DragChamp Top 10 List

1 – Tom Aretakis Jr.

Tom Aretakis Jr. became the first racer to ever win the Original $50 Grander in Michigan leaving off the bottom. Not only did Aretakis make history over the weekend, he also won a $10K on Thursday to kick off the history making weekend.

2 – Troy Williams Jr.

T-Rock grabs the #2 spot on the Top 10 List this week after winning $50 large at the Race TB Promotion $100K. His ranking isn’t as much based on his winnings as much as how he did it. Williams staged against 2021 Racer of the Year Jeff Serra with $50,000 on the line. As the tree fired, Williams realized Serra was timed out so he backed up and they tried it again. This time both racers staged and T-Rock let go .000 to go with his dead-on 8 ET to lock out Serra who was .010 at the hit. His display of sportsmanship and subsequent 8 pack show why he’s one of the best bracket racers on the planet.

3 – Dave Connolly

Dave Connolly has been riding the hot hand recently which carried him to a $100,000 victory at the Race TB Promotions 100K main event. The win comes on the heels of a pair of semifinal finishes in July at the SFG 500K.

4 – Matt Dadas
