DragChamp Top 10 List – 09/16/20

2 – Ernie Humes
Ernie Humes continues to put his name at the top of the bracket racing world. A week removed from a late round finish at the BTE Labor Day 100K, Humes drove to a $40K victory at the Super Doorcar Challenge in Piedmont. Humes has now won $40K off of the top and the bottom!
3 – Joe Gary
Joe Gary enjoyed a big weekend at Piedmont after winning the $3,000 Gamblers on Friday, Gary took two entries down to eight cars on Saturday before falling in the $40K final to Humes.
4 – Jeff Hefler
Jeff Hefler, President of Pro 1 Racing and Safety, won his 9th…yes, that’s right, 9th NHRA Division 4 ET Finals over the weekend in Ennis. Driving his unique Ford Bronco, Hefler defeated his brother Jeromy in the final round.
5 – Lane Dicken
Lane Dicken raced down to four cars in the 100K on Saturday and cashed for $40,000 at the Derby City 100K . This comes a little over a month after his $100K victory at the SFG 1.1.
6 – Aaron Disinger
Aaron Disinger kicked off the Derby City 100K with a big $20K win on Friday. Unfortunately he went from checkers to wreckers after someone drove over his car in the pits. Ended up being someone who had a medical issue and momentarily lost control of their vehicle. Luckily, it looked like the Malibu only received minor body damage.
7 – Justin Cook
Justin Cook locked in the seven spot this week after running himself in the No-Box final round at Brainerd Motorsports Park!
