Austin Logan and Jon Siegel dominate in Florida, Joe Foley doubles up on the practice tree, and much more in the 2/19/20 edition of the DragChamp Top 10 List.
2/12/20 – The weekly sportsman racing Top 10 List is back for another edition. With limited racing action over the weekend, this week’s list includes more local Saturday night race winners. Even with the lack of big events, several racers showed out at the home tracks.
The weekly DragChamp Top 10 List highlights the top performers in sportsman drag racing! We look for the best performers at events across the country and rank them each week.
Special thanks to DragChamp Nation and your help each week putting this list together. We couldn’t do it without the nominations submitted to our Facebook page.
DragChamp Top 10 List – 02/19/20
1 – Austin Logan
After a three-final weekend at PBIR a week ago, Austin Logan stayed red-hot picking up the No-Box victory at Bradenton Motorsports Park this weekend.
To recap, he doubled a week ago on Saturday winning Box and Jr. Dragster, was runner-up on Sunday when his junior broke before the final, and he won No-Box this past weekend. That’s a pretty impressive streak and good enough to steal the top spot this week!
2 – Jon Siegel
The Wheelie Wagon is on fire in 2020! Jon followed up a No-Box win and runner-up at PBIR a week ago by winning Box at Bradenton last weekend. For good measure, Siegel added a semifinal in No-Box to the win at BMP.
3 – Joe Foley
Joe Foley had a weekend to remember after a dominating performance at the Holston’s Practice Tree Showdown. He began the weekend by taking two entries to the final three in the Shootout race. After winning the Shootout, he went on to win the $5K main event.
I heard he hit a slot car race on the way home and won that too!
4 – Doug Lambeck
Doug Lambeck should have made the Top 10 last week but was mistakenly left off. The veteran Division 7 class racer won Competition Eliminator at the season opening Winternationals to go back-to-back at Pomona. Lambeck also closed the 2019 season with a win at the Auto Club Finals at Pomona. His back-to-back victories locked down a Top 5 spot this week!
5 – Gage Burch
In much the same fashion as he started 2019, Gage Burch is rolling through the Florida bracket racing scene with ease. It seems as though he doubles up almost every week. This week he barely missed the double after posting runner-up finishes in Super Pro and No-Box at Bradenton.
With two guaranteed million dollar races on the 2020 calendar, the competition better hope 2020 isn’t a repeat of 2019!
6 – Donovan Williams
Speaking of being on a roll, Donovan Williams has been right there with Gage week in and week out. The talented duo have doubled Gage’s Mustang in any and every class they can. While Donovan’s biggest win on the season was a $3K victory recently, he’s also been a constant fixture in the finals and semifinals every week.
7 – Gavin Pine
Gavin Pine enjoyed a huge weekend at the Division 7 Jr. race at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. After waiting five long years for his first win, Gavin doubled up in Phoenix sweeping the 13-14 year old class on the weekend.
8 – Joe Soucek
Competing at the famous Duck X Promotions Lights Out 11 race, Joe Soucek drove his Nova to the Open Comp win. To make it even more special, Joe’s opponent insisted on a re-run after the final. Joe agreed and beat him again to take the title.
9 – Braden Bettis
Texas Jr. racer Braden Bettis made the long haul to Phoenix payoff after winning the 15-17 year old class at the Division 7 Jr. Championship race. Another Texas racer that performed well in the desert was Graeme Rufenacht who was the 15-17 runner-up in the first race of the weekend.
10 – Camden Teel
8 year old Camden Teel drove his 11.90 Jr. dragster to the win at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park to earn his first NHRA Wally! Camden won six rounds to take the 6-9 year old class victory.
