In his last three appearances at Royal Purple Raceway in the Top Dragster presented by Racing RVs class, J.R. Baxter has yet to see anything other than a win light in his lane. After winning the Top Dragster class in Houston in 2015 and 2016, Baxter completed the ultra-rare three-peat when he topped fellow Texan William Kruse in the final round. In a rematch of the 2015 Houston final, Baxter ran his winning streak to 15 consecutive rounds after Kruse fouled by .004-second. On race day, Baxter’s dragster was solidly in the 6.1s, making it one of the quickest cars in the field.
