Bahrain1Racing driver Stevie Jackson was crowned World Champion of the 2019 E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Series in the United States of America.
Behind the wheel of Bahrain1Racing’s supercharged Camaro, Jackson clinched the title at the zMAX Dragway in North Carolina after winning his Pro Mod final against fellow-American Steven Whiteley.
Jackson, who is fondly nicknamed “Stevie Fast”, was able to wrap up the championship battle with one round still remaining in the 2019 season.
It is his first title in the Pro Mod category of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) series.
“I’m not gonna cry. I’m not gonna cry. Okay, I might cry,” said an obviously emotional Jackson. “This shows that anyone who works hard can be a champion. This is also for all those people who said we couldn’t do it. We did it. This all started in a hospital bed in 2018 after I crashed here [in the final round of the Four-Wide race]. Sheikh Abdullah [Bahrain1 team owner] said we were going to put together a team to go after the championship and that’s what we’ve done.”
BIC lauds the efforts of the entire Bahrain1Racing Team and in particular the determination and skill of Jackson, who has once again proven that he is one of the top drag racers in the world.
