Scotty Cannon Finds Winner’s Circle For First Time in Top Fuel
Creasy, Spiess, Commisso and Noakes also claim Wins at Mopar Canadian Nationals
Scotty Cannon made his bones in the Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com Pro
Modified class, winning a record 28 national events and taking home six
world championships. At the Knoll Gas Nitro Jam event at Grand Bend
Motorplex Cannon was able to win another Ironman…but it was unlike any
of his previous ones.
Cannon stepped into a Top Fueler this season, driving Evan Knoll’s ’06
Hadman Dragster. Sunday during the Mopar Canadian Nationals presented
by Castrol he was able to break through and head back to the Winner’s
Circle for the first time in 10 years by stopping Jim Cavaleri in the
final round. Cannon clocked a 4.967 at 293.92 mph to better Cavaleri’s
5.071 at 256.06.
“I really have to thank the Canadian fans,” Cannon said. “They were
just incredible. It’s been 10 years since I’ve won one of these, but
this win was just as sweet as the last one.”
