NHRA drag racing returned to Indianapolis for the 68th U.S. Nationals, held at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park from Aug. 31 - Sep. 5. The week saw all kinds of weather and fast racing.
After six straight days of activity on the track, it all wrapped up on Labor Day. One of the biggest stories was in the Pro Stock category, where veteran Greg Anderson became only the 5th driver ever to win his 100th event, the U.S. Nationals. The Top Fuel category was won by Antron Brown, who took the trophy in his first year as a team owner. Ron Capps was able to beat Robert Hight in the finals to get his elusive first Wally in the Funny Car category. In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Matt Smith beat Karen Stoffer in the finals to secure his 2nd U.S. Nationals win.
The series now gets a 10-day break before heading to Mohnton, PA, for the Pep Boys Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, September 15-18.
