The following excerpt is from a teleconference featuring the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher.
MODERATOR: Tony, Talk a little bit about the significance of this eighth championship and what that means to you.
TONY SCHUMACHER: Well, it`s fantastic. Part of it because it`s hard to win one anymore. In any way, shape or form it`s the most difficult racing that I`ve ever seen. But to come off a four year sabbatical basically after winning six in a row, that`s hard. It`s hard to take. We stuck our ground. Now, we didn`t go off and disappear. We finished second, I think, twice in those four years. We still had a good car. We had a great car. It`s just more difficult to win these days.
