Henderson, Nev., drag racer Justin Lamb can call himself a world champion again after securing the 2015 NHRA Lucas Oil Series Super Stock World Championship in Pomona, Calif., this past weekend.
The veteran driver added that title to his 2013 Stock Eliminator world championship, and he also won the NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 championship this year as well. Lamb earned the hard-fought victory after finishing 12 points of Nicholas Morris of Louisville, Ky., and 13 clear of Brad Zaskowski of Grand Rapids, Mich.
"It's pretty cool," said Lamb, who has also won NHRA Division 7 championships in Stock Eliminator and Comp Eliminator in recent years. "There are perks that come along with winning, and winning in another class is beneficial. I can basically race in any NHRA event in those two classes for the rest of my life. It means a lot."
Lamb is believed to be the first Las Vegas-area driver to win two NHRA Lucas Oil Series world championships. He is happy to have the 2015 title on his resume and knows he will be hungry to hit the road again in 2016 after recharging during the holidays.
"It's so exhausting trying to race for points, and it's so mentally draining doing it, but I'm sure January or February I'll be ready to go again," he said.
