Pro Street Winner Andrea Coddens
The 6th Annual NHRDA Jefferson State Diesel Nationals finished strongly after a very rocky start to
the event. With timing system issues all day long the racers and the fans stuck by the NHRDA as
the event was finally completed. Drivers and pullers came from 7 different states vying for the
NHRDA National Event wins. This was the third event in the MBRP Diesel Drag Racing Series and the
second event in the NHRDA Diesel Sled Pulling series.
With the timing system not working in the left lane, NHRDA officials came up with a backup plan for
each class in the MBRP Diesel Drag Racing Series. For the heads-up classes (ie Pro Stock, Pro
Street and Super Street) the racers would utilize the Christmas tree like usual, but the NHRDA
would put an official at the finish line to judge who crossed the line first to decide the winner
of each race.
3.0 Diesel Winner Tom Colesanti
For the Sportsman and Super Diesel classes which have dial-ins and indexes respectively,
eliminations would be based on the best package, racers with the best package would move onto the
next round of competition until there would be 4 or less racers left and then 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th
place would be based on the packages from that round. Doing eliminations this way would still
allow racers to compete for prize money, contingency money and points.
"The idea for this came from the NHRDA race director Jason Murray, he walked out of the tower for a
couple of minutes and came back in with this scenario and we put it to the racers and each one
loved the idea," said NHRDA President Randy Cole.
There was also a first, as the Andrea Coddens became the first ever woman to win an NHRDA Pro
