CLERMONT, Ind. (AP) — Tony Schumacher won the Traxxas Nitro Shootout on Saturday night to earn $100,000 on Saturday night in the U.S. Nationals.
Schumacher, a seven-time Top Fuel season champion who has nine NHRA victories at Lucas Oil Raceway, beat Richie Crampton in the bonus event with a 3.748-second run at a track-record 328.54 mph. The run also locked in Schumacher as the qualifying leader with two sessions left.
