The latest update as of November 5, 2021

After posting the updated Countdown to the Championship points for the PRO cars, it's time to put up the Top Ten standings for Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car. With one regional event, at Las Vegas this coming weekend, and one national event, at Pomona next weekend, left on the schedule it's not likely there will be any significant changes in the final points standings.

With both championships already awarded to Rachel Meyer and Sean Bellemeur, the only possible moves would be for Joey Severance to move up from his current #9 position to move into a tie with Jasmine Salinas for the #6 spot on the table in Dragster, and for Brian Hough to jump from #6 to #3 in the final Funny Car standings. Nick Januik could, with a good finish at Pomona, move into the #5 or #6 position in the final tally.

As can be by the yellow highlights next to Shawn Cowie (for the Auto Club NHRA Finals) and Joey Severance for the West Regional at Las Vegas, they are the only two racers that can still gain points this season. Cowie can't move up from his #3 position, but Severance could, with an event win at Las Vegas, pass Duane Shields and Matthew Cummings and move into a tie with Jasmine Salinas for the #6 spot in the final standings. We're not sure how tiebreakers are decided in the Lucas Oil Series, but it may not come into play.

Even though the national championship has gone to Sean Bellemeur, he can increase his point totals with a final round finish (winner or runnerup) at Pomona, while #2 Doug Gordon has run out of points earning capability. Lower down in the standings, Brian Hough has two chances to increase his totals (Las Vegas regional and Pomona national) and with back-to-back wins - not out of the realm of possibility - could overtake three racers to finish in the #3 position. One spot behind Hough is Nick Januik who could pass Hough (if Hough fails to gain any points) and Kris Hool to finish in the #5 spot if he can take the Auto Club Finals event title at Pomona.
