Clayton Roberts won his first national event title in the Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs category in Bristol, and he did it by beating perhaps the best racer in the history of the class, 2015 national champ Jeffrey Barker. Driving his ’02 Cavalier, Roberts closed the deal with a .010 light and a 7.542 on his 7.52 dial, finishing just a thousandth of a second ahead of Barker’s Cavalier. It was Roberts’ second win of the season following his victory at the Division 2 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at GALOT Motorsports Park.
