It was the second NHRA Four-Wide event in just over a month, as the NGK NTK NHRA Four-Wide Nationals rumbled into Charlotte, North Carolina this past weekend. And the event gave racing fans plenty to cheer about. So let’s get to it—here’s this week’s NHRA Wrap-Up.

2021 NGK NTK NHRA Four-Wide Pro Stock Results

We couldn’t be happier to report that rookie driver Dallas Glenn brought home his first career event win. (We sat down with Glenn a few months ago to talk about his foray into Pro Stock driving; you can read it here.) Glenn’s 6.540-second ET/209.88 mph pass was enough to best other up-and-coming Pro Stock racers Mason McGaha, Fernando Cuadra Jr., and Troy Coughlin Jr. in the final round.

We honestly wondered if we’d ever be able to say John Force’s name in a Wrap Up again, after the pandemic caused him to withdraw from much of the 2020 season. But Force is back—and he’s winning. In a final round matchup with Alexis Dejoria, Cruz Pedregon, and JR Todd, it was Force’s 3.916-second, 328.78 mph pass that gave him career victory number 152.

The drought is over for Steve Johnson as he nabbed his first victory in seven years. And it was over in a big way, as Johnson not only took the win, he set a track record, notched the third-quickest run in class history, and made the fastest run ever for a Suzuki in a process. In the Final Round matchup with Matt Smith, Karen Stoffer, and Joey Gladstone, Johnson crossed the beams first with a blistering 6.729-second, 198.03 mph pass.
