Former Jr. Dragster racer Afton Swanson had one of the quickest cars in the Top Dragster presented by Racing RVs class in Topeka, and she was the last one standing on Sunday after a final-round win against 2013 Topeka winner Larry Piper. Swanson wheeled her Spitzer Race Cars-built dragster to wins against Mallori Rogers, Bill Swann, and Bob Henry before taking on Piper in the final. Swanson earned the first Wally of her career in style with a 6.202 on her 6.20 dial, while Piper wasn’t far behind with a 6.399 on his 6.37 dial.
