Biography

2-time NHRA FC world champion (2011, 2014)
Career: 30 FC event titles

Matt Hagan and the MOPAR Express Lane/Pennzoil/Sandvik Coromant Dodge Funny Car team, led by crew chief Dickie Venables and assistant Michael Knudsen, wasted no time putting together a competitive 2018 campaign. During qualifying at the NHRA Winternationals, Hagan powered his Dodge Charger to the No. 1 spot and went on to race to victory at the season-opening event for the second year in a row.

Hagan retained the Funny Car points lead throughout the first three events and scored two more final round appearances before putting his MOPAR-powered machine in the winner’s circle in Norwalk. At the very next event in Epping, N.H., Hagan picked up another No. 1 qualifier before driving his Dodge Funny Car to victory for the third time in 2018.

Later that summer at the Dodge Mile-High Nationals in Denver, the speedster had the unique privilege of being the first amongst his NHRA competitors to debut the new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. It took Hagan and his team only two races to claim their first pole with the new cutting-edge Hellcat body.

At the prestigious NHRA U.S. Nationals, the final event of NHRA’s ‘regular season,’ Hagan raced to a runner-up finish.

The two-time NHRA Funny Car world champion qualified second for his eighth NHRA Countdown to the Championship playoff run and closed out the year with another visit to the finals in a special ‘Las Vegas-esque’ chromed-out Pennzoil Hellcat livery.
