The latest update as of August 10, 2022

We've got the round by round results from the Eddyville and Kearney races (FUNNY CAR CHAOS) and seen the updated points table for the series. Looks like we'll be busy for the rest of the week filling in the details for all the photos we've posted from those events. With just two races left for the 2022 season, the pressure is squarely on the racers to step up to get into, or stay in, the Top Ten. With the championship bonus payouts going to the top five racers at the end of the season, there's even more to gain by finishing strongly in the last two races. The first of that duet is coming up on Labor Day weekend at Mo-Kan Dragway (Asbury, MO), before the season finale at the Texas Motorplex on October 7 - 8.

That Motorplex event will be the opening act for an incredible TEN days of drag racing and entertainment action at the Texas Motorplex, culminating with the 37th annual NHRA Texas FallNationals. Getting the chance to perform twice in one year on the huge "stage" that the Motorplex affords is going to be another feather in the cap of what has become a very successful alternate sanctioning body (in NHRA-speak).

The FCC crew has updated the latest points standings and created a "Top Ten Drop" graphic (shown below) to illustrate what the standings would be like after each racer "drops" or eliminates their lowest point earning event from their total. If a racer doesn't attend an event, that counts as their drop race. It's a system that works well for what are, for the most part, hobby racers who can't afford to travel to every race on the 8-event calendar. And that's not adding up the cost of parts and fuel consumed along the way.
