DragChamp Top 10 List – 11/13/19
1 – Larry Doty
Larry Doty pulled off the double at the Immokalee Winter Fest in Florida. He accomplished this against a talented field of top-tier big money bracket racers. Taking down two $5,000 races in the same weekend earns Larry the top spot!
2 – Paul Mosely
Paul Mosely earned a huge $20,000 win at the 15th Annual Big Bucks Bracket Race. Mosely drove through the field in his S-10 pickup to claim the victory.
3 – RJ Myers
RJ Myers was another racer with a big weekend at Immokalee. He kicked off the weekend with a $5K No-Box win on Friday. RJ made his second final round appearance on Saturday where he was the No-Box runner up.
4 – Kris Whitfield
DragChamp blogger and Division 5 star Kris Whitfield capped off a successful season by earning the D5 Super Gas championship at Vegas.
In addition to his SG championship, Kris made it to the final round in Super Comp at the Vegas divisional. His runner up earned him a second place finish in the D5 SC standings.
5 – Jimmy DeFrank / Scott Burton / Alan Kenny / Troy Grant
The Division 7 Lucas Oil divisional is always one of the most exciting events of the season. Racers come from across the country looking to earn or close out a championship. This year was no different as several racers came into the event needing a win or runner up to claim a championship.
Each of the racers listed above did just that, they made the final round in their respective classes to capture the season championship.
Jimmy DeFrank won his 50th LODRS title to lock up the Division 7 Super Stock Championship.
Scott Burton needed a final round appearance to earn the Divsion 5 Stock Championship. His runner up finish in Vegas sealed the deal.
Alan Kenny also needed to win the event to claim the Division 1 Top Dragster title. Alan took a bye in the final to earn the win and the championship.
Like those listed above, Division 5 Super Street racer Troy Grant needed a win to lock up the championship. Troy won the final and earned the championship in dramatic fashion.
6 – Ernie Humes
Ernie Humes just keeps winning! He enjoyed a successful outing at Farmington Dragway where he won $2K on Saturday and was runner up in the Sunday $5K.
7 – Johnny Brannen
18 year old Johnny Brannen proved he could compete on the big stage at Immokalee. After a semifinal appearance on Saturday, Johnny finished strong taking the $5K Box title on Sunday.
8 – Jordan Wilhelm
Just a week removed from a three-final weekend at the Southern Footbrake Challenge, Jordan Wilhelm picked up a King of the Track win at Music City Raceway in Tennessee. The thing is Jordan is from Ohio! I’m sure there’s a backstory to this.
9 – Jody Cool Simoneaux
The Simoneaux family pulled off a rare feat when three generations won a track championship in the same season. Jody came into the event chasing the leader but his father and his daughter both had big points leads. After his father and daughter locked up their championships early in the day, the pressure was on Jody.
At the end of the night, Jody found himself in the winners circle and he wrapped up the championship too. Congrats to the Simoneaux family on a special accomplishment.
10 – Sandy Wilkins
Although the Sand Flea didn’t compete this weekend, he did lock up the NHRA Top Sportsman World Championship. When Doug Crumlich went out in the fourth round at Vegas, the championship chase was over. After several top points finishes, Sandy Wilkins is your new Top Sportsman World Champion.
Just because they weren’t ranked, they still deserve some love for their amazing performances. Here’s a little something extra!
Kenny Underwood returned to 2018 form picking up a $5K win and a quarterfinal finish at the Immokalee Winter Fest.
Austin Logan impressed everyone with his $5K Box win at Immokalee on Friday. By the way, Austin is only 17 years old.
Parker Theobald came into the Division 7 divisional in Vegas in a dog fight for the D7 Super Comp championship. About 10 racers had a shot at the title but Theobald outlasted them all and captured the championship. In addition, Parker and his family put on a practice tree race and raffle to raise funds for Kyle Seipel. The two events raised over $20,000 for the Seipel family.
