DragChamp Top 10 List

1 – Peter Biondo

The Terminator only races when he wins, lol. Peter Biondo made a rare appearance behind the wheel last weekend and promptly captured the $20,000 main event at the Numidia 150. Not sure how he does it but his winning percentage must be through the roof in recent years as he tends to only race a handful of times each year but seems to win every time he races.

2 – GABR Dream Team Winners

Although the weather hampered racing activities at the Great American Bracket Races Dream Team Challenge, Britt and Gaylon found a way to complete the event and crown new champions. Team Donny B, better known as Deez Nuts, raced to the Top Bulb team championship on Sunday. On the Bottom Bulb side, Team Daniel Riddle outlasted all comers to captured the championship.
