Tony Stewart Racing Pulls Drivers Leah Pruett & Matt Hagan From DSR For 2022!​

Mopar Ambassadors Move To New Team For 2022...​


1634237957858.png

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) had a major shakeup today, with two huge announcements surrounding the Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) camp. The first announcement was the return of 8x Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher to full-time competition in 2022. Schumacher will be piloting Leah Pruett’s current ride with her Crew Chief Todd Okuhara tuning the car.

But the biggest announcement of the day was from the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) and World of Outlaws Sprint Car owner Tony Stewart. Stewart announced that his Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) identity would be fielding two entries (1 for Top Fuel, 1 for Funny Car) for the 2022 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.

Yes a huge loss. Just want to thank them for being great ambassadors of the Mopar brand and wish them good luck in future. They will probably be Ford drivers now and of course lose my support. Sorry been Mopar all my life.

They won't get my support joining Ford.

It will be a huge loss for Mopar if they switch to Ford.
Even bigger now that Ron Capps has mentioned yesterday was his last day at DSR. As of right now that means Dodge/Mopar has no actual know drivers in nhra in the top 3 divisions

I don't know these Drivers if they aren't Driving for Mopar, good on Ford for poaching, but once they move on I could care less about them.

Unless you know something we don't know, nomanufacture has been announced. As it stands right now mopar has no factory drivers for next year as it seems DSR is getting out of running a team

Its looking better for 2022 for TSR and Mopar. Tony will be the only DSR in 2022. Sounds like TSR is getting both Leah and Matt's teams and equipmment.

Tony Shoe got some of Leah's team, if not all of them (i know he got her crew chief). Antron Brown is taking his team with him and Matt is taking his with him as well. I'm gonna guess that Ron will be taking his as well wherever he goes. I know Leah got a new crew chif for next year who was under Matts team Tony Stewart Racing Names Crew Chiefs for NHRA Program
