Massey on NHRA winning streak, defeats Worsham for Top Fuel title

Spencer Massey raced to his second consecutive Top Fuel victory, beating points leader Del Worsham in the NHRA SuperNationals on Sunday at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park.

Mike Neff (Funny Car), Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also won their categories at the eighth of 22 events in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series.

Massey beat Worsham in the final with a run of 3.821 seconds at 319.07 mph.

“It’s awesome to beat the Alan Johnson/Al-Anabi/Del Worsham car in the final,” said Massey, a four-time winner in his career. “The Al-Anabi car has been on a roll and running killer numbers, so we knew we had to be on our ‘A’ game, that the car had to run well and I had to be on my game.”

Worsham kept the points lead with his fourth final-round appearance of the season, while teammate and defending event winner Larry Dixon reached the semifinals to move past seven-time world champion Tony Schumacher for the second spot in the standings.
