Pomona, Ca. -- Native Californian and Los Angeles County Fire Captain Johnny Ahten, pilot of the Clean Boost Performance Ahten Family Racing Dragster is more than ready to contest the 51st running of the Kragen - Oreilly Auto Part NHRA Full Throttle Winternationals.

“The weather this weekend is looking a bit sketchy as well, but we are at our home track and can make accommodations to do whatever it takes to compete in Pomona”.
Ahten gives special thanks to all of the members of his crew that help pull their racing efforts together: his Dad, Al Ahten, Howard Katano, Kevin “Shark” Colvell, Todd “Rocky” Rockwell, his uncle, Bob Ahten, and Co Crew Chief - Consultant, Don Jackson.
