US Army Drag Racing - 100 Event Wins

Tony Schumacher, driving 'The Sarge' (US Army sponsored Top Fuel dragster), won the NHRA event in Topeka on Sunday. It was Tony's second win of the season.

US Army sponsored drag racers have now won 100 events over the years:

Tony Schumacher, Top Fuel, 60 Event wins
Don Prudhomme, Funny Car, 24 Event wins
Angele Sampey, Pro Stock Motorcycle, 10 Event wins
Antron Brown, Pro Stock Motorcycle, 6 Event wins

It is worth noting that Tony, Angele, and Antron all drove for Don Schumacher Racing (Tony's father). The Army dropped sponsorships of the bikes a couple of years ago, Tony's dragster is the only currently running Army car.

Army Strong!
