Emmett Thomas races in the N.H.R.A. Jr. Drag Racing Series in the 10-12 age group. He has been racing part time for 3 years, with the 2009 season being his first full-time effort in the class. An Honor Roll student at Tortolita Middle School, Emmett enjoys mathmatics and science, as well as playing trombone in the school band.

A former Little League player in Marana, Arizona, Emmett was credited with the league's first unassisted double-play and was a member of his local Cub Scout troop. His interests outside of Drag Racing include illustrating and creating cartoon charater's personalities, playing basketball, building model cars, participating in his church and taking care of his German Shepard, Jonah.

Emmett won his first ever N.H.R.A. Jr. Divisional Championship event in Tucson, AZ in April 2009, competing against the regions finest racers, and winning rounds against the current points leader and Top 5 competitors. Qualifying with a stunning 0.001 reaction time, Emmett continued to progress through the 5 rounds of competition with excellent reaction times and consistant driving performance, including a semi-final round win with a perfect 8.900 against an 8.90 Index, his second 8.90 of eliminations.

Emmett continues to progress in his studies in school, as well as competing in the S.I.R. Dragway 2009 Jr. Championship Series, and has plans this summer to promote Junior Drag Racing with the local media, participating in displays and non-racing events, as well as following the N.H.R.A. Full Throttle series and the progress of his favorite driver, Tony Schumacher.

Primary Ride

Emmett Thomas races a Western Racing Components 140" Junior Dragster, built by Dean Lenarth. The car is maintained by Steve Emery, Jeffery Eggersdorf, Emmett's brother Avery Thomas and crew chief Martin Thomas. Propulsion is provided by a McGee 3"x3" methanol-burning junior dragster motor built by Chris McGee from McGee Cams (www.mcgeecams.com), and transmitts the power through a Terminator clutch package by Performance Aluminium Products to the Hoosier slicks. Safety equipment from Taylor Motorsports, Impact Racing and G-Force Racing Gear keep Emmett safe on his sub-9 second rides down the dragstrip.

Primary support from Relentless Lighting Design, TLS/ Performance Systems, Wild West Engineering and Gorr Fuel Systems and Lubricants keep Emmett's racing efforts progressing forward, and associate support comes from Mother's Car Care Products, Encinitas Surfboards and Drag Racer Magazine.
