A number of NHRA POWERade Series world champions were crowned at the official awards ceremony at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City in California earlier this week. The most notable winner was Tony Schumacher who enjoyed his fifth consecutive trip to the stage to pick up his championship trophy.
There was a lot of racing action worth taking note of this past long weekend at the U.S. Nationals, but despite that there was only one name on everybodyâ€™s lips: Schumacher. The 39-year-old drag racer simply blew fans away with his performance as he swept in and set even more records.
It would seem that the name Schumacher is synonymous with speed and success. Certainly there is every indication that Tony Schumacher is destined to make it to the top of his field. The American drag racer has dominated the NHRA Top Fuel class for the past four years and it seems this year will be no different.
