The Qatar Racing outfit has put a halt to the funding that backs the two-car nitro fuel cars operated by Alan Johnson Racing.
The decision was made in the last couple minutes of 2014 and all team members were notified this morning.
Alan Johnson is quoted by saying, “We are obviously surprised and disappointed about this completely unexpected turn of events,” Alan Johnson Racing team owner Alan Johnson said. “Our plans for the 2015 NHRA season were nearing completion starting with pre-season testing next week in (West Palm Beach) Florida and the first race of the 2015 NHRA season a month from today in (Pomona) California. Many things are uncertain, and our situation is obviously still evolving. We are currently exploring our options, and we hope to have more news in the near future.”
The Al-Anabi Racing Team won the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel world championship in 2010, 2011 and 2013 with over 42 race wins
Alan Johnson in his career has won 11 championships
