Last week during the 2023 PRI Show, four drivers announced their intent to race in NHRA’s Top Fuel class in 2024.
Among those four drivers was Tony Stewart, who will take over for wife Leah Pruett behind the wheel of the Tony Stewart Racing dragster as Pruett goes on hiatus to focus on starting a family.
Next, Swedish racer Ida Zetterstrom, the 2023 FIA European Top Fuel champion, will run a part-time schedule in the NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series with JCM Racing.
Jacob McNeal took over for Buddy Hull’s Top Fuel operation and will compete at nine national events in 2024. And finally, Shawn Reed is returning to full-time competition as the owner and driver for Shawn Reed Racing.
