Win Makes Brad Jackson Favourite for Title

A well-deserved fourth round victory by Brad Jackson in the Lucas Oil Dragster makes him favourite to secure his first Super Pro Championship at Santa Pod next month.

The York-based driver, who is a full-time VW-trained mechanic, fought back from 21st place out of 29 in Q4. Fast reactions and good dial-in times swept Brad to the final, where he beat the high-flying Mark Bailey, who red-lighted under the pressure.

Brad drives a Worthy Dragster as part of the three-man Nick Good Racing Team. The car was built in the USA and is powered by a Big Block Chevrolet V8 Enderle that’s methanol Injected. The 9258cc, 565 Cu inch engine generates 940 bhp and attains 0-175 mph in 7.62 Seconds.

Brad, who has won the European Finals twice in the last three years, is having a great end to the season. With one round to go, he leads the Super Pro Championship by 160 points.

“It’s not all over by any means,” says Crew Chief and father Wayne Jackson. “Any one of the top six drivers have a real chance of victory.”

As usual, Lucas Oil will be right behind Brad at the National Finals at Santa Pod Raceway, 6-7 October 2018.
