Throwback Thursday

At the recent Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, Tony Schumacher, already the winningest Top Fuel driver in Indy history entering the event, added his 10th career win at the world’s biggest drag race to become the winningest Pro-class driver in the event’s long history, breaking the tie he held with Pro Stock icon Bob Glidden.

The victory came on the 20th anniversary of Schumacher’s U.S. Nationals debut, in 1996, where he scored a surprising runner-up in the Peek Bros. entry. “Indy has been magic for me ever since in every way, shape, and form," he said.

Schumacher joins NHRA reporter Lewis Bloom via Skype in the Wally Parks NHRA Studio to talk about his great U.S. Nationals achievements and look ahead at the Countdown to the Championship.
