DragChamp Top 10 List

1 – Carson Griffith

Carson Griffith parked his shorty dragster in the number one spot this week after winning over $20,000 in the last two weekends. A week ago Griffith collected a $12,000 payday at Kil-Kare Dragway. A week later he claimed a second victory at Kil-Kare when he won $11,000 at the Boo Banger race.

2 – Sugar Shane Carr

Sugar Shane teamed up with Donny Burleson earlier this season which has paid off handsomely for both racers. Carr, driving Donny B’s orange dragster, won $30,000 at the Mike Smith Memorial in Montgomery. He was also doubled late on Sunday which earned him the MVP award for the weekend. The win comes on the heels of a runner-up at the OG Million last month.

2 – Timmy Smith

Timmy Smith raced to an emotional victory at Montgomery on Sunday when he won $30K at his dad’s memorial race. The victory could not have come at a better time or place for the talented bracket racer.

3 – Chase Wiliams

Chase Williams grabs the #3 spot this week after winning over $100,000 last week in Dallas. Williams not only won the JEGS Allstar race but he also locked up the Comp Eliminator Bonus Fund championship and the associated $100K payday.

4 – Darian Boesch

I’m not sure anyone puts more effort into their racing program than DragChamp Pro member Darian Boesch and it shows with his on-track performance. In the last couple weeks, Darian has four final round appearances and a semifinal finish. After making two final round appearances a week ago in St. Louis, Darian repeated that feat at the Texas Stampede of Speed. Tuesday night he raced to the finals in both Top Sportsman and Top Dragster taking the $5,000 win in his Camaro.

5 – Brandon Miller

Texas NHRA FallNationals

Brandon Miller lands in the #5 spot this week after racing to a win and a runner-up at the JEGS Allstars race in Dallas. Miller qualified to compete in Top Sportsman and Top Dragster and put both cars in the final round. He split the finals getting the W in his dragster while falling short of the double in his TS entry.

6 – Rusty Cook

Rusty Cook makes a Top 10 showing this week after winning Super Gas at the JEGS Allstars for the third consecutive year! Most racers will never qualify for the JEGS Allstars once, let alone three straight years. But to win it three straight is unreal.

7 – Trey Dalton

Trey Dalton sits in the lucky #7 spot this week after cashing for $20K at the Virginia Motorsports Park Triple Threat bracket race.

8 – Todd Piper

Todd Piper parked his dragster in the Super Pro winners circle on Saturday and Sunday at Mid-America Dragway. The weekend was made even more special when he raced his father in the final on Sunday.

8 – Curtis Smith Jr.

Curtis Smith Jr. grabs a Top 10 showing after winning twice on Sunday at Darlington Dragway. Smith won a both a 1/4 mile race and an 1/8 mile race at the Carolina Class Racers Association event.

8 – Andrew Goss

Andrew Goss grabs a Top 10 spot after doubling up at Mo-Kan. Goss parked his dragster and GTO in the winners circle after winning Super Pro and Sportsman.

9 – Nick Kay

Nick Kay almost swept Friday’s action at the Staging Light Promotions Carolina Footswap Nationals. Kay took both entries to the semifinals where he dropped one with a .000 redlight. Kay finished the job in the finals to capture the $10K check and Eagle trophy.

10 – Joe Barney
