DragChamp Top 10 List – 07/08/20
1 – Steve Sisko
Steve Sisko locked down the top spot after his historic weekend at the JEGS SFG 1.1 Million in Michigan. Not only did he drive a wheelstanding Nova to the 1.1 Million main event win on Saturday, he jumped into a Camaro on Sunday and won the final $100,000 race of the weekend. An unbelievable performance that will be remembered for years to come. Congrats to Steve and his family on their amazing accomplishment.
2 – Corey Griffith
Corey Griffith lit up the World Footbrake Challenge after taking home wins on Thursday and Friday at the legendary event. The WFC is highly regarded as the toughest footbrake race to win but that didn’t stop Corey. He led off the weekend with a $5K Gamblers win on Thursday and then kept the streak alive by capturing the Friday $10K victory as well.
3 – Bill Swain
Outside of Steve Sisko, no one performed better than Bill Swain in the JEGS 1.1 Million main event. Not only did he race to a runner-up finish, Swain also drove his second entry deep into the split on Saturday. With over 600 entries in the main event, Swain’s run was impressive to say the least.
4 – David Myhre
David Myhre earned the three spot this week after a dominating performance at the California Gold Rush held at the beautiful Sonoma Raceway. Myhre drove through a tough field of West Coast hitters to earn the Friday $10K victory and followed that with a $20K victory on Saturday. David defeated 5x NHRA World Champ Justin Lamb in both finals.
5 – Lane Dicken
Lane Dicken earned the five spot this week after capturing a huge $100,000 win at the SFG 1.1 on Thursday. Dicken stopped Jeff Ledford in the final to secure the first $100K payday of the week.
6 (tie) – Hunter Patton
Hunny Wayne continues to impress even on the biggest stages in drag racing. His week at the SFG 1.1 Million was no exception as he raced deep into eliminations at almost every race. After losing at five cars in Friday’s $20K wrap up, Hunter’s car was tore down by tech officials. After a thorough inspection, in which he passed with flying colors, Hunter drove through the 600+ car field in the main event only to far one round short of the final. He claimed yet another huge payday and proved to everyone once again just how talented he is.
6 (tie) – Jeff LaSalle
Jeff LaSalle kicked off the weekend on a high note after taking the $25,000 Shootout victory at the California Gold Rush. LaSalle is no stranger to big money finals as he is a consistent figure in final rounds on the West Coast. Learn more about Jeff in his DragChamp Spotlight.
7 (tie) – Gary Williams
Gary Williams will go down as one of, if not the best, bracket racers of all time. He once again showed out at the SFG 1.1 Million when he defeated Hunter Patton at five cars and Ana-Lise Dekalb in the final of the $20,000 Warm-Up race.
7 (tie) – Justin Lamb
NHRA Super Stock and Stock ace Justin Lamb enjoyed a huge weekend at the California Gold Rush after reaching the finals on Friday and Saturday. Justin is a monster off the bottom bulb and that showed after he drove to back-to-back runner-up finishes against his delay box counterparts.
8 (tie) – Jeff Ledford
Jeff Ledford followed his recent $50,000 win at the Derby City $50K with a $100K runner-up finish on Thursday at the SFG 1.1 Million. This dude has been winning for a long time and is showing no signs of slowing down.
8 (tie) – Brandon Taylor
A year ago at the SFG 500K, the only lights BT turned on were on an ambulance. After he fell ill and spent the week in the hospital in 2019, Taylor returned to the 4th of July event leaner, meaner, and ready to race. On Sunday, his recovery came full circle as he drove his DragCoverage dragster to the $100K final round. Although he would ultimately settle for a runner-up finish, it was awesome to see BT doing what he does best on the big stage.
8 (tie) – Anna Lise Lablanc
Anna Lise earned a spot on the list after racing her way past 700+ racers to runner-up the $20K Warm-Up Race to Gary Williams. While the Warm-Up didn’t pay as much as other events during the week, the race included the same brutal field as the other races during the week. And she gets points driving a wagon to the final round too, pretty cool car huh.
9 (tie) – Andrew Adkins
Although he didn’t cash the biggest check of the week, I’m not sure anyone made more headlines than Andrew Adkins. Adkins drove his Duster to the $10K win at the WFC on Saturday but that was not the biggest story. Andrew drove his car over 300 miles to the track, changed the tires, pitched a tent, and then proceeded to drive through the tough field to earn the prestigious win. Look for more on this story in the coming weeks on DragChamp.
9 (tie) – Scotty Bodmer
While the eyes of the bracket racing world centered on Mighigan and Bristol, Scotty Bodmer quietly racked up a big weekend at Maple Grove. Scotty made two finals on the weekend winning the $10K combined with a runner-up in the $20K.
10 (tie) – Brian Cireddu
Another racer that made noise in Michigan was Brian Cireddu. Cireddu drove his Camaro down to six cars in the 1.1 Million main event before bowing out. What makes this special is he was leaving off the bottom and getting it done against the toughest top bulb racers in the country.
10 (tie) – Shawn Hart
Shawn Hart wraps up the Top 10 List after a strong outing at the California Gold Rush. Hart picked up two $5K Shootout wins on back-to-back nights. And he did this in two different race cars which made his performance even more impressive.
Allen Furr earns a Shout Out this week after an impressive showing at the Carolina Coalition race at Mooresville. There Allen won 13 straight rounds on two entries to meet himself in the final round.
Summer Field has been on a tear at Walla Walla Raceway and Boise Raceway. In eight Jr. Street races between the two tracks, she’s been in six finals and won five of them. That’s pretty awesome!
