Justin Ashley leads NHRA Top Fuel in Reaction Times in his Rookie Season

Top Fuel Driver and GuardLab Brand Ambassador Justin Ashley leads the NHRA's Premier Top Fuel division consistently in average reaction times by 2/100ths of a second, and was just nominated as finalist for Rookie of the Year.

Ashley recorded his career quickest run last week at AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, and his best start as a professional Top Fuel driver.  Strapped into his 11,000 HP Strutmasters.com Top Fuel Dragster powered by MANSCAPEDAshley's average reaction time is .039 seconds, with the next closest being .058, almost an entire .02 seconds faster than the rest of the field. 


After securing his first Wally at Summer Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway earlier this year, Ashley will look to build on his 10 round wins so far this season, currently sitting at 7th in the TF Standings for 2020, with two more races to go.

On the Monday Morning Racer show, with Lee Craft, Ashley describes how wearing a neuromuscular guard is surprisingly comfortable and beneficial, and how it improves his overall performance:



In speaking to Lee about his ARC-PRO Lower Performance Guard,

"I played football for almost 10 years and went through a number of different mouthguards. I was probably that one guy who would chew on his mouthguard. For me, it was never comfortable, and felt like something I HAD to wear instead of something I WANTED to wear. Then when I put the GuardLab mouthguard in, it's just super comfortable. They do a 3D Scan of your teeth so it literally fits perfectly, so it's certainly comfortable and sits in the mouth really nicely and feels good. So, I'm able to be in the car, it's one less variable, one less thing to think about, so I can focus and do everything I can to do my job!"  - Justin Ashley, NHRA Top Fuel Driver


Mouthguards in motorsports is new trend that Ashley believes may soon catch on - with tire shake and G-force power felt in the driver's seat, plus the safety benefits - he believes the added comfort and stability from his GuardLab mouthguard is a contributing factor in staying calm and stress-free right before takeoff.
