2021 NHRA Rookie Of The Year Is Pro Stock's Dallas Glenn With 3 Wins, 5 Finals And 3rd In Points

What a year, what an impact made by a fantastic rookie class. Glenn was named the top rookie in a loaded class that also featured Top Fuel standout Josh Hart, who picked up two wins during his stellar rookie campaign, Top Fuel’s Krista Baldwin, Artie Allen, Joe Morrison and Buddy Hull, Funny Car drivers Bobby Bode and Chad Green, and Pro Stock drivers Mike Callahan, Rob Tucker and Marty Robertson.

As a rookie, Glenn was also in the points battle finishing in 3rd behind Greg Anderson and Erica Enders.

Glenn won the four-wide event at zMAX Dragway in Charlotte in just his fourth career start, becoming a top contender in the talent-filled category. He added two more victories this year, including a win in Topeka where Glenn posted a perfect .000 reaction time in the final round. Glenn became just the sixth driver in Pro Stock history to post a perfect reaction time in the final round. He also added a victory last month in Las Vegas, taking out four-time world champion Erica Enders with a .001 reaction time in the final round.

The award recognizes the top rookie competitor in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series. The nation’s leading auto racing journalists select the winner through a voting system based on the following criteria: number of events competed in, performance on and off the racetrack, participation in NHRA promotions, and relationships with fans, sponsors, and media.

Congrats to Dallas Glenn and looking forward to additional success in 2022.
