    NHRA: U.S.Nationals Results

    NHRA Top Fuel racer Antron Brown on Monday drove to his third Lucas Oil Raceway win as racing came to an end at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Lucas Oil.

    Mike Neff (Funny Car) and Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) were the winners in their respective categories at the final race of the NHRA's regular season before the start of the Countdown to One, the drag-racing series' six-race playoff.

    Brown became the first driver to win the historic event in both Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle when he powered his Matco Tools dragster to a 3.813-second run at 321.73 mph. The final-round performance was enough to get past Del Worsham to secure his fifth win of the season and the 30th of his career.

    “Words cannot describe how this feels,” said Brown. “To come here and win at Indy, the biggest stage in drag racing, means so much. It just goes back to my childhood dream and sitting under those grandstands as a kid and saying ‘I want to do that one day.' It's the greatest feeling I've ever had.”

    With the final regular-season race complete, the Top Fuel field is set for the Countdown to One. Worsham secured his No. 1 spot in the points standings during qualifying, while Kalitta Racing driver David Grubnic locked down the 10th and final spot after both Terry McMillen and Bob Vandergriff lost in the second round.

    In Funny Car, Mike Neff drove his Castrol GTX Ford Mustang past Bob Tasca to secure his first U.S. Nationals win. Neff posted a run of 4.068 seconds at 314.61 mph in the final round to take his fifth win of the season and the sixth of his career. It was also John Force Racing's fifth U.S. Nationals win in the past six seasons.

    “This is the big one, the one you dream about,” said Neff. “It's huge to win here. I've never won here as a driver or a crew chief, so to be able to do it here as both was great. It probably hasn't even sunk in yet.”

    Neff secured his top spot in the Funny Car standings for the Countdown during qualifying, while runner-up Tasca clinched the 10th and final spot after Johnny Gray lost in the first round to Daniel Wilkerson.

    Pro Stock points leader Anderson continued his domination at Lucas Oil Raceway when he held off teammate Jason Line to earn his sixth U.S. Nationals win. Anderson and his Summit Racing Pontiac GXP posted a final-round run of 6.552 seconds at 210.50 mph to get his fifth win of the season and the 70th of his career. It was also his fourth win in the past six races.

    “I feel like it's my first and biggest win ever,” said Anderson. “Every time it happens up here it's just special; it's just magic. I love this place. I think some of the other racers might miss out on how important it is and what it means to race here. There's so much history here. It's just everything about drag racing.”

    While Anderson locked up the No. 1 spot in the Countdown to One, Ron Krisher secured the 10th and final slot when 11th-place driver Ronnie Humphrey lost to Allen Johnson in the second round.

    Rookie Hecter Arana Jr.(BUELL)won his first race,taking the trophy in Pro Stock motorcycle over Eddie Kraiwick.

    I love watching Neff win. What a cool guy and such a great story.
    I did not see even one second of Indy this year. Building a boat that has to be done in two days.
    thanks for the post

    Wasn't me in the boat. It was Chad, my driver. He broke a femur in three places, almost cut off his leg and lascerated a spleen. But he wants to race again, and we took 3rd in the nationals even with the crash.
    Just all in a days life of a boat racer.

    He is expected to fully recover. (at least physically)
    Boat bent one rod, and other than that, is perfectly fine.
