POMONA, Calif. (March 29, 2023) – Austin Prock and the Montana Brand / Rocky Mountain Twist Chevrolet dragster team will be hoping the streak of success at In-N-Out Pomona Dragstrip continues for the 2019 Rookie of the Year this weekend at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals.
At In-N-Out Dragstrip Prock has posted an 11-4 individual record while taking his Montana Brand/Rocky Mountain Twist dragster to the final round in three of five career appearances culminating in a victory last November at the season-ending NHRA Finals.
“Heading to Pomona always excited me. I got my first-round win there and have had success in the past, along with being the most recent winner at the track. The place is just good to me. I feel like if the track is in a good place, there should be some really quick runs and those types of conditions really suits our setup.”
Prock is seeking his third straight trip to the final round at the Winternationals after earning runner-up honors in 2020 and 2022 (he didn’t compete in the 2021 event). Prock is currently sitting No. 8 in the points after two quarterfinal exits in Gainesville, Florida, and at last weekend’s Arizona Nationals,
