While Top Fuel driver Steve Torrence was picking up a check for a mere $50,000 as winner of the NHRA Fall Nationals Sunday at Dallas, Texas, three different drivers in far less powerful cars were departing Rockingham Dragway more than $100,000 richer after big victories in the SFG Super Bowl of Drag Racing.

The five-day bracket race attracted more than 500 participants from across the country and, at week’s end, Marshall Grooms of Washington, D.C., “Racin’ Jason” Lynch of Pleasantview, Tenn., and Shane Carr of Bradenton, FL, had grabbed off the biggest shares of the purse.

Grooms got the final $100,000 by driving his dragster past the 1972 Chevy Vega of Dave Triplett of Eustis, Fla., on Sunday.  Lynch got a win for the door cars on Saturday when he and his Chevy S-10 pickup ran dead-on their 5.920 target to hold off the dragster of Kyle Cultrera of Eliot, Maine.  Carr got the first big check by beating Graham’s John Lassiter and his 1966 Chevelle on Friday.

Fairmont’s Eric Thomas and Winston-Salem’s Tommy Plott won $20,000 and $10,000, respectively as the winners of preliminary races on Wednesday and Thursday.

Dragsters and door cars raced separately each day to determine a winner with the two champions facing off for the big money.  There also were separate races for Top Dragsters each day, two of them won by Scott Taylor of Portage, Mich., the other by C.J. Drake of Binghampton, N.Y.
