WARSAW – Since making his NHRA debut in 2014, Kyle Wurtzel has had the goal to take his top fuel dragster to Lucas Oil Raceway for the US Nationals.
Wurtzel, a financial planner, began racing in 2006 in a nostalgia nitro funny car. Wurtzel’s car was the second in the Midwest to break the five-second barrier. In 2010, Kyle was able to get licensed and start his top fuel racing career.
“I’m really looking forward to being a part of this event,” Wurtzel says. “Indy has so much history and this has always been considered the “big” race of the year. To have the opportunity to run there is unbelievable.”
The Chevrolet Performance Nationals will take place from August 31st-September 4th.
“We are going to try our best and with any luck, we will be racing in the finals that Monday!” says Wurtzel.
