|Keith Haney Racing Gunning for PDRA title as 2015 season begins|
ENNIS, Texas (March 20) - Keith Haney is gunning for the 2015 PDRA
championship, and the hunt begins with the Texas Nationals this
weekend at Texas Motorplex.
Keith Haney Racing had a busy off-season despite returning for the 2015
season with the same Pro Nitrous racecar and crew that closed 2014.
"We're excited to get going," Haney said. "The guys worked really hard
over the winter, to make it where we can be more efficient at the racetrack.
We changed some procedures and processes and have some new things for
our trailer, trying to make a better race team."We want to go out and go for that No. 1 spot. We're going for a championship,
we're not going to play. We're not pretenders anymore,we're contenders, and
we're going after it."KHR's Lucas Oil/RacingJunk.com Chevrolet Camaro has only 12 passes
after the team got it from Larry Jeffers Race Cars late last year. PDRA is
offering a $5,000 bonus to whoever breaks the sub-3.7-second barrier, and
while that's not likely this weekend, Haney knows there is enough speedin
the car for him to get it, thanks in part to Reher-Morrison Racing Engines
horsepower."We're looking to go after it in the second or third race at the latest," Haney
said "We've got stuff coming that will surprise people as we go after the 3.60s.
We're excited because we know we can do that. Brandon Switzer is tuning it,
and Brandon Pesz is tuning the chassis. We've got a lot of state-of-the-art stuff
inside the car, but you need the best of the best to be No. 1."During the 10-race PDRA schedule, Haney will be followed by the"Limo Guy
At-Large," who will be producing video in a reality-televisionformat. Fans can
catch all the video at the Keith Haney Racing
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Keith-Haney-Racing/.On that page, fans can also see exclusive photos of a second-generation
Haney racer, Logan Haney, who debuted in a Junior Dragster at Tulsa Raceway
Park earlier this week."I didn't think I could have that much fun watching someone else race," Haney said.
"He 16.6 at 29.73 mph, and it was awesome. He told me he isn't racing for
Keith Haney Racing. He said, 'I'm Logan Haney Racing.'The side of his car said
'LHR,' not 'KHR.'"Keith Haney is ready to challenge for the 2015 PDRA championship as
the season begins this weekend at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas.
