The NHRA champion also drove a second car in the Competition Eliminator class. Fletcher lost in the final round. “I went to Pomona hoping to split and get that first win light,” said the sportsman racer. “I won Super Stock first and that was awesome. The competition eliminator was another issue. It broke a rocker arm going into the momentum at half-track. Unfortunately that’s the way it goes. That car gets better with every race but we’re just short of knocking on the door to the winners circle.”
Fletcher has 14 consecutive wins since November 2007 in Super Stock at the Pomona facility. It was also his fourth national event win in a row. He lists wins in Richmond, Vegas, Pomona and Pomona. Fletcher's 18-year-old son is starting his career.
“My son Thomas raced the Stock class in Pomona,” said Fletcher. “Unfortunately he was stranded at JFK airport because of bad weather and missed his practice runs. He was only able to make one qualifying pass before the first round of eliminations and lost first round. The good news is Thomas and I will race next week in Phoenix.”
Fletcher uses K&N Stubstack (85-0200) on the competition eliminator and K&N oil filters (HP-3002) on all three vehicles. “K&N oil filters are ingenious,” said Fletcher. The nut on the bottom makes it easy to change. My engines outlast and outperform thanks to K&N.”
