Ahten Brings A-Team to Pomona Battleground

Pomona, CA – The battle that was the Vegas Regional has now moved to Johnny Ahten’s backyard. Pomona is Johnny’s home track, and he is not taking any chances. The full Ahten Racing Team has been assembled from around the country. This weekend’s 51st Annual Auto Club NHRA Finals at the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona has twenty-five entries in the Top Alcohol Dragster class and reinforcements were necessary.

“We are expecting a dogfight, and we have a full regiment ready,” said Johnny Ahten. “We have my dad and Crew Chief Al Ahten who, along with Team Partner Howard Katano, will be our Generals. Our nitro commandos include Bob Ahten, Kevin "Shark" Colvell, Chuck Costabile, Todd “Rocky” Rockwell, and John Rogers. Pomona is our home, so there are plenty of distractions. Family, friends, and the desire go rounds and capture the flag. Our A-Team will give the strength to continue the battle we fought in Vegas.  We qualified for a tough Vegas Regional field last weekend and we are bringing that positive home.

Providing added support to Ahten Racing’s Pomona campaign are local representatives from Fireman’s Brew, who provide crucial supplies and support. Also in attendance will be One 11 ink. They are the Santa Clarita, CA company that wraps the Stump Puller, and the new Mini Puller Ahten Racing golf cart. Big Ben from DJ Safety will also be around making sure everyone stays safe. THR5 Communications will handle the media. Past and present firefighters from LA County will also be in attendance if necessary.

Johnny Ahten’s A-Team is about to descend upon the Pomona Fairplex. The Island Renovations / Combust Filters Dragster is already there, and waiting to start the campaign. The support staff is in place and the battle for the 51st Annual Auto Club NHRA Finals begins on Thursday afternoon – Battle on!  To stay informed with the latest please visit:
