Shawn Cowie took over the lead in the battle for the Top Alcohol Dragster national championship following his third win of the season. Coming off a victory at the recent NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, Cowie qualified his supercharged dragster in the No. 1 spot in the quick field with a 5.214, then proceeded with wins against Gary Cooper, former champ Chris Demke, Jackie Fricke, and rookie Rachel Meyer in the final. In the final three rounds, Cowie was amazingly consistent with runs of 5.230, 5.222, and 5.215.
