Shelby Miekle: NHRA Jr. Dragster
How cool is it for Kristen Wootton to be the fastest driver in her family? For several years, driving a 260 mile per hour race car was a dream for Magnolia, Texas resident Kristen Wootton. Earlier this year at the DragRaceHose.com Spring Warm-Up event held at Houston Raceway Park, her dream became a reality as Wootton completed her licensing requirements for the NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster division.
Shelby started racing at age 11 in early 2006. The family purchased his first Jr. Dragster, a 2004 Bret Williamson built chassis, sponsored by Impact Racing. His first win didn’t come until 2007, but he was runner up multiple times. That first win in ‘07 was special because of the fact that he went so many rounds and he was excited to receive a trophy about 4 feet tall. In 2008, he was runner up various times and the family stepped up into a new car, a 2006 RPC Diablo chassis, with a 31/4” Mcgee Block, and a Gaged Engineering centrifugal clutch. His current best time in the 1/8th mile is 7.90 seconds at 85 miles per hour.
Kristen Wootton Racing: NHRA A/Fuel Dragster
Over the period of two days, Wootton made seven runs down the HRP quarter-mile driving the family’s recently purchased A/Fuel Dragster tuned by veteran chassis builder and crew chief, Joe Monden. Those seven runs were Wootton’s first down a drag strip in any dragster. And she handled the car like a seasoned veteran of the sport of drag racing.
In April 2010, in only her second race day start Wootton took home her first Wally, by running a 5.33 at 267mph in the LODRS Division 4 event at Texas Motorplex.
James Day: NHRA Funny Car Driver
James Day is a working man with the spunk and humbleness fans of drag racing gravitate too.
A second-generation drag racer growing up in the hot bed of the sport, Southern California, Day has literally worked his way to becoming one of the most sought after drivers in drag racing today. From front motored Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars, to the modern-day 300 mile per hour monsters of the quarter-mile, Day has driven them all. However, he didn’t start as a driver. Like everything in his life, he worked his way to the top.
Day began as a crew member on his father’s race teams as a child. He then worked with several professional teams, starting with cleaning the race car until learning all phases of mechanical duties before he ever strapped into a race car. The experience has helped Day become a more complete and proficient driver.
James is the driver of John Lindsay’s CleanBoost PERFORMANCE MOTOR OILS sponsored Monte Carlo NHRA Nitro Funny Car and uses CleanBoost 70W Racing Oil to protect his 8,000 Horse Power engine.
Currently James is driving Gary Turners Nostalgia Funny Car "The Pedaler"
Johnny Ahten: NHRA A/Fuel & IHRA Pro Fuel Dragster

Today, he is the driver of the Ahten Racing Nitro-methane powered A/Fuel Dragster. Eclipsing 270 miles per hour in less than 5.3 seconds is standard fare for the Santa Clarita, Calif. based race car driver.
When not racing, Johnny is employed as a Firefighter Specialist with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. He has moved up through the ranks to be the one who drives and pumps the fire engine. He gets to drive fast on and off the track. “Both my racing and my career can be very similar,” noted Ahten.”Both require good people skills and performance under pressure.”
Johnny uses our CleanBoost 70W Racing Oil and his car is wrapped showing our Combust Filters manufactured by Combustion Technologies.

CleanBoost Oil is glad to be part of the SynOil Racing team making sure their engine has a great 70W racing oil protecting those important and expensive parts.
At the tender age of 16 Steve made his first run down a drag strip in Grand Junction Co. in his Dad Sonnys injected SBC powered front engine dragster. After nagging Sonny for months he caved and let Steve drive. Steve was warned to follow his directions to the T or he’d never drive it again. Following those directions he blistered the quarter mile with an 11.00 pass at 100 MPH. Steve says he still remembers that first run. “Thought I rotated the earth under me” he said. That run kept him unsatisfied till he got to make another pass.
In addition to sponsoring professional drag racing teams in NHRA, ADRL and IHRA, CleanBoost® PERFORMANCE MOTOR OIL is proud to support the local sportsman racer who needs a bit of help to get their home-built cars out to their local track for some fun on a Friday and Saturday nights.
