Richie Crampton wins Top Fuel final in Minnesota
BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) — Richie Crampton raced to his fourth Top Fuel victory of the season Sunday to close out a record-setting day at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals.
Top Fuel and Funny Car teams took advantage of cool, overcast conditions at Brainerd International Raceway to break all four national records in those categories.
In Top Fuel, Antron Brown set the elapsed-time record at 3.680 seconds, and Spencer Massey broke the speed mark at 332.75 mph. In Funny Car, Jack Beckman set the time record at 3.901, and Matt Hagan broke the speed mark at 329.58. Hagan also had the quickest Funny Car time in history at 3.879, and Shawn Langdon the quickest Top Fuel time at 3.664, but they failed to certify those times.
Crampton beat Brittany Force in the final round with a 3.695 at 325.30.
Robert Hight won in Funny Car, Erica Enders in Pro Stock, and Eddie Krawiec in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
