Jimmy Ålund is coming to Santa Pod as the racer with both the number one plate and the most recent full race experience. Jimmy raced the first six races of the NHRA season in a KB Racing entry. No Wally this year for Jimmy, but the lessons he has learned in the biggest Pro-Stock fields in the world will certainly be valuable.

Only one week to go and the FIA European Drag Racing Championship 2015 kicks off with The Main Event at Santa Pod Raceway. After a long winter, drivers, teams and fans are looking forward to the start of the new season. New cars, new drivers, new colours and six exiting races to go.
