Schumacher Ends Losing Streak
Seven-time Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher ended a 32-race winless streak in the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway. Ron Capps topped the Funny Car field, and Mike Edwards won the Pro Stock competition. Schumacher beat Doug Kalitta in the final. Schumacher's reaction time was four-hundredths better than Kalitta's, leading to Schumacher's slower but winning 3.8-second pass at 342 mph. In Funny Car, Capps raced to his second win of the season in his sixth final-round appearance in a row edging out rookie Alexis DeJoria in the final with a 4-second pass at 312 mph. Edwards claimed his fourth victory in a row at Bristol Dragway with his holeshot win over local favorite Allen Johnson in the final.
