SCHUMACHER BURNS TOP FUEL COMPETITION TWICE IN TEXAS

Written by Susan Wade, Photo by Roger Richards.

 

Even in the years that have offered a Top Fuel Shootout bonus race, Tony Schumacher hasn’t gotten two trophies at a single event, let alone two Wally statues.

But the U.S. Army Dragster driver added the unique and prestigious honor to his long list Sunday at the Texas Motorplex with his 3.891-second, 318.62-mph victory over top qualifier JR Todd in the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals.

However, the Gray Motorsports team of brothers Shane Gray and Jonathon Gray, and Dave Connolly had other ideas.

It's disappointing to reach an NHRA final round then see the opponent receive the trophy, but this weekend at the AAA Texas FallNationals yielded a double disappointment for Pro Stock Motorcycle veteran Steve Johnson.

The lone Suzuki rider in the Countdown to the Championship field was unable to rebound Sunday from an engine change following the semifinals and conceded the triumph to Andrew Hines at the Texas Motorplex. The Harley-Davidson racer earned his fifth victory in six finals this season and regained the points lead from earlier-exiting teammate Eddie Krawiec.

"This is my hometown; we race here a lot locally on the weekends," Coughlin said. "Winning here is obviously very, very special. Everyone in my family that has raced here has won here. To walk away with the Wally at this track means a lot more than a lot of people think."

ps   low qSomeday somebody is going to ask Shane Gray, "How is it that you lost in Pro Stock eliminations – to your brother, no less – but ended the day excited because you walked away as the class' No. 1 qualifier?!"

No telling how the witty driver of the Gray Motorsports Camaro might answer that.

SCHUMACHER STEAMROLLS TO TOP FUEL VICTORY AND POINTS LEAD

Written by Susan Wade, Photo by Roger Richards.

 

Tony Schumacher has won seven Top Fuel championships and done that in a variety of ways. He has the NHRA record for the largest points margin, and he owns the NHRA record for the narrowest of points margins. And he fell just seven points short in 2012 to Antron Brown.

And Tony Schumacher is a patient man. That's helpful, because he has had to be patient this year after starting the Winternationals this February at Pomona, Calif., in 12th place. But it's all paying off right about now.

FUNNY CAR’S COURTNEY FORCE HAS CLEAR MISSION IN TEXAS

Written by Susan Wade.

 

c force 2NHRA Funny Car fans at the AAA Texas Fall Nationals might be a little confused, but Traxxas Ford Mustang driver Courtney Force knows exactly what’s happening. And at least overnight Friday, she was the dominator.

Considering the Brainerd race finished at Indianapolis and the Charlotte race will wrap up here at the Texas Motorplex that’s south of Dallas (where last year the Traxxas Nitro Shootout bonus races carried over from the U.S. Nationals), it’s no wonder this second race of the Countdown to the Championship seems more complicated than usual.
