Megan Meyer Clinches Back-to-Back World Champs!
When it was all said and done at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Randy Meyer Racing showed up and showed out in the national points with Megan Meyer claiming her second Top Alcohol Dragster championship and Julie Nataas coming in third in the national point standings.
Going into raceday, Megan Meyer lead the Randy Meyer Racing team with a No. 1 qualifying spot with a 5.203-second pass at 271.79 for her first time competing in Las Vegas; Nataas was qualified No. 8 with a 5.360, 268.17.
First round, Meyer had a first-time eliminations matchup against Johnny Ahten. When the tree dropped, Ahten’s dragster did not break the beams and Meyer went straight down the track with a 5.153, 280.02 for the win. Nataas had a first round matchup against Steve Griboski and like Meyer’s pair, this was the first time this duo raced each other in eliminations. Nataas took the win with a 5.367, 260.56 to Griboski’s troubled 9161, 120.34.
