The latest update as of July 27, 2020

With the NHRA Lucas Oil Series Central Region event at Heartland Motorsports Park completed over the weekend, we've got the updated national points standings for Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car tabulated and posted below. With his win in TAD, Robin Samsel jumped back into the Top Ten for the first time in two months, moving into a four-way tie for sixth place. Samsel defeated Rachel Meyer in the final round, with a 5.356 - 268.97 pass, over the close - but not close enough - 5.439 - 262.69 for Ms. Meyer.

Rachel likewise advanced in the standings, from #8 to a tie with Joey Severance in fourth place. Her sister Megan, was upset in the first round by Christine Chambless and remained in a tie for second place in the standings. Since she already had two regional wins, which had gavin her maximum regional points, the early exit from eliminations had no bearing on her hopes for a repeat world championship. Another top ten runner, James Stevens lost a close first round match and waived his points to remain in the four-way tie for sixth place.

TAD National Points Standings - July 26, 2020

On the Funny Car side, points leader Doug Gordon won his fourth regional event (in five tries) at Topeka, to show that the BETA Motorcycles team is really on a mission in 2020. They've been national contenders for quite a few years, but never seem to have much luck in final rounds. With a new sponsor and a new Jonnie Lindberg-built car, this is looking like it could be their year.

With a runner-up finish to Gordon, Chris Foster moved into the Top Ten, pulling even with semi-finalist Bob McCosh for eighth place in the standings. First round losers in the short six-car field, Kris Hool and Bryan Brown, remained outside the top ten list and waived their points, as did McCosh and another first-round finisher, Kyle Smith.
