Tony Schumacher has quite a history here Memphis. In 2000 his dragster crashed at 315 miles per hour and it was a miracle he lived. In 2003 he won, and in 2005 he's chasing a 2nd consecutive points championship.
To the Memphis Motorsports Park we go for the finals of the Mid-South O'Reilly Nationals. Millington's Clay Millican gets to race in his hometown but it's not one of his better runs an elapsed time of 5.22, at 225 miles an hour...doesn't advance him.
Schumacher turns in a great run in the semi's with 4.67 e.t. at 308.78. mph. But he smokes 'em in the final against Rod Fuller and Fuller wins the top fuel category at 4.612 e.t., 313.07 m.p.h.
Tim Wilkerson, defeated Phil Burkart to win the Funny Car division. 5.11, 287.
