He is what many call a racing machine, A&B Tire Pro Eliminator Champion Mark Winterbottom.
Putting together a championship drive is tough. Ask anyone who was lucky enough to come out on top and they likely will tell you it’s a daunting task. That isn’t lost on Mark Winterbottom. But, to see him week in and week out you wonder if ever fazes. He is what many call a racing machine. Mark captured his 9th A&B Tire Pro Eliminator championship this year in dramatic fashion. Yet, even when he was locked into a tight, four-way battle with brothers Jared Kinson and Jason Mazzotta, and long time friend Joe Silva, Mark kept his cool.

It doesn’t come as a startling revelation that capturing a championship in any category at New England Dragway is the result of determination, skill and hard work. This year’s Indy Auto Parts Super Pro Champion Ray Knight is the epitome of those attributes.

But, if you ask him about the most thrilling aspect of this year’s hard fought battle you will not hear stories about margins of victories measuring in the ten-thousandths or near perfect reaction times. Instead he will tell you it’s the opportunity to share the podium with his son Steven who captured the E.C.O.P.E. Junior Dragster crown.
