The 18th Annual Fitzgerald USA NHRA Thunder Valley National will have a Carter County flair this weekend.

Roan Mountain native Tim Freeman will compete in the Pro Stock division for KB Racing at his home track Bristol Dragway. It will be Freeman’s second appearance this season after he competed at Chicago two weeks ago.


Freeman will pilot one of KB Racing’s Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros during the weekend.

When he is not driving, Freeman is the assistant crew chief for KB Racing. The Roan Mountain resident has also competed in the DER Bracket Racing Series at Bristol.

In addition, Freeman’s children Gracie and Garrett Freeman have competed in the Summit Racing NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League with the assistance of his wife Chrystal.

The 18th Annual Fitzgerald USA NHRA Thunder Valley National opens on Friday with eliminations set for Sunday.
