Legendary racer Roy Hill returns to NHRA drag racing with Vincent Nobile, Mike Bell in tow15 Jun 2019 Jacob Sundstrom, NHRA National Dragster Associate Editor.
Roy Hill settled in, gripped the microphone and a wide smile broke out on his face.
“We’re going to have some fun,” he said, while sitting between legendary car builder and former NHRA Pro Stock racer Vincent Nobile.
Former doesn’t seem fair; at least, not anymore. Hill announced the formation of an NHRA Mountain Motor Pro Stock team with Nobile and Mike Bell as drivers. The team will have engines built by Jon Kaase and Ford Mustangs built by Jerry Hass. That immediately, in Hill’s estimation, puts the team in the driver’s seat.
“I look at Mike Bell and bringing him back and I also look at bringing a young driver on board,” said Hill about bringing on Nobile. “I’ve known John Nobile throughout his entire racing career, and I’ve seen his son Vincent grow up. Vincent is the kind of person that I want to drive for me.”
Nobile cut his teeth driving 500-cubic inch Pro Stock cars for Elite Motorsports and racked up 13 wins in that category. He has competed in two NHRA Mountain Motor Pro Stock events in 2019 alongside his father, who raced in MMPS his entire career.
“I’ve been itching to go racing because this is what I and my father love to do,” said Nobile. “These cars are very similar to what I used to drive, the 500-cubic inch Pro Stock cars. These have a lot more power obviously and I’m pretty sure we’re going to be running a Lenco transmission and a RAM clutch.”
Haas is a legendary car builder in doorslamming categories. Many of the top Pro Stock teams, both Mountain Motor and otherwise, use cars designed by Haas.
“Roy Hill is going to have an awesome team,” said Haas. “He’s not going to pull any punches and he’s going to go straight for the top. That’s the only way to do this. I’m very grateful to be apart of this.”
There has not been an NHRA Mountain Motor Pro Stock schedule released for the 2020 season. Stay tuned for more information on NHRA.com.
