Revving Up for Drag Racing Season


It's time to rev up for drag racing season which begins in Pomona next weekend.

One man in Santa Maria has a lot to do before then.

Alan Johnson owns, Alan Johnson Performance Engineering, an engine factory in east Santa Maria.

He's spent all winter perfecting 30 engines; that's 70% of the 44 race car engines that will be competing in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

He’s also managing his own team, Al-Anabi.

Of course he hopes Al-Anabi brings home the trophy this year.

But they don’t, his company will probably be a “part” of the winning team.

The Mello Yello drag racing series is one of the largest in the country.

It begins February 7th and tickets are from $40 to $50 dollars.
