Steve Torrence brought up a baseball reference in talking about his recent winning streak, so let's do the same: Over the last 56 races, Torrence is batting .393. That'd be a cinch for the Hall of Fame in baseball, but that's other-wordly in NHRA drag racing.
Torrence won the Virginia NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Virginia Motorsports Park, scoring his 22nd win in the last 56 Top Fuel races. The next best driver over that span has six victories.
