26th NHRA California Hot Rod Reunion – BUGS

Backup Girls…or as they are known…’BUGS’

Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

One of the important positions on a team is that of the backup girl…or ‘boys’ at times, although we’re here to honor the ‘BUGS’, opening with Nitro Hotrods Magazine’s Backup Girl of The Year, Jana Treur, who has worked with many teams over the years, although currently with the nitro burning Jailbreak funny car, driven by Brad Thompson, who also happens to be Jana’s fiance’…

While often the wives, or girlfriends, as well as relatives take part, there are often ladies that will jump in to help a team in need, sometimes seen directing a funny car one round, a top fuel dragster the next…it’s all in the love of the sport!

Check out these beautiful ladies, or ‘BUGS’…and enjoy it as much as we did.
