    NHRA: Anderson, Dixon and Wilkerson claim victories in Ohio

    NHRA Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson had about as good of a weekend as you can get.

    He followed his Saturday win in the K&N Challenge with a win in the Summit Pontiac GXP on Sunday at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. Anderson's sponsors are happy, and he left Norwalk, Ohio, with $75,000 more than he arrived with.

    Other winners on Sunday were Larry Dixon in Top Fuel and Tim Wilkerson in Funny Car.

    Anderson beat Allen Johnson in the final round with a convincing 6.722-second pass at 204.54 mph. Johnson got out of the groove and rode close to the center line before lifting the throttle in his Mopar Dodge Avenger and surrendered the win.

    Top Fuel ace Dixon knows a thing or two about the boost winning races provides. He guided the Al-Anabi Racing dragster to a seventh win on the season and third in the last four races by beating Antron Brown's Matco Tools dragster in the finals.

    Dixon didn't give Brown much of a chance, overcoming a 0.025-second reaction time deficit and winning a great side-by-side drag race with a 3.880 seconds at 313.29 mph to Brown's 3.907 seconds at 307.65 mph.

    Meanwhile, Wilkerson maintained Ford's momentum in the Funny Car class by beating points leader and fan favorite John Force in the finals.

    Levi, Ray & Shoup Ford pro Wilkerson passed Force's Castrol Ford Mustang early in the race and zoomed away to win his second national event of the year with a 4.191 seconds at 300.40 mph to Force's 4.272 seconds at 290.88 mph.

    I would love to head back east and carch a stretch of a few NHRA races in a row. Maybe when they get the 1320 back.

    They've gotten quite creative given their 1,000' rule. Still, sitting or even standing next to the tower almost 100ft up in the stands top fuel will shake your body.

    I had a chance to check out qualifying on Friday at Norwalk...pure madness of the work that goes into those vehicles.

    That is just one of those things. Purely impossible to understand unless you have done it.
