With his sixth victory of the season, Sean Bellemeur has successfully defended his title in Top Alcohol Funny Car. Bellemeur clinched the title when he drove Tony Bartone’s Hussy Performance Camaro to a 5.40 in the final round to stop Dan Pomponio. Bellemeur was only seventh-quickest during qualifying, but came to life in race day with victories against Phil Esz, Brian Hough, and former champ Shane Westerfield. Bellemeur’s win over Hough was the result of a 5.46 to 5.44 holeshot, and he ran low E.T. of the event with a 5.388 in his semifinal win against Westerfield.
