DragChamp Top 10 List
1 – Doug Foley Jr.
Two-seater grabs the top spot this week in the Laris Motorsports Insurance Top 10 List after winning $130,000 at the Firecracker Nationals on Sunday. On Friday, Foley drove the Chris Gulitti owned dragster to a runner-up finish in the $30K race. His outstanding performance secured the #1 spot this week.
2 – Matt Dadas
Matt Dadas enjoyed a successful warm-up to the SFG Half Million when he ran himself in a $10K final at US131 over the weekend. Pretty sure the competition doesn’t want this guy to get on a roll going into the highest paying race of the season.
3 – David Bell
Double-0 David Bell grabs the three spot this week on the strength of his $15,000 victory at the Great American Red, White, and Blue race. A week earlier Bell had a $10K runner-up and semifinal finish at the Kentucky Bottom Bulb Bash
3 – Jordan Eaker
Jordan Eaker shares the #3 spot this week after an outstanding weekend in Holly Springs. Eaker won the GABR Shootout and made the semifinals in one $20K and quarterfinals in the other $20K!
4 – Joe Santagelo
Joe Santangelo continues to shine on the NHRA national event trail. Competing in Stock and Super Stock, Santangelo came up one round short of the double after winning Stock at Norwalk before falling to Tyler Bohannon in the Super Stock final.
5 – Gordon Smith
Houston, Texas based Gordon Smith secured the #5 spot this week after doubling up in the 7.0 Index class at the No Prep Kings race at Houston Raceway. The win is his third Index victory in two weeks and his 7th of the season. I am officially crowning him the 7.0 King of Texas.
6 – Big $$$ Winners
There were a number of big money winners over the weekend including Chris “Boy Baby” Jones and Buddy “Forreals” Ferrell who both earned $20K victories at the GABR race in Holly Springs. Kyle Rumley joined them with his $15K Bottom Bulb victory. Mike Kroszer won $30K at the Oil City Classic in Canada and Shane Pope won $30K at the Firecracker Nationals.
7 – Zach Smith
Zach Smith, aka Dumpling, grabs his first Top 10 spot on the big car list after winning his second $5,000 race in the last few weeks. The 16 year old grabbed his first $5K win at the ACE Summer Slam and followed with a second $5K victory the past weekend at the Lil Bucks Hootenanny.
7 – Randy Folk
Randy Folk, promoter of the Million Dollar Drag Race, shares the #7 spot this week after posting a runner-up finish in the Firecracker Nationals $130K main event. Folk also posted a quarterfinal finish in Friday’s $30K.
8 – Chevy Reeves
Chevy Reeves takes the #8 spot this week after posting back-to-back late round finishes at the Oil City Classic. Reeves found himself in the $10K final one night and the next he posted a semifinal finish in the $30K race.
9 – Blake Combs
16 year old Blake Combs enjoyed a tremendous weekend at Capital City Motorsports Park. He kicked off the weekend with a win in the Footbrake class on Friday night. He returned to the Footbrake final on Saturday where he settled for a runner-up finish. On Sunday, he continued his winning ways taking two entries to 5 cars in Footbrake. He dropped one at 5 and the other at 3 cars but that wasn’t the end of his day. He was also racing his Jr. dragster which he parked in the winners circle to finish the wildly successful weekend.
10 – Taylor Pofahl
DragChamp Pro member Taylor Pofahl grabs the #10 spot this week after racing to a No-Box win and runner-up at Music City. This was his fourth final in the last six weeks and his second victory during that stretch.
