Anthony Elrod
TonyHeadshot2.jpg      As the youngest son of a Four Time World Champion, Tony has experienced drag racing and specifically winning first hand since birth. His first race was in Crossville, Tennessee September 6, 1981; he was three weeks old. Yes, his father was in the winner circle that day!
     Since that time Anthony has honed his skills by his father’s side, in the shop at home, on the road, to and from tracks and at each event. So when it was time for Tony to obtain his license to run in Top Dragster and Quick Rod at IHRA events, naturally he was ready. 

      In the fall of 2002 Tony attended Burwell Kendrick Wicks Filter Driving School and prepared to run in the Quick Rod class in 2003.  The first event of the season was the WCS meet at Tri-State Dragway and Tony’s first win! He went on that year to have two more final round appearances and become a finalist to be IHRA’s “ROOKIE OF THE YEAR”. 
      Anthony has competed in IHRA National Events and WCS meets having dozens of final round appearances. Anthony won the IHRA Canadian Nationals in Cayuga, Ontario, September 24, 2006.  It was Anthony’s first Ironman! 
     He has multiple National Event wins. In 2009 he had 4 final rounds with 4 wins.  He made a career achievement winning 2 National Events in the same weekend in different categories.  His goal is to follow in his fathers’ footsteps and win a World Championship.
