DENVER – NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock competitor V. Gaines has announced that he is retiring from competition, effective immediately.

Gaines confirmed the news via a statement on his official Facebook page on Thursday afternoon.

“Well over 20 years ago we started this racing adventure. We have made some amazing friends along the way, met some of the most loyal fans a race team could ever want to have, we have formed a partnership with Kendall Motor Oil that will never be forgotten,” Gaines said in his statement. “We have always taken our racing serious but more important we have always raced to enjoy weekends and have some fun.

“Today we announce our retirement from NHRA Pro Stock racing. This decision is purely based on the fact the fun has left this chapter in life. We are thankful for all the support from our friends, fans, and family, and most of all from Kendall Motor Oil.”

Gaines has scored four NHRA Pro Stock victories, with his most recent victory coming in 2012.
