Johnny Ahten, a fire captain in Santa Clarita, is racing his NHRA Top Alcohol Fuel dragster in the Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Winternationals at Pomona Raceway this weekend.
The 40-year-old from Newhall has been racing since 1999. He has been driving top alcohol dragsters for eight years.
Some of his best drag racing moments came at Pomona. He made it the semifinals once and laid down the best run of his career, 5.25 seconds down the 1000-foot strip, in 2010.
