, running two wheel drive instead of the much more common four wheel drive of other competitors.

"It's our two wheel drive truck against the four wheel drive world." McKinstry commented. "We turn up the nitrous for Super Diesel, so the starting line is very important to do well." he continued.

When we asked Scott about his season long battle with Verlon Southwick, he had the following to say:

"Verlon is very consistent. We began to get heavily involved and start winning in NHRDA last year, and have battled with Verlon all season. We didn't have enough for Verlon in Woodburn, but have made some changes; we'll be ready in Texas."

The 2016 NHRDA World Finals will get started September 30th at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis Texas. For more information visit
