Rachel Meyer, a winner in Gainesville and Charlotte and a runner-up at the season-opening regional event in Belle Rose, La., continued her strong start to the season by beating Shawn Cowie in the Top Alcohol Dragster final round. Meyer set low elapsed time and top speed of the meet during Sunday’s eliminations with a 5.143 at 282.01 mph and finished off the rout with a 5.150 in the final while Cowie slowed. 

Meyer defeated current points leader Jackie Fricke in round one and also carded wins against Matt Cummings and Jasmine Salinas, who reached the semifinals in her second event back following her accident in Gainesville. Cowie, who has been to the final round in each of the four events he has attended this season, topped Karl Brounkowski and Robin Samsel to earn a bye run into the final round.
