Thunder Valley Nationals

Tony Schumacher, John Force, and Mike Edwards collected victories at the 10th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway in Tennessee.
The event was the third straight of four in June and the results produced to a new points leader in Funny Car, a substantially tighter battle in Top Fuel, and additions to the all-important top 10s as the Countdown to the Championship regular season heads down the backstretch. Racers won’t have much time to celebrate nor lick their wounds as they load up and head for Norwalk, Ohio, for next weekend’s Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, the 13th of 17 events in the Countdown's regular season leading up to the playoffs that begin at the annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend.
