Do you want to get “SCHOOLED BY SCOTTY”?
Scotty Richardson held his first drag racing school in the Virginia area on March 24th and 25th at Richmond Dragway. Richardson holds 6 World titles and multiple series and track championships. He has earned numerous wins in big dollar bracket racing as well. Richardson decided to offer these affordable 2 days schools all across the US to improve the abilities of the everyday racer. I guess you could call them “Grass Root Racers” . Which brings to mind the new series that Richardson is putting together with help of many National Vendors such as JEGS, Hoosier, TCI to name a few.
Listen to what some of the racers that attended had to say about the School:
“Where do I start, I had never meet Scotty before the school in Richmond. I had heard his name a few times from racers before, but what stood out the most for me was his wins at the WFC in Bristol. When I seen he won the 2nd one I told my wife "This guy Scotty won it again" At that point I knew he had too know what he was doing so when I seen he was doing these school's I had to get signed up.
Now for the school it's self
For me the best part was the on track work we did, this gave us the chance to try different things we had learned in the class and be able to do it again if we messed up, had we had the shoot out we would not have been able to do this. I learned a lot from his school with the on track part really putting it all together for me..At this point i feel it is the best money I have spent on racing...This will be my 5th year in dragracing..
Hats off to Scotty and Richmond dragway”

"Scotty's school was well worth every penny. No question went unanswered and no topic went uncovered. Instead of the gambler's race, we chose to do a practice format which not only helped apply what we learned to the track, but also allowed Scotty to see us make more than just a couple of runs and really pick apart what he thought we were doing right and wrong. If anybody is questioning whether to spend this money, I would highly suggest it because it was really worth the money."

“Old driver” learns new tricks at school
By Wendy Curling
Thirty years of drag racing adds up to a lot of seat time and a whole lot of experience. So what’s a seasoned veteran, do to improve his game? He goes back to driving school.
Johnny Grubb of Chesapeake found new love in an old flame after attending Scotty Richardson’s Drag Racing School held at Richmond Dragway in March. Founder and operator, Richardson teaches everything from the basics to how to win. The five time NHRA World Champion promises after attending one of his schools “there will be nothing left to learn”all for the bargain price of $150.00 for the seminar only and 300.00 for the on track part.
Grubb wholeheartedly agreed as he took what he learned and drove straight to Northeast Dragway’s Top Eliminator winner’s circle Saturday night in his first race since attending the school. “ I took much of what I learned and applied it here tonight, and it really worked,” boasted Grubb. “I learned things I never thought about before.”
While Grubb gave praise to the school in addition to a well-prepared track surface, he was quick to point out other important factors to his success. The 750 horsepower 528 cubic inch Mopar engine that powers his 2004 Race Tech dragster was built by Kurt Bosch of Magnum Machines. Grubb’s wife Brenda, of thirty-seven years, is his crew chief and first mate who he in his words “depends on for everything.”

Jerry Williams from Berryville, Va attended Scotty's Richmond school and has been killing the competition ever since! The first race after the school he won top et at Sumerduck Dragway then the next race he won Top at Old Dominion Dragway with his dragster. Last night he switches to his Top Sportsman Lumina and wins the Top Sportsman race and runner ups in the et race! Unreal!
