CLERMONT, Ind. - Del Worsham became the sixth driver in U.S. Nationals history to sweep the Funny Car eliminations and the bonus race, beating Frank Pedregon in the final Monday.
Worsham, who earned more than $225,000 during the holiday weekend, had a quarter-mile run of 4.874 seconds at 320.05 mph in his Chevrolet Monte Carlo to hold off Pedregon, who finished in 4.904 at 313.07 in a Dodge Stratus.
"People always ask me which of my wins is more special," said Worsham, who has two victories this season and 21 overall. "It used to be my first win at Atlanta in 1991, but I'm thinking now that the win this weekend overtook Atlanta as my favorite."
Larry Dixon (Top Fuel), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also won their divisions.
FORMULA ONE: Austrian Christian Klien will race alongside David Coulthard for the Red Bull team in the Belgium Grand Prix this weekend. Vitantonio Liuzzi will continue as the team's third driver. Red Bull said it had not decided who will be Coulthard's partner next season.
