Patterson Racing has had its name in drag racing for more than 30 years, and it looks like that will continue indefinitely, as Todd Patterson and the Husky Liners® sponsored Chevy Cobalt won the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Division 5 race and reset a national record at SRCA Raceway in Great Bend, Kansas (May 4, 2013).

In honor of Great Bend's contributions to hot rodding and drag racing history, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback recently issued a proclamation naming April 27-May 5 as KANSAS SPEEDWEEK. The SRCA Dragstrip in Great Bend, Kansas has a rich history within the hot rodding culture, as the host of the first ever National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) sanctioned racing event in 1955.

Patterson and the Chevy Cobalt qualified 3rd in Competition Eliminator in the A/SMA class, won the event and reset the National Record to 7.89ET! The Patterson Racing/Husky Liner® Sponsored Cobalt was also the only car at the event to set a National Record!

Todd also qualified in Stock Eliminator with the Husky Liners® sponsored COPO Camaro in the No. 2 position in BB/SA at -1.07 under the index.
