Jim Murphy Commin' at ya in 2019!



2019 Season Update - The Time is Near

It's been 4 long, and in most cases cold, months since the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series participants went into the winter hiatus. March 7th that ends and the 2019 season begins. The so-called nostalgia drag racing racers and fans will come together at the fabled Famoso Drag Strip outside of Bakersfield for the 61st annual March Meet.

Although there are over 400 entries, the stars of the 4 day show are the Top Fuel and Funny Cars. Among the dozen or so Top Fuel entries, none will be going in better prepared than Jim Murphy and his WW2 Racing team. Murphy and right hand man Daniel Wilkison shrugged off a dismal 2018 limited campaign and have gotten back into their 2017 Championship mind set. Moreso, Jim is still shooting for his record breaking 6th March Meet win.

"We had made plans to test at either Phoenix or Bakersfield over the 9th–10th of Feb but there was too much rain." said Murphy. "We've amassed a lot of new parts and innovative ideas that need to be tested before the race. The car has been ready for some time now and hopefully we can gets some runs in at Bakersfield on February 22-24. It all depends on the weather."

Along with Murphy, everyone in the class will have their sights on the 2018 Top Fuel Champion Mendy Fry who had a stellar season and is expected to pick up where the High Speed team left off. Murphy feels his is up to the task.

Unlike 2018, Murphy plans to contest every race in the series which is great news for his sponsors and fans. 2019 Race Schedule
