Justin Ashley Racing announced that world championship-winning crew chief Mike Green has joined the Strutmasters.com/Auto Shocker Top Fuel dragster team. The move comes as Ashley looks ahead to the 2021 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series and a serious run at the NHRA Top Fuel world championship. Green replaces veteran tuner Aaron Brooks who tuned Ashley to his first win and a top ten finish in the shortened 2020 NHRA season.

Last season Green began the season as the tuner of the Montana Brand/Rocky Mountain Twist dragster wheeled by 2019 rookie of the year Austin Prock.  Green was crew chief on eight-time champion Tony Schumacher’s dragster and he spent time in DSR’s machine and fabrication shops.

Before he joined DSR prior to the 2008 season, Green worked at Don Prudhomme Racing, Darrell Gwynn Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing. As a crew chief, Green had led drivers to 50 wins—nine in Funny Car and 36 No. 1 qualifying positions.
