Congratulations to Clint Neff!
Yes that is right, Clint Neff. I know, Mike Neff is number one in Funny Car, but Clint Neff, son of longtime racer Ron Neff won his first Wally in Comp Eliminator at the Mile High NHRA Nationals in Denver CO. Clint ran his Ford 4-cylinder K/A roadster with E-460 style Pro Stock cylinder heads against Jirka Kaplan’s AA/AM blown '27 Ford Altered in the finals on Sunday (VIDEO). Clint is a customer of Burns Stainless and the unmistakable reverse-cone Burns-merge collector displayed on the right-side of the car tells you that this is a serious contender.
Clint’s run against Kaplan in the final was pretty impressive, one could say he is a giant slayer. Clint essentially grew up around drag racinf. Since the early 80’s, Ron Neff was one of the best Comp racers around, and many will remember his Jolly Rancher sponsored Econo-dragster of 1987. Withthat legacy, Clint was bound to be a winner. Clint and his wife, Jaime, have two kids Brady and Cali. Read more at DragCentral.com.
