One of the SEMA Show’s most popular and longest-running events, the NHRA Breakfast is often considered a “can’t miss” for attendees, and yesterday’s breakfast was no exception. To help kick off the 50th anniversary of Pro Stock, the 2019 breakfast brought together five superstars of this highly competitive category to discuss “Fifty Years of Pro Stock.”

The drag-racing legends and current fan favorites included Herb McCandless, Warren Johnson, Greg Anderson, Erica Enders and Jeg Coughlin Jr. For the second year in a row, FOX broadcast announcer Brian Lohnes served as the panel moderator, asking probing questions to provide attendees with a revealing glimpse into a category that bases some of its appeal on secrecy. Attendees heard some of the best-kept stories that drove the Pro Stock’s tremendous growth throughout the years.

Following the breakfast, the NHRA hosted an autograph-signing featuring the panel’s five drivers in the organization’s booth (#10000).
