Statement from LVMS President Chris Powell on new NHRA President Peter Clifford

"We're looking forward to a long relationship with Peter Clifford in his new role as president of the NHRA. We have worked closely with Peter for many years, and his knowledge and passion for drag racing make him the perfect person to lead NHRA for years to come. I also want to thank Tom Compton for his dedication and his friendship. He has been there with us since the day we broke ground on the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 1999. We wish him well."
