When you go musky fishing, you really can’t have high expectations but for some reason I sure felt good about the trip.

With a 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season that has not gone the way as planned to this point, count Richie Crampton as one who is excited to be heading to Brainerd International Raceway this weekend.

Crampton and his team have made noticeable improvements in recent races, including a runner-up finish in Sonoma, giving the Top Fuel standout added momentum heading to an important race where he is the defending event winner.

The 35th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd Minnesota is also the penultimate race of the regular season before the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship begins, and Crampton can sense the growing excitement of his team surrounding his 10,000-horsepower Lucas Oil dragster heading to his sponsor’s race in Brainerd.
