DragChamp Top 10 List
1 – Casey Prince
Casey Prince rockets to the #1 spot on the Laris Motorsports Insurance Top 10 List this week after a huge weekend in Montgomery, Alabama. Competing at the Great American USA 100K, Prince raced to the $100K main event victory on Sunday taking the win over Champ McCrory. With the event schedule revised due to rain most of the week, the twin $30K’s were combined and ran in conjunction with the $100K on Sunday. Prince decided $100K wasn’t quite enough for one day so he made his way to the $60K final as well. He came up short in the $60K to Braden Taylor but man what a day. Two $60K+ finals in one day, now that’s impressive.
2 – Pete D’Agnolo
Pete D’Agnolo celebrated the Labor Day holiday with a couple of big performances. His run began in INDY at the U.S. Nationals where he outlasted the Super Stock field to grab the prestigious Wally. A few days later, D’Agnolo jumped in his Malibu and cashed for $30K at the Summer Fling! Two huge victories in a few days lands him in the #2 spot this week.
3 – Nasty Nick Hastings
Speaking of big performances, Nasty Nick is BACK! A week after winning $100K at the Labor Day 250K footbrake race in Bristol, Hastings made the $100K final at the Summer Fling. Although he came up short to Kyle Cultrera in the Summer Fling final, he once again proved he can win anywhere, anytime, in any class. By the way, Nick was leaving off the bottom at the Summer Fling.
4 – Kyle Cultrera
Kyle Cultrera wins $100K from the Spring Fling Bracket Races for the second time in a year. After collecting a $100K victory last year, Cultrera decided to back it up with another $100K victory on Friday night at the Summer Fling. Cultrera stopped Nick Hastings in the final to earn his second $100K payday.
5 – Braden Taylor
17 year old Braden Taylor put his name alongside some of the greats, like his dad Brandon Taylor, on Sunday when he turned the final win light on in the $60K final. With weather disrupting the schedule all week at the Great American USA 100K, the twin 30’s were combined and ran on Sunday as a $60K. Taylor, competing in his first year in a big car, rolled through the field and stopped the $100K winner, Casey Prince, in the final. I believe he also switched to a high-gear only setup in the semis!
6 – Roy Hagadorn
Roy Hagadorn has collected three trophies in the last week on his Bike. A week ago he won the Pro Bike class at Bradenton Motorsports Park and he followed by winning two Wally’s this past weekend at Gainesville. In Gainesville he won the Pro Bike class and the Super Pro class to complete the double. It was also the second weekend in a row that he shared the winners circle with his grand daughter Kylie Mocny.
7 – Garrett Griffith
Garrett Griffith added another big check to his collection when he took home the Saturday $30K at the Summer Fling.
8 – Brandon Umberger
Brandon Umberger drove the Jelly Bean to wins in Pro and Super Pro on Saturday night to earn a Top 10 spot this week.
9 – Jake Howard & Jeremy Casey
Jake Howard and Jeremy Casey were overlooked in last week’s Top 10 but we wanted to highlight their $15K No-Box victories a week ago at the CP Racing Promotions Labor Day Racer Appreciation Bash. With weather washing out a couple of days of racing, the purse was doubled up on Saturday and Sunday where both racers cashed for $15,000!
10 – Wyatt Wagner
Wyatt Wagner grabs the 10 spot this week after yet another clutch performance in his Super Stock Camaro. Wagner grabbed a runner-up finish at the NHRA D5 LODRS event in Earlville which catapulted him to the national points lead. This comes on the heels of his win at the Topeka LODRS, a runner-up at the Brainerd National, and a quarterfinal finish at the U.S. Nationals.
