DragChamp Top 10 List
1 – Slate Cummings
A week after making the split at the $160,000 Firecracker Nationals, Slate Cummings drove south to Texas where he dominated the Top Bulb class on Sunday at the Summer Heat Nationals at I-30 Dragway. Competing in the Sunday $30K, Cummings drove both of his entries to the final round to sweep the class and pick up a rather large check!
2 – David Harvey Jr.
David Harvey Jr. found success at the BTE World Footbrake Challenge after winning Sunday’s main event. Harvey collected a $25,000 check in the process. Even more special was the fact that Harvey was still double entered at six cars. With six cars remaining, Harvey won with his first entry and returned to race his son, David Harvey III in his second entry. Harvey III came out victorious against his dad but fell in the semifinals to prevent the father/son final. Harvey Jr. sealed the deal in his remaining entry to become a WFC champ.
3 – Johnny Ezell
Last week Johnny Ezell snagged a $20K runner-up at the Great American Red, White, and Blue $20K’s in Holly Springs. JBR followed that performance with another strong showing at the Summer Heat Nationals at I-30 Dragway over the July 4th weekend. Ezell lost in the semifinals of the first $30K race of the weekend but went the distance in the $40K race. With $40K on the line, Ezell stopped Scotty Richardson in the final round to earn the largest payday of the weekend.
4 – Adam Davis
Adam Davis outlasted a field of over 500 cars to win the most prestigious footbrake race on the planet. In the Saturday final, Davis defeated Ernie Humes to claim the big check!
5 – Peeps Pennington
Peeps Pennington continued his recent hot streak over the July 4th weekend after winning the Friday $30K at the Summer Nationals at I-30 Dragway. The win comes on the heels of his two-victory weekend the previous week at the Great American Red, White, and Blue $20K’s. Peeps closed out his weekend at I-30 with a semifinal finish in Sunday’s $30K.
6 – Steve Collier
Steve Collier has been on a tear as of late. Prior to winning the $8,000 Gamblers race at the WFC, Collier picked up three wins in four finals in the weeks leading up to the WFC. His streak of five final rounds occurred over four weeks at four different race tracks.
7 – Ernie Humes
EH3 rolled into the World Footbrake Challenge on a heater. His runner-up finish in Saturday’s WFC main event was his fourth final in five weeks which included three wins!
8 – Rod Schaeffer
Rod Schaeffer won back-to-back $5,000 races on Thursday and Friday at World Wide Technology Raceway in St. Louis to lock down the #8 spot this week.
9 (tie) – Lane Cavar
Lane Cavar showed out on the west coast this weekend picking up a $5K win and runner-up at Bremerton Raceway.
9 (tie) – Jake Howard
Jake Howard made the finals at both of the Summer Nationals $5K No-Box races over the weekend. He won the Friday $5K and settled for runner-up on Sunday’s $5K.
10 (tie) – Luke Bogacki
Luke Bogacki continues to shine on the NHRA Super Gas tour this season. Bogacki won S/G at the Division 3 Lucas Oil race at Norwalk over the holiday weekend. In six races this season, Luke has been to five finals and won on three occasions. While it’s only July, he’s definitely the odds-on favorite to win the Super Gas World title.
10 (tie) – Wesley Lockhart
Wesley Lockhart closes out the Top 10 this week after another winning weekend. In the last few weeks Lockhart collected wins at the Kentucky Bottom Bulb Bash, a $5K at the Great American Red, White, and Blue race, and this past weekend won $2K at Beacon Dragway.
