Steve Picks the Top 80 NHRA Round Winners
By Steve Klemetti
With the NHRA Top 50 coming to a close soon, I thought it would be interesting to check out the top 80 drivers by rounds run in eliminations.
I only count nine more out of the remaining 11 spots (the ones with the asterisks) that I figure will be in the NHRA Top 50. There are two I don't know about. Mike Dunn or Gary Scelzi could make it; it's hard to believe Yates, Allen, or Cory Mac will.
Scelzi is #16 in the number of third round or higher finishes. Mike Dunn comes in at #22. Newberry is #9 in third round or higher, but Austin and Manzo have more championships.
