Army Conquers The Big Go, Again
Tony Schumacher drove his 'The Sarge' Top Fuel dragster to victory in the NHRA's US Nationals yesterday. The event, held in Indianapolis, is drag racing's equivalent to the Indy 500, or the Daytona 500.
Schumacher's victory is the ninth time he has won this event, a record. Previously, he was tied with Big Daddy Don Garlits with 8 wins at Indy.
The win propels Tony into the NHRA's countdown, a series of races to end the season which will determine the Top Fuel champion for 2012.
