When Alan Kenny won the 2012 NHRA Super Comp national championship, it instantly went to No. 1 on the list of accomplishments during his long racing career.
"It's like a fairy tale season," said Kenny in an interview after winning the 2012 title. "If you're a drag racer, the NHRA world championship is your World Series, your Super Bowl, whatever you want to call it. Every year, you lay in bed at night when you can't sleep thinking, 'You know, if I could just win a couple early, maybe I'd have a shot.' "
