Bayou Boyz Claims First NHRA National Event Victory

“This is a huge win, and it’s really special to me for a number of reasons,” said Britt Cummings. “We made a plan to include a full NHRA schedule to our racing program. I don’t mean to sound cocky, but at the time my brother Slate, my dad and I felt like we’d experienced a lot of success. We’d always been fortunate on the IHRA side of racing, and we figured a lot of that would just carry over, but for a number of reasons it just hadn’t until now. With three IHRA World Championships and many event wins, we could never seal the deal on the NHRA side, until now.”

Cummings drove his Mullis Race Cars built dragster to the win, knocking off a who’s who list of 8.90 competitors on his way to the title. With three seasons of going winless on the NHRA side, I feel like the monkey is off our back, he said.

Winning this NHRA national event victory was very important to the Bayou Boyz. “Obviously everyone points at Indy, or the Gators or one of the classic events as the race they want to win,” Cummings said. “For me it’s the JEG’s SPORTSnationals. It’s one of the most enjoyable races of the year, and it’s in our backyard at my favorite facility.”

Cummings Motorsports is a family business from Hammond, Louisiana. “Bayou Boyz Racing has ten cars,” said Cummings. “We use K&N Engineering Air and Oil Filters on all of our vehicles. With K&N I’m faster and very consistent. The K&N Filters never give us a problem.”

The Bayou Boyz Cummings Team is off to Tulsa, Oklahoma for an IHRA Division 4 Pro-Am event before continuing their pursuit of multiple championships in both NHRA and IHRA.
