After a thirty three year hiatus from NHRA competition, Al Mallory Racing will be making a return
to series competition in 2013 with driver Richard Brady behind the wheel of a Mallory owned 225"
alcohol injected front engine dragster. The Mallory & Brady team will compete in Comp (B/NF) at
the NHRA Division 4 events and in C/Fuel at the NHRA Heritage Series events this season.
"The competition level in this style of racing is tougher than it has ever been and we look forward
to the challenge," says Mallory. "Through heavy research and development with our partners, we
feel our cylinder head program with Chris Frank at Frankenstein Racing Heads has advanced
drastically and with reliable power from our engine program with Ray Little at Ray-Mac Racing
Engines, we have a winning combination. This coupled with the financial support from our major
sponsors Ferrini Boots and Mallory Screen-print & Embroidery, has allowed us to commit to traveling
more and running harder to play with the big boys nationally."
Mallory began racing in 1969 and spent four years in the very competitive class of Pro Comp in
Division 4 from 1975 to 1979 where he became the first driver to eclipse the six second zone with a
small block powerplant in Division 4. From there, Mallory found success in multiple forms of
motorsports and has put together a six decade streak of winning races and or championships in some
form of motorsports starting in the 1960's, including victories in SCCA, Off Road Racing, IMCA
sprint cars and modifieds, dirt and asphalt legends cars, asphalt late models and spec trucks with
his most recent success clinching the series Championship in the 2010 Southwest Junior Fuel
Association. Mallory is proud to say he has owned cars and tuned for drivers like Tommy Smith,
David Starr, Blake Mallory and Richard Brady.
With decades of success, Mallory and team have no intentions of slowing down and have full
intentions of finding the winners circle in the 2013 racing efforts. Their season will begin March
1st at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas where the NHRA Division 4 will kick off it's season,
followed by a quick trip to compete the following weekend at the historic Famoso Raceway's "March
