2006 SHUCKS AUTO PARTS NATIONALS – SAME DAY COVERAGE

Sat, 2006-07-29 11:03

Reigning NHRA POWERade Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher raced to his second victory in his last three starts Sunday at Pacific Raceways to continue his rapid climb up the points standings. The

three-time champ has gone from eighth place to fourth in the last four races — including three straight final round appearances — and has closed to within 150 points of Doug Kalitta’s series lead with his win at the $1.4 million Schuck’s Auto Supply NHRA Nationals presented by Lucas Oil.

Whit Bazemore and Allen Johnson joined Schumacher in the winner’s circle as each ended long winless streaks with victories here. Bazemore had gone 31 races without a win until beating points leader and teammate Ron Capps in the Seattle finale, while Johnson ended a 34-race dry spell by

downing surprise finalist Tom Martino, who was racing for just the second time this year.

Schumacher had little trouble beating Dave Grubnic in the Top Fuel final with a 4.690 at 321.96 mph in his U.S. Army dragster to Grubnic’s 4.761 at 316.75 in his StriVectin-SD dragster. It was Schumacher’s 32nd career victory and second at this track.
