Matt Hagan with crew chief Dickie Venables and assistant Michel Knudsen had a record-setting 2016 season by shattering world and track records throughout the country with their Mopar Express Lane Dodge Charger R/T powered by Pennzoil.
In the summer, Hagan, 34, became the first Funny Car driver to reach 335 mph when he went 335.57 to set the world record that remains heading into the 2017 season. A few months later, he completed a run in a world record time of 3.822 seconds.
The cattle farmer who lives in his Christiansburg, Va., with wife Rachel and their three children, has matched both records in 2017.
The 2011 and 2014 NHRA Funny Car world champion started 2017 by winning the first two titles of the season.
