With only four races remaining in the 2020 season when the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series arrives at World Wide Technology Raceway on Oct. 2-4 for the Mopar Express Lane NHRA Midwest Nationals presented by Pennzoil, championship contenders know they will need an impressive weekend in St. Louis to stay in title contention.
Pro Stock Motorcycle’s Ryan Oehler crossed one major thing off his to-do list in 2020, winning for the first time in his career in the class at the season-opening race. That put him in the championship mix and Oehler hopes to remain there with a solid showing in St. Louis, which serves as a home race of sorts. It’s just two hours away for the Bloomington, Ill. native and he’s eager to put on a memorable performance in front of the fans. He’s currently sixth in points, 47 points back of Scotty Pollacheck, who won in Indy, but with six riders separated by less than three rounds, it’s going to be a furious fight to the finish.
“Our team is pumped for the remaining races this season,” Oehler said. “We’re really looking forward to showing the fans what this underdog team can bring to the table as we try to make a run at the 2020 championship. Racing at St. Louis is a big deal for our team, and it gives our friends, families and fans an opportunity to come cheer us on and enjoy the power of the NHRA in our backyard.”
