Tony definitely does everything first class. I have been working around Leah as far back as when she drove Steve Pluegers nostalgia funny car and she has a lot of knowledge about drag racing and working on nitro cars and is an awesome driver. Hulk Hagen is an outstanding driver and is one of the best in the reaction time department and is looking like he could be a 4X funny car champion at the end of this season.

Wow, big changes coming at Don Schumacher Racing. That team takes one step forward and *three* steps back...

Tony Schumacher gets a sponsor and returns to competition.

Leah Pruett and Matt Hagen depart to Tony Stewart's team.

Antron Brown departs to form his own team.

neat video
They also have some other pretty cool videos from Lake Havasu. Tony and Leah have been spending a lot of time this year hanging out at her Lake Havasu house and spending a lot of time on the water. I haven't seen or talked to them because I have been traveling so much this year slot car racing that I haven't been to Havasu since I spent Christmas there last year. But, my buddy that works on Bode's funny car has a vacation house there and he has hung out with them a few times this year.

It looks like Tony is having fun this week in Phoenix AZ at the NHRA test session with his new nitro teams.

Matt Hagen wins the Funny Car final at the Gatornationals for Tony Stewart's first NHRA win! Didn't take too long. Good for that whole organization.
