DragChamp Top 10 List
1 – Chris Bear
Chris Bear ran over the field at the ACE Summer Slam to grab the #1 spot this week. Bear kicked off the weekend with a runner-up in Thursday’s $5K. He followed with a $20K victory on Friday and a second $20K victory on Sunday! To drive a door truck through a 400 car field to make three finals is one thing but it’s even more insane that it was only his second outing of the season! Congrats on an amazing weekend bud.
2 – Wade Archer
Wade Archer grabs the #2 spot this week after winning three times in Boise last weekend. Archer won the Friday night $5K bracket race, the Super Gas Shootout, and then captured the Super Comp Wally on Sunday!
3 – Tommy Jackson II
Tommy Jackson has enjoyed a wildly successful 2023 thus far. After winning three straight races at Holly Springs, including $20K at the Dream Team race, he parked his ’69 Camaro and proceeded to make 5 finals in 8 days in his Trans Am. A change of cars and venues didn’t matter as his win streak remains intact.
4 – Big Money Winners
There were several big money bracket races this past weekend including the No Limit Promotions Spring King of the Creek, the ACE Summer Slam, and the BOGO Bracket Bash. Chris Gulitti and Andy Lloyd cracked’em for $25K at the King of the Creek in Maryland while Randy Sheuer grabbed a $20K payday at the ACE race. Todd Piper won the $20K main event at the BOGO Bash at Cedar Falls.
5 – Nathan Mendenhall
Nathan Mendenhall won his fourth straight race this past weekend at his third different track. His recent tear began with a runner-up at the Jim Harrington race. He then won at Numidia, Maryland, and Mason Dixon in consecutive weeks. He followed that with a $2,000 victory at the King of the Creek.
6 – Seth Lancaster
Seth Lancaster had a memorable couple of weeks on the track. A week ago he borrowed a truck and proceeded to cash for $12,500 at the No Delay Nationals. A week later his borrows a different race car and finds a similar result after winning $4K at Baileyton the Goodtime.

His results from the weekend bring his season win total to five wins in seven finals including a No-Box victory at the Twin10’s.

Bubba and Michael Paschal
The Paschal family have been a handful to deal with lately which earned them a shout out this week. Bubba drove his S-10 to a win and a runner-up at Piedmont while Michael posted a couple of semifinal finishes, one at the King of the Creek $25K, which comes on the heels of his $100K SFG runner-up a couple of weeks ago.
Ernie Humes followed up his $50K runner-up a week ago with a win at Piedmont this past weekend.
Mitchell Seymore goes back-to-back at Baileyton the Goodtime to earn a shout out.
