LAS VEGAS, NV – October 10, 2019 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Prior to hitting the showrooms of SEMA, Motor Trend’s Mike Finnegan will face the Street Outlaws duo of Farmtruck and AZN on the track at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a one-of-a-kind grudge match during the Dodge NHRA Nationals Presented By Pennzoil, Oct. 31-Nov. 3.
For the first time ever, The Farmtruck, a 1970 C-10 Chevy Pickup Truck will take to the track at an NHRA National event with its driver by the same name behind the wheel. Beloved by fans of the popular show “Street Outlaws,” the Farmtruck is the definition of a sleeper, complete with rusty paint, a camper shell and dents to camouflage the power under the hood. Farmtruck and AZN enjoy fooling unsuspecting bystanders and racers alike. But we can be certain that Mike Finnegan knows the score and will be ready for them.
Finnegan is no stranger to NHRA national events, having competed previously at the NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Calif. when he raced his Blasphemi gasser against Hoonigan’s Jon Chase. He won that race and is looking for a repeat when he faces Farmtruck at the starting line with his Hemi-powered 1955 Chevy gasser.
