John Force dominated a dramatic Sunday at the Auto Club NHRA Finals, first winning the season championship in Funny Car and then the event itself. Force was joined in the winner’s circle at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona by Antron Brown (Top Fuel), Shane Gray (Pro Stock), and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle). The win was the first of rookie Gray’s career and the first of the season for Brown.

Championship Sunday lived up to its billing as the title battles in Funny Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle had the fans at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona and across the world watching and listening on the internet on the edge of their seats. After Larry Dixon ended whatever drama existed still in Top Fuel with a first-round victory to seal his third career title and joined Greg Anderson, who locked up the Pro Stock title in qualifying Saturday, as a recrowned former champ, Force took advantage of a first-round loss in Funny Car by points leader Matt Hagan to defeat Gary Densham in round one and Bob Bode in round two to win his 15th career championship. Rookie rider LE Tonglet similarly drove through the door opened by Pro Stock Motorcycle frontrunner Andrew Hines’ first-round foul to dispatch Matt Guidera in round one and then Steve Johnson to win his first championship. Tonglet is just the third rookie to win a Pro championship, on the heels of Frank Hawley (1982) and Gary Scelzi (1997). [Final 2010 standings]

In his eight victories in the Auto Club Finals, Force has beaten eight different opponents in the final round in front of a very partial crowd, defeating Kenny Bernstein, Cruz and Tony Pedregon, Bruce Sarver, Tommy Johnson Jr., Del Worsham, Jack Beckman, and now Jeff Arend. The final was as good as they come as Force eked out a 4.08 to 4.10 victory.

“We went all year with the lead and then we stumbled at Reading when the clutch pedal fell off and couldn’t get it in reverse,” said Force. “We sat with the guys in meetings week after week, ‘We can’t make mistakes.’ We opened the door for Hagan, and he took advantage of it. He came over and congratulated me. Hagan is a class act. He’s got a lot of championships ahead of him; it’s going to happen. But we got it here. The shot around the world was by Bobby Tasca in that Ford Mustang when he took him out first round because we couldn’t count on this kid Hagan to stumble. We knew if we got him in the final it was too late. There was no national record, so somebody had to get him, and Bobby got him, and that opened the door for us.

“You got to give it to a great bunch of guys led by Mike Neff teamed up with Bernie [Fedderly] and [Austin] Coil — so much experience there, so many championships. It just brought new energy to this team. This is really a great group of kids I’ve got on this car. I see the tears in their eyes, the emotion. They’re supporting me when I run out of steam, taking the Full Throttle can out of my hand when I go overcenter. It’s just a great bunch of guys.”

Force, with the championship already clinched, kept the hammer down to the reach the final round, the 213th of his amazing career and 11th this season, by wheeling his 25th anniversary Castrol GTX Mustang past Densham, Bode, and then Melanie Troxel in the semifinals. Force was the class of the field, running 4.11, 4.16, and 4.13 in the three rounds prior to the final.

Arend, who lives just a few miles from Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in San Dimas, reached his third final of the season and the sixth of his career at the wheel of the Kalitta Motorsports DHL Toyota. After opening with a 4.29 on a solo pass after Paul Lee broke on the burnout, Arend’s yellow machine ran back to back 4.18s to defeat No. 1 qualifier Ashley Force Hood and Tasca. The race with Bob Tasca III was a thriller, as Arend got the win light, 4.181 to 4.186.

Brown recorded his milestone 25th career victory by denying Shawn Langdon his first. After Langdon smoked the tires early in the run, Brown raced to a 3.84 that was punctuated by a top-end fire that lit up the darkened Pomona sky. Brown, who won the Auto Club Finals 10 years apart – in 1999 on a Pro Stock Motorcycle and last year in Top Fuel – hadn’t won a final round in five appearances this season.

“It just makes the whole year just that much better now because we got that win,” said Brown. “It’s been a real trying and stressful year for our team. We went through a whole bunch of ups and downs. From Phoenix and everything else, we bounced back. We made it to some finals. We’ve just been working our tail off, and the difference of it is we switched a lot of stuff around, trying to get better. We went through it, and we definitely have a hot rod that has more power, but it was just getting the clutch to work with it. Brian [Corradi] and Mark [Oswald] and the rest of the guys on the team have been working hard on it, and we’re finally starting to get it together.

“These last four races, it all started coming together. We were getting close every time. We don’t do very well in qualifying because we’re still trying to feel it out, and then on race day, we’re plucking it off and getting better and better. This race, we were able to get downwind today and get it done, and it feels really good, believe me.”

Brown drove his Brian Corradi- and Mark Oswald-tuned Matco Tools dragster to the final round, the 54th of his career, from the No. 8 spot, trailering Steve Torrence, low qualifier Tony Schumacher, and Morgan Lucas with a powerful display of consistency: 3.851, 3.858, and 3.863. Lucas, teammate to Langdon, had his finest outing of the season but red-lighted to Brown in the semifinals.

Langdon raced the John Stewart-tuned Lucas Oil dragster to his third career final round and second of the season, by sitting down Ron August Jr., Doug Kalitta, and newly crowned champ Dixon with a trio of ever-quickening passes, following up a pair of 3.90s with a 3.863 holeshot victory over Dixon’s 3.856. Langdon got the drop at the Tree, .050 to .067.

A feel-good winner was guaranteed in Pro Stock with Gray looking for his first career win and Coughlin, who during qualifying announced that he’d be stepping away from the Pro Stock class in 2011, looking for a last hurrah. Gray zapped one of the class’ best leavers with a .010 light and then outpowered him, too, 6.566 to 6.658. The win also boosted Gray to fourth place in the final standings.

Gray, who in any other season would have been the rookie of the year if not for Tonglet’s herocis, reached the third final round of his debut season by wheeling the Big O Tires Pontiac past Dave Connolly with a 6.60, then running back-to-back 6.59s to defeat Kurt Johnson and No. 2 qualifier V. Gaines.

“How do you compete with LE? A rookie winning the championship? Shoot, he’s the man,” said Gray. “I told my wife when I started this deal, ‘You know, honey, it would be a great thing if we just qualify. If I can just get in the car and just start it without people laughing at me,’ so for our team to finish fourth in the points and win a race, it’s a God-given thing that we were blessed with today and all year. We have received way more than we deserve.

“I’m not real sure if this has soaked in yet. I remember we staged up, I let the clutch out, and the yellow car disappeared, and I put the car in high gear, I looked out the window, and he wasn’t there. I went across the stripe, and my light came on, and it was like, ‘What just happened?’ ”

Coughlin went out on a high note by reaching the final round, the 83rd of his Pro Stock career. Coughlin opened his Sunday account in style, dispatching recently minted world champ Greg Anderson in round one on a holeshot, 6.587 to 6.579, then also zapped Rodger Brogdon on the Tree in round two, 6.588 to 6.578. Coughlin slowed to a 6.62 in the semifinals, but the race had already been decided by low qualifier Allen Johnson’s -.010 red-light. Coughlin had won the Finals three times previously, most recently in 2007.

Krawiec, who won the motorcycle season-opening Gatornationals but hadn’t been back to final round since, rode home his victory in style with a blistering 6.811, the quickest pass in class history and a new national record backed up by his 6.84 in qualifying. Hector Arana, knowing the power of Krawiec’s V-Rod, took a shot at the Tree and red-lighted with a -.008 reaction time.

“It sure is a nice way to end the season,” said Krawiec. “I didn’t know we could set a record here but I’m glad to be guy holding that time slip. Weather has been phenomenal and that was a big help. The way this class is, you never know where record can be set. For our team it was a bitter sweet day but this [win] does takes the sting out of Drew not winning the championship. When you don’t win it makes it a bit difficult on everyone. We fight every year for championships and there are a lot of high highs and low lows.

“I would say this is the best bike I have had all year if not for my entire career. Matt [Hines, crew chief] gave me an awesome tune-up and I had my best 60-foot time of the year [1.05-second] and that made the difference.”

Krawiec, who won this race last year and was runner-up at the 2008 Finals, marched his military-themed Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Harley Davidson, ended Tonglet’s Cinderella day in the semifinals, inducing a -.001 red-light from the new champ, to reach the final round, just his second of the season. Krawiec, who qualified No. 1, defeated Freddie Camarena and Michael Phillips for the right to avenge teammate Hines against Tonglet, but his 6.92 ceded lane choice to Arana.

Arana’s reign as Pro Stock Motorcycle world champ ended at this event, but the rider of the Lucas Oil Buell went out on a high note by reaching his fifth final of the season. Arana, the No. 2 qualifier, raced past David Hope, Angie Smith, and Jim Underdahl to reach the money round.

Schumacher, Force, Anderson, Tonglet score huge wins in Las Vegas

Championship-crucial wins by Tony Schumacher, John Force, Greg Anderson, and LE Tonglet capped a day of high drama at the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals, the second to last event of the 2010 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series

Championship scenarios were foremost on everyone’s mind, and the races got a shake up across the board. The Funny Car battle went as advertised, with first-place Matt Hagan and second-place John Force working their way through the ladder to face off in the final round, which Force won to cut Hagan’s lead to 37 points headed to the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in two weeks.

Anderson entered as the points leader in Pro Stock and only improved that, going from 38 points to 115 points ahead of Mike Edwards with a final-round defeat of teammate Jason Line. Edwards’ hopes for a successful title defense in Pro Stock took a hit when he lost on a holeshot to Greg Stanfield in round one and Anderson capitalized to his fullest.

Championship battles at a glance
Top Fuel: Dixon leads Schumacher by 85 points
Funny Car: Hagan leads Force by 37 points
Pro Stock: Anderson leads Edwards by 115 points
PS  Motorcycle: Hines leads Tonglet by 34 points

Tonglet, who has now reached the final in all five championship playoff events and won four of them, cut points leader Andrew Hines margin from 72 to 34 when he defeated Matt Smith in the final.

Top Fuel points leader Larry Dixon’s championship hopes improved when second-place Cory McClenathan broke a valve keeper and dropped a cylinder in a round-one loss to Australian newcomer Mark Mariani, but Dixon’s gain was only 20 points as he, too, dropped a cylinder in round two and fell to Dom Lagana. Schumacher then emerged as Dixon’s newest threat by winning the event and moving past Cory Mac into second place. Schumacher is now 85 back of Dixon while McClenathan is 106 back. A driver can earn a maximum of 150 points at an event, so both are still technically, but not realistically, in the championship race.

Schumacher, who qualified No. 1 and set the national speed record at 325.14 Saturday, bettered that number Sunday. After defeating Bob Vandergriff with a 3.79 at 324 mph in round one, Schumacher lowered the boom on Shawn Langdon with a 3.820 at 325.61 to bump the record higher. Schumacher reached the final, his eighth of the year and the 103rd of his career – and second place in the standings – by defeating David Grubnic with a 3.80 to earn final-round lane choice. He finished off his fifth win of the season and 67th of his career with a 3.84 conquest of Lagana.

“It was a fun car to drive this weekend,” said Schumacher. “I’m starting to feel a little bit of pressure again. We’re in Vegas and I’m not in the points lead, I’m not even that close, and all of a sudden we have this fast car. The thing is amazing. It’s just going down the track dead straight perfect. We tested a couple of times this year and we’ve been working on a couple of different things and it was just an excellent combination. The last run wasn’t all that stout. The track got good and it pulled the center of the tires out.

“I’m looking forward to going to Pomona. Like I said it back in ’06 and ’07, it’s kind of out of my hands. More than likely I won’t run Larry. If we do run each other it will be in the later rounds and it won’t matter. We have to go out and set a national record and win the race, and he has to go out and get beat or not show up, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to show up. We’re a long way out and we’re a super longshot, but we’re great at coming from behind.”

Lagana, who had not won a round in a year in which he has split driving chores with brother Bobby Jr., was competing in just his third race of the season and reached his first career final round by powering his Big O Tires dragster past Clay Millican, points leader Dixon, and Antron Brown. Lagana, who qualified in Topeka and Reading, defeated Brown in the semifinals, 3.89 to 3.95.

The Funny Car final had fans on their feet seeing whether Hagan would head to Pomona with a nearly insurmountable 77-point lead or if Force could carve it down to less than two rounds. The final was over quickly as Hagan lit the tires and Force raced to a 4.23 victory.

“We won Pomona and came here in April and won,” said Force. “We had the lead all year, but in Reading we had the clutch pedal fall off, so I couldn’t get the car in reverse and didn’t get a chance to race, and [Hagan] took advantage of it. He’s a great racer. I love the kid’s personality. We talked every round before we raced. He’s got big money behind him and he’s got a great team. Our attitude was we have to eat up every point. We got some points in qualifying that put us back in it and we got him in the final.

“[Crew chief] Mike Neff has been unbelievable taking the lead on this car, and so have [co-crew chiefs] Austin [Coil] and Bernie [Fedderly] for allowing that. The kid has brought a young energy to fight this fight. They put me on a diet — I’ve dropped 10 pounds since Reading — and they put the car on a diet. It came [here] without paint, and it came without a lot of stuff. We hung the fire bottles high to transfer weight, and we got our 60-foot [times] back, and we can race with him now.”

Force, who worked hard in qualifying to trim Hagan’s lead below three rounds, reached the final round, his record 212th and 10th this season, by fending off Jeff Arend, Melanie Troxel, and Bob Tasca III. Force got a scare against Troxel when his Castrol GTX Mustang lost traction downtrack but he held on for a crucial 4.71 to 4.85 win.

Hagan and crew chief Tommy DeLago looked flawless all day with passes of 4.07, 4.13, and 4.09 to defeat Tony Pedregon, Jim Head, and Ashley Force Hood, whose bid to help her father’s title hopes went up in smoke early, sending Hagan to his fourth final of the year.

Anderson and teammate Jason Line had more reason to celebrate beyond the championship jackpot as the event marked the return to the track of team owner Ken Black, a Las Vegas resident. Black had been sidelined by health issues all season and his presence no doubt served as a great motivator for the team. Any concerns about whether team orders would be in place to benefit Anderson were answered when then left almost together, .022 to.033 favoring Anderson, and ran 6.654 to 6.656.

“I couldn’t have drawn up this weekend on paper any better than what happened today,” said Anderson. “It was a wonderful, wonderful day. I’m almost speechless, and I know that sounds odd for me. I hope this goes miles toward Ken [Black’s] recovery. Now he’s planning on attending Pomona. I can’t think of better medicine for the man. This is why our team works so hard, because we want to do so much for Ken.
 
“We have a lot of pride, Jason and I, as does the rest of our team. I think we’ve proved over many years now that we don’t have any team orders when we race each other, and we’re not going to start now. If you’re going to win, you have to feel good about yourself. Jason did a great job today taking out Greg Stanfield in the semi’s. If he hadn’t done that, Stanfield might have gotten to me in the final, and we’d be talking about a whole different story.”

Both Summit Racing Equipment Pontiacs were bracket-like all day, with Anderson running 6.664, 6.663, and 6.677 to beat Rodger Brogdon, Jeg Coughlin Jr., and rookie Shane Gray, who red-lighted in the semifinals to Anderson, who reached his seventh final of the year and the 95th of his career.

Line’s matching entry ran 6.659, 6.651, and 6.652 to defeat Larry Morgan, Ronnie Humphrey, and Stanfield. Line’s victory over Indy winner Stanfield was key as had Stanfield reached the final he would have passed Edwards for second place and made Anderson’s job in Pomona more difficult.

Tonglet was able to close the gap on Hines by reaching the final round for the fifth straight time and Hines’ streak of final-round appearances was snapped at seven with a semifinal loss to Smith. The final went to Tonglet’s blue Suzuki, 6.95 to 6.98.

“I don’t want to wake up,” said Tonglet. “It’s just been an awesome year since Indy. We came into the Countdown in seventh and after Indy we were No. 2. We’ve been on a roll since then, and we have to keep the momentum going. The Harley team is going to be tough to beat. Andrew has been in this situation before. We just need to keep our heads on straight and see what happens.”

Tonglet, whose playoff win streak ended at the most recent event, in Reading, where he lost to Hines on a holeshot, kept the heat on the points leader despite losing his No. 1 engine in qualifying.

“We hurt the motor that we had run all year in the first round of qualifying and went to our back-up Vance & Hines motor that only had three runs on it,” said Tonglet. “At first we couldn’t get it to run right, but they kept telling us that the engine was a good one, and we kept after it. It seemed to come to life during today’s eliminations.”

Tonglet raced past Bailey Whitaker, reigning season champ Hector Arana, and Jim Underdahl with runs of 6.986, 7.004, and 6.948 to reach the final, the seventh of his likely rookie-of-the-year campaign.

Smith, whose Al-Anabi Racing Buell hadn’t been to the final round since the Norwalk event in June, overcame a scary no-brakes trip into the LVMS sandtrap in qualifying to reach the final, the 24th of his career.

Smith defeated Michael Phillips and Karen Stoffer before upsetting Hines in the semifinals by .002-second, driving around Hines’ imperceptible .039 to .041 holeshot to win, 7.037 to 7.041.

Brad Personett raced to his second victory of the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Series. Meanwhile, Tennessee driver Von Smith clinched the inaugural series championship title in the NHRA’s newest national touring series.

Personett defeated top qualifier Melanie Troxel in the final round. Personett powered his turbocharged ’68 Personett Performance ’68 Camaro to a run of 5.859 seconds at 254.57 mph to hold off the hard-charging Troxel, who trailed with a 5.984 at 244.69 in her In-N-Out Burger ’68 Camaro.

With the victory, Personett, who also defeated Joe Baker, Roger Burgess and Jay Payne in earlier rounds, moved to third in the final point standings.

Smith, who claimed the $50,000 champion’s prize after he took the tree in the first round of eliminations, eventually lost in the quarterfinals in his Barwa/Al-Anabi Racing ’68 Camaro.  Smith claimed victories at St. Louis, Englishtown, N.J. and Bristol, Tenn. during the season to earn the championship title.

The remainder of the top five points finishers are second place Danny Rowe, fourth place Troy Coughlin and race runner-up Troxel in fifth.
