2020 NHRA U.S. NATIONALS - SPORTSMAN NOTEBOOK

YANTUS DOMINATES 2020 DODGE HEMI SHOOTOUT

 

It's a good thing Stephen Yantus didn't put much stake into the odds.

Fact is, with 18 consecutive round wins from Dodge Mopar Hemi Shootout icon Jimmy Daniels headed into the 2020 event, the odds were pretty much against the Charleston, SC-based Yantus. For Yantus, Friday's race-within-a-race at the Denso NHRA U.S. Nationals was only his third time racing the event in four years.

Yantus created his own odds as he stopped an upset-minded Steve Commela in the finals of the prestigious event. His consistent barrage of 8.4-second elapsed times was enough to seal the deal, his first ever, with an 8.410, 158.28.

MEYER, BELLEMUER, AFFRONTI PACE FIRST DAY U.S. NATIONALS QUALIFYING

Megan Meyer, competing in her final NHRA U.S. Nationals before stepping away, made the most of the opportunity by driving her way to the provisional No. 1 qualifying position in the Top Alcohol Dragster division. Joining Meyer atop their respective leaderboards were Sean Bellemeur (Top Alcohol Funny Car), and Frank Affronti (Comp).

Meyer announced earlier in the week she'd be stepping away from drag racing to concentrate on starting a family wasted little time in letting the competition know what they'd be missing, as he thundered down the Lucas Oil Raceway quarter-mile en route to a 5.231 elapsed time at 275.51 miles per hour.
