This sure as heck is an NHRA season of the "repeating winners"...  2016 NHRA Funny Car champion Ron Capps and his trusty NAPA crew scored their sixth win of the 2017 season yesterday at the Fallen Patriots NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway in Elwood, Illinois. An unbelievable 6th trip to the winner's circle for points leader Capps and his Dodge Charger nitro flopper, proves that Ron could very well be on his way to his second NHRA championship... Another driver who has his finger on the "repeat" button is Top Fuel stalwart Steve Torrence. The Rt. 66 race saw Torrence and his Capco Construction dragster team secure their fifth win of the 2017 NHRA tour. Torrence is on the warpath!... Pro Stock Motorcycle threat LE Tonglet clinched his fourth 2017 season "Wally" at the Fallen Patriots Nationals. Tonglet's the two-wheeled points leader with his slick Nitro Fish Suzuki... Drew Skillman "only" scored his first victory of the season in the Pro Stock category, making him the 9th different winner of the class in 13 different events. It was his 4th career win. Driving the Skillman Chevy Camaro, he defeated Erica Enders in her Elite Motorsports Camaro in the final round doorslammer duel (I guess DRU race predictor Frankie should be considerably happy about Erica making it to the finals at the Rt. 66 race)... In two weeks the NHRA roadshow plays at Bandimere Speedway for the Mopar Mile-High Nationals -- Will the streak of "repeat winners" stay the course?!?-- Or will we see some different names in the win column?!? -- We'll just have to wait and see, folks... Hang on to your seats, this is one sizzling NHRA season!!!...
