Welcome to the DragChamp sportsman drag racing Top 10 List presented by In Motion Solutions.
8/28/19 – The Top 10 list took a different direction this week due to the lack of any huge big dollar bracket races and no NHRA national event. That opened the door for a number of local racers to grab a spot on the list.
As typical, it took either a huge multi-win weekend or a combination of multiple finals over several weeks to crack the Top 10. With so many great performances, it’s always difficult to narrow it down to just 10 competitors.
DragChamp Top 10 List
1 – KC Pesnell
After winning $50,000 at the SFG 300 Series event at Montgomery Raceway Park, KC set the drag racing world ablaze. The internet erupted when someone mentioned KC is only 14 years old.
This young man has already accomplished two things most adults never will, he won a $50K bracket race and he mastered social media. He accomplished this years before he was even old enough to get a driver’s license. And for that, KC Presnell earns the top spot this week.
