2016 NHRA NATIONALS: LAS VEGAS - EVENT RESULTS
SUNDAY - BROWN CLINCHES TOP FUEL TITLE; J. FORCE, TORRENCE, GRAY AND SAVOIE WIN AT THE 16TH ANNUAL NHRA TOYOTA NATIONALS
Antron Brown secured his third NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel world championship Sunday at the NHRA Toyota Nationals.
After defeating Wayne Newby in the quarterfinals, Antron outlasted his two closest chasers, Doug Kalitta, who lost in the quarterfinal round to Steve Torrence, and Shawn Langdon, who fell in the first round to J.R. Todd, to secure the season crown.
In other drag racing, John Force (Funny Car), Steve Torrence (Top Fuel), Shane Gray (Pro Stock) and Jerry Savoie (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were event winners in their respective categories at the 23rd race on the 24 event NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule. It is the fifth race of the six-race NHRA Countdown to the Championship.
It is Brown’s second consecutive world championship, in 2015 he also clinched the title at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. His first championship came in 2012. It is the first time in seven years that a Top Fuel champion has won back-to-back titles.
“Brian (Corradi) and Mark (Oswald) and our entire team has worked so hard and I’m just privileged to drive that racecar for Don Schumacher Racing because Don makes it all happen,” Brown said. “When you come to a sport with all this access it makes dreams like mine, a kid from New Jersey, come true. My dad, uncle, everybody, they instilled it in me at a young age, work hard and you can make great things happen.”
Brown won his first race of the season at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals and had a runner-up finish at the next event, the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. A win in Epping, N.H. kept him second in points. Brown took the points lead at the Route 66 Nationals and never relinquished the top spot. During the famed West Coast Swing he made a final round appearance at Denver and raced to his fourth victory of the season in Seattle. His success continued during the Countdown to the Championship piloting his dragster to three victories in the first four races.
John Force powered his Peak Antifreeze Chevy Camaro to a 3.884 second pass at 327.19 mph to defeat daughter, Courtney Force who raced a 3.906 at 325.85 in her Traxxas Chevy Camaro. It is John’s 147th career victory, fourth of the season and sixth at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speed, fourth at the fall event.
“I’m really excited,” said Force, a sixteen-time world champion and the winningest driver in NHRA history. “I mean I never like beating my daughter. We got two wins in the Countdown just a little bit late. It’s pretty exciting when I see the stands packed. The way NHRA and the way our TV deal has really been hopping, sold out crowds, and so many things going on. To be a part of it still at my age is really awesome.”
It was the fifth time father and daughter had faced each other in a race finals, the most recent was in Denver, where John also won. John defeated John Bojec, Chad Head, and Matt Hagan in the earlier round for the win. With the semifinal finish, Hagan moves to second in the points standings, 86 behind Ron Capps who fell to Courtney in the semifinals.
Torrence piloted his Capco Contractors dragster to a 3.734 pass at 323.81 to defeat J.R. Todd’s 3.762 at 321.96 in his SealMaster dragster in the Top Fuel final. It is Torrence’s third win of the season, eighth of his career and first at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“It’s been a good weekend all together,” Torrence said. “We kind of struggled the first few races of the countdown and dropped the ball. I mean heck we had to turn it on and come up here and try to do some good. The Capco guys have really stayed focus and stayed driven and done what it took to overcome just some bad luck and a couple screw ups on my part. We have a really good team, we have a championship caliber team, I believe.”
Torrence defeated Richie Crampton, Doug Kalitta and Leah Pritchett to get to the finals while Todd faced Shawn Langdon, No. 1 qualifier Clay Millican and 2016 champion Brown in the earlier rounds.
In Pro Stock, Shane Gray raced his Gray Motorsports Chevy Camaro to a 6.719 pass at 204.76 to defeat teammate Drew Skillman for his first win of the season, fifth of his career and first at The Strip.
“It was a great weekend,” Gray said. “It was a really good weekend for me. We were talking out there I think I’ve been in nine semis this year and I haven’t won since U.S. Nationals in 2014. It was a great day. I’ve got one more race to run and then my son is getting in the car so I can’t think of a better time to win. Awesome day."
Gray had victories against Deric Kramer, Bo Butner and Greg Anderson before reaching his first final round of the season. His win moves him into third in points. Jason Line and Anderson remain in the first and second spots, respectively, after they both fell in the semifinals.
Jerry Savoie rode his Savoie’s Alligator Farm Suzuki to a 6.915 at 194.13 to defeat Andrew Hines in the Pro Stock Motorcycle final round for his second win of the season sixth of his career and first in Vegas.
“To do what we did here, we been working hard,” Savoie said. “Tim (Kulungian) went back to the shop and looked at a bunch of notes, and got on a dyno and an engine we had back home and did some work. It’s like football and anything else, the harder you work, the better you get. It all came together this weekend. No. 1 qualifier every round, and we got a fast motorcycle. It’s going to be very, very interesting when we get to Pomona.”
Savoie defeated Scott Pollacheck, LE Tonglet, and Matt Smith in the early rounds and is now three points behind Harley-Davidson teammates Hines and Eddie Krawiec who are tied for the points lead.
The final race of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series 2016 season, The Auto Club NHRA Finals, will be Nov. 10-13 in Pomona, Calif.

Millican will line up against Terry Haddock in the first round of eliminations.
“We know we are capable of running with anyone and we simply have to put together four good runs on Sunday,” said Millican who was also the No. 1 qualifier at the U.S. Nationals. “We’ve made good runs and we will continue to make more good runs. For the little single car team that we are, I am unbelievably happy with everything. It’s going to be great. It’s just going to keep getting better. It really is. I truly believe that.”

”We got our act together with that .871,” Beckman said. “It was a sigh of relief. I told the guys when they picked me up at the top end in the tow vehicle, ‘That should at least keep us in the top four.’ No way I would have bet that would have stayed No. 1. It’s pretty gratifying to leave with the green hat for being No. 1.”
Matt Hagan has the No. 2 spot and a matchup with John Hale in the first round while sixteen-time world champion John Force is third and will face John Bojec for the first time in his career. Points leader Ron Capps is in the fourth position and will race Paul Lee in the first round.

“We made some adjustments overnight and came out this morning and hit the bullseye,” Anderson said. “My car made two great runs today and I think it’s ready for race day. Great recovery after yesterday. We grabbed some of those small points and those are very important this time of year. So I feel great. I feel great on Saturday night.”
Drew Skillman is in the No. 2 spot facing Shane Tucker followed by Alex Laughlin who will see Jeg Coughlin Jr. in the first round. Points leader Jason Line holds the No. 6 spot and will race veteran Allen Johnson in eliminations.

“Every year this time of the year we usually step up,” Savoie said. “Hopefully this year we can give them a run for their money. The points are collecting. We qualified No. 1 all four rounds. I said yesterday we should have run an .88 and today we came back and ran an .88. It’s exciting, it really is.”
Points leader Eddie Krawiec is in the No. 2 spot and will race rookie Melissa Surber in the first round. Defending world champion Andrew Hines is third and is going to race against Joey Gladstone in eliminations.

FRIDAY - HAGAN, PRITCHETT, SKILLMAN AND SAVOIE LEAD QUALIFYING AT VEGAS
Matt Hagan powered to the Funny Car provisional No. 1 qualifier Friday at the 16th annual NHRA Toyota Nationals.
Leah Pritchett (Top Fuel), Drew Skillman (Pro Stock) and Jerry Savoie (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were the qualifying leaders in their respective categories at the 23rd race of 24 on the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule. The NHRA Toyota Nationals is the fifth race of the six-race NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship.
Hagan ran a track elapsed time record 3.872-second pass at 329.18 mph in his Mopar Express Lane / Rocky Boots Dodge Charger R/T for the qualifying lead at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Currently third in points, Hagan has raced to five No. 1 qualifiers this season.
“I think today was pretty cool because we had cloud cover,” Hagan said. “The track was tight, it was good out there. The groove is very narrow so you have to watch what you’re doing. All-in-all we had a good day and tomorrow is another day so we come back out tomorrow and fight hard again and just try to scoop up as much points as we can.”
Sixteen-time Funny Car world champion John Force is qualified second after pushing his Peak Antifreeze Chevy Camaro to a 3.872 at a track record speed of 331.94. Force’s speed was also a career best. Points leader Ron Capps is currently third.
Pritchett piloted her Pennzoil Top Fuel dragster to a 3.705 pass at 326.63 during the second qualifying session to set the track elapsed time record. She will be racing for her second No. 1 qualifier of the season and of her Top Fuel career.
“Talk about living a dream right now and being with the best team out there and the best people in my crew,” Pritchett said. “I’m enjoying it. We are keeping our head down but you have to enjoy it for a little bit. Learn from what we just did and move on and just consistently do that over and over again and that’s what we’ve been doing these last races. Vegas has always been kind of good to me, our car number is 777 so just going to keep rolling with it and staying focused and staying in the zone.”
Currently qualified in second is Doug Kalitta followed by reigning world champion and current points leader Antron Brown. Kalitta currently trails Brown in points by 150 points.
In Pro Stock, 2015 Road to the Future winner Skillman raced a 6.681 run at 204.94 in his Chevy Camaro during the second qualifying session. Skillman is looking for his first No. 1 qualifier of the season and fourth of his career.
“We had a rough start. We’re getting a good run now,” said Skillman, who won the most recent race in Dallas. “We are starting to learn the car a little better. We struggled really bad at the beginning of the Countdown and we think we are going a better direction, as it showed now. We’re hopeful for the future.”
Skillman’s time puts him ahead of Shane Gray in the number two spot and points leader Jason Line in third.
In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Savoie rode to a 6.904 pass at 192.66 on his Savoie’s Alligator Farm Suzuki in Friday’s first qualifying session to hold the provisional top spot. Savoie has one No. 1 qualifier this season and six in his career.
“With the points deal, I’m going to say like we say in Louisiana, we say ‘mo points’ and we take them all if they give them to us. As a rider you try to do the same thing every time. It’s up to the crew and the crew chief to put the tune-up in it. Tim (Kulungian) and the guys they are great. They keep it together.”
The Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson team of Eddie Krawiec and Andrew Hines hold the second and third spots, respectively.
